Ciggies taste downright disgusting as I used to have an odd one when vaping to remind me of what I was missing and the fact that it turned my stomach
The problem is and speaking from experience once you get used to the taste it becomes a nice taste and a very hard habit to break

Smoked since I was 13 now 50 and vaping about 3 years and whilst I was smoking the taste and sensation was fantastic but as you say it not until you make that decision that triggers the switch.Even the smell of stale cigarettes is vile and never noticed it whilst I was smoking or maybe just didn't want to.But that was when you had decided they were not good for you and were wanting to quit as i said earlier
I read somewhere about russian advice that drinking reduces any vaccine efficiency. I wish I could find the article but must of had a few at the time of reading it and with no internet history no clue of the link. So I asked my son who said it's not implausable. It could be related to the metabolism and how your body processes alcohol that could increase the rate the dose is 'flushed out/stays in the body' . I'd ask him to research this more for me but he's busy jabbing arms left right & centre ATM. So I may stay off the pop a few days either side.i do believe there is some truth in the don't drink when taking antibiotics advice as I think it reduces their efficiency.
As I pointed out in the OP, the article itself gave both sides of the story on the Covid-19 vaccination.I’m not sure where I read it but apparently it’s a myth that you need to avoid alcohol when on antibiotics too. It seems this info was given back in the day when 90% antibiotics were being prescribed for the treatment of STDs and was used as a way to reduce the risk of them having a drink, losing their inhibitions and sleeping around until the infection was gone.
1 & 2 below have already happened here as SWMBO and my parents have had theirs, i am down in eighth place.
When will I get a vaccine?
Vaccines are being given to the most vulnerable first. A list of nine high-priority groups - which covers about 32 million people including 90-99% of those most at risk of dying - is being followed:
1 - Residents in care homes for older adults and their carers
2 - 80-year-olds and over and frontline health and social care workers
3 - 75-year-olds and over
4 - 70-year-olds and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals
5 - 65-year-olds and over
6 - 16- to 64-year-olds with serious underlying health conditions
7 - 60-year-olds and over
8 - 55-year-olds and over
9 - 50-year-olds and over
All four nations of the UK follow these priorities, but decisions on the roll-out vary between England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland
NHS frontline staff, care home residents and workers, and the over 80s have been the first priority. Nearly half of over-80s in the UK have been vaccinated.

This is one of the most stupidest decisions ever. Only in the UK can we make such a decision. The government always think they know best. I can see the headlines now - how the everyone will need another vaccine because they ****** this up.The day after we got our first Pfizer jab the row started as to how long we can leave it before we have the 2nd jab!
ONLY the UK Government has moved the 2nd jab out to "within 12 weeks" whilst the rest of the world have either stuck with the Manufacturers target of "3 weeks" or moved it out to "within 6 weeks".
A comment from Pfizer said "We only tested the vaccine at three weeks separation." so how come Boris and his gang feel that they can move the 2nd jab out to 12 weeks?
I have to ask "Will it be worth the time, effort and money to go for the 2nd jab?"
Our own 2nd jab is booked for 11 weeks after the original one, but I'm beginning to wonder what useful (if any) purpose there will be to having it; bearing in mind that we have already attempted to give the first jab the best possible chance of producing antibodies by avoiding alcohol, eating a healthy diet etc.
It is. The problem is that there is no data obtained by Pfizer to say if/how effective the first vaccination would be after 6 weeks.I may be wrong but i thought the idea behind this was they only have a limited amount of people who can give the jab so if they were doing both it would slow down the amount of people getting protection from the first one, i would rather they gave the first jab to as many as they can and the fastest they can than give a lot less full protection and slowing down the first.
