And if seeing his posts makes it irresistible to respond, then use the ignore function. It works quite well, and I sort of assumed that everybody had ignored him after he shit all over several earlier threads.
I'm quitting myself, actually. It might surprise the few of you who know me IRL, but I went from smoking a few clove cigarettes a few times a year, from college days up until about 10 years ago, to smoking Swisher Sweets, to occasionally having one of my brother's cigs when I was around him. Then he came to live with me, and when he went down to the basement for a smoke break, I'd join him. It wasn't more than half a pack a day, and usually a lot less.
And I really did enjoy it. I read through a few stop-smoking books, and one of them that is really popular was all about convincing me that I really didn't like smoking. But I did like it. The only part I don't like is that I have no wind anymore, and my blood pressure is quite high.
So after spending a wonderful month in California at my sister's house, going on the back porch and smoking when she did, I'm treating the return to Brazil as "time to quit that shit". I really do enjoy running, and I can't enjoy it if I have no wind. I'd also like to do some snorkeling and spearfishing, and right now I would have no chance. 15 years ago I could easily free dive to 30 feet and hang out at that depth for a minute or so.
I bought two boxes of patches, but as I suspected, the damn things don't work down here. I'm sweating so much, the patches just don't stick. That was a waste of $50 or so...
