  1. Have a Cigar, my man - hope they were worth it ... https://thehill.com/homenews/media/481234-limbaugh-says-he-has-advanced-lung-cancer Sarge heard all the bullshit back in the day: They're just cigars. You don't inhale. They're not *that* bad ... Sure, buddy. Sure. Old public quotes from Rush: "I think cigars are just a tremendous addition to the enjoyment of life,'' the wildly popular, conservative radio-and-television talk-show host says ... Limbaugh loves sitting back and relaxing with a cigar. "Of course you have to save the Cuban cigars for special occasions. I like keeping things special in my life. So I do smoke some Honduran Punches now and then. And I still have a box of Ashtons and Partagas No. 10's. But this is a special occasion...." "First of all,'' he says, "it's the flavor. The next thing is that they are a reward. I look at them as an indulgence that is special. I like the feel of them in my hand. I'm very expressive with my hands, and when I speak I enjoy having one in my hand. I love the smell of them. In fact, one of the disappointing things about smoking cigars is that when you smoke one, you can't smell it the way it smells when someone else is smoking one. Sometimes I'll just usher people into my office and say, 'Light this,' and ask them to sit there and smoke just so I can smell it. Cigars relax me. They help me to think.." Sarge has just one question: Howdaya like 'em now, Dumbass? EZPZ
  2. Au contraire: You ... and ONLY YOU are in control. You are in FULL control of your smoking status. You CHOOSE to smoke OR You CHOOSE to remain quit You. It is a conscious, willful decision that lies only with you. YOU and no one but YOU, When you can acknowledge this without making excuses ... only then will you be successful at quitting. Stay in contol, my man. EZPZ
  3. Hey Doc - <This> hurts ... Doc: "Stop doing <this> ..." You don't need NRT. You don't need Patches. You don't need Lozenges. You don't need Chantix/Champix. You just need to lay off the Nicotine. You know what you have to "look forward to" ? A long life free of those pesky things (heart-disease, stroke, lung cancer, emphyzema, COPD, gum disease <the list goes on and on and on - take your pick (NOT LIMITED TO ONE-AND-ONY-ONE CHOICE ! (Enter as often as you like!) )) - you can look forward to HUGELY reduced risk(s) of all-of-the-above. There's your reward. This ain't Rocket Surgery, y'know? You know what you need to do. Stop making excuses and hedging and just do it. Do it. EZPZ
  4. You are a non-smoker. You know what to do. The rest, from here, is easy peasy. EZPZ
  5. Because you are an addict. Nothing more. Nothing less. Craves can happen ANY time. How do you think folks with years ... decades, even ... relapse? Either you are committed to quitting or you are not. If you are committed, craves come and craves go. If you are not ... you remain a smoker. Which are you? EZPZ
  6. Don't be stupid. You regret them all. You are simply unwilling/unable to admit such. When you can finally acknowledge this, you will be free and quit. Until then, you will remain a slave. EZPZ
  7. Sarge is gonna have to assume that The Juan has given up again. <sigh...> EZPZ
  8. You ARE the addict. (as is Sarge) (as are all of us) It is fantasy to try and separate ourselves from what we are. EZPZ
  9. Sarge assures you: If you can't be honest ... you can't be quit. "Dignity" or not. EZPZ. And so ... you understand ... EZPZ.
  10. The car crash was incidental / inconsequential to your relapse. You were already looking for an excuse to smoke ... and you found it. EZPZ
  11. Mind over Matter ==> If you don't mind ... it don't matter. EZPZ

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
