    I’m so laughing at this because in the mid-eighties the Army was pushing smoke free military. I said it will never happen and a couple of all knowing Commissioned Officers (Captains) told me I was stupid the Army will be smoke free by the year 2000. I told them the only way the Army will be smoke free if America is smoke free. Our military is a reflection of our civilian society.

    Now knowing today the health risks from smoking I think people that still do it are stupid. Oh and it’s not an addiction that’s the drug corporations hype pumping millions of dollars in advertising to make people believe its additive. Quit cold turkey, it’s easy just have some will-power.
