I can't argue with that... but that being said, smoking certainly wouldn't have helped Docs stroke. Let's just all be thankful that Doc survived
and leave the debates and negativity at the door for this particular thread!
i say....half truths need to be exposed, & such is the case by blaming smoking directly, just bad science as the Dr. postulated it was a chunk-a
plaque that broke off a clogged artery or something.
but i also think that quitting the smoking habit is beneficial, i'm uncertain on the nicotene though, i guess we'll see in time as those electronic
cigarettes get more useage among the population.
i too was a smoker for ? 30+ yrs?... and the smokes didn;t cause my stroke/hemorrhage, it was a result of a black widow bite
on my left big
i only tried twice to quit, (my end-it low point) was the pinch-in-the-chest, and the realization that i was
hooked despite my rationalizations
it must have been Dec 2001 that my 2nd try at quitting actually worked out, ~ funny thing is i still have two free cartons of 'Dorals' stashed in a
closet, i had sent in like 200 coupons per carton at some Doral promotion... one regular/one menthol...
I will keep those puppies for trading when the money system breaks down completely.
if you are old enough to recall, the 'Raleigh' cigarette brand also used to have coupons in the pack & in the carton, i had a bank money sack filled
with just the carton-coupons & several shoe boxes of pack coupons when i was hospitalized in '72....my ex cashed in those puppies for well over $150
cash @ 1/10 of 1 cent apiece, so smoking had a hidden benefit in my cases...don't know about yours or the others
hope Doc V doesn't have bad results from his
but in the world of Zen... struggles are to be accepted
