    I like innuendo Ray!

    My wife asked me to give her an example of an innuendo so I gave her one!

    Having started smoking in the 1960's as everybody seemed to do in those days.
    Working in the freight/shipping circles,cigs were easy to come across.
    I stopped 40 odd years ago, similar to as mentioned above. One fine day
    opened up the car to go to work and have a cig on the way. The car stank.!!
    Drove with the windows open and never lit up again. Stopping smoking is
    easy when you really want to do so. If you say I will stop,but still crave
    a cig, then you will carry on even after a break.When stopped,I noticed
    even years later in moments of stress,my hand still went to the jacket pocket
    that I used to keep the cigs in. Old habits take a long time to be forgotten.!!

    I always carried my cigarettes and lighter in my shirt pocket.

    Before leaving the house or my office I'd sub-consciously alwats tap my shirt pocket to make sure they were still there.

    Some 8 years after having given up smoking I will even today sometimes tap my pocket, and inwardly smile to myself . . .
