    I see; okay, Sir! yes, I guess it's always possible Ms. D smoked for a while but never told you.

    Sounds like Ms. D. has been sensible for so many years. (It used to be that huge numbers of women smoked several decades back.)

    I'm grateful to the Lord, that he have taken my hunger and thirst from my desire of smoking for years, because I did ask for that deliverance.

    It's good to know that people can quit; although I don't believe in 'beating up' on people who do still smoke.

    But that would be one way to get them to quit Just kidding.

    On the other hand, where there's smoke there's fire.:D

    @firstthings1st.
    PS: You used the phrase hunger and thirst; I guess that Ms. D just never hungered and thirsted for the cigarettes, that's all. Some ppl don't; some ppl certainly do.

    PS: So has dh managed to become nicotine free with his vaping yet? I think it was his aim, right?

    Years ago the whole smoking thing was vastly different.

    Great he achieved the aim that you said he was pressing for! :)

    Years ago, smoking cigarettes was something family and friends and work colleagues just did automatically, without a second thought.

    Hi @farouk ...
    I was reading along and realized this is an old thread.
    Happy for all those who were able to quit.
    For those who didn't...keep trying!
    (I never started. Tried once. It made me SICK!!!)

    You clearly didn't get into inhaling (ask @Acolyte, @Heart2Soul , etc.), so not pursuing it obviously made sense!

    I THINK I inhaled !
    I THINK that was the problem!
    I was about 11 years old.
    One of my friends told me I had to GET USED TO IT!

    Well, at 11 it would take a while to learn to inhale properly! (Was your friend that said that about 11 also...?))
