Never Have

I have never smoked cigarettes. I could never understand why people do. I have friends that smoke and they cough all the time, they complain about the cost and they don't realize that they always smell like smoke.

My husband smoked when I met him. He was the first and only guy I dated who smoked. When my father had a heart attack back in 1999, my husband decided for himself to quit. It took him about a year to do it, but he did and hasn't smoked since. He said it was one of the hardest things he ever did. And, now he can't stand it when he is around it.

I tried smoking when I was 8 years old for a while and then quit because it was too difficult to always go out in the woods where no one could see you. I set the woods on fire once.

I wish I had never started...and the reasons why we do are complicated and often don't make much sense to those who would never consider it...I'm glad your husband stopped...someday I will, too...peace...SS
