I’m happy to know that you were able to quit smoking. You did your best, in consequence now you can taste Anya’s kisses better and her recipes, you can continue helping the hospital children and of course you can swim again. That’s fantastic!.
I think you have a strong spirit and if you continue doing exercises, you can stay more peaceful and have a longer life. You know, I have never been around smokers, therefore I don’t like to be near them and I feel very uncomfortable when somebody blows smoke in my face. That’s disrespectful!
Now that you quit the cigarettes, another thing that you can do for your friends is help them to quit too, otherwise, you can be a passive smoker if you spend a lot of time with them, and you don’t want that. Besides, you could teach them how to save money and spend time doing some sport and give them your advice.
Good luck with your friends!
