: more times than I like to admit, only to
: come back to it again...and again. I just
: enjoy it...Period. Yes, it is repulsive to

: is I recently started smoking again when my

: I work at my family business so I have to go
: all day without smoking since I hide this
: from my parents as well. I know I am an

: to hear about it, I don't want to hear about
: how "bad it is" how "i
: stink" etc. My husband is great about
: it. Tells me I am an adult and I can do what
: I want. If only everyone was like that...
