That's always fun. Hey asshole, suck on this.

One time I accidentally smoked an Amish buggy. I went to pass and realized there was a car coming at me. So I got on it and smoked the shit out of them.

I felt bad.

I was driving a 94 dodge diesel work truck once and a while during the winter months in Winnipeg when we were working at one of the converter stations and...even when the dam thing was warm I could EASILY smoke out every single intersection I had to stop at.

It's actually pretty hilarious when you can't really do anything about it since the boss didn't really care to fix the problem.

During the summer months it was perfectly fine though...lol

The Cummins 600 engines smoke pretty easy. If you get moving at part throttle, up to say 25mph. Then floor it, there isn't enough air to burn all the fuel so POOF

I must say though the spooling whine is awesome in those old dodges. If you drive by a building at full throttle with your side window open it's almost deafening :rockon:

It was probably amplified cause of the huge load it was towing but never-the-less.

BTW FUZZY, you still smoke free or did you give in? :beatstick:

thought i'd revive this old thread.

I've been smokefree for 2 weeks now, decided it was costing too much and I wanna save for a house.

luckily we get free patches courtesy of the NHS :rockon:
(its about time we got something out of the $150 billion a year it costs us)

got in my car the other day and realised it absolutely stinks even though I rarely smoke in it, so spent 4 hours today cleaning him up to get rid of the smell :thumbup:

anyways i'm rather pleased with myself, I wanted to quit for a while but its difficult, not just the addiction but the habit of having a break every hour or so and stopping for a smoke.

Kudos to everyone else who has managed it :rockon:

^^Good for you! :thumbup:

I'm glad that I never smoked; after reading about how addictive it is, it's amazing that folks can kick the habit. (Disclaimer: I did smoke for part of the summer between sixth and seventh grades but I didn't inhale- where have we heard that before :roll: - so it doesn't count, right?)

def something smokers never notice, is the trail of stank they leave, whether it be a house, car, even clothing. congrats on quitting :thumbup:

Fuzzy and I quit around the same time IIRC, but not sure if he is still off the habit. I'll be two year cig free this August.
If I could just figure out how to meld the Outback and the Neon into one car...

I quit using thos e"smokeless" eCig's. It worked. By the end of the 1st month, as I slowly went down in nicotine, I didn't even remember to smoke. Easiest time I ever quit - 3 years back.

Cold turkey is harsh. I'd also recommend the gum. But follow the directions to the letter if you want the greatest chance of quitting--they do research and test this stuff. Don't wait 'til you're dying for a cigarette before you chew a piece.

Weight gain is caused by your metabolism adjusting, not from using food to replace the nicotine urges. It'll balance itself out quickly, though. If you're exercising you probably won't see it at all. And if you exercise your abilities will skyrocket once your lungs are cleared.

I've quit for months and started again several times. It's hard when you're bored or in a social setting where everyone smokes. But keep at it. The more times you try, the more likely you are to succeed.

Good luck!

Vaping got me off the stink sticks, switched to vaping and slowly went down on nicotine level, now use zero nicotine and have done for a while. Now i'm hooked to fruity flavours :banghead:

Quitting is hard but not quitting is harder.

I am an old phart and smoked for 40 years. Quit 12 years ago and very glad I did.

My kid's mom died at 59 and I've watched so many relatives go early.

Stay quit no matter what.
