    I'll second the use of chantix!!! I smoked every day since I was 15 and am now 25. I took chantix for only 30 days and am proud to say I am almost 60 days without touching a cigarette.

    A few years ago, my wife, a long term Diabetic, had to have ultrasounds done of her lower legs.
    The lady technician told us that the majority of her cases were "Smokers and Diabetics"!

    My dad smoked for 57 years. Decided to quit. I kept seeing people on fb using Stevia in liquid form which is a natural sweetener used to curb cravings

    I got him some. He is the ultimate critic, called him 8 hrs later to ask, "it's weird it works" he has now gone a month without and puts a few drops on his tongue when he craves.

    Google Stevia and nicotine

    It was my dislike for Granholm and taxes that caused me to quit it, must be 15 years now. No way was I going to pay those ridiculous cigarette taxes being proposed to help support the hands out crowd in this state so I woke up one morning and just did the cold turkey trick and never looked back.
    No more hacking in the morning and feeling terrible until that first smoke, I did put on weight but then took up bike riding and got in shape which I still do in lesser amounts now being almost 60.

    Every single Marlboro Man died of lung cancer. I am close to 60 yrs old, and have friends who are developing cancer from years of smoking. I quit almost 30 years ago (cold turkey), and haven't had a puff of a cig since. But I did smoke for 21 years, and usually 1-2 packs/day. Smoking is NOT cool, or glamorous. Cigarettes do NOT taste good - at all. There is no safe smoking.

    Vaping is a giant experiment with the American public, right now. Nobody has any idea what the long-term effects will be on people.

    I now use a steroid inhaler, and albuterol inhaler (as needed) for asthma, which I never noticed when I was younger. The things you do in your youth often don't show signs of damage for a very long time - but they do damage you.

    We stopped smoking the day my son was born. That was thirty-one years ago. Do we miss it , hell yes but the days we spend together out weights ever cig I ever lit. It's nice to still be around and enjoying our grandkids too !

    My wife has more than a few stevia plants which we use after she has dried it and finely ground it. She uses it when baking in lieu of sugar and I use it in my tea, it's great stuff. Neither of us have ever smoked, it was just something she came across while browsing the internet.
