I confess to smoking a pipe once every other day. My uncle gave me a pipe when I turned 18 to "keep up the tradition" of male smokers in the family. I've smoked off and on--mostly off--ever since, and always outdoors. I figure, at my age, it's not going to hurt me. My doctor agrees.

Thomas, I have a 500 gallon propane tank. A winter fill-up cost me $2.32/gal. The tank took in 221 gallons. They never totally fill it up--usually 70% full. I like the heat propane produces. Unlike #2 fuel oil, it doesn't have an odor. Do I save money, you ask?  Yes and no. I save by heating my house with wood, perhaps at 80%. When I'm gone or before I wake up or when it's really, really cold, the propane furnace comes on. So I'm not saving money there.

You'd have to research whether propane is cheaper than electric heat. I just don't know. As long as I'm able, I'll continue to cut and burn wood. Not only am I saving big bucks (propane fill-up cost $572 including taxes and "hazmat" fee), but I enjoy the whole firewood experience, from cutting to burning.

I like it, Thomas!

Ha, I quit smoking about that long ago too, Plinius, & by the time I got cancer treatments over 12 years ago, I was very glad of it. Chemo affected my lungs, so if I were still a smoker, I doubt I'd still be here.

junkies are never nice. I stopped smoking some 25 years ago, I've even lost the craving, and I hate the smell.

After chemo treatments years ago, I cannot stand the smell of smoke so have to stay well away from it. The smokers here are also rude, so I don't want to be nearby anyway. Lucky I can scooter when the weather is better.

It's too bad you have to choose between standing out in the weather, breathing smoke, or making enemies.

Our bus shelters have signs for no smoking within 10 metres, but they get ignored, so yes, the non-smoker has to stand out in the weather.

I was researching about having a propane heater installed for upstairs as a back-up. I am curious what size propane tank do you have and do you save money using the propane gas? My area does not have a natural gas line so propane is the other option.

It feels icy here, because of stormy weather. In the bus stop shelters the smokers stand together out of the wind, desperately trying to get their poison before it blows away. Normal people stay out of the shelter, shivering.
