Hello Gershon … very good Gershon. Those ‘coffin nails’ certainly rule the roost once there’s a taste for them - thank you Gershon - Lindsay

I'm glad I gave them up way back in 1973. I was a two-pack a day man too. Cheers, Gershon

I think we've all known people like that. I have never had a cigarette of any kind in my life and am proud of it. However when people I used to know found that out that really pushed their grass on me. I just explained I didn't judge them for smoking but I was not interested. My mom smoked for years and only quit the last ten years of her life. Great write Grshon.\ God Bless, JB

Well, you're better than I am. Smoked those coffin nails for five years, though I had my last one in 1973. I would say that I've definitely quit! Cheers, Gershon

Good for you. Took me 9 months to stop. Glad I did.

I say "good for her! " Cancer sticks. That gave me pause. My mother kept lying to the doctor about ever smoking; I was shocked he could not smell the residual nicotine in her pores. She finally admitted "minimal" which was a lie. She died of bone cancer.

Yup... Smoking's outcome is never good, even if it doesn't result in death.
