The one tangible item that you couldn't live without, what would it be.

Me: My beer fridge. Couldn't live without cold beer

I'm mid way through my quit at the moment. One morning after a big night out I coughed up some black sh!t, so yeah, I'm like "that's it, I'm quitting cause that's just wrong"

I am quite on edge though.

Smoking tobacco is an amazing drug delivery delivery system. Its very addictive, perhaps the most addictive substance that humans use. Its hard to quit. Best of luck, and warn all the people around you so they know why you are biting their heads off.....

yer already done that. I'm through the thick of it, just gotta fight the urges when drinking and the impulse buying at the supermarket. I picked the perfect time to quit too. In aus we just had a tobacco tax reform, 20cents extra per cig or something. A 30 pack is just under 20 AUD. Money grab by the government, but still atleast they are fixing two problems, the health system and the countries debt...

Oh yes. Mine cost me 23 AUD yesterday. I have tried all those patches and gums but the effect lasts til you have them on and back to basics again. It's the will to quit that matters.

Back OT:
To the OP: what do you mean one thing? One thing at all? or do you mean one thing after you have the fundamental requirements for human life, which are water, food, shelter and sex?

Its kind of pointless to ask without making sure you have at least the first three. Humans die quickly without water, typically in days. They can go maybe a month without food. Shelter is pretty important unless you live somewhere like San Diego that has wonderful weather all the time.

I've been a computer programmer for four decades, so without a computer, I'd be very lost. But if I had to lose computers, I'd have to have books. Lots of books.

Well to be honest I thought the obvious wouldn't needed to be stated. Basics of life are somewhat pointless to mention with this question. I'll restate to clarify:

"What is the one thing you couldn't live without; not including the basics for sustaining life."

So much for "tangible", I guess.

If you were unbelievably hot and had no recordable IQ I would applaud you too,
1/ because your beautiful and that's aOK in my books and,
2/ you coherently communicated with another human, once again impressive.

Unfortunately your on a programmers forum, we know difference

Nothin' wrong with some humour though ;)

Rule of threes: 3 minutes without air, 3 days without water, 3 weeks without food. There are deviations, of course, but these are general estimates for how long a person can survive without each.

One thing for me would be my glasses. I am very near-sighted, so without my glasses I wouldn't ever see anything further than 5 feet from me!
