I didn’t want it to come to this, I didn’t want to become this person… but I have. I’ve become the preaching x-smoker that is going to preach at current smokers. See, I managed to finally quit in January, it was one more attempt and for whatever reason this time it took. Who knew.
Now what bothers me most as a non smoker is the smell of current smokers. I had no idea it was that bad, I would have quit years ago had I realized how bad I smelled. I don’t normally notice, maybe I don’t hang out with too many smokers now that I’ve stopped… but on a recent plane ride I sat next to an obvious smoker…. O MY GOD… well, she had some fashion issues too, but the smell was almost unbearable. I found the smell to be an excellent deterrent when I get a craving… just walk by a smoker and you’ll see what I’m saying.
I think if a smokers sense of smell were more aware they would not be smoking at all… but alas that is one of the things to dwindle when you smoke.
