Apparently our soon-to-be-leader is still smoking cigarettes! The Happy Hospitalist is having a debate on whether or not it's our business.
Personally, I don't understand why any intelligent person would smoke. I've never smoked cigarettes; I think they're gross. I've tried them, but ew. Blech. My mother, a nurse, smoked for years (and still does, despite having stage IV colon cancer). My sister smoked too, and watching her quit made me realize how difficult it is. When she was quitting, she would call me from payphones crying about how she couldn't believe she could never have a "smoky treat" again. It was very hard for her, and she ultimately had to use Zyban to quit. She stopped and has never smoked since. Smoking causes so many health problems, it smells, and it's a disgusting habit. I don't understand WHY anyone would ever start in this day and age.
THAT SAID: It's none of our business if the President smokes. And, I know from experience: Haranguing him to quit will not work. He's been under a lot of stress lately. He knows it's bad to smoke. He'll quit on his own.
Let's just hope he'll go outside the White House to light up!
