best of luck, dischord. i, too, tried quitting earlier this year, smoking my last cigarette on NYE and going cold turkey after that. i was never a pack-a-day type but it was starting to get out of hand. for those first couple of weeks i just kept reminding myself of how much better i smelled.
anyway, i started again when some serious business went down in my life, but now i only smoke maybe a dozen per week. that's not gonna kill me that fast, is it? admittedly it means i smell like crap a dozen times per week.
