I also tried smoking when I was young, around 19 I guess. I only smoked for a few months, and never inhaled (yeah I know you’ve heard that somewhere before). So I never got hooked. Then one day I really thought about it and realized that if I went on with it I’d eventually inhale and then get hooked. I was only smoking a couple cigarettes a day at this time. Cigarettes were around 55 cents a pack and I thought about what it would add up to over a year’s time and that the money could be better spent on other things. Now when I think about what cigarettes cost these days I have to laugh. I know people who quit and then put the money they were saving into a fund and at the end of a year treat themselves to something very nice like a vacation.
