I am sorry to hear of everyone's losses due to smoking and otherwise.  It is not easy dealing with loss no matter the cause.

Personally I have never smoked and never wanted to try, but I have seen the power of addiction for smoking (and other substances) working on others near and dear to me and it is painful to endure for everyone.

I wish the best and congratulations to those who have stopped and those who are trying to stop.  If others decide to keep smoking, I hope you stay healthy.
I went along totally agreeing with your entire comment, until I reached the last line. Hoping the impossible for anyone who refuses to believe what is now common knowledge is not going to do anything but add to their demise where staying healthy is not included, no matter what anyone wishes.

I will encourage someone to quit smoking but I am not going to try and make someone stop.  A person has to want to quit for themselves.  If someone continues to smoke, I do hope they never suffer the consequences of smoking.  I don't wish ill health for anyone's actions.  Unfortunately, it is the risk a person takes when continuing to smoke.

Yes, the science is there, and we know this, but I don't wish ill health on anyone no matter what.  That doesn't mean i am promoting a person to smoke,  but wishing them good luck with that choice while knowing what smoking can lead to.

I get what you're saying oldbuddy, however, hoping that someone stays healthy is not out of line. Because all people do pass away at some time, and it can be at any given time, regardless if they smoke or not. Especially now with COVID in play. But my Dad was a smoker, who quit while in his 60's I believe, and lived to be 86. My Grandma (on my mom's side) was a smoker and quit in her 60's also I think, and lived to be 96. I have 3 siblings, 2 of us smoke, 2 do not and never have. However, my brother had many medical issues a few years back. He's still alive, but it really was touch and go for awhile. My youngest sister is a Vegan and has never smoked (to my knowledge). But she drinks alcohol more than any of the rest of us. I have 4 kids, all grown, 2 smoke, 2 do not. I smoke, and a few years ago, I really wanted to be a non-smoker, I had the perfect opportunity when I was in the hospital for a week. But I blew it, and it would've been difficult anyhow because 2 other people in the household smoked. Not impossible, but difficult. I hope I can be successful in becoming "a quitter" in the near future, but at this time I'm not trying. I even tried Chantix last year, and all it seemed to do is make me sick to my stomach. I just didn't have the will power to stick with it.

The exit is in the upper right corner of your browser and when put in a situation like that, I use it.
