    They could have at least provided ash trays.

    At least opiod abusers get their drug of choice, and don’t live nearly as long, even though nicotine IS more addictive.

    He’s a smoker, so of course he wants to be cremated.

    Smokers eventually run out of puff.

    Funny how most smokers think they’re immortal – "Won’t happen to me … "

    “A fire on one and and a fool on the other.” I smoked for 16 years. I won’t tell you how long ago I quit but the last cigarette I had was as I was getting ready to board an airplane in Seattle.

    When I was growing up,everyone smoked. It was the culture of the times.

    I began smoking at 12 years old – trying to look older than my years. I continued to smoke until I was 40, when I finally detoxified and quit for good.

    Now, almost 33 years later, I still get an occasional urge for a smoke. As any addict will tell you, getting rid of the physical craving is the easy part. The psychological craving never goes away completely.

    I quit in 1998 at the age of 46. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. You’re much better off not starting in the first place, particularly considering smoking cigarettes isn’t very enjoyable when you first start.

    Not much room for humor with this one. There is too much proof that figures from medical studies are more conservative than the actuality.

    As proof of absolute human folly, I know of several individuals who suffer from tobacco induced emphysema and who are on oxygen, but who also smoke most of a pack a day. Death is closing in and yet they continue to risk their lives and the lives of others by using open flame within a couple of feet of what can be described as an oxygen bomb.

    I always thought that STARTING to smoke was one of the stupidest decisions a person could possible make – short of jumping off a high cliff. At least jumping off a cliff does not adversely affect others.

    When the head of the CDC quits because she is found to have invested in tobacco stocks and the rallying cry of the present administration is down with regulation, it won’t be long before those vacancies are filled.

    My dad smoked for 20 yrs, quit in his mid 30’s. In his late 50’s had heart attacks and bladder cancer (BTW there is only one way to access the bladder) both of which he survived, barely. If you think MJ or vaping means you have quit smoking you are wrong. The lungs are not designed to deal with poisons being forced into them and you will pay for it decades down the road. Quit now, so you can spoil your grandchildren later.

    BTW, for those posting died X amount of years after quitting, remember, chances are incredibly high that they would have died much, much sooner if they had not quit smoking. The sooner a smoker quits, a few more days of enjoyable life can turn into years.

    The only time it’s too late to quit is when you are dead.
