I quit smoking in 1970, when I was just 24 years old, and I haven't touched tobacco in over 40 years now. It's one of the best things I've done with my life; for those around me, and for my pets, too.
Below is the list of smoking-related articles I have written over the past several years. It took me about a year to quit smoking...and if I can do it...so can anyone else!
- The Insanity of Smoking;
This piece includes a few of many famous people, who have died of smoking; Walt Disney; Nat 'King' Cole; Peter Jennings; Roger Miller;
- Smoking Sucks! How I Quit Smoking;
I went for a job interview one time, and the interviewer asked me what the best thing I had ever done in my life, and the answer was easy; 'Quit smoking!"
- Young People Should Not Start Smoking;
I really let young people have it in this piece. I don't give a damn if you die from smoking! It's your choice...and you made the wrong choice...so don't bitch if you have smoking-related illnesses and even death, etc. And, don't blame everyone else for your weaknesses, etc. You don't have what it takes to quit smoking...
- Sabrina: Another Smoking Casualty;
I worked with Sabrina for about 18 months, and then she died at the young age of 38, and left a 14 year old and a husband behind.
- Second-Hand Smoke and Pets Make For a Toxic Mix;
Pets get cancer, just like humans do, especially dogs and cats, etc. I see stupid smokers with pets all the time...and they don't care who they pollute. Pets can't have a choice...they just go where their owners take them, etc.
- Smoking Can Cause Mental Illness In Later years;
I know that in my later years, if I have problems with mental problems, it won't be from smoking...
- Attention Stupid Smokers;
- Have You Ever Kissed an Ashtray? (pucker-up); When me and my ex parted our ways, there were about five reasons on the pie chart, and her smoking was one of them. For 19 years, that we were together, I could not get her to quit smoking, and it made a difference in our relationship. If there is another woman in my life, and she smokes...she can just keep on going!
- Heaven; Smoking or Non-Smoking Section?
Find out if anyone who sells cigarettes will come to your funeral...I'll bet nobdoy shows up!
- Kids 'Sentenced' To Class To Quit Smoking; I think this is a great program for kids. When they are caught smoking in school...they are 'sentenced' to take and complete a non-smoking class in the same school.
- Number One Litter Problem In the World;
When I did research on this piece, I was surprised to learn, that cigarette butts are the worst litter all around the world. Careless and uncaring smokers, just toss their butts anyplace...and could be a danger to themselves and others, etc.
- Poison Alert: Second-Hand Smoke;
Research over the years, has shown that second-hand smoke is dangerous as first-hand smoke.
- Cigarette Bootleggers; Society's Burden;
- E-Cigarette: Just Another Toy For Excuse-Makers;
- Smoking and Heart Attacks; You Made Your Bed;
I think this is one of the best sayings in the country; "You made your bed...you can sleep in it." When it comes to smoking, you have a choice...you can smoke...OR you don't have to smoke...it's your choice. So, don't blame someone else for your own weaknesses...
-Smoking: Committing Suicide One Puff at a Time;
Elvis didn't die of a heart attack! He took drugs little by little over a long period of time, until his heart stopped! That's the way I see smoking...little by little the heart will stop...for the smoker...committing suicide over a long period of time...
-Warning: Your Life Could Go Up in Smoke!
