I don't think anyone is being overzealous, we're just ex-smokers who are sharing our personal experiences with those who asked for them. However, I fully suggest that you not quit smoking as you seem to be wound up pretty tight, those first few weeks would be a nightmare for you.sbrguy said:i personaly dont like the peorple that are way too overzealous about getting others to quit, you can spout off all the stats you want about quitting or dieing from cancer but its really up to the individual to do what they want.
so don't go overboard with the whole fire and brimstone why you should quit or how hard it is.. people will do what they want.
if you want to quit good for you, there are plenty of products out there and ways to quit, millions of people have used various methods to stop smoking. if you want to smoke you are allowed its your body.
afterall we ride motorcycles. and how many times do poeple say that these things are deathtraps but we still use them? and we tell them what we think of them.
a friend that worked in insurance told me years ago that accounding to inhouse stats basically insured motorcycle riders have a 100% probabilyt of getting into an accident over a lifetime. you read that right its not 98% its a 100% probabitilyt that the person will have an accident. so don't become one of "those overzealous" safety people telling others what is good for them with all the fire and brimstone stuff.
good luck all.
how is it these assclowns stay in business...GusDuc said:Although I've never smoked, my Ducati was but it seems to have stopped now.... damn Del Amo had it 2 months to replace the valve guides & left one of the oil seals not fullt seated during assembly They tried to tell me it was unburnt fuel but 600 mile & half a quart of oil later I knew otherwise.
A friend of mine started using Chantix after smoking forever and he didn't even want to smoke and thought it was a miracle drug. problem is, after a couple of months, he didn't want to do anything. Depression is apparently a possible side effect. He's never been depressed before. Stopped the drug; started smoking again. back to the drawing board.
