When you're young, and in an environment where a large percentage of others smoke, cigarettes are advertised in print, TV and more, it's "cool," and no one has ever admitted there was a problem with smoking, it's kind of difficult to "don't start" after 10-50+ years, Dan. Now go back to the mid-50s and get me to "don't start."

Get off our backs.

And don't forget the advertisements back in the day claiming that 9 out of 10 doctors preferred Brand X, or whatever they were plugging at the time.  One hell of an endorsement for the Tobacco Companies.

I quit drinking and smoking the same day 35 years ago. One kind of went with the other.

You'll save a lot of money. I remember when I was in the Navy 1963 to 1967 a carton of Camels were $2.  How much is a carton now?

I have never smoked. But I know some folks that started smoking while in the military. It was either the C-Rats or K-Rats that came with cigarettes. I can remember in basic training the TI shouting "smokers, fall out and light em up". So some guys started smoking just to get that benefit. And it seemed the smokers always got more breaks at work during the day.

According to one site on the always to be believed internet A pack ranges from $5.25 in Virginia to $12.85 in New York.

I remember on airplanes in the 60's they would hand out a small package of cigarettes, 4 in a pack.

We flew to Japan in 1989 on a military contract flight. The back half of the plane was the smoking section. And how about back when restaurants had smoking and non smoking sections. Most were separated by a waist high partition.

Or before that when there was no separate smoking section, and fire hazard was almost the only thing that caused a no smoking area. Even 1960's (and before) TV shows often show people in the audience smoking.

Many years ago, I flew on a plane that allowed smoking on one side of the isle.  This worked quite well until someone lit up.

My dad smoked a pack a day, and when I was 12 or 13, he told me if I wanted to smoke, I wouldn't have to sneak around bumming cigarettes off of my friends.  He'd give me all I wanted and even teach me how to smoke.

I took him up on that offer and we went out behind the house for my first lesson.  He smoked L&Ms, and unbeknownst to me handed me one with the filter cut off.  Really nasty stuff.

He showed me how real men smoke, taking a long drag to get that good stuff deep into the lungs.  Not any of that shallow puff-puff sissy stuff.  I lit up and as I took my first drag he gave me a strong slap on the back for effect.

Several minutes later I finished coughing and throwing up.  I've never wanted a cigarette since then.  Aversion therapy works.

I'm doing well. I don't plan on smoking any more. This is probably the umpteenth time I've tried to stop. It's the best I've ever done. I came home yesterday. Should be back to work Monday. Dr. thought TIA at first because I had minimal issues, and recovered from that quickly. MRI showed full blown stroke.

When Jerry was young he tried smoking for while.  One time his parents were out for a few hours and he babysat his younger sister who decided she wanted to try smoking.  He helped her and told her to inhale deeply.  She did and of course choked.  When their parents got home Joy told them Jerry tried to kill her!  Of course they weren't happy with him but were secretly delighted that she no longer wanted to smoke.  Unfortunately the lesson didn't stick and a few years later she started for real.  She kept smoking until she met a man who told her he hated cigarettes and they couldn't date unless she quit smoking.  That cured her!  She hasn't smoked since and it's been about 20 years.  Yes, he's now her husband.  The entire family is smoke free.
