A family member is in ITU - broken ribs/punctured lung...on a ventilator. fighting for his life...he stopped smoking 10 (TEN) years ago but according to the doctors/nurses he is still classified as a smoker due to reduced lung capacity/scarring/debris.
What ever happened to the promise of pink lungs...is this a myth??? What about the promises of reduced heart disease??? More energy??? my arse!!!
The stop smoking timeline is a complete fabrication...propaganda with good intentions...see the famous thread . I'll probably be called worse names than I called francob for dispelling the myths...the truth is we've all fcuked our bodies/lungs for a very long time...stopping will not miraculously reverse the damage, however it will stop further damage being done, though we may contract gluttony and/or depression as a helpful side effect.
The nicodemon is not the honey monster...its is the devil/sauron/amnizu...incidious but only to make tobacco companies richer (UK government gets lots of money in duty/tax but pays out way more in healthcare).
I really do not want to publish a big downer but stopping is a bitch and everyone on this arduous journey (think frodo in mordor x10x10) needs to know.
Kudos to anyone who got the Therapy? reference
