    Nice Mark. Have you calculated how much money you have saved over those two years from not buying cigarettes?

    So do you dream about smoking?

    When I quit, a pack was 60 cents. That was 29 years ago. Stick with it, your future self will be grateful.

    I used to dream I was smoking, for a number of years, more than 2, more like 10! Didn't want one when I was awake, after a couple of weeks.

    Uh-oh, there goes yer gig at the bar! :p

    LOL, no... Still do the bar gigs but I have to immediately take a shower and throw my clothes in the washer when I get home from one!!

    Actually it's the "stale" smoke smell that kills me..

    There's a bar in town that's like that. You just reek when you get
    home. I do the same thing, my body and hair stink and
    I can't go to bed without a shower and changing.

    I have no idea why my wife put up with me smoking for the
    6 years she knew me before I quit. I must have totally stunk
    all the time.

    And when I quit k00ls were a buck and a quarter.

  18. Good for you. Smoke should only come out of fires, not out of your lungs.:D

    Rock on
