No smoking in Restaurants...

yes, you are correct. That's why smoking bans say you have to be 10ft away from any door of the establishment, which is totally fine if you are a smoker. Just deal with it. Here in Oregon, the smoking ban took place 2 or 3 years ago, and everyone was in a tizzy for about...2 days. Yea, that's right, just 2 days. People got over it. They simply just went outside to smoke. The smokey, dark dive bar they once inhabited now smelled plesantly good, and non-smokers would frequent more. People thought it would slow down businesses, like bars and restaurants, but in fact, it grew in numbers because now the non-smokers felt they had some place to go without inhaling other people's smoke. It's a win-win for everybody. http://www.iQuit-S  (Oct 22, 2011 | post #1708)


No smoking in Restaurants...

Yes, smoking should never be allowed in any restaurant in any state. It's not that hard to go outside and smoke. There are bans in plenty of states, and people have dealt with it. They simply go outside to smoke. The majority of smokers don't smoke while they eat anyways. Is it that bothersome to go outside? Can't you wait 10 minutes? If you can't wait 10 minutes to smoke, then you've got a serious problem. It's also rude and inappropriate to non-smokers around you. Plus there are children present. Are you being a role-model? Do the right thing and go outside like everyone else. You can last 10 minutes. http://www.iQuit-S  (Oct 21, 2011 | post #1697)


Electronic cigarettes are unsafe and pose health risks, U...

it's not even so much that they are "unsafe" because all cigarettes, no matter what form, are unsafe. The real issue with electronic cigarettes, in my opinion, is that you are still a slave to nicotine. Yea, one may argue that you eliminate the toxic chemicals from regular cigarettes, but you are still feeding your body the real drug it requires, and that's nicotine. Why go through such hassle just to get it? I think all the recharging and kits you have to buy is going to eventually lead you back to buying regular cigarettes. And then you're back to square one. If people are using electronic cigarettes to quit smoking, they are totally wrong. It's still the act of smoking, and you're still feeding your body nicotine. So, that's a dead-end right there. If people are simply switching over to reduce the health issues, take a step back and look at yourself. Why is nicotine so important to you that you need to buy all this stuff? E-cigs are not FDA-approved, either, so right there is a red flag. They are just not the answer to anyone wishing or wanting to quit, or wanting to switch to a safer brand. The flavors in electronic cigarettes are all toxic. Why haven't they been approved yet? Not a good choice. http://www.iQuit-S  (Oct 21, 2011 | post #14)


how to give up smoking?

Cold turkey is the best way to quit smoking. All those other methods are useless, in my opinion. You can't rid your body of nicotine forever by putting the drug inside your body in the first place. That's what those methods do. How are you supposed to quit smoking by slapping on a patch that feeds your body nicotine? You'll still be a slave to the drug. Cold turkey is the fastest method. Nicotine withdrawal, no matter who you are or how long you've smoked, lasts 3 weeks. After 3 weeks, nicotine will be gone from your body. Yea, it's difficult, but it's really only a few days of pain before you start feeling really, really good. If you can make it through one day without smoking, you can last your entire life. Where there is a will, there is a way! You have to be in the correct mindset to begin with, or else you'll fail. It's half the battle! The only way to quit is to take a final drag, put the cigarette out for the last time, go cold turkey, and never look back. It's the fastest road to recovery. http://www.iQuit-S  (Oct 21, 2011 | post #3)
