While it is shocking and scary to see what smoking can do to you (or at least what we're told smoking can do to you) it's not really effective.
We can show each other pictures of horrific car crashes and tell each other this is what driving cars does to one.
We can show each other pictures of the mangled bodies of mountain climbers and tell each other this is what mountain climbing does to one.
We can show each other pictures of maimed pedestrians and tell each other this is what walking in the street does to one.
And so on. I'm sure you get the idea. The point is, that death is around us. 24/7. We simply cannot live our lives in fear of what might happen. Yes,
not smoking reduces your chances of certain cancers - if we believe what we're being told. The key word being "reduces". There are many, many
people that doesn't smoke and still end up with bladder, throat, lung, etc. cancer without smoking or even living with someone that smokes. My
believe is that we are all destined to die on a specific day and time. And no amount of eating salads, not having sex, not smoking, not drinking, not
LIVING is going to prevent that. So, I know I'm going to die, some day; I may just as well go out enjoying a smoke whilst doing it.
