Smoking: I sat down one day with a legal pad and created a list off the top of my head and presented a list in less than an hour of 142 serious diseases related to smoking most of which could cause life ending events. This depends entirely how long you want to stick around and how much you love both yourself your life and how much you love your family and friends.

You tell me.: Live longer. Save the cost of cigarettes. Avoid bad breath & stench of off-gassing. Decrease risk of developing cancer, emphysema, hypertension, cardiovascular disease & ulcers, etc. Feel better.
