No, you should get in charge of yourself.

No one is worthless.

I am known occasionally to smoke an OP - other people's - if offered when drinking socially. Perhaps two to three cigs a month.

So I too am still an addict of nicotine. and so will you be if you stop.

The day I 'stopped' I took a carton and a half of Gauloise, a 2/3rd carton of Camel Filters, about ten Soubranies, and two packs of RYOwn tobacco, and several different lots of pipe tobacco. And burnt them in our backyard incinerator. NB We are not allowed to have / use these, anymore.

Gave away the pipes as well - three of, including a hooked silver-ferrule Peterson, and a meerschaum. And, both cigarette rolling machines, and three waterproof cigarette box covers from my time in the H'army.

Why did I stop? I wanted / needed surgery for chronic sinusitis and a deviated septum. he wouldn't do it if I didn't stop for 2 months before and after. And, the penny dropped.

So, I know full well that it isn't easy, but if a driven, impulsive PITA like me can do it? Again, why can't - or won't? - you?


Take a break from here, get some appointments with a counselor, to learn how to take charge of yourself, and do it!

Have a go, mate.
