to advocate smoking, or to downplay the risk is criminal at best. typical of liberal contrarian thinking, whereby people need not strive for anything and merely wait for some magical answer to thier problems.
i lost my father to cigarettes, and help people via hypnosis and cognitive therapy to break free from years of health abuse, so when i read this kind of thing being published by professional people it makes me wonder what planet they must live on.
then i remember they are from quebec.
a school child can tell you why cigarettes are bad for you and that you should stop as best you can and as quickly as possibly so that you can save your lungs.
apparently people from quebec are different from you and i.
