Smoking is not just a habit it is a physiological addiction, your brain becomes a slave to nicotine...those kind of addictions are hard to break.
Good job that things are working for you.
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger and so the process of stopping something that kills you will make you a happier person at the end of the day.
I have to laugh at the fact that Cigarettes are legal. They do so much harm to so many people, and are so addictive, yet the government says ok because they get the tax.
The government basically has smokers by the balls, the prices go (slowly by surely) up and up but since smokers are addicted they keep buying. Funny thing, in Australia some of the tax from cigarettes goes towards anti-smoking advertising.
I guess in the end of the day the health care costs outweigh the tax benefit the government gets.
