Karri, I'm sure this is only a guide but I'm also sure smoking can take years off our lives even without cancer. I've saved just over one month of life after 16 months of not smoking so that's just over a year. I smoked for 52 years so if you say one month per year multiply that by 52 then if I had never smoked I would have gained 52 months of extra life which is 4 and a half years. So I suppose it's true it can take years off your life.

Well done lassie on getting back on the wagon.

I agree Karri. I always look at peoples stats and whilst `I suppose a week is better than not a week it doesn't seem all that much does it?

If it's not cancer or COPD then how is this figure calculated? Anyone know?


It's just good old-fashioned statistics based on average life expectancy of smokers and non-smokers.

It's certainly not a number that jumps out as nicely as money saved or fags not smoked.

I think what is more chilling is that 50% of all smokers will die due to their habit.

That is actually the proverbial toss of a coin!

What pleasure did we think we derived that possibly made that an acceptable risk? :(


Thanks Jack. Have down loaded it. Good to have a quick look at when a craving comes along. Thanks.:)
