I mean, I have to concentrate on EVERYTHING really really hard, even driving. I don't know why this happens to me, but I am waiting for it to pass. However this is the easiest way to quit for me so far, the e-cig.
    Nicotine withdrawal (even if it's not complete withdrawal) can probably produce these symptoms. Nicotine helps concentration, and can be a stimulant, so withdrawal can have a negative impact on concentration, and make you tired.

    I'm not a fan of energy drinks. The taste doesn't seem all that great, and who really needs all that caffeine anyway. If I want caffeine, I'll just have coffee or Mountain Dew. I know, because Mountain Dew is so much better for you than energy drinks...

    Here's something that tics me off about my smoking. I am a really strong willed person. I have always been independent and take personal responsibility for everything in my life. I don't make excuses I accept consequences.... but then I need a cigarette. It's a bitter irony.
    I smoke about a pack a day of RYO too. I call them Homies lol. I use American Spirit tobacco, roll them in a roller with Top papers and a filter and I'm good to go. They taste as good as regular smokes, about a million times less expensive too.
    But as good as they are... I do think it's a good idea to think about stepping away from tobacco.
    I am I'm going to get the e cig stuff next payday. Once again mustangclaire, thank you & good luck!

    FYI: There's is great thread of advice and experience here on quitting smoking. I forget what its named. Anyone?


    I remember the thread, but I can't remember the name of it. It was over a year ago the last time I remember reading it or seeing it up, so it's probably archived. There were a lot of good discussions about how people quit in it. I did check back on some old posts but couldn't find it. If you remember what is let us know because now it's bugging me.

    Same here, Pats. All searches come up empty. I'll continue as time permits. Has to be there somewhere.

    I'm almost positive it was "Quitting Smoking."

    I think Jordan said somewhere that some of the inactive threads were pruned.

    I don't smoke and have decide to never start either. But in my work we started to sell
    E-cigs last year but the sale of those hasn't go so well. I think I've sold only one or two. Don't
    know how many my co worker has sell. But seems like people aren't interesting of those. They still want have
    the real one.

    Thank you so much.
    At first blush the idea of quitting smoking wigs me the frick out, but really, it needs to be thought about, seriously.
    That's one of the reasons being able to at least try e cigs is a huge step for me. I have tried patches before and they obviously didn't work out so well, the gum was a fail for me too.
    We shall see.... practice practice practice, that's how you get to Carnegie Hall.

    It pretty much goes without saying that quitting smoking will be the very best thing you ever do for yourself. If you decide to give it a go. I'd be happy to offer PM support but be prepared for hell.

    That said, my GF Caren, got her ear lasered and it killed her addiction immediately. She never had another craving again. It seemed like BS to me back when I heard about it. But she swears it worked.
