I quit smoking a few years ago. It was really hard to give up. I’d smoked just about a pack a day for nearly 15 years. I knew I wanted to quit for the last five but I just kept putting it off. Or I’d quit for a few days or weeks and then go back to it. I’ll never smoke again, because it’s too hard to quit!

My job. I’m a biochemist and I have an MBA, and I was working for a bitoech company called Invitrogen Life Technologies here in San Diego. I quit to try to do my own thing. It’s been about five years now since I quit. No looking back.

I quit my negative thinking in the workplace. I find that my best friend is a positive attitude. The best way to make it through the day is to have a positive attitude, all the time. I’m being politically correct — note that I did not say anything bad about the place I work!

This column. I’m passing the baton — this will be the last installment of “Off the Cuff” under my watch. Thanks to all who were open enough to participate during my “Cuff” tenure the past few years!
