ВзаимодействиеLet me tell you how I quit smoking when I was 16.

It was one of many parties. Before that, I had smoked since I was a little kid (I used to steal cigarettes from my father).

I had been smoking for about 8 years.

So there we were, sitting with a girl who was 4 years older than me, smoking. And I say to her, you know, I'm done, starting tomorrow I don't smoke.

It's been 18 years. (Sometimes I used to have a cigarette when I was drunk, but I never bought a single cigarette).

That's my point. It takes willpower and understanding.с другими людьми
