I've inhaled a lot of other people's smoke, but none of my own.

And once I put a cigarette in my mouth. But nothing happened. No lighter.

Nope. Don't smoke.

One day, not too many years ago, I made an almost identical comment as you have made here.

No point?

How about so that you will be around to finish raising your child and have the chance to enjoy your grandkids someday?

Please don't take offense by my response. If I didn't care, I wouldn't say anything at all, but this is something I am very passionate about right now. These are personal stories, written by me very recently. I hope you will take the time to truly read them.

The Decision To Quit Smoking

Preparing to Quit Smoking

Setting the Plan in Motion

When you are young, it is so easy to believe that you can stop any time, and cannot see the reasons. A few years down the road, you suddenly understand ...

You know Cricket I don't take offense to anything you post in response to me or really anyone else.. I have read enough by you to know that you say what you think and feel. I have been smoking for well over a decade. I never said I could stop at any time, but I know you won't be successful in quitting if you really don't want to. So why lie to myself, set myself up for disappointment when I could just be honest with myself and say.... hey I love smoking, I don't want to quit, therefore I am not going to. The reality is, I am addicted... and I like my addiction. When I stop liking it is when I will consider quitting, until then... I will suck down my Camels... in fact that is where I am headed right now.

After you do that, please read the last article I posted, then I promise not to nag anymore.

One of my greatest desires right now is to find a way to reach other smokers and help them understand. I wrote the articles (and will continue to do so) from my heart, in hopes that they might make a difference for even one smoker out there.

I think there are local support group websites, you may want to contact them as well if your serious about volunteering as a type of mentor. Sorry you didn't reach this smoker. I can sympathize with the not wanting to go to the doctor. I will never have such a chance not to see doctors or hospitals all the time. I have a LOT of medical problems, some I was born with, some I aquired in my teens and early adulthood. Smoking as a vice doesn't contradict too much of my medical problems as other popular vices would and do. But when you are already faced with the possibility of not having a really long life, the killing you part of smoking isn't really that different than if I didn't smoke. So living a longer life isn't much of a motivator to stop smoking.

No worries, you will quit when the time is right, one way or another.

P.S. I have already started a private support group for members of my web training classes who are serious about quitting, so I am reaching out as fast as I can.

I smoked 2 packs a day (40 a day) and gave up as my new years resolution this year.

I have not smoked in 3 weeks and 4 days. It's the hardest thing I have ever had to do.

I am also getting fat. All I do is eat now. My girlfriend smokes. It's tough.

CONGRATS! Once you feel more in control of not smoking, you can go back and work on eating healthy.

I am proud of you!

Being fat can kill you too, so you ought to be careful with that as well. One of my very very very good friends is quitting as well. Whenever he craves a cigarette he drinks a glass of water. Too many people never drink enough water, so not only is he quitting he is giving his body the water it needs. Having the girlfriend still smoke is hard too. Maybe it might encourage her to quit when she sees you really succeed.

Watching a young and ambitious guy die from lung cancer is enough to make anybody want to stop.

I do not smoke either, I do not like to smoke and I don't know why people do smoke.
