I am 47 years old. I began smoking as a teenager and smoked right through my first pregnancy. At that time a lot of people didn't realize smoking was bad for them- and for their unborn children.
I quit smoking after about 10 years and was a non-smoker for 12 years. Then my husband and I divorced. I took on a second job and was raising 2 children alone. My co-workers on my night job all smoked and I guess my life just sucked so bad that at the time I didn't care if I harmed myself or not. I started smoking again and have been at it for 13 more years.
I realize now that my life is what I make it. I want it better and I want it to continue for a long time. I want to see my grandchildren grow up.
