First off, let me say that I am not one to lecture about vices. I have more than enough of my own - I once sustained second degree burns trying to deep fat fry a Twinkie at home. However, many of you know that I recently lost a good friend, due in part to a long history of smoking. I'm not going to pretend that there is a single person out there who doesn't already know that smoking is detrimental to your health, so I'll spare you the details. I am well aware of the fact that it wouldn't do any good anyway. After all, several of my friend's close relatives have resumed the habit - knowing full well that they are genetically predisposed to developing Cancer from it.
THAT IS A TESTAMENT TO HOW POWERFUL A HABIT SMOKING CAN BE.
So, if you are a happy smoker, and content with your habit, so be it. But... if you are a smoker, and wish not to be, you have a long, hard road ahead of you. And I know this may sound silly, but for some reason (Deb?), I really feel driven to post this:
I have a coupon to save $5 on Nicorette 100 ct. or larger. And, if you have a Rite-Aid near you, they have an additional $5 Single Check Rebate available on the 100-120 ct. packages this month. That's $10 to get you started. I know it's not much, but aside from my support, it's what I have to give right now.
I will be happy to send the coupon to the first person to email me (marlylynk at yahoo dot com). Your identity will definitely be kept confidential - unless of course, you would like me to post about your progress (talk about a kick in the pants!). I may not have many readers, but what I lack in quantity, I more than make up for in quality. I'm certain you would receive some heartfelt support.
