    I have been quit for 1 Week, 1 Day, 22 hours, 17 minutes and 54 seconds (8 days). I have saved £53.57 by not smoking 357 cigarettes. I have saved 1 Day, 5 hours and 45 minutes of my life. My Quit Date: 02/03/2010 00:00

    Lol, I must have spent the £53.57p.
    Smoked for 30 years and went cold turkey 8 days ago. Actually found it surprisingly easy after day three

    Don't smoke, never have. Best thing to happen was no smoking in the pubs.

    Just found out that a very good friend of mine has been diagnosed with COPD at 63 years old. Was a smoker for a lot of years.

    Never smoked. Not once - not even tried it as a kid. Absolute mug's game.

    Nor I. Never had the desire to start. My parents smoked, so I knew early on how disgusting and costly it is.

    If I'm not reading through my Comptia A+ book then I'm at the Gym... either one of the two
    and smoking makes a hell of a difference when going to the gym not as much doing weight training than CV
    but still a noticeable difference and I don't go by the saying of "Live fast, Die young" I would like to live for a
    long time thank you :D

    There is only one plus side to Smoking and thats your brain is telling you that its nice and tastes good...
    but its doing you alot of damage really, I'm going to stop lecturing anyway I'm sure youve heard it all before :biggrin

    That's another thing I never took a liking to. Been drunk once in my life: at my bachelor party. Never again.

    I do drink me some Cokes, though.

    Hey stay on topic Mr . . . . just kidding, says me!

    I've never smoked. Its never appealed to me and I think I'd be one of those people who wouldn't suit smoking if you looked at me.

    I don't mean it in a sexist way but I think there is nothing more unattractive than a good looking lady with a cigarette in her mouth

    I smoke, i know how ridiculous it is, and i intend on stopping sooner rather than later, but right now i don't want to.

    A couple of months ago i decided i wanted to, stopped for about a month and a half. Then i finished with my girlfriend and decided good time to start again :)

    EDIT: Going out for a drink with friends watching football etc is the best fun. Not saying the drink part is neccessary, i just love the banter that flies around once we have had a few.

    We can't help it mate, having sexual magnetism is a curse I tell ya . . . . :lol: The fact that I've got more front than Blackpool also helps 8)
