Hey 500ssman, do you have little trains running around your mombo poster in your basement?

And watch them while smoking a butt, with a chew in your lip, all while on the patch. LOL
There have been times where I do chew and smoke, just usually not at the same time. In fact today is one of those days, only because I'm trying to wein myself off chew with cigarettes.

Quitting chew is so hard. There's six times the nicotine in one tin as there is in a pack of butts.
Tell me about it <_< The only plus to quiting is that I get a wicked buzz for about 2 days after stopping the chew
