Just the competition every chance I get :lol: . Because of peer pressure I tried cigarettes as a teenager and couldn't see the point so I never took up the nasty habit.

Ex smoker. I quit 5 years ago and gained 30 damn pounds. Now I'm gunna die of a heart attack for being so damn fat.

No really, I lost 20 pounds this year and feeling pretty good. Won't go back to smoking but I sure did enjoy it. I don't dip. I tried it once when I was playing ball and it burned my mouth.

I did the same thing 3.5 yrs. ago ... only I gaied 60 lbs over 3 yrs and have since lost 50 lbs.

After 32 yrs of smoking. One of the best desicions I ever made ... and stuck to. Never got into the dip .. plenty of people at work carry around a spit bottle though .... friggen gross if you ask me.

Keep the quit going !

I forced myself to not start smoking cigarettes but I do enjoy the occasional cigar 8) I see too many people smoking cigarettes like crack addicts and I figure no sence smoking unless you can actually sit down and enjoy it.

Default Bad Habits!!!

Sometimes hard to take a stand on this one. I smoked cigarettes from about the age of 13 until I was in my mid-30's. Was a solid 2-3 packs a day man. Quit in 1988. Have back slid a time or two, the last being in 05-06, new job, lots of stress and a majority of my co-workers were smokers, a rarity today. Quit when I left that job in May of 06. My current employer has a serious non-smoking culture, as of April, no one is allowed to smoke in the facility or even on the grounds.

They banned the chewing too. I agree with Lively. That is one nasty habit. There is nothing like watching someone put a huge wad of that sh-- in your mouth, then turn around and take a big drink of something and then proceed to spit up into a trash can!! Sorry, don't miss that one bit.

On the other hand, I will admit to enjoying both a good cigar or my pipe. So, I'm not entirely free of the habit. I have to avoid cigarettes, truly, I did enjoy a smoke.
