I want to revisit this topic again because today I nearly puked when I walked by a group of 7-8 women, 1 child per woman, and only 1 of them was not smoking a cigarette.
At the end of this week, it will be 1 month until it's been 1 year since I quit smoking. I quit for my son and for myself and I can't even imagine myself as a smoker now.
My mom and sister smoke. My dad, brother and youngest sister do not smoke. My partner and his family don't smoke. The smell of it makes me wanna vomit now. My mom doesn't smoke around my son and I generally avoid people who do smoke if I see them smoking outside of a building.
I do understand how hard it is to quit smoking, I tried for YEARS before I found something that worked for me. I also understand that there are so many aids out there that if you want to quit there are no excuses. And I also understand that there are some people out there who just plain don't want to quit. And that's their choice.
What I CAN NOT understand is standing in a circle and blowing smoke into the faces of babies !
