On another side note, anybody noticed BankShot is like the easiest poster to rile-up in this boards? Only takes couple of words to get him started.
At least DW has a bit more of "i dont care what u say" attitude.

1.) stricked???

2.) Again, its sad that you think "nerd" and inferring being unpopular in highschool is an insult.

3.) It seems as though you are the one getting riled up. Why so butt-hurt???

Now go ahead and run along, son.

Just hope one person quits or decides not to start based on this thread.

Way to not only dodge the question asserting the extremity of your contempt, but also fail to correctly mock me. I have two questions for you, Javat:

Of which failed poster of the past are you a pathetic alternate account??

Is there a particular reason you're so overwhelmingy butt-hurt, or is this just truly who you are??

Cold turkey isn't the way to go. I chain smoked from 14-24. Then I decided to quit slowly. Instead of 2 packs a day, I cut it down to 1 pack and then just replace the moments when I usually smoke with something else like coffee, a banana, an apple, or water. Cause part of the problem is habit, not just a chemical addiction. After a while I smoked less and less. Took around 6 months before I didn't smoke at all anymore. I also cut out drinking/going to the bar for a while cause I tended to smoke when I drank. So for about a year I didn't drink.

Different methods work for different people.

For me it was either cut it out completely, or nothing. I couldn't "quit slowly" and phase it out of my life.

Damn dude. And I'm worried about swimming 300 meters in a pool in 2.5 weeks for my sprint triathlon. More motivation for me I guess.
