    New laws on smoking!

    I gave up over a year ago.Really enjoyed a smoke (used to smoke approx 20 cigs per week)and still sometimes get cravings.At the time I was smoking,a pack would cost me 6.30p.Looks like they're going up!

    Yep that was me on Friday!lol On a more serious note....After a couple of weeks giving up,I started thinking about the actual motion of smoking.For me it was'nt so much the nicotine hit,it was more like I was breathing deeper (to inhale).So I decided that every time I had a craving,I would just focus on my deep breathing and it worked!So thats what I did on Friday,and luckily it worked.

    Can't handle a flashing-house any more, but still love a cool and gentle pipe. On the beach in Ibiza many moons ago, we were making pipes out of fruit and vegetables, it was amazing, and a giggle beyond the giggles. Apparently two of the local constabulary had been watching us all afternoon, and they were in hysterics too.

    The best was smoking through an onion, so cool and refreshing. Go on , make yourself a wee pipe out of an onion right now, you'll be amazed

    I always enjoyed smoking. I was finding society anti smoking and this was impacting on my enjoyment. First it was public transport, but that really didn't effect me as I had my own vehicles, the pub was a big deal. Having to go outside for a fag in all weathers! It was easier to roll a spliff and go outside with a couple of mates and share a few spliffs. I was lucky in that I was often in Spain and it didn't come in in Spain for several years after. Work/office environment was also stupid. Downtime cost to the business and corporate image of 4or 5 staff members stood outside the main entrance smoking. I never paid duty in tens of years so importing my own tobacco ment it was never about cost. What was playing heavy on my mind was when my dad was alive at 52 years of age, I would take him ferreting in my lorry. He was buggered for walking for more than half hour & there's no way I would wish to be out of breath, when I got to a time of life I should really be enjoying my free time. So it was more luck than judgement when I finally stopped smoking cigarettes. The UK government were making too much in Tax for smoking to be affordable. Spain took a dive with no smoking in bars and the cost of duty free tobacco gradually increased. 4 years now since I stopped. It's just about long enough for the craving to be none existent. If your a occasional smoker it can be managed,no two people are the same.
    even a gypsy caravan is too much settling down.

    pot is better when not polluted with this noxious, toxic rubbish called tobacco.
    but each to their own

    Weeds will grow where they will grow, thankfully, and not all jihad involves filthy meat

    just get a bit higher without tobacco, and then eat more rubbish as the starvation kicks in.

    I'm a smoker. Gave up for two years, put on two stone, then went back to smoking. Bloody fool woman!

    I was a smoker for 40 odd years, packeted cigarettes, rollies and a pipe, gave it up on grounds of cost over 20 years ago, but within a week of giving up my health got much better and I could breath easier and whats more my clothes stopped stinking.
