    E-cigarettes not endorsed by American Lung Association

    I took my daughter to the store one day many years ago to give my wife a break and so I could buy a pack of cigarettes. My daughter asked me for a toy while we were walking up to the store, and I told her we didn't have the cash for it.

    Got to the checkout and I asked for smokes, and my daughter pipes up with "Oh, so you can afford cigarettes but not a toy, hrmmm?"

    Wife and I quit cold turkey shortly after that. It really put everything in perspective hearing a 4 year old set the record straight.

    Yeah, well, I still chew the gum, but at least I'm not sucking stuff into my lungs.

    I do miss my pipe collection though. Throwing my pipes out was quite traumatic. I still have one Turk's head meerschaum for old times' sake.

    I knew one man who quit decades ago. His daughter wouldn't hug him because she said he stank. He quit cold turkey and went through withdrawal symptoms. He said it was worth it. Goes to show the social element works both ways.

    Glad to read you kicked the habit. Interesting that it helped to move.

    I'm an ex-smoker who had to move to quit. That's not why I moved, but moving removed me from the associations that would remind me, "You used to light up here." During the transition time, I was able not to smoke at my new location but would lapse immediately on the drive back to my previous location.

    The nicotine pushers, once they get their hooks in you, do not give up without a fight. As far as I am concerned, "vaping" is just the cool new way of pushing one of the world's most addictive drugs.

    TiddlyWiki bookshelf

    Short follow-up: My tiddlywiki is completely unusable on my android device because of slowness. Another promising option is below.
