Are you an ex-smoker? Or perhaps you are currently a smoker. @Wandering Bob mentioned in another thread that he has just given up. What are your experiences of trying to give it up? What are the good things about stopping the habit? And do you have any tips or tricks? I used to smoke heavily but eventually managed to stop quite a few years ago by using a nicotine replacement system (this was before the days of vaping). It took me a year on nicotine replacement to finally stop but two benefits became very obvious: the nasty cough I had disappeared within a week and suddenly, food tasted much better!
