If I had ever considered smoking I wouldn't now

One of the things I will be researching at my job shortly will be the effect of acrolein on nasal cells. I did some preliminary research on what acrolein is and this is some scary stuff. Normal people are exposed by soking tobacco or breathing air containing tobacco smoke or automobile exhaust.
Preliminary research done by other people indicates that breathing large amounts damages the lungs (pulmonary edema) and could cause death. Breathing lower amounts may cause eye watering and burning of the nose and throat and a decreased breathing rate.
Reading the hazardous material fact sheet on acrolein reads like a death sentence "if any of this stuff touches your skin, take a shower." I can't wait to expose myself to this stuff! It's also a highly flammable and reactive chemical. woohoo

I have some relatives that still smoke and I pester them to stop. I just use the argument "OBVIOUSLY, you don't care about your health. So why not stop smoking because they're so damn expensive?"... I've actually got two of my relatives to quit!

I've never been so happy about a new a law as when my County enacted a ban against smoking in public buildings... particularly resteraunts. I can eat my food without smelling like an ashtray when I leave.



I'll never understand why anyone would start smoking in the first place.

Eat right, exercise regularly, die anyway.

Yep, a carton of cigarettes now costs more than it does to fill up my car. And people complain about gas prices.

You smokers need to put those $40 a month you spend on cigarettes into a gym membership - so you can live longer =)

you know, this kinda goes with's metalcords signature but You can do everything that you're supposed to: diet, exercise, don't drink, don't smoke, eat an apple a day, whatever, you will still end up in an urn or 6 feet under. IMHO I really don't want to get old. I know that sounds morbid, but I really don't see the point to life after about 65 years. Granted I (obviously) don't have grandkids and I'm sure that plays a big role, but in my eyes getting old=diseases, hospititals, shitting on my self, having people do everything for me because I'm too helpless. I just don't want to go out like that. In another point of view, for you smokers, with the advances in medicene that are made everyday hopefully in the next decade or so cancer wont be an issue, so smoke 'em if ya got 'em! lol

Just my 0.02 and the current economy thats about worthless

The one thing I really don't like about smoking... anyone around you that doesn't smoke is now forced too... You can't say that about drinking beer.

And by the way... getting older doesn't have to mean shitting on yourself and being helpless... my grandmother is getting close to 90, and she still cleans her house from top to bottom EVERY DAY!

Guess what she's never done in her lifetime....

Eat right, exercise regularly, die anyway.
