Which means he's quit nothing.

all but quit smoking

Is that like being "a little bit pregnant"?

So nothing has changed. He hasn’t quit.

“All but quit” means he has not quit.

This is one extravagance I would have no problem paying my taxes to support. I’d even send him a couple cartons of Camel straights.

As a former smoker who has ‘quit’ many times, I can personally tell you that you either quit smoking or you have not quit smoking. There is no in between. Sort of like being pregnant or not being pregnant - there is no middle ground.

He didn't even quit since yesterday. He "all but quit."

What buffoons these people are!

I believe nothing of Mister Gibbs' apparent premeditated lie.

I'm not sure why, however, this brings back the memory of Lloyd Bridges' character in Airplane

"It looks like I picked the wrong day to quite sniffing glue" (et al.)

“All but quit.” I’m an off again, on again smoker. One cig and I am back to addicted with sudden, very hard to control cravings. In a week, I’m back to a pack a day. This statement is laughable to anyone that has ever struggled to quit.

all but ?

Nah.

Either you smoke or you don't.

Either you have quit or you still smoke.

[I know from experience -- quit in 2003 and have not all butted since.]

Hate the idea of a Pres. detoxing on the job as well. You are tired AND irritable AND not right for weeks after you stop nicotine.

Didn’t I just reply to a thread about O smoking up a storm at the WH? I guess he is one of those guys who quits smoking in between cigarettes.

Quitting is easy. I did it several times. It didn’t finally take until I had been smoking for 19 years and “quitting” for 10.

I have a neighbor who says the same thing.

He no longer buys any cigarettes-—now he bums them from others at random.

But- he is still smoking. And lying about ‘quitting’.

My husband smoked for many years, since his teens. When he was in his early thirties, and our son was three months old (first child), he got really sick and didn’t smoke for three days.

He never took it up again.

Did he claim he’s no longer smoking . . . or just that he’s no longer smoking tobacco?

I quit cold turkey in March of 1986.
The company I worked for furnished a new Chevy Caprice for me to drive and I couldn’t bring myself to smoke in it.

You can’t “all but quit” smoking. Weak kneed, lillie livered, quivering mass of cowardice can’t quit and that’s fine with me.

Ditto. I don't drink any more.

Captain Zero is on medication for severe depression. Some antidepressants help to eliminate some of the craving for nicotine. If nothing else Fibbs is confirming the president is being medicated.

This pic of the bozo with five butts in his mouth says it all.

The bozo and his minions continue to peddle their bullshit lies.

I hope HE CONTINUES TO SMOKE..he DESERVES the benefits associated with this addiction, and the sooner he benefits, the sooner We The People benefit.

Hey, bozo, there’s space for two more butts up your nose.

Has anyone ever known a smoker in their entire lives who, “almost completely quit”? Not me. The question is, who is buying him his cigs, and where is he smoking them? Actually, I’ll hold on that question until we get some answers from him on his communist beliefs.

A friend of mine is an avid Redskins fan. One year they were in the Super Bowl and he had tickets. On the day of the game instead of being there he was in bed with bronchitis - his 30 a day had caught up with him.

He never smoked another cigarette after that and - according to him - never a day passes that he does not want one.
