Steve, you are right...and right again. I quit because of the costs associated with smoking, and not the risks that it poses to my health. I am, otherwise, a naturally healthy-living person, and you would think that I would have put more stock in my health....but, my mentality has always been a little bit "here-and-now", and "to each, their own".

I am not "pro-smoking", and I'm definitely, definitely not "pro-propagandist-advertising", so I don't mean to sound like I'm championing products that have caused great harm to many wonderful people...I am not. I sympathize with those who have lost, and those who have been hurt by any number of such products. I feel SO much better without that monkey on my back. I can't explain in words how it feels to fight off an addiction. It makes you feel stronger, happier, healthier, the whole nine. Plus, and here's the best part, I can breathe easily...it's almost like a tiny miracle :)
Congrats and here's hoping you can stick to it long term. Keep up the good fight!
