    Stoptober 2014

    Anyone else been nagged and hounded by their mrs until they gave in decided to give this a go? I've lasted 33 hours and just caved in. Can't say the cigarette did a lot for me and I'm now wallowing in shame! Any ex-smokers got any tips that could help me? :'(
  2. Question Smokers & ex-smokers

    So, simple question. Why did you start, and if your an ex-smoker like me, why did you quit? I starte quite late (probably 19/20) mostly due to smoking something else that got mixed with tobacco, and whilst that drug wasn't addictive, the other one was and I was hooked. Gave up when I was 27...
  3. Ban smoking outdoors?

    Interesting article from the Beeb about the use of pub gardens now being used by smokers in the hot months, discouraging those who do not partake from sitting outside. It's being banned in some USA states and there are laws in place in Oz & NZ. Jersey seemingly looking at going that extra step...

    The simple joys (that probably only make sense when you're 50)

    It seems that the older I get, the keener I am to preserve what's still good about life in this battered island. An example ... went into a pub in Penzance earlier this evening to check out whether it would be a good place to see some World Cup action in approximately 11 weeks' time. I'd been...

    Quitting Smoking

    So i've just done the deed of snapping all my cigarettes to pieces because I just can't be bothered with it anymore. It is also one of my resolutions to quit, so I though sod it, i'll start early. I know I've said in the past that I will quit, but I really mean it this time. I'm fed up of it and...

    Question Smoking....do you or Don't you

    I was having a chat with a friend today about a further dramatic step in a decade-long campaign to curb the consumption of tobacco products by graphically depicting images on cigarette boxes. The pictures will include rotting teeth and lungs and throat cancer. The pictures will replace the...
  7. Air horn

    A SUFC steward today came to me and wanted to take away my 10 year old son`s air horn (apparently because it was too noisy). This steward's attitude reflected all that could be said in favour of being nothing but a jobs worth, he served no purpose than to frighten my son, really **** me off, and...

    Atmosphere Vrs Crewe

    Thought the atmosphere was 1/2 notches up on the Tramere game with the mob at the back of block V/W in the west being very vocal. They even treated me to "on a piece of string" which was funny :D Most impressive was when the the south stand /west stand thing got going around the time of the...
  9. Why the hell can't you smoke at the

    "GK said that some issues had arisen over smoking at the ground. He said that it was recently estimated that up to 350 people were flouting the ground rules by smoking at the back of the West stand. He said that smokers would be warned at the next home game and at the game after that, those...

    Is Smoking banned in This Pub?

    .... personally i'm in favour of the ban, though thought it would have been better to have a completley seperate area for smokers , nowhere near the bar for example? Any thoughts ?
  11. 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

    Just heard about this book that was published late last year - some strange choices and (IMHO) some glaring ommisions. That said, I own 293 of these and have heard a further 108 giving me a respectable total of 401. To be honest, dying would be a favourable option to hearing most of the others...
  12. Smoking at Roots hall.

    It will be very interesting to see what actually happens next year with this proposed smoking ban. I can see a good few people not even bothering to stick to the rule. Does that mean that they will be banned for life? If so how many people will suffer this fate. As a smoker i agree whole...
