When we first started with cigarettes there was no problem. we could smoke a pack a day and still run like the wind or close to it. We had plenty of lung to absorb the oxygen. But, as years go by and 7280 cigarettes per year (assuming 1 pack per day). After just 5 years and 36400 cigarettes, our lung’s microscopic oxygen receptors has gotten clogged with tar and an aggregate of other chemicals.
We can’t run like the wind anymore without getting “winded”. Our lungs can’t absorb enough oxygen. As years go by a smoker has less and less oxygenated blood. Which leads to outer extremities such as hands and feet problems.
We start noticing we are having a bad relationship with cigarettes. We have outgrown our need for cigarettes. It’s time to move on. The tobacco industry was wrong, it’s not cool, smart, a friend, a relaxer. Yes it’s always there for you. waiting to do you in. How much have you paid into the multi-million dollar tobacco industry?
