The negative health affects of smoking are clear: each cigarette is going to cost you at least 7 minutes of your life on average.  Is it worth it?  Are those two packs of cigarettes today worth having one less day to spend with your wife and kids? I didn’t think so!

Of course, most of us need some way to unwind from a stressful day.  When I started working to stop smoking I joined a wine of the month club because I thought it would give me something to occupy my time (learning about wine) but also would allow me to have something to look forward to instead of my nightly pack of cigarette’s!
