I am going through the agony of giving up smoking.

Apart from my health here is another good reason to stop.

I have smoked a pipe for 45 years

Cost $45.00 per week  X 52 weeks  =  $2340.00 per annum  X 45 years  =  $105,300

I repeat  $105,300  No wonder I feel sick.

The good news is that I should have an extra $2340 per year to spend on trains

Good luck with that Don.

If you want, we can have Dave put up no smoking sign in the chat room for you. :)

Don:

The very best of luck with that !  I quit cold turkey in 1970 and I have to admit it wasn't easy.  Just keep in your mind that YOU CAN DO IT !

 

The best part about quitting smoking, apart from the health issues, is that you find you have a much keener sense of taste.

 

Once again  ...............  Good Luck !!!

I know what you are going through Don. I myself am quitting smoking all on account of me going to be a dad. I promised my girlfriend I would quit before the baby is here. So you are not alone buddy. It is hard I can tell you that. I am having a little bit of trouble but I am getting through it.

I smoked a pipe until I went to the dentist (once every century, weather I need it or not) and the girl cleaning my teeth asked how many packs a day did I smoke? I told her none, and she said, (and I quote) "bulls♫♫t, where do you think all this crap comes from?" I went home, chucked all the 'baccky and pipes in the shop stove, and never looked back. You can do it too!!

 JUST DON'T MESS WITH MY BOURBON!

Pretty soon Minnesota will have a Clean Outdoor air act passed. Smoking in Public Outside will carry the Death Penalty.

Smoking Indoors gets you Killed revived killed revived and then Finally Beat to death by  your local Chapter of Mothers against Mad Smokers!!!:Doh:

Don, first off :apl:

Next, you will get to a point where you will have more money saved and you will be so happy that your crabbyness will go away... :)

Get yourself a big glass bottle, I mean a large one... 4L or bigger. Put the money you would have spent on smokes in there.. this will give you incentive to keep going.

Then when jar is full, take out the money and spend spend spend... big RR order, shopping spree for home, take girlfriend for dinner... something to reward yourself.
