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.
