Would you give it all your attention?
Would you tend to its needs (acknowledge the craves, do what it takes till they go away, protect it from harmful environments; protect it from abusers: smokers)?
Would you feed him the best food you can afford (read about it, blog about it, learn everything you can about it);
Stay with the EX site and make it a priority at least until you feel your quit is all grown up)?
Hold it and cherish it because it is important and dear to you, and you know how good it is to your health, your family, your relationship, your job?
