It's a brutal clash of pleasant and horrific smells filling their nostrils. Dating will go much easier for those that do not smoke and you never know, the person you meet may be an incredible support system to help you stay on the right path of remaining smoke free for the rest of your life.
Trust this when it is said, your friends will appreciate you more for not smoking around them as they will be healthier for it. Remember they are not only getting the smoke you exhale but also the unfiltered smoke coming from the end of the cigarette. this is the ultimate double attack on their lungs and you can be sure if they wanted to inhale it they would start smoking. Nobody wants to see a friend who is unhealthy and that goes for you as well. many people have respiratory issues you may not know about and despite their kindness as to allowing you to smoke around them, you should respect them and not do it.
Here's the biggie as it is the one all smokers complain about. What could you buy for yourself if you didn't smoke? In some states, a person smoking a carton a week is spending over 200 dollars per month on cigarettes. That's a car payment if you think about it. How much do you spend and what else could you do with that money? In one year you could surely travel somewhere nice, even spending on the low end for smoking. Maybe you could save enough in two or three years for a down payment to a new home? If you think about it, the cost of smoking is that much money being spent yearly.
Hopefully, you saw a few reasons that are important enough to you to quit smoking. Think of your friends, the quality of dates you may go on and simply the money you spend each year. That alone is enough to start a new life to which you will be healthier, happier and smiling when you realize what you have accomplished by quitting.
