I started smoking back in the 1950s when it was a fad. I quit smoking on November 22,1998. I developed lung cancer and had surgery on September 1,2011. They said they got it all. But I have to be under care by a cancer dr. for 5 years. Hope it does not come back. Now I am scared of cigarettes like I am nuclear bombs. Both essentially have the same objective of wiping you out. Going out because of smoking would be more expensive and painful than being nuked by a bomb.
