They aren't.

The best bit for me was during the summer when i thought i would just have the one smoke...I didn't like it at all, one drag was enough. Mission accomplished i think.

You gave up smoking?

The one thing that could lend you the tiniest vestige of cool?

That's some sacrifice. Well done!

gave up earlier in the year. took it up again recently because I like it so much (I think, else I'm just addicted to being addicted to something).
now finding it hard to give up again, I'm just not ready. though I can cut it out at the weekends (unless I'm out drinking), so it's about 2 a day weekdays.

bastard things.

£3.25, so £1183 a year for a ten a day habit? I kinda thought it'd be more than that really. It does buy 30 good Cuban cigars over the course of a year though.

Someone asked me how long I'd packed up smoking the other day and I couldn't remember and had to look here, turns out I'm about to notch up 6 years :)

I just worked out what it would be costing me now if I was still smoking what I did back then, 3k a fcuking year !!

Out of interest, do the ex-smokers on here occasionally have one if pissed or so?

It's been a few years since I bought a packet or smoked with any sense of purpose, but I've had probably 25-40 cigarettes in that 2 year period, usually due to being battered.

It doesn't at all encourage me to get back into the hobby, but I don't mind doing it either. But I have a friend who is like a recovering alcoholic around cigarettes and he stopped the same time as me and has been massively anti-them ever since.

He does not play tennis Strawman. I can confirm that he has no basic groundstroke to speak of.

Do you want to? I still quite like smoking, if I'm honest. I just quit because it's bad for me or something. I like the taste/habit of it.

Not really. I do occasionally think it'd be nice to have a cigar for pure enjoyment (I still like the smell) say with a drink in the garden on a nice summer's evening, but it's just a thought, not a desire of any kind.

My friend brought me a cigar back from Cuba (can't remember if I mentioned that before or if it was one of those posts that I wrote, read back, bored myself shitless with and deleted) and I'm saving it for an occasion. I don't know what this is but I think it's summery. Can you have a winter cigar? Only indoors probably.

I think I'd be like your mate, drinking and smoking go so well together that when I quit smoking I had to quit drinking too. I'm now just drinking a fraction of the amount I used to andI'm quite scared of getting blotto again as I know I'll end up smoking.

No self control you see

YOLO!!!!!
