...and still we do it.

*The moment I saw this photograph, this line from THE THORN BIRDS started going round and round in my head.  

My late husband  was just like Gerry.  He would stop, cold turkey, for years at a time and then start up again.   He went from being a healthy 6 footer one minute,  to a shadow of his former self the next....nine months from diagnosis to extinction.

Not all the pleasure of smoking was worth the pain he went through.
