No. I have never smoked. I hate that habit, and what "it cost me"... My Mother.
My late Mother was life-long smoker. She eventually developed the disease, "Pulmonary Fibrosis". The doctors told her that her smoking
contributed to her development of the disease. She at first found that hard to believe, since she was a "light" smoker at just 8 cigarettes per day. Also, her cigarettes were of the "Light" variety ("Carlton 120 Ultra Lights").
There is no valid to reason to smoke in my opinion. It's not glamourous. It's not "cool". It's not healthy. However, it is literally "Money up in smoke"
