Are you a smoker? Do you know a smoker?
When I was growing up I had a few smokers in my family. They grew up in tobacco country, everybody farmed tobacco, worked tobacco and they smoked. It’s just the way it was. However, it didn’t stop “young me” from sneaking around, scheming with my sister and plotting ways to get my loved one’s to quit. We stole their cigarettes, we reasoned, we begged. What we didn’t understand was that two little girls were never going to be able to provide powerful enough incentive to butt out.
I wish this challenge had been around….
I have just been introduced to The Driven To Quit Challenge and I’m thrilled to help spread the word. This my smoking friends, this may just be the incentive you’ve been waiting for. Check this out:
