    I am not a slave to the wicked weed! My willpower is stronger than the siren call! I am tired of being known as the old dude who constantly has a pipe sticking out of his maw. This morning I went cold turkey. Success! It has been over five hours now, and am not feeling the least bit of temptation. Hey, where did I put that Savinelli?

    I quit cold turkey for years in solidarity with my late wife who quit a multi-pack cigarette habit on her third try; her final illness did not relate to smoking, at least according to current or earlier medical science. I resumed the pipe regularly when my current wife was in rehab after hip surgeries, to center in the evening after helping her. So many can come and go as needed or thought efficacious.

    I don't see anything wrong for quitting cold turkey, or hot turkey or turkey loaf etc. None of them appeal to me.

    I too quit cold turkey last night. It’ll probably last me another 20 minutes or so.

    A cold turkey sandwich with dressing, cranberry sauce and a touch of mayo..... YUM!!!

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    John, there's a sandwich shop here in Vegas called Capriotti's that has exactly what you describe. They call it the "Bobby" and it's their claim to fame.

    Because it makes it more difficult to pick up 20 yr old chicas!

    Just means you have to buy a sexier pipe.

    ....fair enough.

    I must agree with that. When I'm smoking a lovat stuffed full of my cow shit and iodine blend (Germain's Special Latakia Flake) it's obvious to everyone that I am the sexiest man on earth. If it wasn't for my bad language and bargepole I would get no peace from the opposite sex whatsoever.

    A pipe makes one unappealing to 20 year old women??

    Man, I need more pipes.

    Just go with the ones who have "daddy" issues. Then build on the reputation of a caring lover. That'll attract all kinds.

    Well, I'm obviously a babe magnet with or without a pipe in my mouth. But, I've never had the urge to quit smoking my pipes so I can't really relate to this thread. Besides, I'm spending too much of my time fighting off the women right now.

    I’m not interestedly in 20 year old girls at my age. I don’t mind 40-Year old ones though.

    I am glad we have a good admin and responsible moderators.

    Tobacco and alcohol are far more enjoyable than female attention. Pipes and bottles neither talk nor complain when they see you with another pipe or bottle.

    After two wives, several fiancées and various other relations, I think I may call it quits on women while I’m still STD free!
    Pipes are another matter, especially since I probably have enough tobacco stashed that it may qualify as a lifetime supply and I can enjoy it all without contributing to the crimes and misdemeanors of an unpredictable government.

    Them 20 year olds probably ain't as cracked up as they used to be. They'd probably be trying to get you to quit smoking, quit eating meat and start doing yoga and all that crazy talk.

    Yer not supposed to fall in love with them! They're like Missouri Meers, they're disposable. Damn! You want a rotation that you've carefully selected. They're really no different than your smoking tools. (I may have stepped over the line with that.)

    Some folks do better with simple written instructions.

    Once your photos are on a photo hosting site (such as Imgur.com; Postimage; Dropbox, etc. Photobucket), or on virtually any site, including this site's album such as eBay, Amazon, you-name-it, select the full sized image, then Control-click (Mac) or Right-click (Windows) on the image itself, then choose "copy image location" or similar words. Now paste that URL (the full web address, which should end in .jpg or .png) into the IMG box in the reply window of the thread you're posting to.

    The site's album is also a good choice for displaying photos, and the same method works for obtaining the image's URL for copying into the IMG box.

    There are other good illustrations and steps on how to post photos in the "Latest Discussions" box,

    If your tool is smoking, maybe you SHOULD take a break...

    Am I the only one that's extremely confused?

    I feel like it's two people who are arguing, but are on the same side, and just don't know it.

    What is going on???

    And I have my " self abasement". And the other night it was toxic. My mother in law set a couch cushion on fire down there. I made one old joke, and she tried to burn the house down....wtf...lol

    If you are going to quit, then quit and go away. No one is going to try and talk you out of it.
