Smartest thing Ive ever heard

Posted in Staying quit 26 Feb 2021

A respected friend came up to me while playing pool and said"Hi...I see your still know, Ive been hearing some really cool stories and great things about smoking lately, and even thinking about buying a pack and start smoking too. I immediately knew I was done smoking. After 30 years smoking every day. Just done. Over it. I keep replaying the dumb look on his face and his voice when telling me how he might start smoking too. Im going to do this to someone I love, or to someone I dont know, and hope it hits home for them the way it did for me. My teeth are whiter, my skin looks amazing, and I smell like clean laundry all the time. I can breathe easily and dont cough after eating. I feel incredible and its been just over a smoking. Never again. Thank you Larry. Youve saved my life. I can not repay you.

    Congratulations Sunchaser. I do hope your friend was joking. I can imagine you 're head exploding with the thought...."What? Are you some kind of idiot?". We all wish we could be non-smokers. A jolt of reality, a dose of water to bring you accept the bare truth. We would not wish smoking on our worst enemy let alone those we love.

    Young ones emulate us. Just as we did what those close to us do/did.

    We have decided to quit smoking and succeeded. Follow us. Anyone can quit smoking. I expected a friend to quit a drug addiction but would be a hypocrite to say anything given that I smoked. So I quit. It was another valid reason to spur me on. We both succeeded. We can do what we put our minds to.
