I was reading another post on safety and it got me thinking about our current job. Due to new insurance regulations no smoking is permitted anywhere on site. So 'fess up guys, how many of you are smokers?

count me as a non-smoker

I smoke, drink coffee, cut-up (joke sometimes), and GET THE JOB DONE!


I have nothing like that on my general liability insurance.

I quit smoking 10 years and 23 days ago and never looked back. Nasty habit and my Help Wanted ads say "Non-smoking shop".

I quit booze 27 years ago when I found out I'm allergic to alcohol. Every time I drink, I break out in jail. Never looked back there, either.

What happens after you quit.


  • In 20 minutes your blood pressure will drop back down to normal.
  • In 8 hours the carbon monoxide (a toxic gas) levels in your blood stream will drop by half, and oxygen levels will return to normal.
  • In 48 hours your chance of having a heart attack will have decreased. All nicotine will have left your body. Your sense of taste and smell will return to a normal level.
  • In 72 hours your bronchial tubes will relax, and your energy levels will increase.
  • In 2 weeks your circulation will increase, and it will continue to improve for the next 10 weeks.
  • In three to nine months coughs, wheezing and breathing problems
    will dissipate as your lung capacity improves by 10%.
  • In 1 year your risk of having a heart attack will have dropped by half.
  • In 5 years your risk of having a stroke returns to that of a non-smoker.
  • In 10 years your risk of lung cancer will have returned to that of a non-smoker.
  • In 15 years your risk of heart attack will have returned to that of a non-smoker.
So, you have more immediate things to look forward to if you quit now besides just freaking out about not being able to smoke.
