Quite possible. I haven't bought a cigarette in almost a decade.

Malrboro red is 6,50€ here in Finland. Most of it tax. Other laws include warning texts and those horror pictures also stores have to keep cigarette packs in a cabinet out sight...

It's been some time since I posted here. Well, the short story: I quit smoking!

The longer: In the beginning months of 2015 I suddenly got problems with my lungs. Coughing all day, asthma. I stopped smoking for a few weeks, then started again...and it came back. Went to the doc and well, I am now allergic to nicotine. Wasn't really able to quit though, but because of my body reacting quite heavily to me still smoking I got pneumonia. After 6 months of reconvalescence I finally got better and I haven't smoked a single cigarette ever since. To be honest I tried once, but I almost puked so my body seems to have undergone his very own aversion therapy. Only problem now is to lose the additional 20kg I gained because I started eating more after quitting. xD

Unfortunately the downside to quitting is often weight gain and that is precisely what I experienced in 2008.

The upside being, if you eat relatively healthy and exercise just a little that extra weight should eventually go away.

Congratulations on quitting and your success at it. Good luck for the future. Don't worry about the extra weight, I'm sure you still feel much better.

Well Jim, I'm in the process of trying to quit. Went through a battery of tests when my Dr believed I might have cancer. But got lucky, very lucky and none was found. Still got to get off these cancer sticks, get through that then will battle with the weight thing. One problem at a time,lol

Congratulations for quiting. Not an easy task but well worth the end result.
