You aren't just kidding! I gave up cigarettes and I'm still not happy about that! I gave them up for the greater good (my health but mostly the well-being of my wife. I just couldn't bare smoking while she is so worried.) But I had the cigs down to a moderate level (5 a day), which almost makes quieting them harder than if I were a pack a day smoker because I keep thinking "would 5 a day really cause my bladder cancer to return?" Then once the cigs were gone my 3 to 4 cup of coffee a day pleasure is down to about 1 and a half (and that half is mostly decaf!). The coffee just isn't the same without the cigs. But I refuse to give up that last cup a day!
