Modern cars produce a negligible amount on carbon monoxide. Stephen Fry tried to kill himself by sitting in his garage with the engine running, he was just as confused on the issue as you.

I haven't had a cigarette in 14 days after smoking a pack a day for the last 15 years. It feels great, but I'm not out of the woods yet, just taking it one day at a time.

Congrats man. I've gone 6 months now after going through 20 a day for about the last 6 years. It's tough and the cravings don't go away believe me, but you feel so much better for it, you throat and lungs just feel really... clean.

Its weird and you can't really explain it TBH. Hopefully you'll make it that far and see for yourself. Best of luck.

Who the hell is bill hicks?

And ive been a non-smoker many times in my life.

But I've not taken a test/exam since high school without a smoke before, its like a ritual of sweet nicotine calm and focus before the storm which is me obliterating the exam with fierce intellectual prowess.

Neat cigarette smoking statistic: People who smoke cigarettes their whole life have a 33% chance of dying from it. (1 in 3)

I quit smoking about 4 months ago, and it is better for me. I feel better and don't have to find the time and place to go and smoke.

I still smoke marjuana, but i use herbal tobacco that has no nicotine so i don't get started on the cigs again.

I still support smokers and the idea of smoking, i am not one of those gay ex-smokers who become all righteous and negative about smokers.

Why?

Because it's personal choice i am already pissed that i am told i am not allowed to smoke something that grows in the ground.

It's my choice, i agree as long as it has no negative impact on others which is why i didn't moan when they banned smoking in bars.

Only problem is bars now smell like sweat and old beer instead of smoke.
