My one good reason: John Kyame, 1954-1993. Cancer sucks, and it sucks to watch it kill your father when you're 14 years old. Even if you don't care about your health, stop smoking for the sake of your loved ones. We have to live with the memories of your suffering and death for the rest of our lives.

I smoked since I was 16:( One night I was having trouble breathing. It was scary and bad. I had to be admitted to the hospital. I told myself that if I didn't have emphysema, I would never smoke again. They asked me at the hospital if I smoked, I said no, I quit. They asked me when I quit, I said today. They laughed but I never smoked again!

As I stated in a comment for another article posted, stopping cigarette sales and people from smoking will not help air pollution.
Air pollution comes from chemical plants, cars, farmers spraying crops, cities spraying for mosquitos, pollen from trees, pesticides people spray on their fruit trees or gardens, fireplaces, and more. The secondhand smoke from cigarettes is minor. You will still have pollutions in the air you breathe.
You can no longer smoke in public places but you can drink all you want and get on the road and cause a fatal accident. A pack of cigarettes costs more than a beer at a restaurant, is taxed higher and this is discrimination. I don't smoke or drink but I find this ridiculous. Would you rather have a drunk on the road or someone who smokes?
One store not selling cigarettes anymore is stupid. It's not going to help stop air pollution.
Large chemical plants etc. need to have air pollutions better regulated. That's the only thing that will help, not stopping people from smoking with higher taxes!
Wake up people, fight big corporations not individual people!

I'm impressed when a company makes a stand for any health reasons. My whole family smoked when growing up and so I did too. I quit, twice. So glad I did, as above. So many reasons not to smoke. Your health and the health of others for a start. And it pollutes the air. Not to mention the mess those 'butts' make. Made of chemicals folks. Want to breathe easier? I say thanks CVS.

Good tips. TY Did not know about drinking water in the morning.

The only way I know to cook pumpkin is with lots of sugar, so that is why I don't eat it much. Any …

Thank you

Such a great idea! Except for the egg thing because there is a lot of cruelty in commercial egg farm…
