    I miss smoking so so bad. I used to smoke Newport shorts like it was a side job lol. I switched from Marlboro Red's, Lights and even Camel Crushes for a while. But my favorite has always been Newport's. I know Newport's get a lot of hate but I believe firmly they are an acquired taste :).

    I eventually quit, well I actually quit 3 times now. But I just love them so much.

    The nicotine rush, the bad ass look, the anticipation when going out for your next cig. I feel like once you develop a habit you'll always want to smoke even when the physical withdrawal ceases.

    I was thinking about clove cigarettes but they are just as bad, containing nicotine and all. I actually found a product from Japan that is like a cigarette, except you are inhaling vitamins and flavors instead of poison lol. Genius idea huh. But the site is completely in Japanese and it's like impossible to order in to the U.S.

    Electronic cigs are cool too, I used to smoke these in class when my teachers wouldn't let me use the restroom. Good times. If someone wants to say dip then just leave right now.

    I think hookahs are my best bet huh? Or maybe growing my own tobacco?

    I used to smoke newports too. then switched to kool milds.. I smoked for 20+ years. Longest I ever quit was 2 weeks. Finally quit , last week made 2 years. Only thing that worked for me was the E-cig. I vape a juice that is menthol flavor. Started off with the 16 mg liquid now I'm down to 8 mg.

    I miss smoking too, but I actually have really have learned to like the vaping. It doesn't stink up your house or clothes, you can do it anywhere, and I like that if i just want 1 drag, i can do that without committing to having to smoke a whole cigarette.

    vaping ecigs, not weed..

    Oh and you gotta buy decent ecig kits. I spent a lot of money buying cheap junk ones that tasted real "light" or they broke all the time. When I finally invested on good ecig kits, tanks, etc, it made a huge difference.

    You can go with e-cigarettes - You'll invest a little, but it will be for the good at the end.

    I used to smoke also(Lucky Strike), but left them 2 years ago, with the help of determination only. I still like to light one from time to time(with coffee, after a good meal etc.), but that happens rarely.
    If you have enough determination, you can quit anything that you think you're addicted from.

    I would recommend using an e-cig as a replacement to regular cigarettes. Then you can slowly ween yourself off the e-cig and eventually quit smoking/nicotine all together.

    Just switched to ecigs and so far so good. I still get the buzz, the initial smoke punch, and my fingers and breath no longer smell like burnt tobacco.

    Also most ecigs only have 3-5 actual ingredients and are MUCH more pure than analog cigs. I'm not saying they are safe, but they are most certainly safer.

    Champix - if it doesn't send you loopy.

    It finally worked for me after multiple attempts to quit over many many years.

    The E-Cigs are a safer alternative to cigs but still not FDA approved.

    I quit 14 days ago after smoking for 7 years, and I must say it is really hard. I also miss handling the sigarettes, the crisp sound of lighting up, the feeling of the first exhale of the fresh sig, etc...

    I am also thinking of using e-sigs but I am not sure it'll be the same, since what i read about it is you need to inhale a lot more/longer to get the same feeling of a real sigarette.
    However, I've been doing 14 days without any sig or e-sig and maybe its stupid to start using e-sigs at all and I should just try to ignore my longing.

    With e-cig you will never feel the taste of cigarettes,no matter of what juice you will put in your atomizer.

    Hey I can't even fathom quitting after that long, you have strong willpower. I smoked for like a year and a half the first time I quit and it sucked so bad.

    Maybe you could satisfy your smoke cravings with a hookah? You can buy flavors without nicotine so it wouldn't interfere with your withdrawal process, plus hookahs are so so relaxing and taste amazing.

    Maybe try to read http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/ and see what other people think about e-cigs
