The Ross Sisters - Solid Potato Salad (epic)

"in the 1940s the term "solid" was a young hipster's term for "excellent" or something to that effect."


It's the groovy movie salad Jack!

I'd be remiss if I didn't also include Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking (the video).

Edit: 7/09/2014 The video link in this post is now "Private"/broken. Please use the other links/videos.

If you are currently a smoker, you're assured it's ok to light up while watching the movie, or reading the book.

If you want to stop, commit to that, and then watch this video and be done with smoking. I watched it several times, and I was reading the books, but after deciding this made perfect sense and that I wanted I stop, I just stopped and it was a beautiful thing. If you can't promise yourself that you'll stop, watch it anyway. I watched it several times as I firmed my resolve and took the plunge.

I posted some other info here.

I also read that it worked for Pink

I was looking at Carr's Wikipedia page and I noticed that. After googling I saw this.

The 'Blow Me (One Last Kiss)' superstar told Shape magazine that she was smoking a pack per day by just 13-years-old so it was a tough addiction to let go of, but she found support in a book that proved very effective for her:

"I quit when I got pregnant by reading Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking. That really worked for me. (And now) Willow makes me not want to (smoke). And besides, unlike before, cigarettes smell repulsive to me."

I quit smoking on April 4, 2011.

I used Allen Carr's "The Easy Way to Stop Smoking".

Border's had a nice compilation of some of the best quotes from that book in a nice pocket sized paperback that I carry around and which was very helpful and inspirational.

Great free videos that were also helpful here.

Lol, I quickly figured out that I'd feel at a loss when walking past the spot I'd stash my cigarettes when at home. I'd have a cup of coffee in my hand and feel like I was forgetting something.

I've had several nightmares about smoking. Supposedly this is ok/"a good thing".

Allen Carr’s 7 Tips To Stay Quit

Allen Carr’s Easy Way to Quit Smoking

If you follow these simple instructions, you cannot fail.

1 Make a solemn vow that you will never, ever, smoke, chew or suck anything that contains
nicotine, and stick to your vow.

2 Get this clear in your mind: there is absolutely nothing to give up. By that I don't mean simply that
you will be better off as a non-smoker (you've known that all your life); nor do I mean that although
there is no rational reason why you smoke, you must get some form of pleasure or crutch from it or
you wouldn't do it. What I mean is, there is no genuine pleasure or crutch in smoking. It is just an
illusion, like banging your head against a wall to make it pleasant when you stop,

3 There is no such thing as a confirmed smoker. You are just one of the millions who have fallen for
this subtle trap. Like millions of other ex-smokers who once thought they couldn't escape, you have

4 If at any time in your life you were to weigh up the pros and cons of smoking, the conclusion would
always be, a dozen times over, 'Stop doing it. You are a fool.' Nothing will ever change that. It always
has been that way, and it always will be. Having made what you know to be the correct decision, don't
ever torture yourself by doubting it.

5 Don't try not to think about smoking or worry that you are thinking about it constantly. But
whenever you do think about it –whether it be today, tomorrow or the rest of your life think,

6 DO NOT use any form of substitute.
DO NOT keep your own cigarettes.
DO NOT avoid other smokers.
DO NOT change your lifestyle in any way purely because you've stopped smoking.
If you follow the above instructions, you will soon experience the moment of revelation. But:

7 Don't wait for that moment to come. Just get on with your life. Enjoy the highs and cope with the
lows. You will find that in no time at all the moment will arrive.
