Dragonlady, I am so sorry you were so sick. But you don't know how refreshing it is to have someone admit what you did about smoking. I am so tired of this conversation being brought up and I'm made to feel like the devil incarnate because I smoke. As if I'm defective and have no self control. "It's all a matter of mind over matter." No, it's NOT. I'm like you, I love smoking. I like having a smoke break. But if we admit all that, then the non-smoking "Police" have to jump in and tell us how bad it is (like we don't already know), how bad it smells, we're walking ashtrays, blah, blah blah. Well, it's an addiction for me and one I have tried and tried to quit over and over. I want to quit, but I have horrible withdrawal problems, even using the patch, gum, etc. I am thinking of going to the electronic cigarette as several people I know have them and some have quit smoking using them. Can you PM me with the info of where online you get them?
