Wife took me out today to the Casino and I see this older lady playing the slots 60s-70s maybe lift up her ball cap and scratch her head and she is bald as could be so I'm assuming she might be going through chemo. Later I walk by and she is digging out a smoke from her pack I about fell over!

Worked with another lady that had cancer and she kept smoking also a it came back on her man that just seems nuts to me that a person would not pick a longer life over a bad habit.

Maybe she is not doing chemo but I'm shocked at the amount of older folks that still smoke in these modern time with all we know about it.

Demon Nicotine had me by the Adam's Apple for decades. Been off it (Cope) for not quite 10 years totally.
My oldest sister smoked from about age 15 on. She came down with COPD bad at age 66....oxygen tank the last 8 months, along with the cigarettes she smoked nonstop until she died. Ditto my brother. He was 40.

Old people smoking doesn't baffle me as bad as young kids smoking. How stupid do you have to be to pick up smoking with all the info that is out there today. Not being able to kick a bad habit is one thing, but intentionally picking up one is another.

I was at the hospital enjoying a Marlboro in the smoke shack when an old whiskery guy with an oxygen tank wheeled up and lit up. Poof. Burned his whiskers and bad burns on his nose. The stink was so terrible I could barely finish mine.

And leave some here and there it was not intentional by the looks of it I'm just not qualified to diagnose her as I walk by I know it's hard to believe!

in the mid eighties PM figured out if sugar is added to tobacco, it makes nicotine 8x more addictive, according to news program I saw in early '90's

If you make it to your 70s and still smoke, you could probably care less if you die or not.

I don't smoke. Never did. But I don't care if others do. What I am sick of is the rules, laws, regulations, policies that are designed to control me. You make your decisions and I will make mine.

Is not wearing a seat belt or helmet stupid? I think so. But it isn't for you to tell me what to do. If you want to be stupid, do it. But don't tell me what I should be doing.

Politician have have always been on board with this. It gives them more power. They can impose fines, taxes, confiscate property.

I get speeding tickets a lot. I fight every one. The DA told the judge I was dangerous. I asked the DA to provide me with a list of all the injured and dead people and dollar amount of damage I had ever caused. The DA stood there like the slack jawed stooge he was. Judge threw out the case.

The point is just because you think something is stupid, dumb or reckless, doesn't mean it is. It may be, for you. It just your opinion, a fact that's seems al too often forgotten today.

It used to come down to this: What a man could do and what a man couldn't do.

The males in this country for the most part have forgotten or never knew how to be men.

Heck you can't even say what you want on this forum. We have to have "chaperones" or we might upset somebody! And hurting someone's feelings these days... Well that just makes you a criminal...

As for the lady smoking on an O2 tank, I would have offered her a light.

Watch the movie "Idiotocrasy".

I think if somebody using O2 wanted a light from myself, I would have slid it to her from a long way. One thing I never want to do is go BOOM!

I'm pretty sure that once you have been diagnosed with cancer you aren't too concerned with how that next cigarette is going to affect you. The time to quit is before that! wink

Ask a life insurance insurance agent if smoking shortens your life. Term rates can be double for smokers at some ages.

There is a good reason too.

Addiction is a B. That's just cigs. Imagine what a hard drug habit must be like to kick. It must be terrible.

Copenhagen had me for several years but I was too hard headed to let it be in control anymore. It still creeps into my mind like the devil though and that's just Copenhagen. I can't imagine what its like to have to try to quit something more serious than that. Prayers to whomever is trying to.
