is it just me?

<t>I really appreciate the constructive thinking that goes into Joel and Zep's essays. However I find the constant congratulations frustrating when I'm looking to discuss a particular aspect of the process of quitting and maintaining a quit. Also as a long time quitter (and relapser), I find a lot o...

What exactly is a craving?

<t>at 10 days (with a zillion previous failures behind me), I am very determined and careful to never have another cigarette . However, at 10 days, when I get a craving, I am curious to know, exactly what this thing is. If the nicotine is out of my body and this is not a physical reaction, then I mu...

Reasons People Want to Quit Smoking

<t>why am i quitting? <br/> <br/> I'm scared of dying. I've got to die sometime, but the later the better please, and I'd like it to be a peaceful falling asleep in my hammock in my garden, and not waking up, rather than a prolonged, humiliating, dehumanising, painful death via cancer. <br/> <br/> A...
