Subject: RE: No Smoking-2years on
Congratulations nutty. It's harder to stay quit than to do it in the first place IMO. Once the cravings wear off, the feeling of "just one" being dangerous goes, and we humans can justify about
anything. You wonder what smoking one would be like and it really only takes one to re-awaken the cravings.

Dear BPHammer - I think you got it - you can't say "I'll try." It's like going on a dry drunk and quit only for 'now'. You set yourself up to fail.

As to the asthma, I'm just speculating, but smoking suppresses the immune system, Asthma or any allergic response is due to a hyperactive immune system so it doesn't seem inconceivable that smoking was supressing the reaction. My throat gets sore more than it did when I smoked. It's not that the irritation's greater - it's because nerves aren't being constantly killed and I can feel it.

Has anyone had dreams that they were smoking and woke up in a panic because they weren't supposed to be smoking?
