    I smoked Camel, loved them but you cannot get them in the UK anymore.
    Now a packet of Marlborro Red is £12 I suppose about $14.
    I keep saying I am going to give up, then someone lectures me on the subject! Nothing will keep me smoking like being told not too!

    I smoked cigarettes for 15 years and quit 40 years ago. Was up to 3 packs a day. I quit because of severe bronchitis. I remember waking up every day and hacking up brown sh*** for about a week or so after I quit.

    I think it depends on how much. I smoked way too much.

    It's a stupid habit. I smelled bad, my teeth were yellow, I hated the smell and I flicked ashes all over. I used the patch to quit. I'm glad that I did.

    Cheers,
    Jason Bourne

    I'm small and smoked 2 packs a day when I was a smoker. Heavy chronic bronchitis. When I went to 1 pack I felt healthy. Problem is....Never could stay at one pack.

    I really despise people who want to tell other people how they should live. Smokers have been treated really badly IMO and it's legal. I have always been all about freedom, as long as you're not violating someone else's rights. The sheer audacity of pot smokers I know expecting me to jump on their freedom train, after the way I've been treated for wanting to smoke cigarettes disgusts me.

    I use 'snus' which is a Swedish form of tobacco you put under your lip (currently, there is no research showing any negative effects of this product, yet it is under attack by the EU). I can go months without it and only use it as a form of "relaxation product".

    During summer, I will smoke a few ciggies because I like to have one as I ponder on life or chill with my mates.

    To me, tobacco is a fantastic product that, if you are a mental adult with no issues, won't kill you and that probably is less dangerous than Coke and Skittles. Here in Europe, there is a serious "War on Tobacco" going on and I actually think it might be completely illegalised in the future.

    Smoking kills, but so does guardianship.

    I quit smoking 2 years ago. Glad I did. But I still hangout with my friends when they smoke. I hate the reputation smokers have. Who's business is it if someone wants to chief a lung dart?

    The problem is that it's hard to smoke cigarettes without violating someone else's rights. Smoke travels through the air. That said, as long as I (or my kids) don't have to go through the smoke, please feel free to smoke. Smoke in your own home or outside, just don't do it where I pay people to prepare my food.

    gosh .. a lot of smokers and ex smokers here. seems odd, when you live in a country which doesn't have many of either.

    You used nicorette for three years, any side effects? I'm on round two of trying to kick nicotine. Tried for about a month, a year and a half ago. I may be wrong, but the gum seemed to irritate my mouth a bit, seems to be doing so now.

    I didn't notice any. I tried the patches but had some skin irritation.
    Tried a lower dose of the gum? I think I started on 4s but changed down to 2s. no mouth problems.

    I used to chew but it made my sensitive tummy ache too much. Smoked a few ciggies, pipes, and cigars back in the day as well.

    But I'm old now and am a confirmed teetotaler. No tobacco, alcohol, or less than legal stuff for me for the rest of my life. :)
