              •  "My high school, an all-girl's Catholic school in a suburb south of Boston, had its very own smoking lounge. A note from your parents - authentic or forged - was all you needed for permission to smoke the day away... I took my first drag off a cigarette at the ripe old age of eight... when I was about 13, my best friend, Adra, and I started smoking at her house after school... Adra and I tried every brand of cigarette: More, Virginia Slims, Marlboro, Camel, Kent... Nobody smokes more than dancers. Dancers don't eat food; they inhale cigarettes. By the time I graduated, I was up to a pack a day... I began working as an actor and discovered I was wrong about something: Nobody smokes more than dancers except actors... In 2003 New York enacted the Clean Indoor Air Act, which prohibits smoking in bars and restaurants. I didn't mind, actually: It forced me to smoke less, at least when I'm having dinner with friends... I have tried to quit - a few times. But I usually give in at around day four, when I'm weeping at the drop of a hat and considering eating my steering wheel... I've now been smoking regularly for 20 years. That's just appalling... I plan on coming back from this trip smoke-free. And this much I know: I will be prouder of that accomplishment than anything I've ever done.", Quit Smoking Pro, Sep. 11, '08
              •  "'When I can't have one, I'm f---ed. I've found myself doing things I'm not proud of, like digging through the trash for a butt. Or smoking through bronchitis... During a five-minute break at work, I've had to make the decision: Should I pee, or should I smoke? I've tried to do both at the same time, and it's not very satisfying.' ER actress Maura Tierney is finding it hard to kick her 20-year cigarette habit", Starpulse, Sep. 20, '08
