Anyone have any luck quitting smoking?

    Get your tongue pierced. You physically won't be able to smoke (swollen tongue) and if you try, it will hurt like hell from the fresh wound. This will last about a week, long enough to get you over the hump.

    Forget healthy snakcs. Fill the void with cheeseburgers.

    I've smoked through almost every illness known to man.

    No matter how much it makes me feel worse, it makes me feel better.

    My body loves it some nicotine.

    By the way, I didn't think anything could taste worse than nicotine gum ...
    Until I accidently bought the lozenges.

    Worse than ass-to-mouth?

    Rancid pastrami?

    Ho bad was it. Because I might go on a quitting spree again.

    Also, dipping snuff will really help you quit.

    I don't know if they still sell them, but for me Quest cigarettes were money.

    For those of you unfamiliar with them: First step is 2-3 weeks of Quests with 2/3 the normal nicotine; second step is 2-3 weeks of Quests with 1/3 the normal amount. Then, with step three, are these awful, awful Quests with no nicotine at all (it's like smoking paper) and you smoke those until you're just sick of holding a round piece of crap that's on fire.

    That's what worked for me after quitting coldturkey halfheartedly didn't work, and patches didn't work. Whole process from Reds to Quest 3 took about two months.

    I haven't had a cigarette in nearly three years but, strangely, I can still have a cigar from time to time without picking cigarettes back up. Hardest parts were weddings, going out to bars and going to Las Vegas.

    But here I am, smoke free.
