My Quit:
I quit (using QuitNet) in 2005 for 6 years and a bad review at work and low self-esteem simmering just under the surface turned me into a closet smoker again. People always say, "You don't look like a smoker!" I can see where they could get that impression - I eat really healthy and don't take anything - not even Advil! Among other instances of "smoking stupidity" I trained and ran a half marathon. The morning of the race, I had a cigarette! (More than 1 actually) And when I was done I couldn't wait to get away to sneak another one for my "reward." The initial buzz of the nicotine was, in part, what I craved. I would buy a pack, sometimes smoking the whole thing, sometimes smoking one/tossing one or smoking like 2 and then flushing the rest - that was expensive.

Inspiration? FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Frequently Asked Question
Q: Do I face fewer health risks as a cigar smoker? answer
Hide The Body Committee- A secretive group whose function would be (if it existed, which it doesn't) to clean up after the mayhem created by frustrated Quitters. Many of our members claim to have not belonged to the HTBC (not that it ever existed). But if it ever DID exist and if Qmembers WERE ever in it, the HTBC would only disappear the messes of other Quitters- never would it initiate destruction on its own. If it ever existed in the first place. Which we're not saying it does. Which, of course, it doesn't. See also: Celery is Under the Left Rear Tire.
