i love to play games with smokers. my favorite one is when i find a smoker who should know to quit (you know, the ones who wheeze and cough just standing there) and then i try and make them laugh so hard that they start hacking....i love that one.

who knew that inhaling hot smoke was bad for you?

A guy in our office quite and put the money he would have spent on smoking into a piggy bank. After only 1 year he had enough $ for a trip to Hawaii.
It's better to cycle through life than to drive by it.

There's a lot of truth in that "silly comment". It's seems like to be able to REALLY look down on smokers, you need to be an ex-smoker. (This coming from an ex-smoker, myself).

I quit smoking a little over a year ago. I can't believe the stench that surrounds the folks I used to smoke with. And, more so, I can't believe I used to stink like that.

Not having to clean the brown "tint" off my computer monitor is nice too.

I can notice quite a significant performance decrease when i've been exposed to a bit of secondhand smoke the night before a ride. who wants that, eh?
