When I saw a movie or anything in tv and they were smoking - I reached out for my packet too. Without thinking. I did get at little fat when I stopped smoking

The media can never be trusted - they do what they want and I don't find the serious. The same here and I get sometimes so angry

Our news here is so slanted!  Some people lost their entire homes but the media choose to waste a lot of air time showing the little bit of mud damage that Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres had.  Oprah's $165 million dollar home got splattered with some mud.   Ellen only has a $45 million estate but the news went on and on about these two people losing plants in their yards, etc while others were trapped inside of their homes, terrified that they wouldn't be saved.

The one scene with the car floating down the street in a sea of mud was beyond belief!  I'm so glad I live in an area that's safe from all of Mother Nature's PMS tantrums! :yes01:

I'm with Heike there.  For as long as I've been creating graphics, masks just never sunk in, other than using masks as picture frames.

When I  stopped smoking, they had gone up to $1.25 for a pack of 20 cigarettes.  I was smoking 3 packs per day!  Many of them just sat in an ashtray and burned up and I would immediately light up another one.  That was over $25 per week.  I finally realized that it was just taking the money out of my purse and lighting a match to it.  I don't know what they cost these days but I hear it's VERY expensive.

I remember when my mother got tired of rolling her own cigarettes way back in the 50's, they were about 17 cents per pack.  When they got up to 22 cents per pack, they packaged them with 3 pennies inside the cellophane so you would get change back when you put a quarter into the machine.

It's interesting watching a movie today compared to one from 30 years ago.  It seems that EVERYONE smoked in the older movies. In my photo albums, I have a cigarette in my hand in almost every photo.  it was the thing to do.  Today, you NEVER see that happen, not on TV either.  When I watch some of the old Dean Martin re-runs, there he is with a cigarette in one hand and a drink in the other. 

I cannot understand why California legalized that pot. It stinks to high heaven... nasty stuff.  On the other hand, the Federal government is coming down on some of them pretty hard.. and I'm all for that!   About the only "smoke" I like is the smell from a good pipe tobacco.  That usually has such a nice aroma.  Don't see men using them anymore either.

Wow, that was a lot of cigarettes Majse. You must be mega wealthy since giving it up!  :laugh1:  :stars:

That's what I thought when I gave up smoking but the money went on something else. However, I do feel much healthier (I think! lol) and that was the main reason for giving it up!

I was a heavy smoker too - about 44-46 cigarettes every day. I couldn't wake up before I had smoked at least 3 cigarettes. And like you - I could start right away. So all or nothing for me  :yes03:
