It causes cancer of the lung and mouth, strokes, and heart and lung disease. It contains a drug so lethal that it is used as a pesticide, and so addictive that quitting is like quitting cocaine or heroin.

Yet you can legally buy tobacco almost everywhere. And more than a billion peoplebuyanduse it habitually. Most governments treat tobacco as just another consumer product, albeit the only one that kills when used as intended by the manufacturer.

I would try and quit, but for some reason I just dont want to. I guess when I am ready to quit I will

I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day

Nearly 4 months without a cigarette and didn't even find it that difficult quitting. Just woke up one morning decided I was quitiing and that was that. Don't have a problem with other people smoking so much but I really notice the smell of cigarettes now which I find really repungent.

Its good the thai government are taking action.

I hope they dont' go to overboard and politicaly correct.

But its fair that thai smokers are made aware of the risks

It was one of the hardest things I have ever done, but I cannot express how happy I am that I persevered.

You have to want to quit and also realise that it's 'not a walk in the park' and may require some application. Most of the physical discomfort is over within a week and the rest is imagining that you're missing something. There are any number of methods to help smokers - it makes sense to try a few until you find one that works. We have a scheme at work that helps people - even to the extent of prescribed medication.

 

I have yet to hear an ex-smoker complain that he's given up.

I smoked 40 a day, loved smoking, but I knew it was killing me and finally quit six years ago.

 

If I could do it, anyone can, best thing I've ever done, it's not easy for everyone but it can be done by anyone.

 

The book "The easy way to stop smoking" by Allen Carr (deceased) helped me, I would highly recommend it to smokers who are ready to quit - I read it and thought it was crap, then a year later I was ready, read it again and quit.

 

I'm really happy for others to smoke - thanks for paying huge amounts of tax guys, but I feel it my moral duty to let you know that after 3 months I didn't miss smoking at all, at least not 99% of the time. Sometimes I think it would be great to smoke a cigarette, but I also think it would be great to shag Angelina Jolie - but I know it's not going to happen, so I don't fret about it. The rest of the time it just doesn't cross my mind, so if you think you could never enjoy life without smoking, trust me, that's not true.

 

In the 6 years since I've quit, I've saved about £20,000. I'd rather have put that money on a bonfire than put it in my lungs.

Some people seem more immune than others. My father smoked 60 a day for over 50 years. It wasn't the cancer or a heart-attack that got him. It was falling off a ladder cleaning the windows after having a few drams to keep out the chill. I suppose, looking back now, it wasn't a bad way to go.

I'd rather look at tits, cunts and arseholes than listen to them!

Of course, for us Brits tobacco - along with the potato - was introduced from the American colonies (as they then were) by the late, great Sir Walter Raleigh. Those requiring a more detailed historical perspective of its immediate impact should seek our Bob Newhart's sketch on 'Nutty Walt'. However, while the potato came to inspire the chip culture that has fattened up many Brits and created a heart-disease industry in its wake, the tobacco leaf has wreaked even greater havoc and spawned cancer wards by the thousand. So, thank you America for all you have given us!

When a man is tired of Pattaya, he is tired of life.

Giving up smoking is easy. I've done it hundreds of times.

Where is our very own caped crusader in this thread. I refer of course to Butterflyman.

 

Seriouslty though, I have decided it is time to quit. I have noticed that while doing combination push-ups with the various ladies in PTY, I have on several occasions, had to blame the drink to spare my blushes when running out of breath due to my smoking habit. I'ts no problem when they are on top, but when I have to do the hard work and all they have to do is lie back and think of Thailand.my smoking habit soon catches me out.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
