gimme dat nicotine!

Jeebus, just gimme something.

It's not like I don't like smoking. Why would you smoke if you don't like it??
Coffee and cigarettes. Sitting at a bar (in the past or outside, of course) drinking and smoking. Relaxing after a meal with the last of your wine; these are the things that make life as an adult more enjoyable.

Yea, but I hadda quit. I'll be 45 in a couple years and I don't want to be one of those old farts that never quit and you look all scary and can't walk or whatever. Or you're like that guy in that movie they showed us in the 6th grade with the man that can't blow out the match. The irony of that was probably lost on 12 year olds..
That probably wouldn't happen to me, though. I exercise and eat well and didn't really smoke that much. Not even half a pack a day. Half a pack of delicious American Spirit tobacco. Of course I have tried and failed in the past. Maybe I'll be making this post again. Who knows.

Why does everything fun have to come at a cost? I don't mean fun like what Donnie and Marie think of as fun, but what Hunter S. Thompson found enjoyable. I guess you have to make those vice choices and try to keep them under control.
Fucking bloody hell if anyone thinks I'm giving up my ice cream, though.
Or Kentucky Bourbon.

Good luck with quitting smoking. My wife quit over 4 years ago and hasn't had a relapse.

Quit bourbon??? Bring on the Wild Turkey. And Jim Beam Black, and Old Granddad, Evan Williams...
