World over the mobile phone use is increasing with each passing day. According to the ITU there are over 6 billion mobile phone connections all over the world and the number of users is more than 3 billion.

I quit smoking today

Yes, I did that today, I quit smoking for good. I kicked that butt for good. I am not going to smoke anymore. It was epiphany I guess that led me to it. I have given up smoking a dozen or more times in the past three years. But I just could not give it up. But you know, the good thing is that I did not give up on giving up. So I decided to blog about it. I didn’t mind the money spent on smoking, I didn’t mind ruining my health nor the smell of it. It was a few encouraging words from a nice friend that led me to quit smoking. But now I am happy, I will not waste anymore money, I won’t smell as bad as an ashtray and I won’t suffer from lung diseases. If you are reading this and you are a smoker please consider giving it up. It simply isn’t worth it. You will live longer, you will be healthy and you die happy. Here’s a photo of the crumpled cigarette pack that I threw in the dust bin early morning, today. Best wishes.
