Someday Never Comes

By now, I'd have to say that all adult smokers know that smoking is hazardous to their health.

Yet, if you ask many of them when they are going to seriously take the steps necessary to beat their nicotine addiction, a good portion of them will respond with the dismissive word "someday".

As most anti-smoking advocates know, for a lot of those smokers, like Bill - someday never comes.

Bill urges young people to never start smoking. "If I was young again, I would never smoke," he says. "It's not good for your health or your pocketbook. It doesn't make you look cool, and it doesn't help you in any way!"

Bill also regrets the example he set for his children. "It's embarrassing when your 5-year-old asks you why you don't quit smoking. Yes, my children saw me smoke. But I'm glad they saw me quit!"

I can't say it enough - nothing good ever comes from a nicotine addiction. You'd better learn it fast, you'd better learn it young. Because for many, once you're addicted, someday never comes.

  1. Father's Day is an occasion to celebrate the contribution that fathers and father figures make to children's lives. Fathers help children navigate through society and influence general habits and their overall way of living.

    Fathers play a significant role in influencing their children through their own decisions. These decisions can have a profound effect—changing the path a child takes in life as well as their perceptions of their father because they view him as a role model.
