THURSDAY THIRTEEN - Poor Smokers

Photobucket
more participants here at new THURSDAY THIRTEEN

Yesterdy evening we watched a crime story, an old movie from the 70th. First thing I stated, everybody smoked ! The murderer, the attorney, the police, the judge, the nurses and the doctors and they smoked everywhere. The only one who didn't smoke and for an evident reason was the victim, he was dead.

Today each and every bad thing in your life is due to the cigarette. Here are 13 things you get when you smoke !

1. Your hair becomes grey and falls out
2. your nails break
3. Your partner runs away
4. You get a cold because you have to smoke outside
5. You make car accidents
6. You get malaria
7. Your blood pressure is too high
8. Your blood pressure is too low
9. Your teeth fall out
10. You get the pest (at least you have this impression)
11. Your dog gets pneumonia
12. Your cat too
13. Funeral prices increased

I have never smoked but did a lot of passive smoking when I was young as both my parents smoked. Glad to see the cat or dog is not smoking.

So am I!! It's been four or five years since I quit and I'm so glad I don't have to stand outside in the cold and the rain, just to get my dose of nicotine!

I gave up smoking years ago and I'm so glad I did. I couldn't afford to smoke now. The Govt taxes on tobacco are so high the price is incredible. I'd rather have a good bottle of wine.

I am so glad I never started! I was around a lot of smokers growing up, my parents and all of my friends smoked, but It was one thing I would never do.

Brenda ND said...

Yeah, those old movies do have a lot of smoking in them and it seems really strange. Thank goodness you don't see in real life as much as you see smoking in movies. Happy TT!

You really need to encourage your kitty to stop smoking. ;)

Times have changed, that's for sure. Smokers used to be the majority, now they're the minority. Smokin' list! *wink
Happy T13!

The last tv commercials for cigarettes were when I was very young; but there were still giant billboards advertising them into my teens. I don't think my daughter has ever seen any kind of cigarette advertising.

I have smoked several years and had to stop just for my health. Pierre had stopped but the daughters know he smokes again but not in front of me as he doesn't want i smoke again as he remenbers I was so sick. I don't speak about that to him. I prefer he smokes a little and be nice not so nervous!

My sister maintains that smoking is good for her as long as she smokes pure tobacco. Says the additives is what is a problem. I'm happily a non-smoker.

Dr.John said...

I never smoked. My parents didn't smoke. My grandmother smoked.
I should have had your list to show her. She might have lived longer.
