Default Re: I can't take it anymore! Wife smokes, I don't. Tips are welcome!

Chaymus, I did heaps of them - it was how I expressed the way I felt. Here's another ... just slightly derivative :)

although I quit smoking - nicotine still has a grip on me as now I chew
Yes, I'm addicted to the gums and lozenges, which at least doesn't have most of the disadvantages of cigs (the only one being a risk of oral cancer with prolonged use). I once stopped smoking for two years, another time for one year. Trouble is, I wasn't disgusted when I had another cig .... I loved it!

It would be great to be able to hate cigs like other reformed smokers.
