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!
