I am 57 years old, married, two children. I started smoking at age 18; quit smoking at age 28....QUIT SMOKING FOR 13 YEARS AND STARTED AGAIN---let this be a lesson---not one puff ever! I am very athletic--exercise, compete in many local run/walk races (for charity etc.) The smoking never seemed to bother me physically BUT I began to be bothered by the "bother"---the pack, the lighter, the smell, the candles to cover smell, extra clothes washing, where you can and cannot smoke AND the cost!! Just becoming more of a hassle than it was worth plus--physically, it is getting me whether I feel it or not (YET!)
I quit smoking on November 15,2009!!!
