The smoking outside thing is a great idea, but it's currently winter here, and our winters get down to -50. Would certainly be an incentive NOT to smoke though, that's for sure lol.

Interestingly enough, a while ago I quite smoking completely for about four months and while I do now smoke again (although not much these days) - I think the reason I was able to 'give up' at the stage was because of smoking outside. I had started doing this in the summer and by the time winter had come along I had cut down quite a lot and once having a smoke meant going out into the cold/rain it wasn't too difficult to just stop altogether. Mind - our winters aren't nearly so hardcore - it gets 'cold' - but not like you describe.

Summer is a difficult season to quit or cut-back, at least for me - far too much going out drinking.

Personally for the last 6 months or so I've managed to cut back to around 1-3 a day and quite often 0. I never smoke inside and I don't take smokes with me to work or if I go out any where during the day. As a result, I've stopped craving morning/daytime smokes. And now it's just in the evening. Normally one when I come home from work and then maybe another one or two later on at night once I've had a couple drinks etc.

For anyone looking to 'cut-down' my advise is smoking outside is the BEST place to start.. You'll almost instantly halve the amount you smoke.. This is easiest if you live with others and everyone agrees to the rule. If some people keep smoking inside then you're screwed and I imagine if you live on your own it would be very hard to stick to. Try other things to like not taking smokes with you when you're going out for 2-3 hours etc.

Anyone else smoke more when they play Poker. I smoke 3 times more, and would have a problem if I had to play live where I couldnt smoke.I guess I'll 1st have to stop smoking before I prepare for the WSOP.



Yes, I do. Very not nice when I didn't smoke. Easy lost consentration, not focus. And maybe better
I am not play if I cann't smoke because I will lose, never win Big Smile Big Smile
