I'm from Toronto Ontario Canada. Coming up to my 6th year smoke free and kicking my own butt at the gym now. 

"Quitting isn't for Sissies!" I quit poisoning myself Sept. 27, 2013

Wow that's so cheap. California is at $9.75-$10.35 for name brand and maybe you can find some off brands for like $8.00. That's exactly part of the reason why I quit and it will only get higher from here. That's why I remind myself the next cigarette I smoke is worth $10,000, because that's how much I would end up spending if I fail now! Might help someone to see it that way!

I'm near Denver, CO, US

I am from Northeastern Ohio.  I also read Alan Carr's book and agree with what everyone said on here.  He had some good points.  I read it about a month after I already quit.  I also used Chantix for the first 4 months.  I also read EVERY article someone posted and watched every video I could.  I wanted to keep myself ANGRY at the tobacco companies and marketing and at myself for wasting money and hurting my body for 40 years.  Did that on a regular basis to keep myself motivated to stay quit.  My husband still smokes and now I rarely even thing about it.  His smoking just basically annoys me.  And most importantly, I stayed close to this forum and my Feb/March 2018 quit buddies (who are all still here).  Actually there's 3 of us that quit the same day and are still here.  Those of you still going through the hard times, just keep taking it day by day.  You can do this!

I spent some time in and around Farmington, NM when I was a student in Denver back in the late 1980's.  I no doubt bought a pack or two of cigarettes there.  Sure wish I would have just been a visiting nonsmoker!
