If Statement Causing Problems

Experts,

I have a fairly long T-SQL script that works perfectly until I try to put in a simple If statement (see attached code).

When it test whether @!i is not equal to 96, the script hangs on me.  Why would this be?
SET @i = 81
while  @i < 108
begin
	if @i <> 96
	Begin
		INSERT INTO dbo.HRAGroupAnswer (HragqID, HraaoID, Gotogroupquestion)
		VALUES (204, @i, NULL)  -- Question 4 
		SET @i = @i + 1
	end
end
