    Right, it was 9 a tad more than 10 hours ago.



    I did consider smoking some of the green stuff earlier but decided not to.

    Good for you! I quit 3 1/2 years ago after 40 years of smoking and wish I had done it long ago. I don't miss cigarettes at all but do miss a good cigar. Afraid if I had one I'd backslide so I'll do without.

    April 3, 2003 for me, after 22 years and a 2-3 pk a day habit.

    Took me about 5-6 years to buy a cigar, didn't fuel the fire after I did though, I enjoy a half a dozen a year. No worries about picking up the habit again.
    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.

    BTW, congrats on the quit!

    Congrats on the year... Quit 5-6 years ago couldn't tell ya when. Will pick up a cigar while fishing, camping, or tailgating but it has never swayed me back to the other habit.
    God is great... Beer is good... And people are crazy!
