I was walking to work the other day and I exhaled my cig smoke over my shoulder, directly into the face of a middle aged woman riding her bike. She started coughing and I got out a quick sorry, which she just laughed at. That was awkward.

G'luck on your mission. What's your history? Lifetime smoker? How much do you smoke?

I'm only smoking a pack per week - as dictated by a strict self-enforced rule of only buying on Saturdays - so I still feel like I can quit whenever I want. I did for about three weeks back in early December. I'm a young smoker though, so I'm still enjoying the pros much more than I'm weighing the cons. I'm sure there will be a gradual shift over my life and eventually I'll convince myself to give it up. The limits I set for myself are really helpful though, and stop me from absentmindedly going overboard.

Stay away from anyone who smokes as much as possible. Most of the battle's keeping your mind off it, was for me anyway.

The thing is people restarted smoking after years.
I guy who worked with me (he is 50 years old and stopped at 30 years) told me that sometimes he still thinks of having a cigarette... after 20 years...
I don't. I smoked from about 19-25, been 10ish months since I stopped, never think about it now.

Good luck, personally, I haven't thought about quitting. I smoke around 2 packs a day, and yes, I'm another person who enjoys coffee with cigarettes. Probably drink a dozen cups of coffee a day, and that may be a conservative estimate.

But quitting can be tough, I've seen it a lot with other people.
