When I started full time at about 11 or 12, the little shack store across from our country school sold Lucky Strike from an open pack for 1 cent each. Nobody had 20 cents to buy a full pack. Down through the years all the new fangled do dads came and went, like filters, etc, but nothing beat the Luckys or Pall Malls, except maybe roll your own Prince Albert. I started trying to quit in the 60's and 70's. Only tried about 400-500 times. Finally after coughing up blood for about a year, it was do or die. Fear is a great motivator. I did and have been clean of smoke for 25 m/l years. However, I have cheated from time to time with smokeless tobacco. No matter, every once in a while I seriously consider buying a pack and then look in the mirror at this old face and gray hair. I think I will try to keep it a little longer. Good luck to you guys.

Nah, you'll quit wanting too. I smoked heavily
for over 15 years when incipient sanity led me to
qive 'em up. Took a while I'll admit, but I just
about never even think about them anymore.
Certainly never want one. Best thing I ever did.
(Been off them for around 12 years now.) Good
