Kudos on the anger rant, MD! I know soooooooo many people who let their anger rule their lives, and most people around them are thinking about jumping ship...

If you ran for president, I'd vote for you on the "less anger/chill out" platform alone. I think you'd get a lot of votes.

Consider running in 2008, after you quit smoking, of course. Because smokers don't win presidential elections --- only FORMER smokers do.


I like your serious note. But on my serious note, I'm so proud of you for quitting! I hope that when you come back here next week, you report that it's still going well, even if you are a bit twitchy and overdoing it on Krispy Kremes and junior mints.

Meanwhile, at least Ellen Barkin thought you looked like someone hot. I've been told I look like Celine Dion, and I can't exactly blame it on race confusion.


My father said he quit smoking once, and it was the worst three hours he ever spent.


Hope you had a great Thanksgiving, MD. I like your sentiments about all the hate and anger in the world. Good bit to remember during this holiday season. Thanks.

I love Yul on survivor and I'm nearly menopausal (okay, not soooo nearly at 43). Oh my God, MetroDad, I'm your demographic.


Best of luck in quitting smoking, again:-)) I'm with you on the anger. Especially in the US. It's obvious that people are angry and pissed off at something all the time. The "sky is falling" paranoia message from the government doesn't help either. There is a terrorist threat everywhere from the smallest village in Wisconsin to the most insignificant shit-hole in Florida. We will apparently all die any day now since Al Queda has the world cornered.

Hope u had a nice thanksgiving



Great to hear that you're quitting smoking, MD. The Peanut will thank you for it someday! Good luck.



When I stop laughing, I plan to leave a coherent remark.

First time (but definitely not last) here...


First of all, I quit smoking every night and if I could only not smoke the first one of the day, I'd have this habit licked! Next, Everytime I come by to spend a little time - your stories completely suck me in - thanks!!


Like many others I smkoed when I was young but managed to kick the habit before I was totally hooked, I was lucky and suffered no damage to my health. But for a close friend it was different, even though she was only a moderate smoker, her health was being seriously affected and getting worse with time. Now this is where I really sympathize with smokers. She like many smokers knew the dangers and had genuinely tried many different ways to quit smoking. She tried patches, hypnosis and read several books on the subject of quitting, nothing had worked. She always ended back at square one, knowing she needed to quit, but how, nothing had a lasting effect. That was until she tried Smoke Deter.So why am I telling this, because I played a small part in her success. You see I heard about Smoke Deter through my son, his best mate had quit smoking using Smoke Deter and I convinced my friend to try it. She was very skeptical, but I was so concerned about her health that I said that if it didn't work I would pay for it, so she had nothing to lose and that convinced her. That was a year and five months ago, it worked and she is no longer a smoker, she has never has the urge to smoke since she quit using Smoke Deter, that's a fact and it's the only product she tried that she's happy to tell others about.Smoke Deter is an herbal based liquid oral spray that is used 3 times a day, this is also supplemented with herbal pills which when combined is very effective at reducing your nicotine cravings. How quickly it works depends on the extent of your habit, it can work as quickly as 2 weeks or may take 3 months, regardless of the time, your health is worth the effort to kick your smoking habit.It's worth noting that Smoke Deter is safe, natural and has no known side effect and no known drug interactions. It's highly rated on many stop-smoking product review sites, often with genuine testimonials from people that have also kicked the smoking habit using it. So I am not the only one that knows Smoke Deter gets the desired result.Smoke Deter also offers a lifetime free membership support program, so you are never on your own, help is available 24 hours a day if you feel the need, like if your resolve is weakening. There is also a free Stop Smoking Relaxation Audio MP3 available, it might not be for everybody but my friend said it was definitely a help to her, it changed the way she thought about smoking. That's what I like about Smoke Deter it changes your whole attitude to smoking, it works on your mind as well as your body. Unfortunately I've seen the damage smoking has done within my own family and also in my circle of friends, consequently I'm fully aware just how hard it is to stop smoking without some kind of help. I've seen first hand how Smoke Deter helped my friend quit smoking and so it's not surprising she can't say enough about it. So if this article brings Smoke Deter to your attention and as a result helps you kick the smoking habit, then for me writing about it has been worthwhile.So if you've been wondering if these quit smoking products work, well I guess some do and some don't, but one that has my recommendation is Smoke Deter, I've personally seen it work when other methods failed. I'm happy to pass that information on so that others looking for a safe natural way to quit can try Smoke Deter if they wish.If you would like more helpful information on Smoke Deter or other free quit smoking information, you may like to visit the source link below It seems to confirm some of my comments and is dedicated to helping smokers improve their health, fitness and beat the smoking habit.


well I'm in the same boat as you. I am trying to lose about 40 pundos, and I thought I would quit smoking too, you know get healthy all at once. My experience has been this, but yours might be different: When I quit smoking I started PACKING on the pundos. It's not that I ate more, I was still trying to eat healthy, exercise, etc. but for some reason I just started gaining weight when I quit. I went back to smoking, and I found that a cigarette takes the edge off my hunger, when I'm hungry, I light up. I know it's not good, but I guess I will try to quit again when I'm skinny. Smoking is bad for you, but so is excess weight. It all depends on what is more important to you right now, and for me, losing weight is the most important goal in my life at this moment. So I smoke. And smoking hasn't hurt my endurance any either. (it probably doesn't HELP, but I don't notice that I'm out of breath a lot)
