The devastation of smoking

Someone quits smoking cigarettes and chooses to vape and your criticize whether it's healthier or not? Has to be some of the most idiotic thinking and comments I've seen in a long time. Lol thanks. I needed a good laugh.

The devastation of smoking

I will probably get some backlash but for any smokers that want to quit but don't have the motivation, try vaping. Yes your still feeding the nicotine addiction but removing hazardous chemicals.

Just like gum or patches, it's a healthier way and one step closer. You inhale it like a cigarette so it's instant. You feel it in your lungs. You get the same hand movement. The mental dependency is just as strong as the physical one. And since you choose what % of nicotine to buy, it allows you to lower it based on your needs and schedule. Haven't had a real cigarette in years. Went from 9% down to 3%. I can breathe and weirdly smell again.

I know it's the cool thing to do now but it's a great tool to kick cigarettes and work on kicking nicotine all together.

Anyone has any questions about them just hit me up.

Truck gear

Ill expand on this a lil... say i get a truck with no factory Ant. whats a good one to grab?

I'm no expert but unless you're getting an over powered radio you don't need anything fancy like those metal antennas. Those are for high wattage. I think the most important thing is that its height is as high as the truck to eliminate as much interference. I would just get a basic fire stick and the length of the whip determines on what truck you get.

A stock radio, with a stock antennae will work. You just might get only half a mile. I had my radio tuned and with the larger whip can pull in about 4 miles. That's all I want but you can always get bigger stronger systems.

Truck gear

I have the cobra 29 LCD and a plantronics earpiece for hands free. I never liked the over the head style for bluetooth. Depending on the truck you get, you might need to invest in an antenna for the trucks cb. I put a 7 ft whip on mine to reach above the cab. Increased a couple miles when I did that.

Bankin miles seems like a blur

So are you running full 11 hours then resets or running on recaps? Just curious how you manage to pull that many miles. Either way, congrats. I'm glad your proud of yourself and the accomplishment. It shows you take pride!

Moving on...

Lol! Yes, I Iove moving at 68mph. But to be honest I usually cruise at 66. I thought I was the only us xpress driver on this site. Are you OTR or dedicated?

I'm on the walmart tour. I'm not sure what to consider it. It's not the dedicated walmart, I did that and really despised it. I pickup 3rd party and drop at walmart dc across the country. I consider it otr.

I was otr and took off a few months to move from MI to TN. Wasn't planning on coming back to usx but they offered me this walmart tour. 52 cpm, minimum pay of 2400 miles and 75% drop n hook. Now I'm loving working here because of the account.

As a current USX driver I'm sad to see you go but wish you the best. It's refreshing to read about some one resigning with class and style.

Don't get mad when those red trucks pass you doing 64 mph. :)
