I began smoking at age 12. By the time I entered high school at age 13 I was already addicted... had to rush outside for my "fix" during the 5 minute break period between classes. I enlisted in the Navy during WWII at 17 and thought I was in Heaven because brand name cigarettes were 50 cents a carton on all military bases. (Civilians had to pay almost 2 dollars.)
I continued my "pack and a half a day" habit for 62 years... and then I found the QuitNet... and my life has been "smokeless" ever since.

My advice to all you Quitters is:
"Keep a good attitude and be filled with gratitude that you are smoke-free".
