Yep, that's up there. I got pretty drunk like 2 days ago and I still managed, but I can see how it could be harder if I was at a bar or club or something and there were people smoking around me. I probably wouldn't try unless I had some weed and maybe some nic gum to help with that.

Are you using nicotine gum/lozenges and/or patches during this time? Nicotine had been the hardest drug for me to quit. The only real time that I’ve had from nicotine has been when I’ve been in jail. I’ve been clean from heroin/opioids for about 8 years and crack/cocaine for about 10 years but I can’t even go a few minutes w/o nicotine (whatever form) for more than a few moments after I wake up and then I need nicotine no less than 1/2 an hour without a smoke, dip, vape, lozenge, or chaw. I hate nicotine patches because they are impossible to keep lit.

good luck BK! I’m jealous, I can’t quit smoking/dipping for the life of me. I can make it about a month max w/o nicotine then I’m biting my stained nails and eating my stained beard for the nicotine. Keep it up. You’re my hero now.

Yeah, nicotine is a toughie, but I was never a crazy heavy smoker. Like 10/day, but for the past 16 years. I was on the patch for the first 5 days (14mg nic/24hrs transdermal) and I have nic gum for spikes in cravings. The past two days I have just been using the gum when I have a craving spike. I just felt it was time to give it up. I've also been off heroin for 8 years too and meth for 5, so gj on that brother.

I'm not nicotine free, just cig free, but my nic levels are down too. I don't even care if I get hooked on the gum, it's the smoking that is fucking up my health mostly.

I’ve been using a juul for about a year and a half, with the 5% menthol pods. I def prefer the mint flavor, but unfortunately it’s no longer sold in the US :(

This encourages me. My best friend and my brother quit using gum and patches. It took them a few years but they slowly discontinued nicotine all together. I tried Wellbutrin and it fucked with Tourette’s so bad (almost immediately) that it took months to get that drug out of my system (only took it a few days). I am too afraid to try Chantix because it rewires your brain like Wellbutrin, from my understanding.

There are quite a few peer reviewed medical studies that nicotine helps with Tourette syndrome tics. I have this knowledge in the back of my mind and it does work to calm my ticy nerves, so I always give in to that relief. The problem is I use nicotine stoopid, because I’m an addict and can’t use it prophylactically. And patches fucking suck (as I mentioned earlier), so no sticking on a patch and stepping down slowly (I’m not that patient with my crazier than crack addiction).

You got my prayers/spells! ♥️ What you are doing is admirable and something I have to try to do again. Thanks for showing you courage!

I smoke 3-4 Camel Crush menthols a day. Hopefully I'll get that back down to zero at some point. I've completely quit twice now, over a year in each instance, only to find myself severely stressed out, saying "fuck this", and walking to the 7/11 down the street to get a pack.

Mainly a spliff smoker. Used to buy Pueblo rolling tobacco, about one 30g pack every month or so. But I've transitioned to cigs the past couple of months, mainly Dunhill International (best quality tobacco IME) or stuff like Philip Morris Filter Kings (or whatever they're called), I buy a pack every 2 weeks or so.
I still use them to roll spliffs most of the time, but sometimes I smoke them like you're supposed to.

Not a big fan of tobacco to be honest, kind of wish I had never started mixing it with my weed.

I always liked menthol cigs though, used to smoke Marlboro ice blast years ago when I was tripping on acid. Unfortunately all menthols, and every other flavor, have been banned by the European Union...

Last time I did psilocybin mushrooms I completely stopped smoking for ~6 months, with 0 cravings. Don't remember the exact reason why I started again but I may need another trip.

I quit in 2009, but my favorite for a lot of years were plain old Marlboro lights. Boring AF, but tasty to me for some reason.

Used to smoke Gitanes and Barclay. Then they went extinct and I started smoking Dunhill and Davidoff but they weren't as good.

Now I don't smoke much, only vape 12mg freebase; don't like salt nic. idk why it makes me nauseous.

One of the best vape liquids I've tried was Phillip Rocke Honey Cream. There were some other good contenders but my memory fails me.

Only used Skoal for a year or so ~2004ish when I was living in Virginia.

No way! I love Nat Shermans although I quit. I loved Black and Gold or Fantasia.

Funny, yeah hardly anyone I know smokes or knows Nat Shermans. I heard the tobacconist in NYC they come from is closing though actually, which is kind of sad as it’s a historical place. I’ve also quit too, but only on day 12 :)

That is sad. Shermans are classic.
Stay strong— I know it’s hard to quit.

Please tell me where I can buy snus in the USA? I was advised to quit smoking with snus. Now I am looking for a place to buy. Thank you

They should have it in a general convenience store. I believe Camel makes a type of snus.

Oh yeah, I used to smoke a pack of marlboro menthols everyday. Now I'm vaping some Sadboy cookie custard flavor on the regular.

Camel Turkish Royals. They have the best balance between flavor and smoothness while still being just rich enough. No other cigarette gets all three balanced like that.
A close second would be Marlboro Reds.

@Alex Davis Try northerner.com. They have everything. Camel snus isn't a traditional snus so I don't think I'd try it unless somebody handed it to me for free, you know because it has tobacco in it
