End it now. I've found the sure fire conversation killer that allows you to actually enjoy your cigarette in peace.
Next time someone asks why? Implores you to stop? Explains the health risks in grueling monotonous detail....
The best thing to do is listen and just quit-
Like everyone in this thread I used to make excuses for a terrible habit. Sure, to each his own- but the people only say something because they care.
And, when you do quit (you will one day, regardless) if you are still alive, you will realize how much better you feel, how much money you save, and
how much your family and friends will respect you for kicking the habit. I quit, after making excuses for better than 20 yrs. Quitting wasn't all
that bad...the first 3 days were a bummer but after that I began to feel better. Much better. Today, I realize how stupid
I was for making
excuses all those years, and trying to justify a disgusting and deadly habit that benefitted nobody but big tobacco. Smoking is not cool. Smoking is
Smoking is a display of personal weakness and willingness to feed all that money to big tobbacco. They got all ya'll right where they want you-
defending and justifying their deadly product that you
are addicted to.
Wisen up, people- how many of ya'll in this thread smoke around your kids?
I used to- and feel bad that I once did. If you have a family, quit for your kids-
I have read this thread and some of the excuses are just outright, well, idiotic. May all ya'll have the courage and guts
to just quit.
Peoples words in this thread may encourage some young kids (of many are here) to pick up the habit, and I dislike hearing these ill placed
justifications for a stupid habit to be placed before them, especially by moderators. I do not respect that at all- bash me, whatever I do not care. I
speak the truth- quit for a month and then tell me you do not feel better. And so willl everyone else around you.
