    I quit 9 years ago ... smoked for 37 years (started at age 19 ... why, I don't know).

    I do enjoy being around people who are smoking - that burnt tobacco aroma is still pleasing, but I don't want to smell like a walking ashtray anymore or have my clothes reek with that pungent odor, so I have no interest in starting ever again.

    One year after quitting though I contracted Diabetes ... along with weight gain ... if smoking didn't get me into the grave sooner, diabetes will for sure.

    Yes all good thoughts and comments - smoking does give a nice aroma. Me I'm a late starter (not sure why either), as never like smoking much, never did it in my teens, still don't or like cigarettes could never get the hang of them and never found them of interest. But Cigars - I love a good (or even not so good cigar), old style I don't inhale just taste as in correct cigar smoking style and also pipe smoking (old style again- not any illegal stuff). Love to aroma and the relaxation it brings. I also find it a nice pleasant outdoor activity with a good wine or scotch. So I'm a bit like a born again smoker- its my religion.......

    As Krummhorn mentions- being around people how smoke has a nice aroma and is (was- think PC is killing this) a good social way to meet and make discuss work/ business decisions. Sorry to hear about your Diabetes- think that would make me give up.

    John - pins and needles on the back of my head- now that is some sort of reaction- scary but as you mention - you miss the old smokey venue atmosphere.

    I think a White Owl cigar would do anyone in

    Yep they grow tobacco here - in Queensland's tropical climate areas mainly.

    Years back, I was married to a RN. There were frequent doctors/nurses parties at the local watering holes.

    Before I release the punch line a little bit of back history: most medical professionals tell us "don't smoke, don't drink .. it'll kill you!"
    We've all heard that many times.

    Well, at those parties, you never saw such a huge gathering of smokers and boozers in your life ... everyone of those very doctors who told us to not smoke looked like chimneys, one right after the next, and always with a refilled glass of hooch in the other hand ... what a joke.

    Yah, don't smoke or drink ... save 'em for all the doctors and nurses so there will be enough for their parties.

    I agree Lars. I was lucky enough to know several nurses when I was young and they all seemed to smoke and drink. Great. With their hands full they found it harder to ward me off.

    Hi teddy,
    Cutting down just doesn't work.
    I stopped about 35 yrs ago and have never had another tab (GeordieTalk) since.
    Mind, it was about my 5th attempt.

    One or two cigars a day, after a full meal; never inhale and no spliffs!
    Whatever floats your boat May your reach always exceed your grasp

    Quickest way for a married man to give up smoking is to only smoke after making love.
