Good luck, hombre.

Got a kid on the way in 6 months... that's plenty of incentive.

...I hope.

Congrats on the kid and keep up the good work on the quitting front. :D

I smoked 3 packs per day for 25 years. I recently got it down to a pack per day. I don't think I can get it any lower.

Good luck. Nicotine is nearly as addictive as a drug can be. It takes a lot of strength to overcome it's grip. If you're able to do so, you will feel a great sense of accomplishment that can empower you in many ways.

While I may look like I am... no... the wife has that job.

Dipped since about 7th grade. Started smoking and dipping in high school. Smoked exclusively in college. Smoked post college for a few years. Quit everything for a few years. Dip again. Started whenever I'd do home renovation and yard work. Now I pretty much dip all the time I'm not at work.

So, no... I don't smoke, but I do something nastier. Luckily, there are no second hand effects on those around me, other than nasty spit which usually goes into a bottle or spittoon.

Good cigars or it's just not worth the bother of figuring out where I last left my lighter. I can't remember my last cigarette.

Congrats to Chase and Pblr. Good Luck to you Sully. Come on NP and Skip we can do it. I smoked from 1994 to 2007. I quit for six months and started back up again a few months ago. I just picked up a pack and really wanted to smoke a cig, I had learned how to manage stress better and had just wanted one. I was going to finish the pack in about a week or so and stop for a month and so on. My girl of the time and I had a huge fight about it and so to be rebelious, she went on vaction a few days later and I picked up another pack after I had finished the first. Within that same week after I had an arguement with my supervisor, needless to say he won and started back up again full time. It went from a few a day slowly back to a couple packs a week to a half pack a day up to where it is now about fifteen a day on average. I plan on quitting again here soon. Two burns to the interior to my year old car make it somewhat easier to think about. I might jsut wait until the Feds outlaw it completely then I can go to rehab for it.

Used to have a 2-3 pack a day habit, but gave it up several years ago.

I like seeing the support for those attempting to quit from the former smokers.

Those I've known that quit had extremely hard times getting out of the habit.

Good luck to all that are making a move for their family and their life.

No way. I fully support the freedom of people to kill themselves, but you have to be a friggen idiot these days to start smoking, or not try to quit.
