I don't know about where you live, but here in New York it has become increasingly difficult for smokers of cigarettes and cigars to smoke freely wherever they go.
A few years ago, a law was passed that prohibited smoking in restaurants, bars and public enclosed areas like malls and airports. That was just the beginning...
After that, a huge tax was placed on cigarettes, and smokers here saw a pack go from $3, to $7, and now as high as $10. Who the hell in their right mind would pay $10 for a pack of cigarettes??? Well, undeterred by these outrageous cig prices, there are apparently plenty out here who will and do. They've just GOT to have those cigs, no matter what. Must be a hard spot to be in! Just think about how much money that adds up to a year (depending on how much you smoke)!
Well, look out yet again, New Yorkers! Our mayor Mike Bloomberg is now trying to pass a law that will prohibit you all from smoking in city parks and other designated outdoor places! If I was a smoker, I'd be damned mad! After all, as a legal adult, it is your right to smoke even though it's unhealthy as hell, right?
Well, here's yet another reason for you to quit smoking!! Yes! You are becoming a target and a most endangered species in the city of New York! But ya know what? That's in its own way a GOOD thing! ;)
Just think of all of the benefits of quitting smoking RIGHT NOW:
Longer life expectancy
Less threat of getting lung, throat, mouth cancer and emphysema
Saving a ton of money
Being able to participate in sports and exercise without feeling like you're gonna pass out!
No longer having to sneak out of work in the cold and huddle outside your work building for those little smoke breaks while freezing your tootsies off!
No longer being made to feel like a pariah and an outcast because of your addiction to nicotine!
So...... there ya go. There is no better time than now to just quit that crazy habit. I know that I sure would if I were you! ;)
Also, you can take that money you save and invest in a gym membership, buy you some snazzy gym duds and get even healthier. Or even just take the cash you save and enjoy a lovely vacation sometime in the year...
In the end, it's just a win - win situation all the way around!
Just a thought..... no pressure now. ;)
