Reasons to Quit Smoking.
Beyond all of the obvious benefits of quitting smoking (such as an extended lifespan and a fatter bank account), let me offer a few other reasons to quit for any smokers out there.
- Peee-yooo. Let me clear up any doubts on this matter. Non-smokers can smell your cigarettes, active and past. You cannot smell it for the same reason that crazy cat lady cannot smell her urine soaked rugs - acclimation.
- Boooring! You addiction is obvious by your stepping outside every so often to feed it, and it interrupts the wonderful conversation we were having. Don't you wonder what you're missing when we're still inside?
- Creepy. I saw a stripper taking a smoke break outside the Lusty Lady last week. OK, I'm not positive she was a stripper. She was wearing high heels and a full length trench coat, and trying not to be seen - draw your own conclusions. If I were her, having to stand outside downtown Seattle in stripper clothes and a trench coat would be a huge motivator for quitting.
