    I would have finished my 1000th cigarette of the year today. I have saved over 310 bucks so far.

    One month 18 days and 19 hours.

    I highly recommend that vaporizer canon thing I've been using. It has been the entire solution to breaking the filthy habit. :grad:

    Are you the fat one, or the guy who looks like he had a face fire stomped out with golf spikes?

    I keep getting you and that Stew Nod guy mixed up. Either way, I really don't see how you have any room to comment. :grad:

    Good luck staying off the tobacco. It is a long journey to actually quitting, but it is worth the effort.

    Hair might deserve it's own thread.


    Big thanks to Slippy and Reggae Mistress with the suggestion to use a pick on my hair on a daily basis.

    Since I've been 'picking' my hair every day, it's really been doing wonders. It's healthier than it's ever been, and I'm pretty sure that this is the longest it's ever been.

    But back in high school, when I first started smoking cigarettes, they used to get me high, at least the first one of the day. :nocheer:

    Don't you see how I have yet again set style?

    All of a sudden, long hair is popular again. Very fashionable. I set the trends bro, I don't follow them.

    :c

    I finally decided that it was time. I had been told that to smoke after 40 is asking for guaranteed future health problems. I probably stopped too late, but better late than never.

    But I had to 'want' it, not be forced to do it. And again, this e-cigarette vape canon has really helped everything. I started it with 24mg of nicotine, and now have had it down to the lowest of 6mg of nicotine for the past couple weeks.

    Hats off to ya, man... :hat:
    I smoked socially (maybe a pack every 10 days) for a few years but quit about 7 years ago. For me, it wasn't really that hard but I know for some it is. As little as I smoked, once I stopped, I immediately slept better and food did in fact taste different. I coughed up nasty looking stuff for a few weeks but all is good now...
