    Secind order of business, the cost is not the main concern. Its my addictive personality and sheer will power. I did manage to give up for 3 weeks when Andrew was born and was going great guns.

    Subsequently, I received THAT phone call while I was in Melbourne. First thing I did was grab a smoke. Yet to find the resolve to do it again. Perhaps July 19th 08:40 am will get me there.
    Good luck!

    No, I was brought up in Manchester. At primary school the local corner shop sold single woodbines or park drives to whoever could muster one halfpenny (or was it a farthing?).

    Was on 40 a day by the time I was 18yo.

    CLARIFICATION FOR BORIS AND OTHER CANCERIANS:

    The option: "Never Have" includes social smokers. Therefore the first option is amended to NEVER HAVE BEEN ADDICTED.

    There is no cure for leftism. Its infestation of the host mostly diminishes with age except in the most rabid of specimens.

    I am a dirty little boy. Would you care to vote in the poll for completeness sake. I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

    Funnily enough, I am doing a survey for uni at the moment on smoking! Or more accurately, how people react to the warnings on cigarette packets. I will happily donate to you my first born child and/or any part of my body that you desire (leg, arm, lung, kidney, heart - anything!) if you take a couple of minutes to do it. Basically you look at a couple of cigarette packets, click a few buttons and hey presto, it's all over. It should only take about three minutes to complete and you can win a $50 voucher to Amazon.com for taking the time to help me out (that's 50 American Dollars, so about $70 Australian).

    Thank you!

    I am a smoker. Have been since I was 12. I know all the reasons that I shouldn't be smoking, but still haven't found the resolve to give them away. Have quit in the past, the longest period being 3 months. I think that until you decide that you want to quit, there isn't any point in attempting, so save your sermons for someone that is ready to quit It will be wasted on me
    Get into chess, its a lifetime of enjoyment!
