    I was smoking a pack of tabs a day, started when my Dad's health was in decline, and continued for a while after he died. Two years in all. I won't deny they were very relaxing, but I decided to quit because only morons smoke. I was a moron, I knew this and I didn't care.

    The quitting bit was no bother- I stopped smoking one day and got on with my life without them. I can't say I really had any serious withdrawal issues. The worst bit was realising how much my effing clothes stunk of smoke!

    The tabloids were reporting it as definite rather than on the table.

    There's opposition but there's always opposition and even though they have undoubted influence I say that this will happen eventually and it will be a good thing.

    then you have to look at who 'they' are, and follow the money trail. it all leads back to the big tobacco/pharma

    apparantly only 3% can cold turkey quit. WD

    Yup. That's me. I judge anyone who has taken up smoking since about the mid sixties as fucking idiots and those who can't stop as fucking weak.

    I include in that group both my parents who were both smokers, my Mam would proudly announce that she smoked through four pregnancies without any ill effects to her or us kids. They both died of lung cancer. Fucking idiots!
     
  8. It is, and kids are decreasingly taking up smoking.

    I'm not saying smoking is better than vaping - tobacco should have been banned across the board years ago - I'm merely pointing out that there are some enjoyable things about having a tab. We don't all sit ther and go "must have another cancer stick cos I wish to hurtle faster towards death" like it's an addiction that we can't help. Some of us are social smoker cos we actually enjoy the experience.

    As a side note, why are beers getting stronger and stronger when, knowing the problems that alcohol causes, they could just as easily be capped at a session level? Sure, you can get a weaker version of your favourite wife beater, but a couple of pumps along there are numerous real ales north of 5%. I had a pint of 10% the other day, which was just in a row of normal pumps. When did this become a standard pint and not a special occasion one-off, hidden away at the back of the fridge?

    You would probably be right, but we can't have this place going to the dogs!

    Also, smokers, vapists and people who claim they cannot function without caffeine etc are very weak individuals, one hundred percent agreed.

    How the hell are you spending that much, I get through a hefty amount of juice but dont think I spend more than £20 a month now after switching to DIY.

    Its not long now till the do gooder backward nonsense vaping regulations kick in. Its going to make vaping more costly & complicated.

    Your 'test' is flawed. There's loads of things that aren't enjoyable at first but people continue doing and enjoy them. That's not addiction.

    Sorry like but I got put off at at an early age by dad for smoking like age of 7. But I couldn't give a fuck if people do.

    Yeah I'd prefer my dad and friends to stop. But they are free to do so, power to them.

    I have coffee everyday mind. I'm so used to doing it it's probably an addiction. I don't see it as being pathetic though, just an excuse for an extra few minutes break at work a couple of times a day.

    Aye im trying to get into that but hate it at the minute.

    Boxing another one. I doubt anyone went into the gym for the first time, got a couple of punches to the head and thought that was nice. Still go back though and becomes something they enjoy.
