the Fantasy of ONE
the Reality of TEN THOUSAND
Yep, that's ten thousand nicotine-laden cigarettes in a glass container.....
That's even LESS than I used to smoke in just ONE year.....
Insanity???...some would say yes....
Addiction??? unquestionably. Do your own math.....then factor in the expense and everything else that will tag along.
You know you can't have 'just one' because one = ALL
For the sake of all your tomorrows
No Nicotine Today

Being tempted watching others smoke:

Don't fantasize about cigarettes. Always keep a clear, objective perspective of what it would once again be like to be an addicted smoker. There is no doubt at all that if you relapse to smoking you will be under the control of a very powerful addiction.
