I am so glad I stopped smoking over 20 years ago. Now I don't have to worry about dayum cancer sticks and whether it's menthol or non-menthol.

Was it difficult to give up those Newports or did you have help?

So what are you trying to do? Get somebody to go 'no limit ni 66 a' on the "rednecks" so the "rednecks" can be justified in 'Trayvonning' em? It sounds like a rednecks wet dream to me but by all means, carry on.

You'll be sorry one day when/if you get cancer. You'll see it was not all worth it at all; but since you're feeling "ok" for now, it's not in your mind.

You need to imagine the pain and suffering you'll go through if/when you do get cancer; what suffering your loved ones will go through if it happens.

Think a bit; imagine.

Please look for some other way to have a good time. Go hiking in the mountains or go fishing; go paintball shooting with friends or something that keeps physically and mentally active.

Start eating organic food and drinking filtered water; take organic wholefood supplements; get some sun.

Get off those poison cancer-sticks, please. These criminals are playing you like a pawn.

I'm getting nothing by telling you this; I only say it because I care for you and all those who do this to themselves.

The criminals poisoning you have a motive to make money off of this sick addiction; then when you get sick from it, their other criminal buddies in the "medical" industry will make money off of you over there.

Stop being a slave; get a backbone and quit!

I really do appreciate your deep concern for my health. Although once you start a habit such as this, it's mighty hard to just stop. Im doing what i can do, taking it one step at a time. Finishing my last packs, and then moving on to vapor e-cigs. Then hopefully, by the end of this year quit.
