I'm smoker for awful 17 years. Awful because I'm only 29. I quit smoking after some horrible health issues but those are slowly improving and I fear I'll get back to smoking one day again. I never tried to quit before so I'm doing exceptionally well so far. How not to fail and stay off cigarettes forever? It's a hard one especially when you know what business is behind it. How come that no one cares about the companies who make hundred millions dollars a year on our health? How come quit smoking is subsidized by government when government should be worried about what those companies put into cigarettes in order to make us so heavily addicted? No one would get addicted to tobacco straight from the plant. So unfair.
