RE: Former Smokers-Have You Had The Urge...

Smoking is an addiction. It makes chemical changes to receptors in your brain.

Just because you quit doesn't mean the changes reverse themselves. It's normal to get cravings many years after you have given up.

RE: Steve Fossett Abandons Manston - Heads To Hurn

Apparently that led to a build-up of ice on the windscreen which didn't help matters, but he got into BOH safely enough and the record is his. It'll take some breaking if anyone is mad enough to attempt it!

From elsewhere...he's headed into BOH and has declared some form of emergency. Best wishes to him.

His problems with going to Manston relate to icing.

I am now doing traditional activities here, known as finding excuses not to do stuff but instead sit in front of the TV all day
