    After 33 years at a pack a day plus, I am very happy and pleased to announce I have finally KICKED THE HABIT!! I am smoke free now for over 60 days.

    I recall many years ago asking my Vet about possible impact on my dogs (and cats) health in regards to my smoking. To my surprised he kinda passed it off no big deal really, they're pretty much low to ground and your smoke is up in the air so not as bad one would assume. Well, I have to say I disagree. You can go behind closed doors all you want, you know the smoke travels and lingers and I am confident, my pets are thankful and appreciate the fact that dad is not smoking anymore!

    Congratulations! That's awesome! :hail:

    I'm no vet, but I'd have to disagree too. I mean, obviously the dogs can at least smell the smoke, and that's got to be unplesant in itself.

    My boss thinks all smokers are inherently evil, and anytime a dog bites someone the first thing she asks is if that person is a smoker. Like the dog that bit the reporter on live TV; obviously the reporter must be a smoker. :rolleyes:
