Quitting smoking was hard for me, but looking and feeling like this wouldn't be much fun either. A die hard habit can equal a hard death. If you smoke, quit now.
A few weeks ago my professor, Don Seegmiller, told my digital painting class that our final project for this summer's was to create and submit an entry to this contest. I found that to be both ironic and sobering, as I was currently in the process of quitting. Researching and focusing on this assignment has been helpful in my attempt to quit; I still have the patch on my shoulder, and I still haven't touched a cigarette since my quit-date. I'm done with tobacco forever. Thanks Don.
