Yeah my life's pretty easy but boring

Yes, I have done that, and it indeed, was incredible.

Good luck. Protip: Caffeine tends to enhance the effects of nicotine, as well as aggravate withdrawal symptoms. Try to avoid it if you can (assuming you aren't addicted to it as well, since going through withdrawal for two substances probably isn't going to help).

Caffeine withdrawal sucks so much ass.

oh man, i know all about that, i tend to work a lot so i drink a lot of caffeine. i very quickly found that it aggravates the withdraw symptoms , i think a lot of it had to do with the fact that i would go outside drink a Mountain Dew and smoke a Cigarette, but i am also gonna try to cut back on my Soda as well

Nice job, man. A friend of mine has tried quitting multiple times, but she usually comes back to it after a few months of not smoking at all, so it must be hard. Good luck!

Cigarettes deliver nicotine to the brain faster than any other delivery method, which is a major contributing factor to the addictiveness of any substance. They are most certainly not easy to quit.

Arch, chew delivers nicotine directly into the blood stream due to the thin tissue in lips and gum. not to mention that the chew i do, one pinch is 4X more nicotine then a hard cig... i used to smoke but i quit that **** a long time ago and i found it easier then chew... this **** is wicked evil

plus i think chew is harder because this **** is soooo much cheaper then smokes, i pay 2$ for a can vs. 5.50 for a pack of smokes i used to enjoy

I chew copenhagen... And wonder why I'm poor -_-

Whenever I try to quit i psych myself out and start feeling more of a need for chew.. just because I think about it more. But I used to chew around a can and a half a day... now one lasts me 3-5 days.. so i guess that's a pathetic step. Quit once for 5 days, and another time a few years later for two weeks -_-

however, Good job! keep it up. smoking seems a lot more addictive for social reasons, and the fact you go through one so fast...

I can't drive for long distances or hardly watch movies without chewing >_<

Cigarettes deliver nicotine directly into the lungs where it meets blood being oxygenated on its way to the brain, as well as the rest of the body. Nicotine in general is tremendously addictive, but a significant contributor to the addictiveness of any substance is the method of administration and, consequently, how quickly it produces its effects.

Pssh...

Quitting chew is easy... try quitting meth, been doing this since I was 12 and I'm hooked like a crack baby on life support.
I have attempted to quit several times, but it's just in my line of work you know? Quit for three days, hardcore withdrawl, then my boss finds me a job with a lonely 49 year-old white male with diabetes and a foot fetish and damn, I'm hooked again.

AND TALK ABOUT NOT BEING ABLE TO AFFORD IT.

Shit man I was sucking the glory hole dry for a couple of bucks back in January. Sad stuff man, saaadddd stuff.

Good for you!


On the other hand,I'm gonna try weed tonight, and I hope I can really trust what everyone says that it's not addictive.

Btw, my brother said to quit cigarettes, the easiest way is to smoke up a whole pack at once to the end. He says you'll get so sick of it when you're done smoking, you'll never wanna touch cigarettes anymore. Anyone wanna try?

When I was going out with friends a lot I picked it up. For my graduation party, it was an all out, "smoke and drink like it's water and oxygen" blow out.

I started chain smoking for the first time (I was smoking every so often before that, but not consistently), and it was disgusting, and I couldn't feel my taste buds for days.

But then again I was never addicted to begin with.

congratulations on quitting smoking. probably the most economic thing you could possibly do at this time.

oh.. and the health thing too

I'm lucky that the only thing i'm addicted to is coffee.. if i don't get my few cups i get migraines.

which lead to puking.. puking with a pounding headache is brutal.

Nowhere near as much as nicotine withdrawals though.
I'm sure. I have no experience with nicotine though. I did go from 20-40oz of Vault, a few Mountain Dews, and a random Coke/Pepsi/Dr. Pepper every day to nothing, cold turkey, though. I have but one memory from that first week, and it's me in AP Chem feeling like I was about to die from brain hemorrhaging and wishing I'd just get on with it already.

snuff and especially chew are pretty fast as well, but they give a steady supply of nicotine for a much longer amount of time, and I remember seeing somewhere that a dip is equal to approximately 4 cigarettes.

of course neither is easy to quit, I'm just adding to the conversation.
