RIP Mr. Norris.  I started smoking because of you.  I had the habit for 20 years because of you.  I smoked Marlboro Reds because of you.  I was trying to kill myself because of you.

Just kidding.  I smoked for 20 years because of me, no one else. No one twisted my arm.  Smoke free for 30 years now and a chest Xray 10 years ago showed no signs I had ever smoked.  I always found that hard to believe, but that is what they told me.  Who in hell knows.

And any man who may be asked ... what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: 'I served in the United States Navy." John F. Kennedy.   US Navy, fighting Radical Islamic Extremism since 1801.

That's good to hear.  Some not so lucky.  I had a friend who had stopped for 20 years....and still he ended up dying from lung cancer.   Mrs. Byrd was just diagnosed earlier this year with
emphysema.  She smoked like a chimney.  We both stopped smoking in 2012.  I started smoking at 16, in 1967.  So far my lungs are clear.  But I do have damage to kidneys from diabates
type 2.  I do three insulin shots a day.  I also have considerable
liver problems from a prolonged HEP C bout.  I was finally cured when I was used as a guinea pig for Gillead Sciences before Harvoni was even approved.  That, after undergoing two long
grueling Interferon treatments that were for naught.  Only salvation I had was that I haven't drank any alcohol (and stopped drug use) back in 1987.  Drinking alcohol with HEP C is as good as committing suicide.  I lost a good friend to liver cancer some years back.  He had HEP C also. He was only 55.  He stopped using drugs, too....but he just couldn't stop drinking.   Undecided

Wow, Birdie, you have had your share of battles.  Our prayer time will include both you and your wife. 

I think a lot of it is our genetics and predisposition to certain illnesses. We can help ourselves by doing a lot of the things in life right, but in the end, it comes down to the genes.
