Nicotine gums really help and their use seems to be underemphasised whenever the issue of quiting surfaces. Once you are hooked you tend to refuse to quit because you will learn to really enjoy smoking (what those who never smoked have no clue about), and the nicotine is the one that does the trick. Quit the smoke and keep the trickster, for a while. And quiting gums is obsenely simple.

I am a medical student and a former smoker. I smoked 6 cigs everyday for 2 years. I recently quit after being home for a few months while studying for the step. Major reason, I didnt want my parents finding out, so I quit.

الا اننا نجد ان معظم المداخنين من المتعلمين
وخصوصا الاطباء انفسهم والمهندسين

انا بعتقد انو سبب رئيسي من وراء التدخين عند المثقفين هيا الضغوطات اليومية
طبعا هادا مش مبرر
وفي النهاية التدخين ظاهرة سيئه لازم نتخلص منها
