    Is that because you’ve managed to stop smoking?? If so, very well done. I know how hard that will have been because the wife went through that 4 years ago. She vapes for England these days, but that is so much better less harmful for her.

    Her COPD has improved over the years and she has seen some 10% improvements some years when she has her Spirometry tests.

    Hope it lasts – keep up the good work!!👍👍👍

    Well done John. The last fag I had was the one before my heart attack, thankfully it wasn’t my last fag ever.

    Well done John!

    I have posted here before about my own struggle against a 300+ a week addiction, although it was 42 years ago I still remember that battle. I have had too many close relatives and good friends die from lung cancer to believe that it would not have got to me too. The key for me was a smoking workmate who tormented me daily and kept offering me a ciggy, saying that I would never give them up. He didn’t know me well enough to know that if someone tells me I can’t do something, I will give 100% to doing it.

    Within a few weeks food and drink tasted better and my then GF told me I no longer tasted like an old ashtray.

    Patches and lozenges were my method, I don’t think I could have done cold turkey. I don’t miss it at all but also have no issues with people still smoking around me – outside. I’m not sure I could deal with a smokey pub like they used to be.

    The wife says the same. She thought that so long as she was doing what she wanted ( vaping ) she didn’t care about the smokers, and it wouldn’t matter being around smokers and smoke, however, when we went to see Jasper Carrott last month during the interval we nipped outside. I found that whereas I didn’t mind being among the vapers, she found that the smoke from the smokers was unpleasant ( probably due to the concentration ) and much to my relief we moved away from that pack. Others did too and you could see the different cliques with a little separation between them.

    She says that so long as she’s vaping she doesn’t miss smoking, similar to when she swapped sugar for artificial sweeteners she didn’t drink a coffee and wonder where the sugar was.

    Yes, he certainly is – I was transported back 20 years!! Proper situational humour – recounting events/stories with hilarious outcomes and just plain hilarious all round.

    My father went ‘cold turkey’. He had gall bladder problems that escalated rapidly and seriously to pancreatitis. After six weeks in intensive care, with a GP saying that no one of his age recovers, he did recover and organised an operation to start the repair work. He never smoked again in his remaining 20 years.

    Drastic, but it worked for him.

    Is he still telling the one about insurance.

    Nice one Richard, at least it shows it helps.

    John, well done on quiting.

    It was easy for me, I was down to about 20% lung function and rushed into hospital. Asthma was diagnosed and a week in hospital on nebulisers.

    I was told that if I didn’t quit I’d be dead within 10 years. That’s a good reason to quit.

    Cold turkey and no issues.

    I now have lungs comparable to a semi professional athlete.

    Yes – he’s updated the claims forms to include modern technology like SatNavs and Mobiles.

    That was me Richard: had 13 months trying to get the NHS to remove my GB, wound up with malaria-like convulsions that were so bad I had to sleep in the spare bedroom to give my SWMBO some rest. When they scanned and saw it was  chock full of tiny stones, (I saw the pics) they removed it PDQ. Next I had Prostate bleed, scans found pancreatic cancer. Out came the Pancreas tail, spleen and lymph glands. I wondered why I was being given express tests and scans: still am treated quickly, I get appointments in jig time now. I believe it all stems from their realisation that somebody should have taken out my GB well before 13 months. Someone let drop a spherical object.

    As for smoking: I have good lung capacity and good heart function, which has helped with everything else I have been through, I believe. You have to keep the engine going and retain function in the biological computer that controls it all.

    I still like Bill Cosby’s Motor Insurance claim: “I was driving along, minding my own business, when a tree jumped out and bit my car!”

    Yes, a DOM, but what a funny guy in his heyday.

    …….but what a funny guy in his heyday.

    Totally BLUE but I really liked Richard Pryor in his heyday. “Was It Something I Said” was brilliant, irreverent, pornographic Black humour. But a Black man taking the p*ss out of black idiosyncrasies ( because he was one of the only ones that could!! ).

    Only example I could repeat here –

    Two black males crossing a bridge in New York get caught short and decide to take a leak over the side.

    First male – ” Damn, this waters cold!!!”

    Second Male – ” Aha – and deep too!!!”

    An absolutely unpredictable comedy genius, Robin (had to be a) Williams:

    The human reproductive organs:

    I have literally fallen from a settee in tears of laughter watching one of his shows on TV. He wasn’t really crazy, just a Williams. (I say that from personal experience of my own family and my own history)

    What a loss, as a comedian and an actor. As a comedian, the audience never knew what he would say next. As an actor, I read once that one director said that he never knew what was going to happen on set from one day to another.
