This is the best you addicts can come up with? I now know why the MINORITY is losing you idiots know not your enemy (me) you have no clue as to how far and what I am capable of. Those of you who happen to realize what it means that the group in ONE city grows daily now only 165 however what happens when it reaches 1065 or 10065? Keep babbling and acting childish and when the BANS become worse then who will laugh fools.
Our childish babble??? Now, that is really the pot calling the kettle black!!

Old man you sit and throw out your tired old rhetoric, over and over, then for a break - you start throwing out threats. No one takes you seriously Why, you may ask? Because you are so self centered that you think the world revolves around your tired vicious BS... sorry to inform you. It doesn't. The only purpose you serve is for others to blow off steam at an idiot that absolutely no one would defend. Because you alienate even the biggest die hard anti smoker, because they may be radical in their views on smoking, and, smokers but, they believe in America, and, the freedoms it provides.

So little man, keep spouting your anti American rhetoric, but, remember one thing... Smoker, non-smoker, or anti smoker... we are all Americans. and, damn proud of it!!

Per the OPRAH show on Labor Day, a lot of COPD is actually caused by dust mites! Anywhere the skin can fall off at, is an area to do extra cleaning.

COPD is the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. When you say 5% of all deaths (in the US ) that would include non smokers as well as smokers.If you are a hard core smoker you have a 20% chance of death from COPD. To me that is no small blip. Given that smoking causes many more deaths from heart disease and lung cancer it becomes outlandish to call it,***<"only a blip" ***.. Chances are that one of the posters on this forum who smokes will suffer and die from COPD.
Who will it be? linda, free-dum, sheri, B.J. or azmac? Remember 20%= one out of five.

could copd be a reflex from the body due to a long life of heavy breathing?? and rapid small breaths are the result of the respiratory system gone out of control to try and stop the loss of important gasses most animals breath very shallow through there nose unless like a dog one need to sweat through its mouth??
we are just a bunch of monkeys remember you dont here of them getting much emphysema!!!!
