I've smoked for years and I'm very well aware its bad for you but it's a nightmare to quit. I'm not a chainsmoker but I can probably have about 10 a day max if I'm out with friends or if I'm stressed.
I went on a date with a guy the other day, and it was going really well until I mentioned I smoked. He didn't seem to keen on it, and I haven't heard from him since. I guess I blew it, but at least I didn't lie. At the end of the day, I want to give up, but nothing has worked for me; I've tried e-cigs, hypnotherapy, counselling, patches you name it but nothing works.

cold turkey only thing that works... and suffering... it is a drug... then never touch it again or you'll start up.
I would not sorry, my parents smoked in the house, its nasty and disgusting, their breath smells, didn't even like hugging my mom... gotta hold my breath.
Would you date a guy that smells terrible and when under stress has to run outside and hug a tree? I doubt it... its just screwed up. Its sad though, the companies prey on people and once you start it is hard to stop I hear.
You can do it, throw that stuff out, not becaue of guys, but because you don't need it. The bigger thing I'd bet is to figure out how you started... what were the emotions (stress, fear, shame, etc...) and counsel those emotions so that they lose their power over you. Then the bond is broken and you wan't need the drug. The other thought is to make it evil in your mind somehow... like when you think of smoking, think of something horrible... and how sick it makes people.
That's my theroy, not fact...

I've been a smoker myself and I still do it at parties, but after being in a relationship with a smoker (after I quit) I can say I won't do it again. It's fine when you're outside but inside you can really smell how much their breath reeks, and you'll have to shower after every time you visit them because you smell like a bar. Also, coughing every 3 minutes is not sexy.0
