It's a stressful job.

I'm fat and I dip and drink. It helps me get through the day and something to look forward to when I get home.

Most Mechanics and Plummers also smoke.

Me I just enjoy a few cold ones in the afternoon.

I really don't plan on living forever, and at 50 Im honestly surprised I made it this far. But its been a fun ride, although crazy at times!

Yes it is a stressful job at times. I do need something to help me out. As of now I just drink a extra large coffee in the morning. So smoking and chewing tobacco and help calm and relieve stress?

Did you quit or move to vaping? I'm vaping, cigarette free since December 13th. Slowly lowering my nicotine levels and plan on dropping vaping all together in a few months.

Yes.

A nice fat pinch of Cope Southern blend in my lip calms me down immensely.

I got in to vaping and have never smoked a cigarette in my life. Sure does make you smell better then cigarette smoke at the end of the day.
