My decision of not to smoke encouraged my Father to quit also

yesterday I got a joyful surprise also and that boosted my confidence to say NO to Smoking despite of strange urge form inside to smoke after a couple of weeks.

My father is 68 years old and smoking since my last memories of child hood and yesterday i visited my parents Village and my mother told me that he has not smoked since last 23 days. Unbelievable to me but it is true that he has not smoked for more than three weeks and that too without any support. i asked him why he has taken this decision then he said he came to know about my decision and that inspired him also to take this decision. I am very happy and can proudly announce that we are now a completely no smoking family.
