Howdy all,
I wanted to just drop a line and thank everyone for the great info found on this board.  I am getting my first Kindle today and have been waiting all morning (5:00am) for Fedex.  I recently quit smoking after 27 years and my wife, of 26 years, gave me the choice of either a PS3 or a Kindle2.  I think I made the right choice, I guess I am getting too old to play games, or so I am told.

Greetings and Welcome, BarryJ! I don't know about the to old to play games, but I think the Kindle is a great choice. If you have not done so, check out the Book Corner.

You will find ideas for cheap and free reads, and recommendations from other board members. Also Book Klubs you might wish to participate in. Congrats on the new Kindle!

Hi Barry - CONGRATULATIONS!  What you are doing is tough - however, spending time here and reading on your kindle will definitely occupy your time.  We are obsessive about our kindles here and are NOT enablers (right folks  ::) )

Welcome to the wonderful world of Kindleboards  :)

I wish I could tell you an easy way to stop, but, what works for one may not work for another. I tried everything, gum, patches (never could keep those lit), prescriptions all of them. What worked for me was just stop buying them, Spent the first 2 days scrubbing my office walls and cleaning everything, with supervision of my wife. It has been almost a month now and at times I still catch myself reaching into my shirt pocket or looking in my desk for my long lost friend.
Thanks everyone for the welcome and I have and will be checking out the rest of the Boards.

Welcome Barry! Congrats on quitting smoking, what an accomplishment! You will love your Kindle! I have been trying to get my husband to quit smoking for 16 years with no success. Love the avatar, thought it was on my computer screen.  :D
