9½ years
« on: January 19, 2018, 01:06:31 am »
Missed my date but it was a couple of days ago, just goes to show it doesn't figure in my mind much these days.
Anyhow come July I'll be a decade nicotine free and not missing it one iota.

While out at Xmas a couple friends of friends were smoking a joint, they offered me a puff. The drunken conversation went along the lines of "is there tobacco in that?" the answer was yes so I said " I won't then I quit tobacco a long time ago...."

 :yawn: I've not long woken up, but I read that you only turned down a toke on someone's doobie because you quit tobacco a long time ago.  ::)  Iron Man is a bad influence, always trying to subvert the rules.

Congratulations on making 9.5 years without smoking anything.

That's brilliant, 9.5 years!  Just goes to show it can be done and thank you for posting as it's encouraging for the rest of us.  My two close friends are ex smokers, 1 six years and the other 10 years and neither of those two ever fancy smoking anymore- they both say it smells awful.  I hope I eventually feel the same as you (and my friends) do. Well done.  Imagine how much money you would have spent on smoking in all that time!  :foundbeer:
Smoked for most of my adult life (and a fair bit of my childhood!).  Managed a two year quit 2014-2016 but started again!  Quit again on 6th January 2018 and lasted 7 months!  Back on the wagon again now...........

Well done.  9 1/2 years is brilliant. 

Im of the old fashioned school yard and as far as Im concerned you should always turn down the joint whether it has tobacco in it or not.  No good can come of it !!
After far too many years I stubbed out my final cigarette on February 6 2011 at 10 pm and havent looked back since.

Fair play to you @Phil Coulson !!  ;D

Like you, I quit joints at the same time as tobacco. I used to like the odd puff but these days a glass of wine or a wee dram is more to my taste anyhow.  008 008
Finally saw sense on 8/12/13

So many mountains, so little time...

What are the plans for the celebration of A Decade of Desisting @Phil Coulson ?

Will I need a costume or just a new dress and shoes?
Do I bring one bottle or 10?
Will there be dancing? Will I need to limber up?

In my defence I was very very drunk.  008

Well there are no plans yet but I imagine that dancing and copious amounts of alcohol will be on the cards.

Costumes? I don't think so, I've never really understood fancy dress, if I was invited to a vicars and tart's party I'd probably go as a cherry bakewell, so if you want to use it as an excuse for a new dress and shoes be my guest. 

No need for me to buy new clothes; I have a new shirt and waistcoat that I got a little before before Xmas, they were a tad snug then and were even snugger on NYE so I didn't wear them. Plenty of time to ease the fit before July, and progress already being made in that respect.

It was a very rare occurrence, I only ever had the occasional toke on other people's.

Looks like your knuckles need a whack with a ruler too.   009

In that case i'll need more than a ruler - perhaps a yard stick would be better  009

Irrespective of the need for ruler/yardstick, what's this about curtains and a goatee???!!!

We need photographic evidence @Teflon!!!!! 

Did you go to India to find yourself?  Wear tie dye?  Flip flops?
