I am so proud of you for committing to quit smoking! Woohoo!
When I think of smoking, I just think about how bad it smells. Most of the people I know who smoke have the smell in their hair, clothes and breath(but do not think that they smell bad at all). Smoking makes you look way older than your years. The simple act of wrapping your lips around the cigarette makes you pucker and it creates those lines around your mouth that the lipstick bleeds into. Also crow's feet appear much earlier for smokers.
The biggest reason to quit smoking is your health. My mom was the only one in her group of four that did not smoke. All three of the others have had cancer. Two are dead and the other one had to have the bottom third of both of her lungs removed. My mom is is her early sixties and, even though they were all the same age, she always looked at least five to ten years younger than her friends. I know my mom misses her best friends terribly and worries about her one remaining friend as it has not yet been five years since her surgery. They say you are not a survivor until you mad the five year mark.
Best wishes for a swift cessation of smoking....for you wallet, your health, your youthfull look and most important, so we can have you around the FORT longer.
