My daughter's premiums doubled for her family of 4 coverage through work. The AFA is all about screwing the middle class working people and the young so that the unemployed/dependent society folks can get covered through the exchanges. The lawmakers decided they were smarter than actuarial scientists. Shit's gonna really hit the fan in the next few months.

That translates, roughly, into a 50% increase in the per-pack cost.  For that, and several other reasons. it might be time to quit, huh?

As a former smoker (quit 11 years ago) I understand very well how difficult it was to stop. That said, with the increased cost of cigarettes and proven negative effects on one's health, I cannot - for the life of me - understand why so many refuse to give it up. sucks  Whatever it takes... QUIT NOW John! hey_mon

That's the same thing that drove my desire to quit. I made it a challenge. I would not allow the smokes to beat me.

My partner here at the office used hypnosis... worked for him. I just went cold turkey... basically said FUCK-YOU to the cigs.

February 17, 2009 -- threw out what remained of the pack and haven't had one since. I had quit several times over the 20 years prior to that with the longest being when I turned 50 and up until I was 56. At that point, as a crutch and not really giving two squats about my physical condition after Nancy died, I started up again. Finally, with the help of Chantix, some real soul-searching, and (like you, Kurt) a determination to NOT be slave to the damned things anymore I was able to quit.

I failed to mention the 3 root canals I had which were directly caused by my trying to quit.

I substituted the red/white pinwheel mints for cigs. (You also need to know I am physically unable to suck on a piece of candy until its gone... I have to chew the thing up.) I broke 3 teeth (all old-school filled cavities). Would have happened sooner or later, but I choose to blame the cigarettes for that, too!
