For those of us trying to stop smoking:
Perhaps this will be enough encouragement for some.
Gave up 10 years ago - still have the odd cigar, about once a year but that's about it.
I could easily start up again though - I find the craving never seems to go away.....
I don't think it's meant to be funny - I think it's meant to carry a point.
I gave up this year - been 7 months now. Don't think about them at all now, long may it continue :-)
I will try to ensure that future posts are not open to the same misinterpretation.
I again offer my apologies for any offence I may have caused.
Then the post is in the wrong forum, this is mean for jokes, funny things and various other related content.
I had a close friend die of Cancer, and irregardless of smoking, or any other form; Cancer is not a joke in the slightest.
DaveP: No need to apologise, you do as you wish, I just took offence to it, but thats fine, we don't all agree on everything :) Just, there may be people concious about cancer, or know someone thats passed away due to cancer
This forum is entitled Jokes & Interweb things - surely that image can be classed as an interweb thing.
I understand a lot of cancer cases have nothing to do with smoking - I've got family with the illness. But I also understand that a lot of cases are directly related to smoking, and I've also got family who's cancer is caused by this. I wish I could get them to give up smoking, but that's not going to happen.
I think the original post was not meant to make anybody laugh - it's meant to carry a certain level of truth. "If you smoke, you have a great risk of getting cancer".
The message is simple, don't read into it any more than that :)
