    43 (and counting) Things you don't miss about the stinky analogues

    So it is pretty cold tonight here in Perth (by Perth people standards) and I am sitting in my little home office with the windows shut having a vape (and a whiskey).

    Now if I were still smoking analog's, my eyes would be watering from the smoke, and I probably would have had to open the window and let all the cold air in to let the stinky stuff out by now. However, instead I am vaping away inside at a nice clean desk, the cleanest it has been for years.

    Then I got to thinking about all of the benefits of not being on the analogs and thought I'd post this to maybe help some other newbies see there is light at the end of the tunnel.

    So here's the 10 things I don't miss about the stinky analogues (no particular order) , post up yours

    1. Setting the bed on fire
    2. Burning holes in clothes and other things that shouldn't have holes burnt in them.
    3. Smelling like crap.
    4. Having to add salt to everything just to be able to taste something
    5. Not being able to smell
    6. Stinking my office out and making it uninviting for visitiors
    7. Having employees exposed to my secondhand smoke
    8. Smoking near my dog and exposing her to second hand smoke
    9. Spending shitloads of money at the indian supermarket to buy smokes.
    10. Coughing my ring up each morning.

    12. Have to cue at the only checkout at the supermarket that you can buy smokes at, it always has the longest line.

    13. Checking the pockets of CMB's shorts before washing them and finding old butts

    27. That little waft of smoke that occasionally gets in your eye and stings like buggery (no matter how "experienced" at smoking you are).

    28. When the filter gets stuck to your lip, you take a drag and go to pull it out and your fingers slide down the edge, knock the hot bit off and burn f$&k out of your fingers.
