    I'd like to share the wonderful news that after 31 years, I have finally quit smoking :):spinning::)

    If you're currently a Smoker.... please try and stop. It's easier than you fear.

    The Pro's far outweigh the Con's..... o_O

    If I can do it, anyone can....

    I'm very happy for you, Kevmac.
    So...what do you do instead? When I quit smoking for a few weeks (long time ago), it seemed as if the days would never end.

    If I'd quit, I'd probably have the money to go to Pandora Land AND Tokyo Disney Sea!:) (but it's a looooooong flight to Japan, and they don't allow smoking inside the plane:rolleyes:)

    Well done Kev! Moving or any new start is really the best time to quit, it's way easier in an all new environment. Keep up the good work. :bravo:

    My mum and brother smoke and I keep begging them to quit. It physically turns me. They smoke in the kitchen too near food and it makes me so angry that I tell them I'm not eating anything until they stop it.

    I think you're quite right to do that, Sarah. I only smoked in the lounge of our old house and that was bad enough. Kitchen, bedroom or any other place was a no, no... ;) Whilst packing-up to move, I was cleaning all the picture frames before wrapping them. The frames from the lounge were truly filthy.... where as the frames from other rooms were just dusty... :oops: Shameful really... :cool1

    Now that I've stopped, I really notice how disturbingly strong the smell of other folks cigarette smoke is....? Thankfully, it's so socially unacceptable nowadays it's no loss. I have promised myself not to become a rabid anti-smoker though.... frantically waving the air and over-dramatically coughing... :rolleyes: I guess it'll always remain a personal choice.

    It is my top pet hate. It really is stinking on every level. The smell is turnful. Every time I come home, much as I love my family, it sticks to my clothes. I won't have them do it near me and will leave the room before I will stand in it.
