I totally know that feeling. I've been having dreams about it the past couple of nights as well.

There are days when I would KILL for a pack of menthols, and I haven't touched the stuff in 15+ years (and even then I was a social/stress smoker, not a habitual smoker).

I haven't smoked for 6 years. I am glad not to. I know though that if I had one it would make me vomit, two and I would be addicted again!
I loved smoking!!

Stay strong, Joke, stay strong. I'm trying to learn to enjoy the cravings, still there more than 2000 days later....

Fortunately, I was slapped with a stack of errands and the mood slipped, biding its time, I'm sure.

I know e-ZACK-ly how you feel. And since my best friend is a filthy smoker, backsliding can and does happen.

I sympathize. It's been 14 years since I touched one, but the memory lingers. For me, getting even the faintest whiff of second-hand smoke kills all cravings.

I had one today, and I might have one tomorrow. I smoke Djarum Indonesian tobacco. Have considered quitting, especially since I should probably start thinking about having a kid in the next couple years...but these people with their 14 year cessations; well they amaze me quite frankly. I have absolutely NO will power.

My appalling lack of willpower is helped by capacity for distraction.
"What I'd love right now is a smoke, yeah that's the...ooh...shiny!"
Sorta like that.

I quit November, 1986, letting go of my beloved Balkan Sobranies.
I hate that I still miss the habit.
Once in a blue moon I'll have a cigar and pay for it with a nasty cough for days.

I is an insidious drug, nicotine. It is 20 years since I quit, & normally I am in horror to think about it, but just occasionally...I wonder...
I was a full on addict though, so know I could never risk so much as one puff.

I think the end of meal smoke was a favorite. I still jump up after end of every meal and start scrubbing something to take my mind off smoking.
And it doesn't matter whose home we're at; you will find me at the kitchen sink at the end of a meal.

Dude I only smoked when I was away at uni, after dark and when I was particularly drunk and even now there are days I hunger for a drag.

People actually manage to stop?
I am mystified.
