These days I only light one up when I'm drinking, which doesn't happen very often anymore, so I figure I can afford to indulge in a bit of rule-bending every now and then. I haven't felt the urge to smoke on a daily basis in years, thankfully – it just makes me feel ill.

I am basically a 20 a day smoker, and I really desperately need to cut down. The thing is that I don't particularly want to quit. I enjoy most of the cigarettes I have, I love smoking while wasted and it gives my nervous hands and mouth something to do when talking to people. But I'd like to have a pack of tobacco last over a week. I'd like to be able to go to bed and not start jonesing for a cigarette. I'd like to not lose my breath after walking up a hill.
Vaping was probably better for me, but it didn't help me cut down on my nicotine intake, I just had it constantly next to me. And all resources seem aimed at quitting, not reduction.

I lucked out with quitting because I didnt start thinking about it until I realized that I gotten to a point where I actively hated smoking, which made it easier than it would have been otherwise.
My partner smoked more than me, 30 or more a day, and quit using that Chantix prescription pill. I was skeptical but at least for her, it worked like magic, her cravings went away in a matter of weeks, and its been 4 or 5 years now of smooth sailing.
