HB as you know I dipped a can a day for 35 plus years and gave it up one day so you can to.
I look forward to training together, wherever that may be so you better get in shape it would be hell to be outrun by a 51 year old, I would not let you live it down.
"A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013
Began smoking at 13. Quit 6 times before it finally took. That was only because of the psychic shock of losing my father at age 60. He smoked but gave it up at 55. I was 30 and my grandfather was 90 at the time. It was doubly painful to see him lose his first born son. I took the 30 60 90 as a sign and a warning.
Nicotine is the most addictive drug. I applaud you for quitting. Do whatever it takes to rid yourself of it. Your life and loves are the reward.
I reject your reality and substitute my own!

I quit about 40 yrs ago. I'm 71 and still strong. I have lost many family members to the effects of smoking, if you want to live a long and useful life stay away from smoking .
all that silly info. facts shmacts if you ask me.
I think the older generations have an excuse with the lack of info. the culture was much different regarding smoking.
I have only been at a pack a day for about 7 years. little less of an excuse available when you start in the mid 2000s.
Good lick HB and glockmann. Still on the can, like HB I like it. It seems the psychological part is just as challenging as the actual physical cravings. Good luck guys! Replace it with a positive habit and reward itself w the $ you save.

Good for you. I will be syaing prayers that you are successful.
In early august, I attended a funeral for my friend's grandfather. While I was listening to the sermon and his grandfather's life, I was amazed at how similar hisgrandfather's life was to my grandfather's. They were born 4 months apart,helped support their famlies during the depression, both lied about their age to sign up for the service during WWII, and gave alot back to their communitees. The big difference was his grandfather never smoked, lived 13 years longer and got to spend time his his great grandchildren.
I started chewing tobacco at the age of 7 and quit when I was 33 I am now 43. I had tried halfheartedly to quit a few times because of peer pressure and the fact that I knew that it was bad for me. It didn't work for me until I WANTED TO quit. Until I WAS READY.
Harryball, it sounds to me like you have the right attitude and that YOU ARE READY! I will be pulling for you, don't give up.....
By the way, when I did quit I kept a fresh can of Copenhagen (that was my weakness) around.... It was there if I wanted it..... Kinda like reverse psychology on myself, but I didn't need it.
Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!
