Once again, you are obviously pitting a much more extreme and difficult transition against smoking, where the two are not comperable.
I would essentially agree to all of those things. No, I have not lived
by all of them because it would be almost hopelessly hard. All we can do for now, is take smaller steps to reaching that goal.
On the other hand, I have sub-concsciously and harmlessy not smoked for my entire life. It's actually easier to be a non-smoker than to be a smoker.
You need to drop that argument.
This is partly about moriality, and it's partly about practicality.
