Well Joel, you will be I think the only man here at this party and no smoking allowed! This thread was started by a guy but he hasn’t been around for a long time. Hope he is ok wherever he may be and hopefully not smoking still.

There is a lot of girl talk so I will still write you in the other thread too. No smoking there either!

Oops..I’m sorry..do you prefer JoelJose or Joel?

Yes, the 6th day one you started. It is enjoyable to write there too. Hmmm. You ask an interesting question. My answer would be we are all beautiful spirits here I think. Also, I’m not sure how to put this politely, but I think we are all old enough to be your mother, perhaps older even? My Stepson is your age. He is lucky and never smoked and never will.

Yes Lore i know.i was just kidding..i know you all are pretty people as you have the inner beauty that far outweighs the physical beauty.My mom doesnt know i was a smoker and now i am so happy that i have nothing to hide from her.i am very happy and proud to have  beautiful people like you guiding me,atleast in this online platform.i never experienced the love of a grandparents in real life.see how blessed i am!i am receving your love and support while i am overcoming the hardest addiction which i thought i wont be able to conquer.i am so proud of your grandson that he never smoked and never will.Before i was a smoker, i thought(everyone of us here) we will never be hooked to cigarettes.Tobacco products should be banned.Easier said than done :(

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.
