How's that going. Stick? Feeling solid?
I'm glad I quit. As a smoker "quit smoking" is something that's always on the To Do list, always hanging over your head. It's one thing out of the way. I still enjoy smoking though, the feeling of of drawing smoke into my lungs, but not the amounts that nicotine forces on you.
Nicotine was used in high dosages to induce spiritual experiences in Native American shamans. It's a long way from sparking up a cig every half hour for the hell of it.
