Being twinged, even after SO many years of not smoking....

Oh yes, I was a smoker.
I started in the Army, and continued for a lot of years.
But I quit about 15 years ago.

Yet when I read a story in The New York Times that a ban on menthol was coming, I had a little twinge of regret....missing something I haven't experienced in a very long time...something that won't truly be banned for two years or's that for a long-lived addiction?

If someone gave me a cigarette of the same menthol brand I used to smoke right now....before bedtime I would be out buying two packs.

If you don't smoke, don't start.
If you, try to quit.
Added incentive: a carton cost over $100 in many big cities now.
