One good reason to quit is cost. Youíll have more money if you give up tobacco. Of course, quitting also protects you from debilitating illness that can cost even more in the long run.

Speaking of debilitating Ė believe it or not smoking can have a profound, negative effect on a personís love life. In addition to making you smell bad, affecting your breathing, and wrinkling your skin, smoking can destroy blood vessels, especially tiny blood vessels, which can impede your sex life.

Smoking has been linked directly to sexual dysfunction in men, and it's believed to have a similar effect in women. One noted urologist, speaking on the news program 60 Minutes, said when he sees a man smoking, he wonders when -- not if -- he will experience erectile dysfunction.

Studies show that tobacco-users in general donít live as long as non-users.

Smoking makes its biggest assault on the lungs. People with Chronic Obstructed Pulmonary Disease or Emphysema often end up on oxygen and cannot live a normal life. Many can't walk a few feet without having to sit down and try to catch their breath. Cancer that starts in the lungs of many smokers can often have devastating effects, spreading throughout the body to involve the liver, kidneys, bones, and brain.

Actually, I have a problem as regards my overactive sex drive.

But, thanks, Mrs Anonymous, you've given me the cure!

I'm going to start smoking right away.

Wow, if the award-winning program 60 Minutes tells me that I should not smoke, I'd better stop right away...

Hey, they got pills for that erectile dysfunction stuff, so how much longer until they have a pill for cleaning out your lungs? Can't be long now...
