The last one I smoked was December 31,1989. I still have urges occasionally but quitting them remains one of the things I am most proud of. Two of my high school buddies ended up being physicians and they really helped steer me away from them, but ultimately it is your own decision that matters most.
When I quit they were .90 per pack and I used the money I saved to buy myself a gift each month (usually fishing related)-with the current prices, you should be able to save a chunk of money every 30 days.
Though I thought I could never stay off them, I have, and feel very strongly about never starting back. If you want to vent sometimes or just need someone to talk to about them, send me an e-mail, or better yet, come up to the soho or watauga and we'll do some fishing.
