The method of my success derived from a no smokers near me policy: at work and home and by my not going to old smoking haunts; my only DANGER ZONE, a smoking area in my short-walk from work to the gym. Thus, I developed a preset determination not to ask for a smoke.
Of my grandfathers, one lived to 93 and the other to 55. The later, I never knew because he died of lung cancer before I could ever know him. I am 56, my wife 25, my son 21 months. My wife, worried about my health, wanted me to smoke less. Not an option for a 42-year-long, nicotine fen smoker like me; quitting, being my only hope. Smoking had become part of my life, persona and self-image. Fearing giving it up way too long, I finally submitted to quitting for them; now, happier and healthier than ever.

Stay away from smokers and cigarettes as much as possible for as long as possible. DO NOT THINK: I can smoke just one or two...NEVER IS BETTER!!!
