I quit 50+ years ago. The hard easy way! Tied to a bed for a week—(could not even move 1/4 inch—- tub in me and a vacuum bottle on the floor beside the bed) with a collapsed lung due to smoking and a fall on the ice.
The Dr. had a pack of Camels in his pocket the first few days and then he had quit too. He told me;” If you like living you just quit smoking!”

Now; not only des second hand smoke make me sick, (so fast some situations are difficult—walking through the haze at the door of some restaurants—in parking lots etc.) I find it hard to believe that I had been that stupid to start with.

I recall seeing the commercials that said 4 out of 5 doctors recommend Camels for their patients who smoke.

I smoked for years. For me L.S.M.F.T. Finally gave it up a few years ago. I only smoke crack now.

Been smoking for 60+ years. Wish I’d never started. Quit a couple times. Longest was 6 weeks. Don’t want to go through that again. Wife begged me to quit quitting.

I had to quit the crack, it was interfering with the opium.

My wife says I smoke after sex, but I never look under the covers to see!

Not since 1-2-1972. Cold turkey. I do not know how I did it. I drank at least a pint of liquor a day at the time. My last drink was 12-15-83. I quit caffeine about two weeks ago due to the diuretic effect it had on me.

Jerry – it’s funny how some of us can remember the dates.
I quit April 3rd, 1977. I was flying to my next duty station and the ticket agent
asked me if I wanted smoking or non . . . I chose non. and haven’t smoked since.
I was too drunk to remember my last day of drinking.

The latest trend in smoking is “vaping” or electronic cigarettes and used for both nicotine and marijuana intake.

The device is referred to as a “juul”
Here is an interesting article that will explain-

Yep,

Been smoking since I was 14 year old…I smoked my first cig in a cotton patch hoeing weeds….I was making $7.00 a day, and a pack of smokes was $.30 a pack….That was 1960, and now I’m 71 and still smoking….When I was in the Army, cigs were $2.00 a carton…..That was in 1966-72…..Now they are ?, depending on what state you buy them in…..!!! I’ve never tried to quit, and have no plans to…..Smoking helps me keep my weight down….if I didn’t smoke, I’d be eating all the time, and big as a hog…..!!!

I’ll enjoy a fine cigar a couple times a year.
Just had one not to long ago.
Sitting on the deck, overlooking the ocean, drinking a beer. Ahh, So relaxing.
