How does one accidentally quit smoking? Asking for many friends.
out of fear/force. i had to get put in the hospital with pneumonia and auto cold turkey'd for some days to actually quit. that lasted for like half a year, my longest quit. now i'm back to a pack and a half as of however many years.
the danger is that smoking is legitimately really awesome, one of my favorite activities...as a non-smoker. when you're off it and light up again, it is extremely pleasurable - and not in an addict way, just in a sensory way. but when you get 2 weeks back in to being an addict again, it becomes as completely terrible as it was before.
