Oh, thank you Joel. I’m sure your mom would understand and forgive you. I don’t have a grandson though. My stepson is 26. My daughter is 17. Her dad was married before me and had a son, so he became my stepson. I am not a grandmother yet! 
Yes, I’m afraid there is too much money being made for big companies and also in taxes that cigarettes will not be banned. Too bad. So we must do the best we can to educate younger people on the dangers of them and the powerful addiction. This is what I mean my stepson will never smoke. His mother and me and others did all we could to teach him about the trap. I think there is more education nowadays for young people on it than when I was a teenager. Still, though, I think some kids still see it as “cool “ unfortunately. Maybe someday if you have kids you will use your experience to teach them well not to start!

Oh i am really sorry Lore,i got confused stepson with grandson.So ,you are not too old as i thought you were!Yes ofcourse,when i will have a son in future,i will educate him properly about the harm and side effects of smoking.As humans,we tend to be more curious about what we are not supposed to do.Cigarettes stands at the right place for this.They are not too intense as some other drugs.They are subtle and are marketed in somewhat all movies and stuff which children watch right from the childhood .This is what happened with me.i already knew all the sideeffects of smoking..but still i gave it a try and eventually falled into addiction.What is your opinion?

Don’t be sorry Joel, that’s ok. There are definitely some things I’m too old for. Mostly though I figure I’m too young to keep smoking and have lots of things to do yet that smoking will not help me do. Yes, marketing strategies of Big Tobacco are very sly. Even nowadays. Be glad you quit when you are so young and think about that every time you crave. It will not get any easier to quit in the future so just stick with it. Nicotine is likely the most addictive legal substance that exists, here anyway. Some say more so than Heroin. Have you checked in on Justkees? I think she is inspired by your positive attitude!

Here you go Tiny! All my perfect little June Bugs. Well, not all, but hopefully you can see how cute they are and why they made such lovely pins!

oh...it is hard to see their little hooked legs in this picture but I love how the casings have the eye skin too.

No, the June Bugs. The ones in my hand, they leave those little cases on the trees in Michigan.

Yes Lore..i dont know whether its true or not but i heard if we inject the amount of nicotine present in one cigarette directly into the bloodstream, it could kill us. Is Justkees posting on my 6th day of quit?Justkee is a good person. But her sorry was not necessary. I was wrong actually. Quitting is a hard job no matter what. But lifetime smokers do develop habitual associations that might be more harder to break. I cant access them.. Its lost somewhere. The forum behaves strange sometimes...

Lore.. Are you feeling like i am stalking you? Sincerely Lore, i dont know everyone here.And you are a great support for me. I really want this friendship. I hope we support eachother.
