It's not about death, everyone will die at some point. I even know some smokers who has better health status from non smokers.
It's just about the addiction, and honestly I don't want early wrinkles on my face, and my skin ...
I just want to look my age even if I already look 2 - 3 years younger than my age.
Also i spend a lot of money on that.
My friend of mine who used gum as smoking replacement did it for 3 months but we kept trying to make him smoke lol. Now he smokes again.
I didn't smoke so far any little bit, but fuck I really want to and my brain is itching me to do so.
I keep my self busy with random stuff.
