That they are able to actually find women who continue to smoke AFTER being treated for breast cancer is depressing.

Surely indication enough of the terible hold nicotine has over people?

Another limpdick smoker trying to get other stupid smokers to give their financial information to a bunch of crooks. Way to go, LIMPDICK. Quit smoking and you won't have to work at a crappy assed job like this. Maybe you will even get a woman once you stop stinking like a smoky turd.
