    I remember sometimes when there was nothing on, my dad would get the slide projector out and we'd work our way through the collection. I still have the kit & boxes of memories.

    Old-hat now, but irreplaceable.

    Absolutely. At the end of the day, who's to say what's right or wrong, when we don't have proof one way or the other.

    I try to end the day with a smile on my face and hope that I've raised a few on other peoples' as well, just in case this is all we have.

    I think you need to make your own luck. As long as you have calculated all the risks - go for it.

    My mum used to say "we're a long-time dead'.

    They will say that it's all about freedom of choice. But if that were really the case, then many other pieces of legislation would be equally relaxed.

    To be fair, governments have know about the danger of smoking for decades and whilst they are happy to raise revenue from smokers (same as motorists, in that respect), no party seems willing to offer a direct solution.

    I've lost so many relatives to cancer & smoking, I really detest tobacco.

    Personally, I think it should be outlawed.

    Maybe a bit 'extreme', but when I think of the lifes' it would save - I can find no good reason against my view.

    Really chuffed for you, mate.

    My mum & dad both smoked and sadly it either took years off them or made their years that bit less healthy.

    I''ve never smoked, but I can appreciate that however much logic you can employ as a valid reason to stop, the habit is still very difficult to crack - which makes your achievement all the more noteworthy.

    Nice one (keep up the good work),

    TBH Ian, I like to think we operate a very relaxed environment. People can chat and get sympathy or a resolution, and that's all good.
    The rules are logical, and there for a good reason - we only employ them to protect the forum for the benefit of all, moving forwards. We also like a bit of banter, where everyone pitches in, and nobody takes themselves too seriously - I think that is what's key to a good culture, in fairness, which some forums sadly lack.
    Wit & common-sense? The wife wouldn't use those words, but I am very logic-driven (pure right-brainer), and I try my level best to add a bit of levity wherever appropriate - thanks for noticing.

    Hope you are still smoke-free, it's the best gift you can give yourself & your loved ones.

    Take care mate,

    I think the forum has in essence, all the benefits that the internet has to offer; to inform, educate and entertain, (sans frontiers). It has a very special place in my heart, and although I've only met a few members, I feel each and every member is a friend.
    Glad you like my posts, I always try to inject a bit of wit (when appropriate), and a good helping of old-fashioned 'common-sense'.

    Thanks Ian.

    This forum has been a part of my life for so long, it's hard to remember what things were like beforehand.

    Still, I enjoy it here, and hopefully that's conveyed through my posts.

    Thank you for the message and your kind words, all very much appreciated.

    Paul
