It’s been a year since I smoked my last cigarette. I know that I’m never going back.

1. Stay away from cigarettes, kids! Be cool like your Uncle Tim and stick to the candy fags.

2. If you’re addicted to nicotine and you live in the UK Try. The. NHS. Stop. Smoking. Service. It’s bloody brilliant.

3. Bite me, Philip Morris. And your little dog, too. That’s £1650 you’ll never see. Fear my hearty laughter. Mwahahaha. And so on.

4. ‘Zero’ is the most perfect of all numbers. There should be more of it.

OK, job done. Back to the grindstone.

PS – Yay, Tom: Government levels the playing field for Open Source … oh, and thanks again for the NHS, and for the smoke-free environments, just in case that didn’t come across. Now, can we maybe tidy up this torture nonsense? Please? I’d be able to enjoy all of these benefits a lot more if they didn’t come at the cost of some poor soul having their genitals mutilated. It’s putting me off my tea.

    Congratulations on reaching the 1 year milestone – it can't be easy. By the way, you wouldn't have £1,650 I could borrow, would you ?

    Go Tim. Will done, mate.

  4. Dave Cole says

    Congratulations!I agree about the NHS Stop Smoking service. They've clearly done their thinking – it helped me, at any rate.xD.

    "they've clearly done their thinking"I heartily agree. I don't want to give away any details for fear of undermining the course (some lessons have to be experienced to be fully appreciated), but they really know their onions.

    Well done mate, proud of you!
