  • Take the "Smoker's Test" !!
    Hi Zep, You did say take this quiz with your old pre-quit mind set? I did - got a D. I guess if I could really revert to that thinking I would have scored even worse. I mean, when you are an addict in denial there is no way to ace this quiz, you're a loser every time.Keep up the good work. YQB Barry
