Once you start, you can't stop. Is is indeed addicting and very disease like. It spreads from person to person, a link from one to the next. Well, in truth, you can stop, it is possible to quit. But I ask of you guys how many people smoke? Its a flat yes or no answer, don't give me that casual bullshit where maybe you have a couple cigs on the weekend when you drink. I will say yes to smoking. It's just extreme habit and I love smoking. And I do plan on quitting at some point, possibly cold turkey and move on. I'm still young, and you only live once so what does it matter what happens after you're dead? Another question.. I heard about a certain type of pill that helps you to quit smoking, and have been known to work. Side effect: terrible nightmares. Anyone know a little bit of information about this prescription drug? And would you give it a shot?
