Thanx EVERYONE for the kind words and encouragement. :thumb I also probably a a few pounds added on but its tough to tell whether its from the cruise food or not. :grin For those of U that have quit a BIG congrats and for those of U in the midst of an effort to quit my BEST regards as it NOT an east task unless the mind is set to it. After 30+ years its an adjustment that will be ongoing but I am sure my chore was a bit easier since I was never a HEAVY smoker and usually only smoked about 1/2 a pack a day of the ultra light variety menthols. Those peppermint and wintermint Altoids do tend to give me my quiet menthol fix but my drumming of a pencil on the desk is probably a bit more annoying for those in my work environment. :grin .
