  1. How to obtain a Thai driving licence

    There's a whole pinned topic on getting a Thai licence at the top of the page.
  2. I want/need to stop smoking.

    Believe me, I tried many, many times to quit, but always sneaking the odd one or two, still pretending I was quitting, but ending up back on them again. Eventually I was 100% committed, and once I had really made up my mind it wasn't so bad. Never been tempted to have the "just one" in 5 years.
  3. I wonder what the attraction is at the Tesco carpark?
  4. I want/need to stop smoking.

    Stopped 5 years ago after a packet a day for nearly 50 years. I tried patches, gum, cutting back etc, but there was only one successful way for me and that's cold turkey. Just made up my mind to quit and never had another smoke.
  5. Australian Aged Pension

    No, not free. It costs $18 to transfer a max of $10,000, but I only need to do it twice a year.
  6. Mods, please close this post. I have received a few sensible replies, but the topic is now being sabotaged by idiots.
  7. You're right, but I'm finding I have less and less tolerance for the idiots.. Mods, if you're watching please close this post.
  8. right on the money This is a fact is it? Read the post before you join in with stupid comments.
  9. I know who's the imbecile, someone who just joins and starts throwing around prejudicial, ill-informed opinions. Hopefully the mods will make short work of you.
  10. You joined to make that valuable contribution?
  11. Australian Aged Pension

    I have my pension paid into an Aussie bank, I just do an online transfer when necessary to my Thai bank, then I withdraw from local ATM's using the Thai bank's cash card, no fees.
  12. Not sure they would bother to send someone from Australia to Thailand to check up on my living arrangements.
  13. I don't have a defacto, I have a "carer".
  14. How long do you think acquiring Aussie citizenship for a Thai is going to take? Sorry, just not a practical solution.
