that is what I heard...maybe not, but maybe they make a milder one that is shorter????  Where is the cig experties....?

I don't think the shorter ones are in anyway stronger, as i noted earlier, you just tend to smoke more of the shorter ones.

me, stronger! i cry at dead spiders..........well, no i don't but im not strong when it comes to cutting the cigs down/out. i have however, suprised myself with how well i have done.

At one point last night, i had gone many hours without and just got so hot and felt like i was sweating buckets and all i could think of was running out and having a cig. i just had to, had to.

but im ok with that, i still stuck to what i set myself for the day and even had 3 left over.

Okay, how long did you smoke?  (symptoms normal for someone who has smoked for a while)

Hey my mom did that too. she said it helped. anytime she had a craving for one, she would brush her teeth or chew gum or mint leaves. She liked chewing fresh mint leaves when she wanted a cigarette as it was healthy and good!..

Good I am glad you have it under control.. It rally is hard but you can do it!
When My son was two, he ran up to his Grandpa who was sitting on the floor in front of the couch watching TV and smoking a cigarette.. well Grandpa did not see him coming and he ran square into the cigarette . It went straight into the corner of his eyeball not the outside, the inside.. It was aweful.. He was ok after a couple weeks, he had a bad burn inside his eye, and it horrified Grandpa that his cigarette burned that baby, and through away the pack and never smoked another cigarette for the rest of his life!.. He really hated it!!
