@OGIONIK,
I've quit for up to a year at a time, but never have I coughed up black stuff. Go to your doctor!
What field of work are you in? You may be inhaling something from a different source. My mother recently died of cancer that started in her lungs and had smoked since she was 10 years old, we were told that it probably wasn't the cigarettes that killed her, but all of the charcoal and pastels that she worked with as an artist.

@OGIONIK,
And starting a $4 a pack habit makes sense how?

(you don't even get high for your $4, just jittery and addicted...)

@OGIONIK,
I've remarked on this at a2k before and don't want to sound like saint someone, but.. after twenty years of smoking something like 2 to 3 packs a day I just stopped. So, you're transitioning to ciggs. An improvement, perhaps, not sure. You do sure seem wildly enamored of drug moves.

In my own experience (I quit ciggs twice cold, second one took) the get over it part was not all that long. People describe it going on for years. Nobody smoked more than I did. There are other things to be interested in.

Given you are stopping weed by just doing cigs.. you're keeping up all the old mechanisms. The lighting... and so on. All the accoutrements, part of the comfort.

There are other ways to live besides lighting some dry leaves. Look around.

No, I'm not lecturing. Do what you want.

It's real hard on your liver as well.

@ossobuco,
One addition, to say, Oggi, that you have this seeming drive for self obliteration mixed with metaphors of exploration.

I get it.

I do highly suggest you cool out from why you think that is all so cool and smart, whatever the words are now. Step back. Don't sabotage work and school for this escape stuff.

Best advise: go see your doctor. Don't fool with your health. It took me three tries to quit smoking, so I know how hard it is. I quit about 50 years ago. A couple of years ago, I smoked a couple of cigars in Chicago, but was able to quit cold without any addiction or need to continue.

@OGIONIK,
Ok, so I still smoke them damn cigarettes and I enjoy them! I know that I am going to die someday, but when I hear that smoking will take 20 years off of my life do I laugh? I'd rather pass on in my 70's with gusto than live on to my 90's confined to a wheelchair.

Funny thing, everytime I fly back to the states I'm always bringing back the maximum of 5 cartons of cigarettes with me for all of my stateside friends. Cigarettes still only cost about $16 a carton in the USVI.

As far as the ganja goes, I've still never heard of coughing up black stuff. That is my own personal opinion. No more comment, I never inhaled.

@cicerone imposter,
C I, Much like myself, Onion is on the edge of extinction.

A doctor involves variables that inevitably try to sink our finances, hence we try to survive on common sense.

Yes, Onion?

Yah, yah. Consider clinics, while you can. Some of the rest of us do.
