Oh Damn! And just when I think I have persuaded my daughter and son-in-law to quit, they will find any excuse to continue. 

My daughter witnessed my mother's terrible death with heart and lung disease caused by smoking. My mother started smoking when she was 12 years old. Laura and my mother smoked together when Laura was in high school. Yet, Laura continues to take the risk. I hope she has a peaceful death; I fear she will die as my mother died. 

As for myself, I will just wrinkle up like an apple that wrinkles up and becomes compost. 

Sorry to hear that! Your daughter and son-in-law's motivated reasoning shows the power of the addiction!

As for you, I hope you'll be alive and active for quite some time!
