    I quit because a) I was disgusted with myself and b) a family member died from lung cancer.

    I am still working on quitting (my pipe still has a firm grip) but because of my children.

    Because I knew the government and all it's related tentacles (such as the upcoming Health Care exchanges) would punish me and bleed me dry for smoking. Basically, every dime I paid on cig taxes was another dime that would be used against me personally one way or another. :mad:

    I quit to save my lungs, and to save more money for Burning Man.
    1.5 months = 1 tier 3 ticket.

    I quit because I loved smoking so much that I knew I would never ever stop... so this healthier alternative was perfect.

    Nice thread.... I quit because I hate what cigarettes were doing to me. It felt like my lungs were collapsing every morning but I still went for the pack. Saving $300 a month is just a bonus!!

    I quit... by accident.

    I stayed quit of them, though, because I realized that there was, in fact, something that would give me the enjoyment I got from smoking in an alternative form which was a lot healthier. I would likely have smoked until I croaked, otherwise.

    I quit because:

    My uncle/father figure, an ex-smoker, is in the hospital with pneumonia again and it's not looking good.
    My grandmother, a smoker, died of cancer (breast, bone, and then brain).
    My mom had cancer, although never a smoker, and we have strong genes.
    SO expensive.
    As a smoker, I was always ostracized in public.
    Going outside everywhere was a pain.
    I never could cut down and keep smoking less.
    I stunk.

    The stink, clogged lungs, phlegm production, yellow fingers and cost.
    I was starting to sound like the female on Squid-billies...
    I found vaping to be an effective means to quit the analogs, can't believe it has become such a hobby!
    I never posted on any board how exciting it was to find a new brand of smoke or a way to get more vapor
    from an analog!
