I quit cold turkey back in december and have been toying back with them a little....it is outrageous and I better stop messing with them cause I don't want to go back to it....stress is starting to let them get the best of me......ugrrrr

quitting once and for all.  good luck and try the chantix...it has a 44 %  of working.  That's pretty good.  just monitor yourself.  You'll be fine....worth a try.

good luck!

I see your in Arizona.  I know they said they said they were taxing them again, but 70 buks is INSANE !!  I never paid more than 20 dollars a carton......I would smuggle them over the Mexico border.  Shhhhhhhh, and they were not the double rolled crapola one's we have in the U.S.......

I know you can probably buy them online but, I don't know how much cheaper they would be.......can i say that?.......

Again.  If you have the chantix......give it a try !!!

Good luck

I had cut down until my son died...and since then I'm practically chain smoking..little over a pack a day..not as much during the day..work takes it up...but after work I sit down with a cup of coffee and cigarette in the garage (we don't smoke in the house) and
wind up with 5 or 6 and during the night do the same..I'm at an angry stage which doesn't help...

Hey Jim...sorry for the loss of your son. Man, you have a good reason to smoke a pack a day. When I worked, I smoked maybe 10 a day...but now that I dont work...I smoke wwwaaayyy to much..I have severe acid reflux and smoking makes it worse...I just gotta set my mind to it...I need to quit...

Outoftown, they just changed the laws so that the Salmanaca Reservation is essentially shut down for shipping cig's. Heck, most of them are shut down for shipping any major name brand products like Phillip Morris.

Which is why I may just have to stop. The cost is becoming too prohibitive.

... unless... I rent a semi, drive down to the south, and LOAD UP!!! We could all do it. We'd be breaking down road blocks and evading the police... it could be just like that movie Convoy!!!

Down south the down Mexico way........for me.....you are only allowed 1 carton per. person......I of course bring much more, but not to worry because if I get caught they will either take them away or make me pay tax on them.  Depends on if customs is in a good mood or not..........

what the heck is an ELECTRIC CIGARETTE ???????  I used Nicorette inhalers many years ago, and was pretty successful at that time........only problem is it looked like a tampon in your mouth......lol.  I'm being totally serious.......that's why my ex wouldn't ue them.......lol

Heh heh... See? THAT'S why mary jane is illegal in the U.S. It's to protect the poor pot grower's from kids who steal poor, innocent defenseless plants from them!!! :-)

Ah well. I think instead of renting a truck I'll just work on cutting back and watch "Convoy" on netflicks again.
