I’m sure your mother was a women never to be trifled with.
Lancaster leaf. I could never stand the snuff type of chew.
And yes, it's a nasty habit that I'd love to break.
I only do it when I'm in my office.
Anybody remember Tops Snuff? Many of the older women in our farm community would dip it on occasion. Cracks me up to think about it now.
Seriously. I love a good cigar. Not in a sex kind of way but almost. But I had to give them up forever because... Well because I liked them too much and the nicotine was addictive.
I’ve never witnessed a woman dip snuff, but I have seen elderly Filipino women spoke toscani’s by placing the lit end in their mouths. I never understood that exercise.
I actually smoked cigs for a short while, but quit because I enjoyed it too much.
I’ve quite smoking four times cold turkey. I can’t stand the thought of doing that one more time which keeps me from starting again. Each time was harder than the last.
You know you’re a redneck if you’ve heard of Cophenhagen, but not Denmark.
Quit I mean
Believe it or not, I quit cold turkey as well. It wasn’t difficult at all, but than again, I had only been smoking for a month. I’m sure that had I been smoking for a much longer period of time, it would have been quite challenging.
I have an uncle and aunt as well as a friend who had smoked for decades. All went cold turkey and didn’t have a problem with it. They just stopped. I wish it was that easy for every smoker who wishes to quit.
Do some web searches on "chewing tobacco cancer." If that doesn't motivate you, you're lost.
If anyone was addicted to tobacco, it had to be my father. For more than thirty years I never saw him without a cigarette in his hand. "I smoke because I want to," he would say. To which we'd reply, "Riggght!" At the age of about sixty or so he developed severe emphysema, along with a spot on his lung. The day he got the diagnosis he quit, and never smoked another cigarette in his life.
It's all down to what you value. For years he valued the pleasure of smoking more than he valued the distant and vaguely-defined prospect of disease and death. Once those prospects became very real and near, he decided that he valued life and physical well-being more than he valued smoking.
Some may say that after so many years, why bother? I say, that was brave and good of your father to quit. I’m sure it wasn’t easy.
I understand. A relative of mine smoked her entire life. I can’t recall a time when she did not smoke during her waking hours. Although I wasn’t there when she passed away, I’m told that she even smoked in the courtyard at the hospital shortly before death. For some, their addiction is consuming. Congratulations in conquering your habit.
Well sorry to hear about your relative who is now in God’s hands. I would do anything to be with some of my long lost relatives again.
Thank you. She was surrounded by loved ones when she passed away. I actually called once, and although my relative was unable to speak, I talked to her for a few moments. It was a blessing.
I know what you're saying. It is a strong addiction. Even after 25 years for me I sill crave a dip once in a while, even after the dentist told me I have pr-cancerous lesions in my mouth. It's sad to see these kids doing it t be cool. It's not something that you can just quit easily.
