Stop


You want me to stop smoking,
This is not about you.
I'll do it when I'm ready, and to me I will be true.

    Amen. It's amazing how a democratic society permits special interest groups to gain traction and eventually win their way.....mostly due to the apathy and non-involvement of the targeted group/s. We are non-smokers, but we both support the rights of smokers to smoke....even allowing our friends who smoke to smoke in the house if they want to.
