I loved smoking when I did smoke. However, after I quit, I felt so much better it was plenty of motive to continue not smoking. Not that I wasn't tempted when I sat with smokers. Being older, I know the doctor would be on my back about smoking. So I am glad I have already quit. It would make me mad.
Smoking is nasty. But very, very difficult to give up. "Smoking kills. If you're killed, you've lost a very important part of your life." Brooke Shields
It took me from age 20 until about 50 to stop. I changed jobs and worked in a 'smoke free' building. I had gone from cigarettes to a pipe but that counted. So I switched to chewing tobacco and dipping snuff. Now that WAS nasty, especially finding places to spit. So gradually I quit, it wasn't worth the fuss. Haven't used tobacco since.
Honestly, I would enjoy a cigarette. But the damn things are too expensive, and it isn't worth aggravating my asthma.
