Quit puffing, start huffing

I quit smoking 29 years ago this month. Coincidentally, my daughter and I went to a Jazzercise class this a.m. This hour of hopping to hip hop, along with many, many other such classes I've attended through the years cuts this ex-smoker's chance of getting lung cancer by 37%.*
