Even though I say, give it up for you, this following reason really stood out !
Love it and wanted to share it!!
“As an aside, the best anecdote I ever heard about someone who quit smoking was on the (superb) Radiolab podcast, by WNYC. Her name is Zelda and she smoked for thirty years. Smoking defined who she was. She smoked while she was pregnant.
Eventually, after 30 years of smoking and a few run-ins with her best friend (Mary), Zelda made a pronouncement – that she would give $5000 to the KKK if she ever smoked a cigarette again.
She never did. Because her disgust at the idea of giving so much money to such a filthy organisation burned hotter than her desire to smoke.
