I never realized "years" are shorter in California than here is West Virginia. Must be the mountains here in WV blocking the sunlight, slowing things down.

Re: Stop Smoking Thread

The single best thing you can do for your health is to stop smoking. If it helps those trying to quit, every time you smoke a cigarette you damage your lungs. Every time. It is unavoidable. Moreover, the damage you do is utterly irreparable. You might be told differently, but whoever telling you is either ignorant or lying.

Those found smoking in the Steinholme are assumed to be on fire and treated accordingly. Good luck to all, it certainly isn't a monkey that gets of your back easily.

Don't worry Jazzy, you're just in the smoking nazi phase, Lol. Trust me, in a few more years you'll think nothing of it. The smell won't trigger any more emotion than someone farting.

Re: Stop Smoking Thread

I was talking about this with someone this morning, I was a 40 a day smoker until about 15 years ago, and haven't touched one since, however I do still miss it on occasions, the reason smoking is so addictive is because it's so bloody pleasurable.

Luckily enough when I was about 10 , another kid give me a cigarette to smoke ,took 2 puffs on it , made me feel sick and never touched them again, I have no problem with other people smoking , but I hate the born again smokers who once they have stopped try to preach at smokers, their actually worse than people who have never smoked

Couldn't have said it better. It's a natural inclination when you stop smoking, but I never wanted to be one of THOSE guys. Drives ya nuts...
