No Smoking Day

Hi Everyone!

Hi all,

I've "lurked" this forum since I went cold turkey last Thursday.

Today is my 8th day without the dreaded nicotine.

I've smoked since I was 19 years old and turned 50 at the latter half of last year.

The first 10 years I was on cigarettes and averaged 40 per day.

The last 21 years I have been on Hamlet Miniature cigars (hope it's ok to mention the name!) and was averaging 15 per day with full inhalation.

What was I thinking!

Although many of you didn't know it, you've been a great source of strength and encouragement during my "lurking" period and I just wanted to say thank you.

Here's something from the past that will hopefully give you all a good laugh...

I'm looking forward to my stay here and my steady rise to that penthouse! :D

Welcome Capitan. 8 days is a great achievement, top job.

Hamlet cigars eh? You must've been a proper whiffy smoker! No offence, but even when I smoked I couldn't stand the smell of cigars, and now they make me want to hurl!!

Keep on keeping on, the penthouse is worth all the effort.

Thanks for the welcome ladies :)

Hells bells Helsbelles (see what I did there), and there I was thinking I was being all suave and debonair!

Did you watch the Dave Allen YouTube sketch I posted above? Quality comedy from a quality comedian who is sadly missed.
