    For all those who read my smoking thread. Guess what guys?
    IM FINALLY OFF THAT SHIT!!! :yay:
    Finally took the vow a couple of days after one of the last post of that thread.
    I told all my friend I was going to quit. And of course, they were like bullshit. But I showed them. And i made about 20 bucks from them too :D
    Now that Im not wasting my damn money on little sticks of suicide, Im saving up for more mods for the taco!!!

    Thanks to all the people that helped me out through this. And yall were right, will power really does alot. I missed a couple of days of school though, i would't stop throwing up everything I ate and I just told my nurse I had a stomach virus. I told my mom everything and she took it better than I thought. :)

    God, now that I see how much money I spent on cigarettes, I just want to smack myself and scream at myself for even getting into it.
    I still have minor cravings once in a while, but its nothing I can't overcome.

    Thanks again guys!!! :)

    as long as you dont get back into it, or are readily available to people who do smoke, you should be ok by the time 21 comes around, unless they lower the drinking age to 18 like they keep saying:rolleyes:

    Oh, 16. Quite while your ahead. I started at 15. Last month the doctor told me I have asthma. This really sucks because the military doesn't take to kindly to those who have asthma. I wish I never started.

    Good for you. This is not only going to help your health, but that improved health (along with not buying any more cigs) is going to save you a lot of money over your lifetime.

    Time to buy some mods fer the truck ;)
