I have never smoked a single cigarette and nor have any of my family members. My father did occasionally enjoy a fragrant pipe when I was very small,but even that was a VERY rare occurrence! Smokjing is something whiuch I have always detested immensely,so much so that when a lovely young man wanted to go out with me when I was 16,I told him that if he was serious,he would have to give up smoking! And to his credit,and my delight,he DID!!!
No, I’ve never smoked, & all these 40 + years since I was a teenager, I’ve thought how great it was that I’ve saved all that ‘smoking money’ for my cruising & Swatch watch collection! And I’ve never owned a car, so I’ve also saved that money as well by not having to pay for car rego & insurance, etc!
Yes. I started too young, smoked for thirty something years, Quit cold turkey nine years ago just to prove I could. Haven't had one since! However, during a check-up last year the doctors found a spot on my lung. It was cancer. So it had to come out. I'm fine now but I wish I had never started smoking in the first place! To all you non-smokers, keep up the good work, lead by example. To those who smoke, try to stop, it's only as hard as you make it. YOU CAN DO IT!!!
