Default An Anniversary Passed this Week

An Anniversary Passed this Week

An anniversary passed this week. I completely missed it, but May 1 marked an important event in my life. Tuesday, May 1, 1995 was the day I quit chewing tobacco...cold turkey. It was 12:00 noon, in the dinky little town of Ivanhoe, MN that I spit out my last Skoal Bandit. Seventeen years, one surgery, and a bunch of oral dysfunction later, I'm still paying for that habit.

Bottom line.

If you smoke or chew, then QUIT NOW!!!!

If you don't smoke or chew, DON'T START!!!!

Happy anniversary Val, and good message.

I smoked in the military and hope I never have to pay for that bad habit.

Good job. I smoked until about 1985. Quit cold turkey too. Threw about 1/2 pack away and never picked up another one. I had it so bad, I even dreamed about smoking. LOL. Best thing a person can do it get off it, smoke or chew.
