Longtime friends of my parents smoked for nearly 20 years before deciding that it was too expensive and too taxing on their health to continue, so they quit.  They've been off the junk for years and don't miss it.

It's not that they don't mind --  they're addicted. They don't perceive it as a choice. When I was smoking, I considered it a necessity. I would go without food before I would go without cigarettes. When I did finally quit, it was entirely for health-related reasons. Having more money was a nice bonus, but that's not why I quit. I quit driving 12 years before I quit smoking, and it was much easier to do.

Quitting drinking, pot, and porn was 1000% easier than quitting smoking. I don't even want to think about quitting caffeine!
