With the next decade just around the corner – scary thought that – it’s time for those dastardly things called “resolutions”. It is a well-known fact that the vast majority don’t stick to those past the first month. They usually consist of “go to the gym more”, “eat better”, “drink less” or “quit smoking (or pretend to)”.
Yes, pretend to quit smoking. As with many other smokers we all, as a matter of course, decided to try again to give up smoking at the turn of a new year. Don’t ask me why we did that. We just did. Some, admittedly, were successful and props to them. Others, like me and thousands of others, barely made it a month.
