Like really miss them. Tomorrow will be two weeks. i don't miss the nicotine, the vape takes care of that i no longer look towards the ashtray to see if I have a fag but its emm I want to smoke, I used to enjoya fag i would really enjoy one now its the ritual of rolling and enjoying a fag I miss most being able. Taylor it to exactly what you want from your smoke at the point in time a long slow burning fag that would be relit on many occasions and last a hundred miles or a quick nicotine hit when your in a hurry a especially rolled for the occasion fag I mist the most every single fag I've ever rolled was especially for the occasion stupid fucking vape
I stopped 3yrs ago now. Used to do 80 B&H a day so started rolling my own. ended up doing 50 gms of baccy every 2days.Best thing I did was stopping, couldn't afford to smoke now. Plus I feel better, dont go dizzy and see lights flashing every time I cough now!
I smoked cigarettes as a kid, then started on cigars age 16 because you don’t inhale.
4 a day average, the trouble is, they have gotten bigger over the years,
So I stopped a couple of weeks ago too, they helped me concentrate, my mind is always galloping around thinking of 50 things at once, badly, smoking a cigar helped me stick to the task at hand, and I miss that.
Smoked Park Drive and Woodbines as a kid, then Camel, had a crack at menthol when the showoffs were on Balkan Sobrani or long thin menthols, can't remember the brand then Players Navy Cut which really hit me. Nobody scrounged a 2nd one of those off me. Started on Old Holburn rollies, Cafe Creme, a pipe, then went to JPS, 20+ a day.
Wasted £1000s on tobacco and I'd got a duff chest so you can see how stupid I was. Packed in some 8 or 10 yrs ago and the first thing that I noticed was how those who smoked a lot stank strongly of nicotine. Food tasted better and my sense of smell increased but yes, I do wonder about vaping, I don't like ciggie smoke but cigar and pipe smoke is still good to smell.
The financial side is a major incentive on quitting. Never tried nicorette gum or patches as a few mates had them and still smoked. Can't remember the name of it but tried one of those things that looked like a tampon applicator which you put a little sealed cylinder into. Got some funny looks but only smoked once with that as the world started spinning and that was successful for about 6mths. In the end just went cold turkey.
Soooooo glad I didn't take up smoking! Sorry that comes across as smug.
Smug and sensible.
It is what we did as an an act of rebellion as kids, we were real goody two shoes otherwise, plus I had easy accesss to cigs as I marked up newspapers for our local newsagent, it was amazing how often a customer would come in for some cigarettes at 6am the moment the owner went out the back to the loo or to make a cup of coffee, always the same brands as those me and my friends smoked, doubly amazing.
I am sure he suspected something, but as long as the money was in the till, he tolerated it.
Stress in my life always sent be back to tobacco.
My habit was 20 Euro a week, nothing compared to most people.
I started when I was 13,smoked periodically in my life,had breaks,started again....not a huge smoker,gave up 2 yrs ago.Yes Pyke I feel like a fag sometimes too.Just concentrate on your breathing when you get a fag urge,it soon passes.Better to be breathing in fresh air than baccy.Cigs are continually rising in costs,so thats another reason I gave up.Glad I did.Best of luck hon,you'll get there.
