Guys...I am not bragging, but I have never smoked in my life and knowing what we do now, I glad I did. I understand how hard it is to stop, but I feel everyone should, for their health and the health of families and friends! I get sick seeing young kids smoke, trying to be cool and look more mature...and killing themselves in the process. The life long smoking which started as a kid has killed my father, his brother and several others in my family and my wife's family. I am sorry, I'am jumping off my box now...just hate to see people inflect pain on themselves.<br><br><br><br>"The day people stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them."

I swear that while travelling on the highway, if the driver of the car in front of me is smoking I can tell. I can smell their cigarette smoke and I can also tell whether the cigarette they are smoking is menthol, box or soft pack and what hand the driver is holding the cigarette in. lol. <br><br>
Heh - heh - good to know I'm not alone with my over-active sense of smell! Folks I work with swear I can smell a cigarette being smoked in the next state. <br><br>10 years since I quit. Lost a couple of friends to lung cancer also. And my Mom and all her siblings have emphysema. <br><br>[color:red]The cure for boredom is curiosity.

I've smoked cigars, especially Cohibas and Romeo and Juliettas regularly, but last New Year I made a commitment to stop. It was hard several times, but I made it and for the last few month I didn't feel like smoking at all. I saved so much money that I bought a decent bike for the money I saved in 11 month. My mother in law stopped smoking cigrettes same time as I stopped after 25 years. She's clean too. I'm proud of her, because I know how much I struggled and my addiction was only the 10th in intensity of hers.<br><br>http://raszl.net

I can smell tobacco smoke on a person days after the smoking took place. It's not a pretty smell, IMHO, which makes me wonder about how I used to smell to others when I smoked--and I was smoking constantly, like three and four packs a day. Lord, what a stench that must have been!<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

I had the pleasure and honor to meet Michael and can say he doesn't smoke that much. On the other hand my uncle died of lung cancer and didn't smoke a cigarette in all his life, lived in a healthy village with clean air... You never know. Of course I'm not saying smoking is good, and continue asking my husband to quit.<br><br>
