When I was first dating Mrs Roe she asked if I smoke after sex. I told her I never looked.

Amy Heeter 6 years, 5 months ago

Other. I smoke for the safety of all mankind

kthxbi 6 years, 5 months ago

Exactly. The safety of all is in jeopardy when I have not had a cigarette in about 3 days.

I wish that pork ribs were health food & cigarette smoke was the ethereal elixer of eternal bliss.
Skag, pot, speed, lsd, mescaline, cocaine, heroin & booze. My experience is that none of them are as enticing as nicotine. For the record, I do not currently smoke unless you have time-stamped visual evidence.

Quit the ciggie butts about 1992 I'd guess. They were closing in on a dollar a pack, whenever that was. The first packs I ever bought were 35 cents. I don't know why I ever smoked, honestly. Hey, we bagged 57 pheasants in NW Kansas with 14 hunters. Bird numbers are less than half of what they were year ago. Lots of cover though. So it goes.

In keeping with the seasonal Thanksgiving theme, the best way to quit is cold turkey. If you're gonna save money by not buying smokes, don't blow it on worthless quitting aids for cryin' out loud. Just quit & suffer through it. Three weeks & you are free. That's three weeks from your last smoke, so don't cheat cuz the clock starts over. It ain't that hard. Do it.

Ok, It's sorta hard. I like Winstons. Or those Marlboro 72,s. They're pretty good. My favorite brands are the OP's. ( Other Peoples') I had no shame. If you smoked I would bum from you until they were gone. Purely a selfless & protective reflex to save you from temptation.

It's easy to remember the temp; it's 10 degrees for every ounce in a tall-boy or Roe's age divided by one.

riverdrifter 6 years, 5 months ago

160 degrees. Smoke with apple chips. Ambient air temp makes a big difference in how long you have to smoke. You do not need constant smoke with LP. To do so will make the meat bitter. Low temp, 170, low smoke. Make a paste with common old yellow mustard & apple pie spice: smear it on, let sit for an hour, then smoke. I'd say 3 hours. Smoke chips early & late. That's how I roll.

Wow! My 3 pack per day habit in 1970 would now be costing $5400 per year . . . Glad I quit when they were 35 cents/pack

RoeDapple 6 years, 5 months ago

Not to mention they probably would have killed me by now . . .

budwhysir 6 years, 5 months ago

I would say that people smoke simply because they cant say they dont smoke. Just like people that dont smoke cant say they smoke.

Reuben Turner 6 years, 5 months ago

"Propano est gaso de diablo."

Bah! Humbug!

Armored_One 6 years, 5 months ago

I smoke because I want to. It's my conscious choice to opent eh pack, take a cigarette out, apply flame and inhale through the filter until the tobacco combusts.

Well, that and the occassional chuckle I get out of people that try and scold me for it.

The amusement increases when I ask them where do they think the lost revenue for the state from the sales taxes on tobacco products will come from if everyone quits smoking all at once.

I hear "That's not the point" so frequently I could almost set it to music.

Thank you. Please drive through.
