Wow, congratulations man!

I quit cigs in 2009 and I concur that isa great decision. I'm contemplating stopping the booze too or drastically reducing my intake.

What else influenced you stopping drinking apart from cigs?

I stopped smoking in May this year. Best decision I have ever made. I won't quit booze, but in saying that I'm lucky to even have 2-3 beers per month. Hardly drink at all if ever.

IDK man... It's been loooong time...

I'm actually a little flu-ish right now and cannot stop... only reduce...

i quit smoking about 4 years ago. tried a few times before that and was unsuccessful. i finally got to a point where i HATED smoking. hated how it made me feel. hated that something as stupid as a cigarette could beat me. i noticed my breathing was changing. finally i got fed up and tossed my last 4 in the trash and that was it. i wouldn't even say it was that hard, but only because of my mental state

I can't go half a day without copenhagen. Wish I would've never picked up this nasty habit. Thinking of all the money that I spent on dip that I could've spent on motorcycle parts:/ oh well.

You're the rock star, although if you need a drummer after I get the casts off I'm down to jam.
