Every smoker may pay a physical price for smoking. It may be before they quit or it may be many years after.
The point of quitting should really be focused on quality of life as a non smoker as compared to remaining enslaved to tobacco, letting it control your life and remaining powerless over it. What kind of life is that? It's a life of continued scurrying about to find a place and way to smoke. For some, it's a life of spending every last cent and doing without other necessities to satisfy the nicotine addiction.
Your quality of life is in your hands. What choice will you make?
Two guys are drinking in a bar. At a certain moment one says to the other: “I know a magic building. If you jump off the roof, you won’t die and you can fly your way back.” Well the other man doesn’t believe his new found drinking buddy and demands a demonstration. They go up to 50th floor of a building. The first guy jumps off the roof and indeed he comes back flying. The second man is completely blown away by this demonstration and decides to try the same. When he jumps he falls down like a ton of bricks and dies on the pavement downstairs. The first man returns to the bar alone, where the barkeeper is waiting for him. “You’re such a jerk when you’re drunk Superman. That was my third costumer this week.”
The moral of the strory is "Don't get drunk with Superman or your quit may slip right through your hands."
