You see, smoking makes you want to back it up to right in your brain something is not good for your body. Smoking does an endless amount of proven
things to your body, just think of a few, asthma, emphysema, increases wrinkles, reduces the amount of oxygen supply to your brain, and of course
there is more. I have been a smoker for years, however, I have recently started smoking the ecig, too. It took me a bit to accept it, and I did
struggle a bit with making it my "new" way of smoking. I know the tricks your mind will play on you to argue, validate why you smoke, how it is
okay, how you are going to die anyway- and I also know the freeing feeling of not smoking anymore, and never wanting another paper cig again. There is
so many carcinogens released when you light that smoke up, it is crazy. I think the ecig is the way of the future, and it would not hurt my feeling if
the regular paper smokes became banned. They are more addicting then heroine, think about that, you can't help but to defend your "friend".
A lot of companies do nicotine test as part of pre-employment screening(medical facillities) and at first I was a bit shocked and angered over this
thought. But, it really makes sense, it is just too bad that even smoking the ecig can prohibit someone from getting a job. But, we have to evolve,
seriously, away from burning all those chemicals right into our blood streams.
And, yes, I had an uncle die from lung cancer, and he was a heavy smoker. And no, heavy drinkers do NOT live longer lives, a friend of mine from high
school was just buried(and yes I know others, and a guy my age, from high school is going through chemo from lung cancer(under 50 years old) and he
STILL smokes. So, you have control, that is the way to look at this most clearly, no one is telling anyone to quit smoking here.
Why do people come into threads that they do not agree with that are harmless theads just to post angry comments? Well, in this case, I know why. That
cigarette there, you will die defending. Will you get cancer? I do not know, but remember all the other things you REALLY CAN get from smoking,
including strokes, and heart attacks.
THe pictures are terrible, but hopefully it will help many to think twice about firing up, and really would be nice to get younger folks to quit
before even starting. I think cigarette smoking is so socially unaccepted anymore, that that alone is a major way to attempt to reprogram the stick
that controls all day, every day, one way or another.
