WOW! sobering!!!<quoted text>
It is sad. Some even continue to smoke through a stroma (ventilator hole). They may have lost their larynx and/or other parts of the throat and they still smoke.
Jeez! you are right,
it's nothing short of mind numbing, I agree..
I was trying my best to see 'behind' it.. so to speak..
trying to see what drives a person THAT far.
Is it 'brain washing'- the need to STILL smoke
at ALL costs.. is it frustration?
is it 'habit' so deep rooted, NOTHING can change it.
Is it the final defiance???
I have come to the conclusion
one has to be 'there' ie> riddled with cancer
in order to fully realise where the person is 'at':
