Truebrit: A Question

Hi TrueBrit: Have a question which could not possibly be any more off topic I'm curious how you and your countrymen/women feel about the Prince and Kate breaking up. To bring my question back to topic: is it gonna make people wanna smoke?

Re: Truebrit: A Question

Wow Trish, I was going to try to weave this question into a thread some how too! Thanks for asking! Too bad the relationship is over, I was up for seeing another royal wedding (Charles and Camilla's didn't count). BTW, I was still smoking when they got married.

Re: Truebrit: A Question

Maybe relaxing in the South of France again?

(To keep on topic, she's relaxing without a ciggy or a *** as they are called over there).

She's ignoring us. But this will not make me smoke again!

Re: Truebrit: A Question

Yes, she is. Do you suppose this is some kind of test....or maybe she's still got a burr 'cause we broke away from Great Britian

Naw, I think she's just lounging around in the South of France.... don't they have casinos there? Maybe she hit a big jackpot? I wonder if their casinos are as smokey as the ones in Las Vegas?

Re: Truebrit: A Question

Traveller: You must be a city person. Burr: a rough or *****ly envelope of a fruit b : a plant that bears burs. Around here, we say to an irritable person, "Hey...what's wrong....got a burr up your butt?" But.....we don't smoke when we say it......we just run like hell!

Re: Truebrit: A Question

Oh yea, I remember them as kids.... playing in the woods and getting those sticky things (round little balls with pointy things on em???) on our socks? Is that what a burr is?

When I was a kid, I didn't smoke... but I do remember riding bikes with my friend after she had stolen a cig from her mother.... we smoked it and then probably ate a pack of pepperment life savers each to get rid of the smell... and both my parents smoked.

Re: Truebrit: A Question

"sticky things (round little balls with pointy things on em???) on our socks? Is that what a burr is?" Yeppers....that is precisely what a burr is....and they're uncomfortable as all get out. I'm trying to think of a way to get smoking -- rather not smoking -- into this post, but I'm at a loss.

So...I'll say this: I'm not smoking and I'm lovin' it

Re: Truebrit: A Question

Welcome kat68 and congratulations on quitting smoking!!

You may want to copy and paste your reply above into your own brand new thread... see where it says "New Thread"? when you are looking at all the thread topics? You'll get a lot more replies that way. Not that we don't want to talk to you on this thread, but this one is a kind of joke thread.

Welcome again!!

Re: Truebrit: A Question

Trish, Traveller,
I'm posting so this will get bumped up so maybe True Brit will see it.
Ya'll are so funny. We need a thread like this to keep us sane!
If you've ever picked cuckle burrs off of yourself or a dog you'll never forget what they are! Or begger's lice either! (They stick to you like cuckle burr's do but they are flat and not as pointy-sticky.)
Do you think that she hasn't heard about the break up? She has been spending time in France lately. She wouldn't just ignore ya'll, would she?

Re: Truebrit: A Question

Hi Kat!
Welcome here!
I hope you find your quit experience on Chantix as satisfyingly an upgrade to wellbutrin that i did!
If your 'one of the lucky ones' you might have some 'doozy' dreams.
I know I get some weird ones, and some abnormally mundane ones. But I kind of look at it as adventures my normal life wouldn't provide.
And ya gotta wake up eventually.
Hoping you don't mind my bit of humor, but seriously want to welcome you.
We've all had some effects of one flavor or another, and you never know who is going to have your next answer. (or ask the next question you have an answer for!)
Best Regards,
DeadFish

It started with waking up from an awful dream of me drowning in a frozen swamp (yuk, ick and oh my gosh), once I was up all I wanted to do was cry. I felt so sad and couldn't figure out why. I would drift off into some other world, couldn't focus, and all I could think about was going back to bed locking the door and covering my head with the blanket. Once I realized it was time to take my chantix is when I realized "IT" must be the reason I am feeling like this so I started googling for info and found you all. After reading what everyone else has experienced I gotta say I'm fitting right in.
I am however very excited about quitting and eventually feeling much better. I would like to thank all of you for the time you spend on here talking about your personal experiences it really DOES help.
