Hail Satan!


I’m fairly new (you may assume the standard “…but I’ve lurked for a long time” disclaimer), and we’ve never met or interacted before.

Further, a thread on this general topic has already been established. So this one’s just a branch off that—sort of a “thread-lite”, being less filling and with fewer calories:

This is just an opportunity to express my sincere admiration. To you, and to others who have become non-smokers.

I know how difficult that is, because I haven’t been able to do it yet. And I am awed by those who have.

Please lift your hand off the keyboard, reach behind one shoulder and pat yourself on the back for me. Because you and all the others are an inspiration.

Who is this guy Satan?

Satan resorts to sockpuppets. What is this board coming to?

I guess he can be forgiven … nicotine-fit induced delusions and so forth.


Cold-turkey nonsmoker for 2.5 years now. It CAN be done!

Aw, well thanks! Gee, now I BETTER not fall off the wagon… Boy, would I look stupid!!
