Dude, you’re smoking. That’s not cool.
Just a friendly advice to the smokers and non-smokers there. We all know that cigarette smoking is dangerous to our health, but that warning on every cigarette pack doesn’t stop some of us— no, actually most of us, from smoking.

Besides cancer of the head, neck, and lungs, cigarettes are connected to cancers of the bladder, pancreas and cervix. Recent research even shows that even Leukemia and colorectal cancer is on the list.

The lists go on, but you can google it yourself IF you’re interested enough. All in all, smoking does give some of us a relief, but are we willing to trade those temporary relief to those numerous health-risks? You decide.
