It is about to skyrocket back up thanks to the FDA!
Smoking took my dad, and my mom's dad. Heckuva way to go. Grandpa suffered pretty badly. Dad was worse. Still breaks my heart to think about.
Good news whenever they report that smoking has decreased. Education is key, and raising taxes on cigarettes is a deterrent, too.
I smoked for 40 yrs. Did my first round of chemo while I was in the hospital for four days a couple weeks ago after they told me I had a mass on my lung and did a biopsy. Supposedly it hasn't spread yet. Been sick a lot. I go for the second round next week and they haven't said how many times yet. They're going to do radiation twice a day for a month but didn't say when that is going to start. I hope it all works out in the end but who knows. It has completely changed my life just like that. If you smoke, quit, plain and simple. Go to the doctor and get something for anxiety if that's what it takes. If you don't smoke, don't start. And that's all I have to say about cigarettes.
so basically, the things that make us unhappy causes us to smoke
