I agree with RudyLS,these things will kill you.And they are very addicting.Dont believe the tobacco company supported studys.Smoking is like drawing straws,sometimes you will draw the short one.Im 38 and have been smoking for 24 years.I have quit 3 times and have went back.I love my Luckys and Camel nf but know that they will kill me some day if I dont quit.Dan
Now, what do you smoke? I just ordered some Davidoff Classic. Yum.
A good reply.
for me it is a choice. yes. cigarettes are addictive. but i had to quit for a week, and aside from a headache and irritability; suffered no really bad withdraw symptoms(im lucky). when i got back the only reason i started up again was because i still had half a carton and didn't want to waste money, so i smoked them, and bought more later because i felt that it improved my life. i say it is a choice because i know can walk away from smoking if i so choose. i choose to smoke because i enjoy it, not because i NEED to smoke. it is no one's decision but my own, it was my own decision to start and it will be my own decision to stop if i decide to.
call all that rationalization if you want, but...
the definition of addiction is:
A physical or psychological need for a habit-forming substance, such as a drug or alcohol. In physical addiction, the body adapts to the substance being used and gradually requires increased amounts to reproduce the effects originally produced by smaller doses.
i have never NEEDED a cigarette. i have often wanted, but never NEEDED
there were times when i wanted a cigarette before i ever smoked one, and i often find myself wanting a drink, but i have rarely ever drank. some moments just feel like they deserve a substance.
the definition of choice is:
the act of choosing
it seems that everyone here chose to start smoking, and it is possible (though for many VERY difficult) to choose to stop.
addiction follows some choices, therefore: you can have choice without addiction, but not addiction without choice (aside from the babies born addicted to drugs)
does anyone follow me at all with this?
"does anyone follow me at all with this?"
Your story and approach to smoking sounds similar to my experience.
As I write this, I have not smoked a cigarette in four weeks, but I have
a fresh pack of Lucky Strikes snugged in the butter compartment of the fridge.
I might have one Sunday morning with a cup of coffee.
