    I quit smoking 5 years ago. I tried to quit for over a decade and a half. Finally made it.

    Nicotine has a vicious, vicious grip. Like that kitty in the vid.

    I quit in September of 1980. I may have had a drunken slip or two a couple of times after, but I never bought another pack, and I know I haven't had a cigarette for way more than 25 years.

    I dropped a 2 1/2 pack a day habit cold turkey in 1979 for two reasons.

    1. The price of Cigarettes went up to 50 cents a pack and I wasn't going to pay that.

    2. My wife was pregnant with my oldest daughter.

    I remember buying two cartons every payday for less than $12. And same - I quit because I was reading a book that said smoking could cause fetal brain damage and lowered birth weight.

    Girl was 9lb, 5oz. I coulda done with some lowered birth weight.

    If there is anything as addictive as nicotine, I do not ever want to encounter that substance.
