Never smoked a cigaretter before. Hates the smell of it. Til on my 30th birthday, I started smoking
but social smoking and have to get rid of the smell and brush my teeth before bed cos I hate the smell in the morning.
Okay, half of my nursing friends smoked cigarette.

or a heavy smoker or non smokers.

I do not smoke. When I was 15, a boy kept encouraging me to take a whiff of his cig, so I did.
okay...peer pressure...shouldn't have...but... Anyhoo.........I choked upon inhaling and threw up all over the front seat of his car. Since that awful experience, I never touched another cig. :chuckle
My parents were chain smokers, and I had really bad upper respiratory problems. Think they'd care about that enough to quit the habit? Think again.
I made it a habit never to date smokers because if I did, I wouldn't be so nice to be around and I didn't want them thinking I didn't like them when it was their smoking habit I detested. Both my ex and my current spouse were nonsmokers like myself...praise God for that. All three of my daughters have tried smoking. The middle daughter is fighting to quit...says it's not easy...but is trying. The other two quit...cold turkey...so they have told me. If I go to their homes and smell cig smoke, I go into my healthspeech about how I didn't give birth to those lungs of theirs for them to take out of this world on a bed of black tarry cancer. :chuckle My grandchildren who are in school now have also been educated in school about the dangers of smoking...first and second hand...so now they are in their homes to give their parents the healthspeech they have heard Gramma give before. :chuckle
Hats off to those of you who have kicked the habit, and for those of you who are working on kicking the habit. Keep up the good work in that department! Your kids will love and thank you for doing so. :kiss
