Preventative Actions to Dramatically Decrease the Odds of Encouraging a Premature Death.
In other words, I just quit smoking again. For good this time.
The only worry that I have is, did I take too long to quit? I've chain-smoked tobacco cigarettes half my life. Is it too late?
Man, if I have cancer, i will be so annoyed.
So uh, Good Luck MD!
I hate it.
It is never too late.
your blood pressure and pulse rate decrease, and the body temperature of your hands and feet increase. Carbon monoxide in cigarette smoke reduces the blood’s ability to carry oxygen.
the carbon monoxide level in your blood decreases to normal. With the decrease in carbon monoxide, your blood oxygen level increases to normal.
your risk of having a heart attack decreases.
nerve endings start to regrow and the ability to smell and taste is enhanced.
your circulation improves, walking becomes easier and you don’t cough or wheeze as often. Phlegm production decreases. Within several months, you have significant improvement in lung function.
coughs, sinus congestion, fatigue and shortness of breath decrease as you continue to see significant improvement in lung function. Cilia, tiny hair-like structures that move mucus out of the lungs, regain normal function.
risk of coronary heart disease and heart attack is reduced to half that of a smoker.
your risk of having a stroke returns to that of a non-smoker.
your risk of lung cancer drops. Additionally, your risk of cancer of the mouth, throat, esophagus, bladder, kidney and pancreas decrease. Even after a decade of not smoking however, your risk of lung cancer remains higher than in people who have never smoked. Your risk of ulcer also decreases.
your risk of coronary heart disease and heart attack in similar to that of people who have never smoked. The risk of death returns to nearly the level of a non-smoker.
Need some stuff designed or printed? I can help with that.
I've never stopped a bad habit that I can recall, at least not for any appreciable length of time.
So good on ya man.
you're already dead
also the phone call was coming from inside your house
i take it that pores count
"congrats on the abortion!"
"I've seen you smoke."
"I don't smoke cigarettes."
I mean, if you've never smoked anything, you're going to cough and complain either way, but that's because dudes really probably shouldn't be inhaling smoke anyway
still, if I had to pick between the two
I'd grab the joint over the spliff any day
Like I bought this soap/shampoo/bubble bath
I never don't smell fantastic.
I have actually only had weed smoke.
It's not for me.
or drink alcohol
or do drugs
or you will die and go to hell
I enjoy whiskey and scotch and being buzzed is cool.
But just flat out drunk, no, I do not enjoy.
I do not enjoy not feeling in control. Which is why when I drop acid, it's going to be with my dad, because he is going to make tea and walk me through it. Because he knows and respects psychadelics and taught me they are very much not recreational substances.
I am still worried about my dad though, because he's still an almost a pack a day smoker.
I worry about her a lot.
Also my grandma just got diagnosed with lymphoma and she smokes all the time and it's like
Also, my grandma works with a lady who has a daughter with leukemia. One time there was a stretch where she didn't need any treatment for a while, so she got to come over for a birthday party
All the adults were smoking, and she ran over to them and they raised their cigarettes to the sky, embarrassed, so she didn't have to breathe in smoke
To which her mother called out "It's okay! She already has cancer."
I sort of like being shit faced sometimes
I'm pretty good at keeping control of myself when removed from my regular state of mind though
