i am confident that most smokers persist whilst under a cloud of delusion; the good old 'it won't happen to me ' mental.
you hear tales of smokers caning 40 a day and living into their 80s..... you hear of healthy types dying in their 20s..... genetic variation has much to answer for, when providing an excuse to ignore the obvious.
i used to smoke about 15 ciggies a day, for a year or two. i then thought 'why?' and quit. but i kept caning the jazz fags for another 8 or 9 years. i smoked less for sure and enjoyed an 'alternative perspective' which i think has caused a permanent change in how i deal with this world (and for the better i must say; afterall it inspired my going to uni, such was my new inquisative nature!)
there are however, ways of minimising the damage smoking can cause. do not do it in association with other things. perfect example being after eating. smoke BEFORE instead!
do not do it whilst walking or disco dancing; the heightened respiration and blood flow, provoke a greater damage. do not do it when ailing a cold or flu. but such should be self regulating.
and finally, DO suffer your neuroses and worries that your time will come and you will feel like an absolute cunt, telling your family and friends that your stinky little habit has caused you to worry them with a case of the big C.
no one is immune; and nothing is worth doing if you cannot get away with it!
incidentally, you also get cancer from burnt toast. it isn't tobacco which creates tumours, but the carbon in the smoke! the worst thing of all, is burnt pig fat!
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
