Which would be say once a week. While I know that this is not as good as not smoking at all......... I am pretty happy with my level of control GMAT Club Legend Affiliations: HHonors Diamond, BGS Honor Society Joined: 05 Apr 2006 Posts: 5926 Schools: Chicago (Booth) - Class of 2009 GMAT 1: 730 Q45 V45 WE: Business Development (Consumer Products) Followers: 315 Kudos [?]: 2052 [0], given: 7 Re: Smoking, oh its so much fun to quit.

I tried that a few years ago and a smoke with a drink on weekends turned into a "smoke with a drink on weekdays" to "a smoke when I get home from work with a drink" to "a smoke when I get home" to "a smoke when I have lunch" to "a pack a day".

Luckily I have broken the cig in the morning/after eating routine. I just need to sack up and stop altogether now!

Would like to point it out to everyone that I DID NOT resurrect this old thread.

I have not smoked anything since junior high school.
I never really understood smoking anyway.

Congrats rhyme.

Thats not a coincidence - I intentionally quit before b-school because I didn't want to be the guy at recruiting events sneaking out for a smoke or otherwise stinking up a storm at interviews.

Congrats Rhyme. I myself do not smoke regularly. Last time was for a close friends first born, smoked a cigar. It wasn't so tasty.
