How to quit smoking successfully

I quit smoking back in 1982. At the time, I had a 3-pack-a-day habit and was cuddling up to 4 packs a day. I couldn't afford it. So I decided that I could at least not smoke for an hour after getting up. A couple of days later, I upped that to an hour and a half, and then went on to two hours, three hours, etc. until I was having one cigarette when the Sun went down. At that point, I decided "Fuck it, the hell with cigarettes!" and quit for good -- by then the amount of nicotine in my body was minimal, anyway, and it was easy to give it up. I'd been a heavy smoker for 20 years when I gave it up. My health improved, my sense of taste came back -- the only thing that didn't was the four-octave singing range I had at age 16, but you can't have everything, can you? Anyway, if any of you out there are trying to quit and haven't succeeded, try this way. It may help.

I did. I know that American-made cigarettes, packed with sugar and cocoa as well as horribly toxic herbs as well as tobacco, are more addictive than heroin or even meth. Si I figured it would be a public service to pass that on to others any way I can -- and I did. :-)
