Life is more fun when you challenge yourself. So, readers, are you up for it?
Today is the annual Great American Smoke-Out, the best day of the year to quit smoking.

3 good reasons to quit:
- a smoker will likely die of cancer or heart disease caused by smoking. fine, you say, it's your choice, your life. but your children and your family don't get to choose, and they will be greatly affected by your health. on average, smoking reduces your lifespan by 10 years. in those 10 years your kids might graduate from college, get married, have kids of their own.
- it's expensive. a pack a day at today's prices is over $2000 a year.
- you'll feel like a fucking rock star, for accomplishing something so challenging.

How to quit:
- pick a date
- make a list of reasons why you want to quit
- tell your friends you're quitting, and make them pressure you to follow through
- on your date, stop.
- plan out and give yourself a reward for the 1st day, 2nd day, 3rd day, 1st week, 2nd week, 1st month, 2nd month, 6th month, etc.
