I've managed to cut down from 40 a day to two packets of rolling baccy per week, over the course of a coupla years - not smoking in der hoose (as they say in Scottishland, I believe!) helps a shitload, especially over the winter.
I've only been smoking American Spirit or Pueblo organic stuff, too, which has the same amount of tar, but loads more nicotine, and no chemicals - consequently, I don't smoke as much, and my chest feels FAR better for it... I think Rich Balls' plan is sound, just cut down gradually, and move over to rolling tobacco (you don't get that 'only seven cigs in the packet, that's one every two hours' kinda quiet frenzy undertow)...
Jeez, to think that, when I first came to Memphis back in 97, I went mad on cheap cigs and smoked unfiltered Luckies by the carton!!!
The no-smoking ban is hitting the UK this summer, so we're deffo giving up when we get back, but when we hit Memphis, it's Nat Shermans and black pack American Spirits for two weeks! Yowza (cough)!
