Chris, it was really easy for me to quit. Did it cold turkey, last smoke was in the ER parking lot just before they rolled me in to the cath lab, 4 years since the heart bypass and I only get the urge daily. Vicious habit. Good luck.
Thanks Craig good advice,
                                          Unfortunately I'm a bad case and fairly fatalistic about it. 15 Years ago I was in the IR with two blood clots  in my chest and my wife told I had a 50/50 chance of surviving. Few days later, still in the ICU, I set of all the alarms by unplugging myself from all the monitors, running down the corrdior with my ass bare in that stupid hospital gown they give you and out through an emergency exit. Managed to get a smoke in before they found me and took me back to the ICU and plugged me back in. I'm a lost cause!

                     Water skiing over for the year ?. Is that your place in the pic?See  you soon at the FOG table at High Campbell.

Scotty,
It's good that you are getting this addiction out in the open.
You can do what ever blows your hair back with your health.
Speaking from my personal addiction of skiing, over time it gets more difficult to find willing suckers to go touring with me.
Even though a biopsy of your lung could fuel a coal furnace for a week, my addictive mind says I would hate to have to look for another ski partner who can tolerate my demented sense of humor.
Also, I am going to write my legislators and have smoking banned from the outdoors, (sorry my Rasta ski brethren). The second hand smoke that Scotty produces after a huge trail bust is killing my lungs. Nothing like a big 2nd hand cig hit in the great outdoors, after trying to catch my breath from breaking a vertical skin track.
I guess one benefit for me is, while your black licorice lungs are still trying to recover at the summit,  Chugach and I will be tearing up all that great powder, while you try to find the last morsel of tissue that will absorb oxygen.  Cheesy

I got news for you buddy, Chugach has started smoking as well. Caught him with a pack of camel lights with the neighborhood dogs. Since Pierce county has just banned smoking in all their public spaces and parks, I'm running out of legal places to smoke and the NPS can't be far behind. Damn you all!!

I have to smoke to protect my lungs from your farting on the skin track! Wink

If I give up, will you promise to let me have first tracks for a full season?HuhHuh

Let's analyze this one at a time.
If my BC flatulence is a lingering death trap, it must have wicked hangtime to be able to reach your coal miner lungs 100 yards or more behind me breaking trail!

And I would gladly let you have first tracks if you quit smoking, and if keeps you from skiing in my down tracks. Plus it gives me a sucker to test avy conditions.
Sounds like a win/win.

As hypocritical as it sounds, I am going to start carrying smokes with me. If I can get $100 a smoke then I can get a new quiver in no time if I ski with you and Rob.

Joe, it sounds like you should read some Ayn Rand or watch some Gordon Gecko: capitalist greed is a good cause!

Maybe Gary Vogt is reading this thread and smiling. in the old days we would try like hell and catch him and we always did when he stopped for a fag. Next time Chris I'll tell you the story of the JApanese Malboro man guide on Fuji.
