Smoking...

Those electronic cigarettes are pretty cool for when you can't get outside to smoke, but I think I'd miss the tar. It gives the smoke a certain velvety texture which they lack.

What I would like to try is one of those huge vaporisers. ;D

I prefer dark chocolate, although cheese is nice too.

Damn, three grumpy almost-ex-smokers will trawl these corridors... beware the Hermes-Boogie-Faerie..... :P
Due to sinusitis I actually stopped a few days ahead of schedule, but for the sake of solidarity I'll only start counting the days from 7 September. Good luck!

I ran out of ciggies this morning, so I'm also starting a day early..... :-\

Lets see how it goes, good luck to all of us!

I stopped on saturday morning, and it went well, up to a point. :-\

I was ravenous on sat, I ate everything in view, but mostly I could keep the cravings under control and kept myself busy. Went to the driving range (I don't play golf, but was convinced by some of my friends to come hit some balls), had a nice lunch, went to watch some movies at a friends house, and just, kept, eating. It's not the best thing to do but it helped and I was doing OK. - Aside from my digestive system reacting very badly to the cessation, I googled it when it'd settled down and saw it's a known side effect.

That is until we went to bed and GF support started faltering. Somehow we got into a "difference of opinion" after lying down that escalated to full-blown warfare in no time. I tried to reason that I'm not being myself, now is not a good time to discuss these things, and pleaded for some understanding. Unfortunately that didn't help much and there was screaming and slamming of doors very soon after that... - she said I was being unusually "cold", my response was "duh!" - I lay down for a second, and about 1/4 of a second later I was searching the room for where she'd hid the cigs. I found them, walked straight out the door and lit up (I have to confess I was shaking with anger at this point). This was at 12:30 am, roughly 24hours after I'd had my last. She heard me leaving the house and in a flash we were having another tiff outside, before there was more slamming of doors.

This was not my proudest moment, I know, but within minutes I was back into a frame of mind to go and convince her to not sleep on the couch. She confessed she should've understood what was happening, I apologised for being a dick, and we mended the situation. We also agreed we'd do it again next w/e, this time knowing what it was going to be like.

Sorry skeptics, I've failed you already. :(
