I would like to start a separate thread for tips on quitting smoking. Some valuable tips are being given in a separate thread and while they are good for those who are following that particular thread, some who could benefit from these tips may not be reading because the issue isn't being overtly addressed. I hope that it will be of use to future members of browncafe as well One caveat: if you are not a smoker or ex smoker , thread lightly here. If you can offer a story of how a relative or friend quit, great. If you just want to post simple platitudes of how stupid the habit and user are and how smokers lack willpower, well go ahead but you won't be helping anyone. I hope someone smarter than I , can import the few postings relating to this issue from the "Help me lose weight" thread. If not , I'll figure it out later.
