50 years, amazing, I smoked off and on before quitting 35 y/ago… such a mentally draining habit…

Quit over 14 years ago...best decision I ever made. It took my MIL and SIL to pass away from lung cancer as well as my other SIL to beat it, but still weezing and out of breath all the time for my wife to finally give them up last year. I know its still a battle for her...I would never go back.

Fortunately never started in HS - all of my friends did and all have struggled to quit,

A friend who has been smoke-free for almost twenty years often says: Quitting is easy. I've done it dozens of times.

Your approach, is what I tell my kid about a number of things. The easiest way to quit is not to start.

I learned to smoke on Parris Island back in 1970. Finally quit about ten years ago but the damage had been done. Most don't know smoking is the number one cause of bladder cancer. I am cancer free now but I am without my bladder and prostate.

my 80 y/o cousin who passed a year ago, had the bag for years. I believe he had colon cancer.. , he smoked right to the end, he gave up trying… it pained me to see how terribly addicted he was and the shape he was in… C22…

He lived to 80 doing what he liked seems like a good run to me

Recently watched a streaming documentary on the vaping industry, mostly Juul.
Hook them all on nicotine and you've got cash flow.
Some of the kids were intaking the nicotine equivalent of 5 packs a day - destroyed their lungs before reaching 20.
