Killing over five million people a year

November 24, 2004

Researchers at Harvard and Queensland have calculated that smoking is bumping off around 5m people a year

Place all those dead people side-by-side in coffins 2 feed wide, and it would stretch nearly 1,900 miles.  Start digging!  And be ready to do it again next year, and the next, and the year after that. And so on until…

Well, I don’t really know when it’s going to stop.

No, I’m not pitching for anti-smoking laws.  But for gossake, put out that cigarette. 

On the other hand, maybe Al Qaeda just needs to chill out with a nice, relaxing smoke.

    As of yesterday it’s been three months since I had my last cigarette!  Ha!  In your face to all the people who doubted me when I said that I can quit whenever I wanted to.
