dude 1 : "It's incredible easy to stop smoking." dude 2 : "Why?" dude 1: "Because we are not addicted to cigarettes." dude 2: "What?" dude 1: "we are addicted to nicotin." dude 2: "Same thing!" dude 1: "No it's not. There's nicotin in gum also. Buy it instead of cigarettes! we don't need cigarettes - we just need nicotine. Buy it tomorrow. It's so easy!"
(I use Nicotinell Mint 2mg gum - they're tasty!)
PS: You can chew gum everywhere. Even under water. PPS: Do You live in Sahara? Do You want sand? Call me - I can deliver!
I wouldn't go as far to say that its easy to quit, but you can definitely do it. I used to chain smoke cigarettes (2 packs a day) for almost 10 years. I finally quit last year, and I did it using the Nicorette gum. It really does work. I used the gum for about a month or two and then quit that too. So I've been smoke-free for over a year and I haven't looked back. With a pack of cigarettes now costing $10 where I live, I can't believe how much money I am saving. Smoking sucks.
I was a heavy passive (parents chainsmoked) smoker in younger years. (Oh, those times with yellowcolored almost not see through car windshield or wallcoverings at home changing colornuance from white to yellow... ) I can't stand cigarettes or the smoke from them but occasionally fire up a waterpipe for the fun of it.
I smoked around 10-15 a day for 20 years...but following a life changing experience (dad died in a car crash) decided to quit, used ordinary gum and have been clean now for almost 10 years. I will never ever be tempted to go back to it again. The one drawback is that I put on one and a half stone and haven't been able to shift the extra weight, no matter how hard I try.
I also smoked for a long time. I smoked at least a pack a day on and off for 11 years. It will be 8 years in November that I quit. Now I am one of those bitchy ex-smokers that I thought I'd never be! Smoking does suck!
