The Smokers thread

I notice that a lot of you like to smoke, and are trying to quit for new years........I just want to get a guage on how old you were when you started, and why the you would do such a thing to your body????

You guys know that bad for you, and yet you still spend hundreds a year to kill yourself...think about it this way...if you quit smoking, the money you save could be a new exhuast, helmet, jacket, or trackday

My Grandpa died of emphysema, so I never even touched the stuff

But did you guys start because it was a cool thing to do, or to impress some people???

Quit that before you kill yourself.........moto's are dangerous enough :

Started when I was 16, smoked a pack a day for a couple years. I put them down about a month ago and haven't smoked anything since.

I started because it tastes good, maybe not at first, but after a pack or two they're good, real good.

I ended up quitting because they just mess with your lungs too much. I was actually at one point taking asthma medication just so I could keep on smoking. was pathetic.

The first three days of quitting was absolutely horrible, but after that its been pretty easy. Hopefully I'll stay smoke free for good. Good luck to y'all tryin' to quit.

started @13 to rebel i guess. now it's just a fix thing. you want something and you get it. you get a little bit of satisfaction each time you fix your craving, and it's easy to procrastinate when it's only a pack at a time and they are only 3.00 and they are only right down the street waiting for you.

I started around 15 due to stress. What non-smokers dont know is that stuff is really addictive and im sure all smokers would love to quit and not have the cravings but what non-smokers dont understand is its very hard. I'm sure all smokers know its dangerous, but theres nothing we could do from it. Nothing in life is always safe. This is addicting and I would love to quit =/

as far as stress goes pete, I started working out a lot more because of stress. workout at school during the day, and the later in the evening if i'm still feeling it, plus its good for the body, i'm sure the ladies would like to see more guys in the gym than with some cigs.

that's not a negligible amount of money, but when you think about it, people probably spend just as much on other useless stuff, or maybe even harmful stuff (starbucks)

I started for no apparent reason lol i dunno i picked up one of my dads ciggs when i was like 10yrs old no i didnt start smoking when i was 10 though i guess it was around 15 or so and i would love to quit but like pete said its the hardest thing in the world. But this year im going to do it damnit i dont want to end up like my (real) father (p.o.s. ) and die of the or like my dad and can balrely run 10ft w/o trying to pass out....

This is the year jake quits smoking and too all the other peeps i saw that said they are goiing to quit you had better be ready to quit becouase everytime i see you i am going to give you about it i would like the same in return.

Bud smokers only Bud smokers OnLy.....

Jk.. I smoke like a pack a week. I can go without smoking a cigarette for a day although its kinda hard. The main time I smoke is when I drink. I can smoke like half a pack within 2 hrs. I quit for a whole 2 years but only because of a girl. Then being with her for 5 years drove me back to smoking. ehh... **shrug**

it is my personal opinion that tobacco products should be outlawed. Like i said, my opinion, so don't flame me for it. I think most people that smoke tried cigs before the legal age of 18, and the big tobacco companies know this . Can someone tell me why one of the largest killers in this country is totally legal? Look how many people get sick and die from tobacco products every year. If i was still a smoker, i would hate to see cigs go, but since I'm not, em.

I gladly pay it. Just $1,095 for 7,300 little 7 minute breaks/trips to flavor country. And as far as there being any comparison between smoking and working out. . . hahaha. That would have NO replacement value whatsoever, at least for me. I decided there is no way im going to quit untill im outta college. There are to many temptations and being surrounded by smoking for the most part doesnt help. I started smoking at 18 and now im 22 I have less lung capacity but nothing big-time and I would say my least favorite thing about smoking is when I cant smoke at a restraunt after im done eating. And that is another BIG point. I can go 2 days without smoking as long as im just chillin around my house. However, the second I go out drinking or have a nice meal at a restraunt (I love very spicy food and a cig afterward is like ) I WILL HAVE A CIG. OR SOMEONE MIGHT GET HURT.

Quit when your ready. If you dont REALLY want to quit your not going to succeed.

I have tried to quit 2 times cause other people talked me into it. I had no cravings other than just wanting a cig. 5-6 days later.
