Post Smoking is deadly!

This is very much a proven fact and is close to if not the leading cause of preventable death.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Preven...auses_of_death

Yes I have been a smoker on and off and have only called it quits for good four or five months ago. My reasoning was not just for health reasons, also financial, stuff costs a small fortune here at $1 a gram/per cig, also I no longer derived any pleasure from it's consumption and rarely ever did it was more of a habit and somewhat social thing to do. That said I got to say it was not pleasant quitting.

I'm hard so just went cold turkey and got to say those first few weeks I felt like the living dead.

brav-O, dude.
and you just reminded me of a trainspotting sequence!





but what scares me the most, in a sense, is not the self-damage of smoking and not 2nd-hand smoke, but the 3rd-hand smoke. that is, toxins which get embedded in to an environment over time, which affect people who smell not a WHIFF of cigarette smoke around them.

of course i'm definitely a sinner in my own right. booze does some amazing temporary things for me that makes it a true devil's brew, indeed.
