    Hmmm - getting complicated. Perhaps should have gone with Smoker / Non Smoker!

    And welcome trappistnight - thank you for playing!

    Attention ex-smokers / doctors / anyone with the right answer

    When does the expulsion ( ) of the black stuff (phlegm) from the lungs start / stop post quitting?

    Hi Howie

    You could probably google that question. I was coughing up shit for several weeks (around 8 or so) after I gave up but I remember reading it can take years for your lungs to recover as much as they can.

    Cheers and keep up the good work.
    George.

    I had the odd daily black offering while I was smoking!

    I ask 'cause I was waiting for the big badda-boom and much vaunted slimey avalanche It never came.

    But now approaching 3 months after D-Day, WTF? Here's Johhny! How long has that been in there I ask myself. I was hacking it up while a smoker, then what came up this week must have been there months and months or years!

    Attention: SQUAD

    Would be most grateful if any with the power to do so (that's at least Baz) would add an extra option for the particularly difficult customers which include no lesser lights than Jessop and Mac.

    That option to read: 'Smoking - Other' (preferably as the middle option if that's not pushing it too much)

    Thanks in advance.

    I think you've made it.

    I always thought three months was the magic mark.

    I you smoke again now, you've not failed in your attempt, you've started again.

    Well done.
    Cheers

    Cheers Big Ears. The chances of starting again are somewhere between [Alex] becoming prsident of the CAQ and my beating Igor Goldenberg chess with classic time controls.

    ooohhh I get the connection between the three

    between one and six people would have to die huh.

    (one would have to die for you to beat Igor and about half dozen for [Alex] to lead CAQ).

    No short walks on piers allowed!

    Hi George

    Just for the record I have no interest in:

    a.) Leading the CAQ council; or
    b.) Becoming part of the CAQ council, in any capacity, anytime in the near future (ie. 2-3 years minimum).

    Why would I want to? Bill Powell is doing an excellent and terrific job as CAQ President. He has my allegiance, loyalty, and fullest confidence.

    As for using the word 'die', please be very careful George. If firegoat got banned for simply asking a question regarding a short walk on a pier, using the word 'die' could also see power tripping Bonham tossing you off bb for a week, over my strongest objections of course

    Maybe a long jump over a short sandpit?
