All my life I grew up with people smoking and I understood at an early age that smoking was bad for our health. I knew it was a risk to take to even start smoking...because of the addiction. I would see family members that I loved..smoking and carrying on and this would make me so sad and afraid. As always I have had an understanding that buying them is asking for trouble big time. In no time I was addicted for many years and had the courage and power to quit. I am so thankful to have done this and to have been done with them for many years now..never looking back.
