Ah. I love Lifehacker.
I’m sure many of you know Peter Jennings died of lung cancer this past Sunday. He’d been a smoker until about 20 years ago, successfully quit and then had a relapse shortly after September 11, 2001.
They then go on to name a few stop smoking resources.
I’ll add one: Quitnet. Quite the community there. If you smoke and want to stop, you could do worse. Strangely, though, after a while, fixating on quitting almost creates the atmosphere that you need to re-start. Watch that if you are a smoker that wants out.
I’ll share: I smoke, and have for too damn long. My daughter has never, EVER seen me smoke and I don’t intend for her too. For some reason, though, probably pure fear, has made this Peter Jennings thing have an impact. Hopefully it will last. I’m not saying that I quit smoking, I just decided… what the Hell, I’ll give it a shot.
Wish me luck. Or don’t. Not sure which kind of luck I’d get, with this crowd!
