  1. Hi I'm Marty and I'm live in Southside VA. I put down the Marlboro's last year and couldn't stand it anymore. I had to smoke something. So I bought a King Kooker smoker. I've had it for a couple of weeks now and so far so good. I've done a some Baby Backs and a Pork shoulder. I wish I'd done this years ago. I didn't realize I could do something that could turn out so good. I'm completely new to this and the 2 sucesses I've had so far I credit this forum. So thank you.[​IMG]

    I just bought my first smoker and made my first post a little bit ago. Like you I quit smoking cigarettes 6 weeks ago. I'm 62 and have been smoking since I was 13. I quit when the Dr told me I had a cancerous tumor in my Right lung. I just got out of surgery 4 weeks ago and the Lord was with me because the Dr said they had to remove 40% of my right lung but they checked my entire body and it had not spread anywhere so I don't even need any Chemo although they will do testing every 6 months for several years. Dr said I was one of the luckest he had ever seen because almost always it has spread when they find it and he suggested, with my luck, I go out and buy a loterry ticket.

    I have said I won't be one of those past smokers that preach to others and I'm not preaching. I can just guarantee you, smoking a cigarette, darn sure isn't worth what I'm going through and I'm one of the very lucky ones. Congrats on quiting.

    Welcome to something much more addicting than cigarettes!
  20. Thanks so much for the warm welcome. MLS that is great news[​IMG] . I mostly quit because of my wifes health problems. I figured she couldn't quit unless I did too. I put them down no problem but I must of made up for it with food, I guess. I've put on quite a bit of weight since then. I'm now trying to give up sodas and all the sugary drinks. I gotta make up for all this great BBQ i'm going to enjoy. I have to agree about the addictiveness. I'm going to do the brisket early in the morning and I'm already thinking about what I'm going to smoke next.
