Hang in there beer--it is hard to quit but well worth it. I used to smoke and loved every puff, but after a lung X-ray showed a spot and I had to have these cat-scans where they inject dye in your veins--I decided to quit cold turkey. The tests showed there was nothing there, must have been a mistake on the x-=rays!! I was so grateful and decided I never wanted to go thru a scare like again so I stopped. It was uncomfortable, but I just kept picturing what i could be facing in several years if I didnt quit. Its been 5 years this November.
On the other hand, cigarette smokers shouldn't be so villified and hunted down like society's worst offenders. As long as tobacco is a legal product which the government is makeing huge profit off of--here in Canada its massive--smokers should have a place to smoke that doesnt bother others. Also, once smokers have been eradicated, who will be next on the list of society's offenders? You just know there will have to be another target.
