    After many years of smoking and drinking it finally caught up to him. It was the first thing I heard that day waking up...

    He wasn't even in his late 40s and exercised regularly but I guess it didn't matter.

    My family is relieved he doesn't have to feel pain anymore but he's gone...

    I know its hard my fellow Sherbros but try to stop smoking as soon as you can, it's just not worth it in the long run.

    I hope cigarretes become illegal. A substance with miniscule benefits and so many documented dangers and side effects should not be allowed to be sold to this countries citizens.

    Sorry for your loss.

    I watched my dad die from smoking. Lung cancer. That's what motivated me to quit. I haven't touched one since July 6th, 2011. I never will again either.

    RIP to Uncle

    I have smoked, drank and chewed tobacco for 20 years now. I am in very good health. I get a checkup every 6 months. I don't really even exercise anymore, except for jew-jitsu.

    I guess I have just been "lucky" so far. I am sure I will probably go down the same road, eventually as Uncle. Hopefully, not before I hit 25,000 posts, though!

    Smoking doesn't just affect the longevity of life, but also the quality. I'm saying this as an ex smoker who started at 15. I actually quit because of jiu jitsu and I'm very satisfied with the results. Get sick a lot less, can breath a lot easier, cardio is better, and I have extra cash in my pocket. It reminds me of a quote I once heard about drug addiction: "People will put themselves through a lifetime of suffering to avoid a few weeks of pain".

    Also TS, I'm very sorry to hear about your loss. My prayers go out to you.

    Yeah, smoking sucks, but it takes a very storng person to quit. You have to quit cold turkey. None of the bs Chantix, patches or nicotine gum.

    I wouldn't say it's BS. The studies show that things like nicotine replacement and champix do help increase quit rates. But at the end of the day they only make it easier to quit, it still comes down to the individual to decide they seriously wanna quit. Deciding to quit cold turkey takes serious will power, and that's what you need to get over your addiction with or without the use of drugs.

    In any case more power to you amigo.
