Luvlelady...you might have more will power to quit after having your first heart attack or find out you have lung cancer. My grandmother died from smoking her whole life...my mom had her first heart attack at the age of 55. She quit cold turkey! I grew up with it and had problems when I was younger from 2nd hand smoke. This was not my choice.
I have no compassion for smokers who get upset with us non smokers. We are concerned about OUR health. We choose not to smoke for a reason.
There's a town here in our state that banned smoking from all restaurants. The heart attack rate went down 40%! Hhmm...something to think about.
