    Nothing sadder than teachers going out to their cars to smoke, on their breaks….

    When it became obvious that the law was coming that there was going to be no smoking in all high schools including the teachers’ lounge, I quit cold turkey at the stroke of midnight 1980. Best thing I ever did.

    Doctors and nurses going out to the parking lot to smoke is up there too. I went to a cardiologist 25 years ago that smoked. He was shocked I could smell it on him.

    I quit when I could no longer smoke on long plane flights. I actually got busted sneaking a smoke in a plane restroom and almost got in a lot of trouble.

    My father used to smoke 2 packs of Chesterfields a day. Then he had a heart attack and died, right in front of me (well, actually on the other side of the dining room table). Maybe that’s why I never started.

    We had a smoking lounge too. California politics I guess. Or was it just the 70’s? lol

    IT helped me to quit when I realized that the state of MI collects a bounty on each pack of smokes, took all of the Big Tobacco’s “settlement” money, and then passed laws affecting where and when I could use the product. PLUS, as a smoker, my health care should come out of the settlement money.

    I feel the same with doctors who still smoke. And two of my brothers.

    I quit when I was stationed in Hawaii… they wanted (in the late 90s) $7 for a pack… I decided I was too cheap to keep buying so I quit. Used McDonald’s straws to help cut the habit- I was more hooked on the action vs the nicotine.

    This is a big development! When/why did she quit? Seems Mr. Mallett took a pass on a really great comic opportunity. Volcanic eruptions from Mount Olsen during nicotine withdrawal? Coulda been pretty funny.

    several months of not being able to use her ‘smoking’ hand probably had something to do with it.

    I do recall a gag about the irony in her health improving because of the injury to her “smoking hand”. I thought maybe she’d just cut down. (Most smokers wouldn’t be deterred; ever notice how many smoke with “no hands”, letting their cigs dangle between their lips?)

    In any case, successfully quitting is a triumph that I would have thought might have been given more attention.
