i agree. i definitely need to quit. i think for me it;s more psychological addiction than physical as i am able to get down to 10 cigs a day without any physical withdrawal symptoms. But i have to focus really hard to get down even to that because it's such a nervous habit and as i also have panic disorder, agoraphobia, obsessive compulsive disorder and secondary depression it seems i'm always anxious and always have to have something to do. however i desperately want to quit in order to gain weight. i'm only 30 so lung cancer and heart disease, though I know they're possible even at my age, seem kind of remote and i don't really worry about that right now. But being able to gain 10 to 20 pounds would be freakin awesome. I wish I was one of those people who ate when I was anxious or depressed. Course, with my nerves, if i did that i'd probably end up morbidly obese.
