    Proud to be a quitter

    Congratulations and well done to Manx National Hemorrhage on giving up smoking but there is really no need to become such a sanctimonious prick - bloody hell pretending to cough as you walk by a smoker? Just shows you to be a real pain in the arse. For the record I was a "professional” smoker for 50 years but haven’t smoked in four years and dont think there can be a case made for smoking. Enjoy your better health, extra wealth and greater life expectancy but leave others to make their own choices in life
