Mike is right on the money with his advice re quitting--if the stuff isn't handy you wont be tempted--or if you are tempted it will be a hassle to get some more. You will have time to think about what you are doing before you get there.

That's what I did.

Good advice Herb. I'm still smoking.....though my health is starting to feel the effects of it....not to mention the high costs  and BIG BROTHER outlawing everything.

    Good luck to you Don. You can do it.

I gave up the 3 pack a day habit back in 1990 those Camel non filters were hard on my old ticker, It hasnt worked right since. That was my incentive to quit. :old dude:still smoke free. 

 To think of the money I wasted on smokes for 16 years.

Good advice Herb!

Life is not meant to be a journey to the grave in a pretty & well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up,totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming,

Wow, What a ride!"!:glad:

enjoy life how y'all see fit...

Keep it going, quitting is a worthwhile endeavor. I'm glad I quit before I got married, because afterword the crabing would have led to divorce and then I would have just started smoking again. 37 years and counting and now the only, well almost ony nasty habit is trains. Is there such a yhing as SMTA (scale model trains annonymous).

Yeash. I picked up smoking in Iraq. Chewing tobacco too, since you can't smoke in a helicopter. It's easy to ignore the health risks when there's a good chance you'll get blown up tomorrow. Quit the chewing when I got back after my last trip, the cigs aren't as easy. I don't smoke in the winter, but when summer hits and it gets hot, I get the itch. Must be some psychological trigger that makes me think of the desert. I told myself "it's ok, I'll quit when I get back." I've been back for three years now, I should get on that, eh?

Here's a "smoking" story. Years back, I worked at a great hobby shop here in Dallas, smoking was allowed. It seemed like most everybody who came by smoked cigars, cigarettes, or pipes...or a combination of all three. I didn't know that the store had a smoke detector until one day a fellow brought his Lionel Challenger (multi bucks) loco in to be lubed. We didn't have a track large enough to run this beast around so it could just sit, make lots of sound, and smoked with a fan-injected unit. This thing put out so much smoke (and nasty smelling also) that it fired off the smoke detector! Imagine after all those times it COULD have gone off, it waited till a big old steam loco did the job. I believe that it was the first time the store's doors had to be propped open since a fire in the back room. Another memory brought back to my old brain...thanks.
