reason #217 not to smoke
because somewhere down the the line, when you are in the funtime throws of stage 3 inoperable small-cell lung cancer, it will be sunny and 76 degrees out. and you will not be able to go out and lay in the sun, because your skin will be too sensitive to the uv (especially since the side effects of your cancer medication make you look and feel like the hot-tub victim from halloween II); and you will not have the energy to get out of bed, because you spent three hours upright the day before just walking and doing the things you used to take for granted; and you will be wondering if those sniffles are your nasal passages drying out from the breathing cannula again, or if it is the start of a fun-filled summer cold brought on by your shot-to-hell immunity system; and as much as they love you, your situation will infuriate your loved ones, who do not have your pain killers to numb them.

and i bet if you read this far, you don't smoke anyway.
