My reasons

Can't afford it.

Will be able to pay off debts quicker.

Hopefully will have more energy.

Food will taste better.

Price of cigs is going to keep on going up.

There is a history of lung cancer in my family. I lost my mother and recently my uncle to it both of which were non smokers when diagnosed.

Fed up with being a slave to nicotine.

Will stop smelling of nicotine.

Don't want to have yellow teeth.
