“It really bugs me that smoking is sooo stupid and yet apparently intelligent people carry on doing it.”

It really bugs me that smoking is sooo stupid and yet apparently intelligent people carry on doing it. It also really bugs me that people who espouse animal rights smoke when tobacco companies have killed millions of animals testing cigarettes. It also really pisses me off that so called anarchists who smoke seem to think that imposing their smelly, unhealthy habit on others is their right. Fuck that definition of freedom.
About 106,000 people in the UK die each year due to smoking. Smoking-related deaths are mainly due to cancers, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and heart disease.
About half of all smokers die from smoking-related diseases. If you are a long-term smoker, on average, your life expectancy is about 10 years less than a non-smoker. Put another way, in the UK about 8 in 10 non-smokers live past the age of 70, but only about half of long-term smokers live past 70. The younger you are when you start smoking, the more likely you are to smoke for longer and to die early from smoking.
Many smoking-related deaths are not ‘quick deaths’. For example, if you develop COPD you can expect several years of illness and distressing symptoms before you die.
Smoking increases the risk of developing a number of other diseases. Many of these may not be fatal, but they can cause years of unpleasant symptoms.
