  •  Thanks for the kind & encouraging words. (6+ / 0-)

    You'll likely be disappointed that I still smoke, but only a fraction of what was.
    I only share my honest results for anyone else whom it may help encourage, and guess if asked the secret would reply that finding what is comfortable that works, plus a dash of resolution beyond New Year thing is simple recipe clue.

    •  I am hopelessly (5+ / 0-)

      addicted to cigarettes. I've tried everything you can name as an adjunct, from hypnosis to acupuncture to quitting-smoking-pills to nicotine tabs/pills to gum to patches to cold turkey(about 1000 times) & I'm sure I left some out. It makes me insane to not have cigs. Insane-er.

      Should I ever find $100k laying on the ground, I'd go live at 'Waves of Malibu' or some other in-patient addiction facility. Or prison might work, I guess.

      But smoking or not, one can still get out there & ride--ya just suffer more on the hills. I have a picture of me on my bicycle ride from Seattle to Maine smoking a cigarette & drinking a Rolling Rock while riding my bike in PA...

      The better I know people, the more I like my dog.

        the $ missed. in hopes of a meager reward  -  lol.  Money pissed away on tobacco my 40 of these 55 years on Earth just nothing less than shameful. I do everything possible to irritate self making the habit less pleasurable, but still get around the ridiculous cost.  Apparently I'm too damn frugal  for own good, still only costing me just pennies vs. 50 cents a pop in nearby Chicago. Bogus.
