Anyone smoke once in a blue moon?

Of course lung Tx patients can never do it but what about the rest of you? Winston Churchill lived to be over 90 & smoked 6 cigars a day! I know he didn't have a transplant but some of us exercise a lot and have a strong heart & lungs.

Every few weeks I puff on a cigar or pipe & it's VERY relaxing. An hour of drinking is clearly worse on the body than an hour of smoking a cigar! I NEVER smoke cigarettes! Those have thousands of chemicals & are the WORST!

    • William, I assume you are a daily smoker? Remember I said a pipe or cigar once every few weeks.

      There's no way if you're otherwise healthy and exercise regularly that smoking a cigar or pipe even once a week for a couple hours will do any major damage.

      The key for me is I do NOT have an addictive personality so I don't have to worry about getting hooked. If someone has an addictive personality then they shouldn't smoke or drink.

      • William, a vice is basically a bad habit.
