    That day that the doc talked to you after your op, after you thanked the Lord you should have bought a lottery ticket, regardless I think you came out smelling like a rose. Glad your ok.

    Well I never dipped but I smoked cigarettes for close to 50 years. I did quit a couple times for like 5 years each time, but deaths in the family got me to start again. No more family, even Rockie(African Grey Parrot)best friend and soulmate passed away on 1/3/2016. I don't see anything triggering me now, Bogart movies sure ain't gonna do it, besides I like that extra cash more than $120.00 per month. Later.

    Well don't hate me but there are many substitutes that will help, like gum, Straburst, Sweet-Tarts, Tic Tacs. I was a cigarette smoker and it was just as much about your hands as having that cigarette in your mouth. Last October 10th when I did the "Cold Turkey" thing what helped out with the hands was posting on threads a whole lot at GT. Then I had a squishy football to squeeze for other times. I chewed gum and also chewed on Starburst candy, Sweet-Tarts as well to substitute for that cigarette in my mouth. I sure hope can manage somehow, good luck.

    That's a great way to put it, that raise put at least 120 bucks a month into other things that I liked like great beer and steaks....mmmmmmm

    You go buddy. Copenhagen Long Cut was my favorite too. I can honestly relate. Keep up the good work - day at a time. God Bless and prayers to help.

    The next 3 weeks aren’t going to be fun, but after that you'll be good. You’ll get a craving every now and then, for me it was wintergreen grizzly so I’d just chew wintergreen gum whenever I felt the urge lol

    I recently had a prostate biopsy that I was pretty sure was going to indicate cancer (from the prelim numbers). At the follow-up consult, the Dr. walked in with a serious face and said, "Why don't you buy a lottery ticket today." I didn't get it at first, but when he said the 14 samples were all clear, I did the manly thing, started crying. I never did buy a lottery ticket because I felt I had already hit it two times with the tongue and prostate reports being negative for cancer!
    I am blessed above all men.

    There are so many better uses of your mouth. Ask your wife.
