"drop" in this context would have to mean "use a crowbar to pry from my dead lifeless hands"

"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
Yep, deffinitely have more energy. Went for a walk around Pont du Gard with the kids, dogs and friends the other day. I was fair leaping about like a spring lamb!
Wonder how long I can keep it up for before I succombe to an indulgence. Its the drink. As soon s I have a few I have to light up. It really is impossible to do otherwise (so I havent had a drink for a week and a bit either). (Yeah, OK, I had food poisioning for 3 of those days and didnt feel like much of anything, which is a good way to kick the habit I gvuess.)
Really want to stop though. At my age you can really feel the fags taking a toll. Some years ago I cut back to only smoking once a week when I went to the pub, but there arent any decent pubs near me now so I started smoking at home too. Bad move, soon becomes a daily habit.)
I went through the same thing when I quit. I got tired of going outside in the bitter cold to smoke, and made sure I didn't smoke at home. It took a while to get out of the habit of smoking when your drink, but it's worth the effort for the general health of quitting. Of course, there are still times when I miss it, but overall it was worth the effort.
Try to go to bars you don't normally frequent - if you don't have the "habit" of smoking there it is a lot easier to resist. You will find your sense of smell and taste coming back (and you didn't even notice they had gone, did you?)
