This is true with machine testing, but people don’t smoke like machines. They become more efficient smokers by inhaling deeper and smoking more. "It’s just a matter of will power." Wrong. Nicotine in cigarettes is highly addictive, it is not easy but this addiction can be broken. "If you fail to quit the 1st time, you’ll never be able to quit." Wrong. On average it takes 8-10 attempts. You learn something new each time, so never give up.
