Lisa127, it was a smoker that brought it up...
I quit smoking a few years back, I'm glad I did, though i do miss the camradere(sp?) that smokers seem to have. I still get the pangs to have a smoke, specially when I want to choke the hell out of the &#$&&# at the other end of the line.
As a non smoker I don't want to have to carry the bill for illnesses caused by smoking, and it's more then a money thing. It adds strain to our hospitals tying up drs and nurses that could be doing better things then saving something brought on by self infliction.
