10 brands of cigarettes people in Massachusetts should remember
I quit smoking four years ago this month. My wife was just diagnosed with cancer and my father was also undergoing cancer treatment. I just decided “this is it, I’m done” and threw about a third of a pack and never looked back, not even a puff. I don’t even think about it, frankly.
However, growing up both of my parents smoked, including my grandmother, and like a typical teenager, I was strangely intrigued by smoking. I finally stole one of my moms one day and ran into the woods with a buddy and we got into a bad habit. At first the shock in your lungs was unbearable, but it takes “getting used to”, doesn’t it?
Smoking is terrible for you on many levels; however, cigarettes were a big part of American culture.
