    After yesterday’s comic, I would have guessed Phil would leave for some emergency dental work. Instead he is resorting to butts. While it’s amusing to see the depths to which Phil stoops to find a cigarette, why doesn’t he just go and buy some? Maybe it’s some kind of “It doesn’t count if I smoke only a leftover butt” sort of thinking.

    I have a feeling all people who try to give up smoking go through this phase. It’s exceedingly hard to stop something you may have done for decades, especially something so addictive. Although I’ve never had this issue, I certainly feel for him and all those who try so hard to conquer this habit.

    Anyone notice that cars no longer have ashtrays or cigarette lighters?

    Yes…
    And they (rather cleverly) re-purpose the lighter sockets as power outlets!!

    What a terrible addiction to kick. Poor guy just needs to hole up somewhere with someone watching him so he can detox.

    I’m sure you’re right. And though I’m a militant anti-smoker I can be sympathetic. Anyone who’s tried to give up anything can. Ever been on a diet??

    How about some nicotine gum or a patch (or ten).

    Remember, this was 29 years ago. I don’t think they had Nicoderm or any of the other stop-smoking aids.

    Me too! Got about nine years quit.
    I started smoking when smokes were “safe” & “in vogue.”
    Can’t imagine why young’uns smoke nowadays.

    Anything that society frowns upon, the kids are determined to do. Movie actors and actresses
    all smoked When I was growing up; smoking was considered ‘sexy’ and ‘cool’. And yes, it is very addictive — I smoked for 60 years and tried many times to quit. It’s been 10 years since I finally succeeded. Now I have COPD. The kids who think it won’t happen to them are kidding themselves.

    I believe cars do, I just do not pay attention as a no smoker.
