A Matter Of Opinion

Smoking: How did you kick the habit?

(AP file photo.)

Today’s editorial applauded a state program that helps low-income smokers kick the habit. It should save taxpayer money, plus help people find jobs. Whether anyone admits it, certain negative assumptions are made about job candidates who smoke.

Several of my family members once smoked and gave it up in recent years. They struggled mightily. For about a year after they quit, they got physically sick and experienced the blues. “It was like giving up a best friend,” one of my sisters said.

So today, let’s share kicking-the-cigarette habit stories.
