I have been a smoker for 10+ years now. I enjoyed a good smoke. Now I am about middle age, have a kid and need to quit. I am sitting at work with a patch on my arm and finger dug into this desk as I nic fit. What a horrid addiction this is.
Ladies and gentlemen, in my life I have done all sorts of addictive drugs and walked away. But this... This evil that has its fingers wraped around me.
I find myself cutting deals with myself. (Well I will just buy one pack, I have been so good I deserve a treat.) or (Just one won't hurt). I have not given into any of these thoughts because I have been here befor.
I know some of you in here will post something inteligent like... Screw it, why quit. Or You got to die sometime.
Here is a thought. We sit in here talking about how awful the RIAA is or the MPAA http://www.riaa.com/ http://www.mpaa.org/
But think of this. Some fat old white guy is making money off of your slow death. Think about it. These things are like leagle crack. You get addicted, get a fatal disease(cancer, Emphysema, and who knows what else). You die a painful death while you mother or children watch, and Joe CEO gets a 15 million dollar bonus.
Not it isn't quite his fault. I mean I was an idiot for smoking in the first place. To want to inhale smoke is stupid. People die from smoke inhalation and some of us chose to do this. <img border="0" alt="[knock]" title="" src="graemlins/knock.gif" /> Yea that was smart...
Anyway, To any of you not smoking do yourself a favor, never start. I can't walk up 3 flights of stairs without getting winded and light headed. Wish me luck and save the "keep smoking comments please".
