    Since when is that bad news for the smoker’s family when the smoker’s family doesn’t smoke?

    It’s all about Phil. He’s not thinking about his family, he’s only thinking about himself and his addiction.

    That’s entirely normal.

    What isn’t normal is all these ads on the comic page flashing on and off. I can’t even read the cartoons anymore. I may have to quit reading them all. This is a real pain.

    My mom smoked. She picked a day and quit. Never went back.

    I’m thinking it might be worth the $20 to go “pro” and not have to see any ads at all.

    Adblock Plus takes care of many of them. Until recently it took care of almost all of them. I wonder what changed?

    Dad smoked much of his life, but finally quit “cold turkey” like that. My mom quit when she got pregnant with her first (me).


    Thanks, mom.

    My wife quit after 45 years — it’ll be two years on Sept. 9. Thank God for Chantix!! Quitting still wasn’t easy, but that made it possible.

    Five years after my last cigarette I realized I was still telling people, “No thanks, I’m trying to quit.”


    That was thirty years ago, and I still haven’t touched one.

    26 years for me. I’ve had several friends plus my ole lady suffer from copd caused by smoking. Only through the grace of God was I able to quit when I did.

    Try using Google Chrome and getting the extension called “AdBlock.” I never get pop-ups anymore.

    night gaunt. to quote a certain wanna be a president from Texas, ‘oops!’
    I misread your comment yesterday (Lynn’s notes) assuming that it was YOUR comment . when it was mentioned:

    • ‘later as a cartoonist’*
      I ,as a cartoonist myself (albeit unpaid!) and being familiar with your comments, I wanted to see your work.
      never mind!

    my mom quit smoking after 50 years of smoking and she quit cold turkey, no pills, gum, or what ever, she just watched my step dads mom struggle with emphysema and die a slow painful death and she put them in the trash. Was a great day for the family.
