Quit, quit now....
I rather suspect the writer in his last words, 'Quit, quit now', may be
jokingly alluding to a certain phrase popular in the States (current in
anti-smoking campaigns?) Any clue?
The echoes of this phrase in my head are of a parent correcting children
who are misbehaving, or a child telling another to stop doing something
that is annoying. Not quite a saying like "Cease and desist!"
