How I gave up smoking

I don't smoke and we don't have a smoker in the family. When I was in my teens, I used to puff cigarettes once in a while. I was very secretive about smoking, however, one day my father discovered that I smoked. On that fateful day, when we were on the dinner table, he placed a cigarette on the plate and pushed towards me. I was ashamed. Since then I have never touched a cigarette.

The fact that you managed to give up smoking in your teens out of pure shame is absolutely remarkable; I guess most teenagers wouldn't have done the same. I started smoking as a teenager and finally gave up smoking at the age of 33; I wish I wouldn't have wasted so much money on that garbage, but still I',m glad I manged to get rid of that addiction.

It seems that you only have a taste of it that's why you are able to avoid it right away. Good for you.

It is good for you that you don't smoke. It is good for you and your family as the second hand smoking is also harmful.
