I expect to be able to do a km in under 5 minutes within a week month or two....



Blow me skeptics! :)

Did you know that smoking kills more people than every other paper-related illness combined?
It's "pea-can", man.

Chantix fucking works. Buy some sugarless (none of that nicotine stuff for obvious reasons) gum also you'll notice a marked increase in your ability smell and taste and there may be a slight (justified) feeling of superiority.

Seriously that's great. Congrats.

Always and forever. It's why I keep coming back AA.

Using the patch. Seems to be working.

Don't start thinking you can lay in the prone position in your bunk.

As the Captain says! There's no quittin' smokin' in the prone position! If you must quit you must have both legs over the bunk. If you throw things includin' the building's cat, you must have both legs over the bunk!

Any man quittin' smokin' or throwing the cat in the prone position spends a night in the box with the cat!

Dude. Smoking tobacco kills.

Old people hurt 'Merica.

It costs less for us to bury you from cancer than it does to bury you from a broken hip or whatnot. Social Security being what it is.

Smoke.

Do it for 'Merica.

No thanks. If I manage to make it to 70 I'd figured that I'd pull a Frank Sinatra and start again then. As Frank noted when he took it up again, "Like I'm going to live any longer?"

Dude. If you can prove he said that I'll give you a win.

I remember, decades ago, that ... who the fuck ... uryl ... something uryl brenter?? ... anyway, died of lung cancer and pussed out and said, "If I could not have smoked, I would not have smoked,"I so much regret it," or some such nonsense.

What a weeb.

Any pussy can get hit by a truck. It takes a real man to die from cancer.
