  •  I, like you, hate tobacco companies. Now I am in (6+ / 0-)

    my third "successful" quit from smoking. By "successful" I mean more than a year.

    I wish I had never started but back then it was just too easy and no one was really saying it was REALLY bad. And the tobacco companies started the big money push against science based policy discussions, it seems. [Thank You For Smoking is an excellent movie] At this point, even 2 1/2 years nicotine free, I still occasionally yearn for just one...or two. Just two. Or three......But I have started smoking again after quitting for 3, AND 4 years! successfully because I thought that "Just One" was a reasonable concept.

    Something so demonstrably harmful should be outlawed. Like burning coal and fracking for gas when we know a relatively tiny Government effort to encourage photovoltaic and wind and geothermal energy [etc.] production could work.

    Thanks for this diary Wee Mama, the DKos community needs to remember "Smoking Really Sucks. !" The tobacco companies don't contribute to Progressive candidates. So, Not only are you fucking with your health, you are contributing to the vast wealth of the forces arrayed against your best interests. Stop Smoking. Now. Or really SOON! For your self. For the people who love you and need you. For the health of your home, Planet Earth.

    I could go on and on, but, I have a headache

    There is no they, We will sink or swim together.... We are here to awaken from the illusion of our separateness
