I didn't make a pledge to God, but I pledged my lungs I'd never smoke. They're all pink and squishy! I don't want them black and dusty. Oh yeah. It's possible to quit... it just (as the picnic basket addicted bear said) isn't easy to do so. Kicking any habit is tough, whether it be drinking, eating, smoking, or even shopping. Even Nail biting is tough to stop. But if you have the patience and will power to do it, then you can achieve your goal. Me? i have no patience. That's why my nails are so short, I can't scratch my back. Misinformed is right. There's a difference between Fred and Barney saying "Winston tastes good as a Cigarette should" (taking the magic out of cartoons, Fred was likely to die early anyway, due to the massive ammounts of meat they eat. They even pointed that out in one of the movies), and a dirty, nasty looking person smoking a cigarette in the forground of a kid's movie. But then again, i say, fiction is fiction... things like a villain smoking help add a gritty realism to the product. I once said that no wonder why they had to censor Sanji's cig in One Piece. In fact, the original Japanese version had him start smoking to look cool (at a very young age). That would give kids problems. But then again, they also had to censor a character named Captain Smoker, who actually is made out of smoke. And he's an antagonist.
