Is there anyone who wants to stop smoking anymore?

Or have we cured humankind of that nasty habit?

If not there is a Stop Smoking forum that offers advise on quitting and trying e cigs ect.

Why not check it out if you want to quit smoking?

1. As a lifetime nonsmoker, let me say that it's not just a nasty habit for everybody.

Smoking rates for the mentally ill are 70% higher than they are for the general population so something is going on there which is much more than just a "nasty habit".
I have a goddaughter with schizophrenia who lives with me and even though she vapes there are times when she feels the need to smoke tobacco so it's not just the nicotene since she can get a higher dose with an e-cigarette.

2. I stopped by using e-cigs

When I first quit cigs, I was using 32 nicotine strength. Now I am down to 12 and planning on going down to 6 when School is out. Once I get to 0 I just need to stop the hand to mouth habbit

3. I'd like to...but

 

I just can't. I spend so much of my day being triggered that I literally can't stop smoking. The only comfort I have is knowing that the state of AZ uses some of the taxes that I pay for cigarettes on things like education and early childhood development. It's one thing to SAY that you care about education and early childhood development, but smokers in AZ put their money (and their health and life expectancy) where their mouth is on that one.
