I was fourteen when my mother died of lung cancer. She was 48. It was an ugly death. I type this as I sit here smoking. I'm a moron.

I'm glad we're in agreement. Now about that quitting?

I quit cold turkey in 1993, after smoking for 32 years. One of the most difficult things I've ever done. I had cravings for at least six more months.
But if I hadn't quit, I'd have probably died years ago. I thought that after the first ten smoke free years, time would have undone any damage. Wrong.
My doctor says that starting at 13 and smoking until 45 left me with permanent lung damage....and I also smoked a LOT of weed and hash in my twenties.
I'm going for my third throat-scoping in five years, next week. Been choking on food and have had trouble swallowing. I hope I don't get any surprises.

The guy on the property next to me quit smoking forty years ago. He was diagnosed with throat cancer five years ago and has been breathing through a trach tube ever since...

 I don't see what that has to do with you? People get diagnosed with cancer having never smoked. There's also lots of other reasons to stop as well. For example: Food will taste better, your hair and skin will be healthier, you will be able to smell things better, and you won't smell like garbage to anyone who gets within 5 feet of you. That last one is something smokers never believe. They think they smell fine and people are overreacting because they've killed their sense of smell but they smell  absolutely disgusting. I can't even stand in line at the grocery store next to a smoker because it's so gross.

Ignore her Nytram. I am sure that Ghostal is a lovely girl but kids hate to see their parents enjoying themselves.

To start with you won't  feel any better. Look at Charlie. He gave smoking before the redskins invented the idea and he is still a miserable git. And forget about having a better sense of smell. The first thing you notice when you give up smoking is how many folk in the checkout queue use deodorants rather than bothering to shower. And you can coat your taste buds in tar, but food tastes good when you have done a day's work and can enjoy it.

How much do you smoke anyway? I have been getting estimates of 70 fags a day to your ciggie bill being less than 70 cents a month.

 Ignore him nytram. I am sure rumbletum is a fine person but he's British and for some reason they thrive on being contrary and they all think they're hilarious comedians.

I don't smoke cigarettes, I smoke a pipe. A months pipe tobacco (1 lb) works out to about $7.00.

I started smoking late, in my early twenties, and quit when I turned 30. Well, 31 if you count the months I tapered off. For a few years I would have a cigarette once in a great, great while until finally they made me sick. I was probably 37 when I tried to smoke my last cigarette, which I threw on the ground after a single puff. Ugh!

ghostal is right about the odor. It is bad. Standing next to a smoker, especially one who doesn't frequently launder ALL of their clothing (hats and leather jackets are the worst) or doesn't wash their hair every day. A smoker's car? No thanks, I'll take an Uber if I have to.

Old saying: Kiss a smoker is like licking an ashtray. I smoked for 32 years, and met a lot of women during those years. None of them ever complained, and most of them were probably non-smokers.

Food does taste better because smoking dulls your taste buds. The first dozen years or so after I quit, smoking was still legal in Ohio bars, and it used to make me go nuts because I wanted a cigarette. Gradually, that craving went away, and the smell and the stuffiness in bars began to bother me. We would go out to drink and hear live bands and we'd come home and the next day our discarded clothing would not only still reek of smoke, but the whole bedroom stunk.

After a few more years of being disgusted, we began taking off all our clothes on the screen porch and leaving them out there overnight. The tobacco smell was in our hair, too. Finally I used to have to go outside for air between band performances. Smoking was outlawed in bars shortly thereafter, around 2006. There were biker bars that ignored the laws...some were owned by cops and they got away with being  "smokeasies" for a while. I would go there to drink and have a "little cigar"...those things are more horrible and even more addictive than cigarettes. Now there are smoking patios everywhere, but they have a lot fewer users than a decade ago. What you see now are all the idiots who vape. That's even more idiotic than smoking. Vaping weed is like smoking a whole pack at once. Are people still dying from that shit?

Brits smoke like chimneys because people in Europe and the other continents continue to puff like fiends. Big Tobacco has turned to Asia to market their cancer sticks over the last few decades. The Filipinos and Chinese are among the puffingest people on the planet. Believe it or not, I still miss it once in a while, even after 27 butt-free years.

I should bloody well hope so. What is is the point of being a biker if you can't have a fag?

And a nice case of mouth cancer. At least you can't see lung cancer.

 Something you might like to try is take a small pinch of pipe tobacco, put it in the side of you mouth and leave it there. You don't have to chew it or spit it out and you get the same, if not more, satisfaction than from smoking. And it is cheaper and does not smell. Best of all, you can sit in a non smoking area with a plug of tobacco in your mouth and chew on your pipe until some sad sod bustles up and asks, do you know that this is a non smoking area? And of course you will smile and say why no, but if you sing I will hum. Naturally they never laugh because non smokers tend to be dreary bastards but it might give you a quiet chuckle.
