Smoking keeps your lungs clear of the pine tar from the forest fires.
I quit smoking 2 or 3 years ago. I am still chewing nicotine gum.

I have to go on the patch to kick the gum.

I tried the patch and the gum at the same time a bunch of years ago.

I'm here to tell you, do both at once and one cup of strong coffee will keep you going all week.

I've got a couple towers that I keep on a little cart beside my desk. It makes pulling them out for maintenance/upgrades so much easier, helps keep the carpet dust out of them.

BTW, my first post. Hello everyone.

Hi Rickb - Welcome to Seven Forums!

Your solution is a good one - keeps them out of the way until you need them and keeps them up off the floor at the same time.

I packed up nearly 4 years ago now using the patches and found it very easy, I had tried the lozenges but they were horrible so went to the Doctors on the Monday and got the patches free and I haven't smoked since and I don't miss it either which is a surprise seeing as I smoked for well over 40 years and that included roll-ups as well as shop bought.
