I'm all in favor of the gory pictures. I smoked for about 50 years, ruined my lungs, shortened my life. Quit only 3 months ago. I won't live more than 2 years. So pour on the gore - even though it didn't stop me.

How did you quit?  Cold turkey or cut down?  Any advice or suggestions to get through the withdrawals?

I've been smoking for about 45 years.  I tried quitting at New Year's and then again during Spring Festival.  The smoking and the air pollution have taken a toll on my lungs.  My wife doesn't understand the intensity of withdrawals or the symptoms.  She isn't too tolerant if I get cranky... that just makes it worse.

I used Nicorettes nicotine inhaler. Google it. Worth the money. Capsules of nicotine gas - but no tar which is cause of cancer and emphysema. Very effective. I failed 3x before. This time very little urge to smoke for 3 months. Good luck. Your chances are better than you think with the inhaler!
