Things you always wanted to say but were afraid

Nothing worse than a reformed smoker

I am a reformed smoker.  I began smoking when I worked overseas in Iran. I was 24.  I quit the first time at age 30 and stayed clean until age 48.  At 48 I began again and smoked for 3 years before quitting again at 51.  That has been almost 10 years ago.  I guess I’m through, but I will tell you this – I HATE THE SMELL OF CIGARETTE SMOKE.  I was an elementary school principal and nothing smelled worse than parents that came in smelling like an ashtray except for their poor children that smelled the same.

Also, did I hear the Brian Williams in his interview with John Boehner, in January 2012, say that he could not have art work in his offices because the cigarette smoke damaged them?

So, coming to my point.  Does it bother anyone that John Boehner smokes in the capitol of our country?

    You said it!….Nothing worse than a reformed smoker. 🙂 Have a heart girl!
    I am a smoker and try as i might, even with hypnosis i cant give it up. I smoke 10 menthol a day and am thinking of trying e-lights.
    I do not smoke inside any building even my house. I only smoke in the garden so my home is smoke free and nobody has told me, me or my clothes smell. I think we should not make smokers feel like criminals but smokers should not impose their habit on others, i.e smoking around them, in particular children.
