I smoke and I like it, too. But I also know the risks, especially as I have gotten older and can count the years I have been sucking these things now
in decades. My brother was a smoker and quit... but he died of lung cancer ten years later. However, I'm still not sure that it wasn't the chemo
that killed him quicker and made his last days a living hell.
The world around us is filled with potential death, from the air we breathe to the foods we eat. So, yes... to a point, tobacco has become the
whipping boy and smokers, the new-age version of a leper colony. That's just how it is... if people want to judge you on whether or not you smoke,
the choice is theirs to make. I don't let it bother me and no... I don't blow smoke in anyone's face. I respect their rights more than they respect
I know that I am gonna die someday anyway and I'd rather go out with a smile than with pine cones and weeds as my last dinner, lol.
Yeah... that's cynical but that also, just who and what I am. So... shoot me... or not. (If you do, your gun will be confiscated and banned.)
