    I have found that the addiction to opiates is much stronger. but it is less accessible. i think that is what makes cigarettes so hard. all you have to do is go down to the store and buy some.
    i smoked for over 10 years at least a pack a day. then i got hurt and was prescribed percocet for the duration of my recovery. so i took the pills as prescribed, usually about 4 a day for almost three months. and by the time they were gone my body had become dependent. the withdrawls were horrible. i mean horrible. cold sweats. sleeplessness. restless legs. anxiety. it was awful and i ended up having to go to the emergency room for what amounted to mental anguish from not being able to sleep. i had a friend who used to be a heroin addict, so i asked him what i should do, he recommended i get good and drunk for a few nights untill i dried out. so i did that and it worked for me. after that i decided well smoking cant be that bad, so i quite smoking and bought an e cig, it worked for me, i would buy juice loaded with as much nicotine as you could get and i would be sick after only a few puffs. after about 8 months of that and slowly lowering the nicotine i just ran out one day and never got more. have been smokeless and vapeless for three years now. it is a great feeling, as a smoker i felt trapped and slaved to something. i couldnt do certain things becuase i needed to smoke. i couldnt even be broke because i had to buy cigs. it is like a whole load being lifted off the shoulders.

    I quit a few years ago, although I do still smoke when drinking. I blame my wife, I didn't smoke for over 4 months until we started dating. She smoked and when we would go out I would bum them from her. It doesn't bother me when I'm not drinking though, so I figure that's good enough.

    Biggest issue now is, a pack a day is hard on the liver.

    All day long with big wads of it. I wasn't eating, drinking, or sleeping I had a cat turd in my lip. Was pretty common for me to go through 4 cans in a day out on the big lake fishing. I was pathetic
