Smile I'm giving up smoking.

Hey everyone.

I've decided I need to quit smoking. I've been a consistent smoker since a very young age and it's had a noticable effect on my health and also my pocket book. Yesterday was my official quit date. I smoked up the last of my cigarettes on Friday and made it the whole day yesterday without. The only problem is, I still have a ton of other tobacco products sitting here temtping the hell out of me. I'll be giving the hookah tobacco to a coworker and tossing everything else in the bin.

As for Hookah Pro, I love this place and the people that make it great. I will need to take an extended break from logging in here and will quite likely be gone for good.

I would like to thank you all for the knowledge, friendship and good times.

Take it easy, live well.

-Dan-

Good luck Dee! Quitting cigs is probably one of the best decisions you can make for yourself. It's gonna be a rough ride, but you can do it! Once again good luck man, and good life.

It's been a pleasure my friend. Best of luck and best of health to you.

If you have anything interesting you may consider selling some of your collection off to make some of that money back.

I may offer some of my stuff for sale here, but I want to give a friend of mine first dibs.

I would like to make it clear that my main concern is getting off cigarettes. In fact getting into hookah was at least partially an attempt to curb my cigarette habit, which it did, for awhile! Fact is, it's two different methods and one cannot replace the other, at least not for me.

Thanks for all the support guys and gals, much appreciated!

I also thought smoking the hookah would ween me off of cigarettes. It doesn't work that way though. I now do both. I think you are making a wise decision on getting off of tobacco completely. Maybe later after you're good and done with cigs you can pick up a hookah again. I wish I could do what you are doing, but I am not ready yet. I know cigarettes are going to eventually kill me.

Best of luck in your travels good sir. You have taught me a lot about what we do, indirectly, but your videos will live on, and teach many more after me. I hope you live a better life after this decision.
