Good Lung. Bad Lung. 21 November 2005

good lung. bad lung.Smoking.

Sadly, I am hooked to it. Please don’t ask me why, I’ll spare you the whole sob story. Teeheehee. But no, it wasn’t peer pressure but I do have my reasons. Anyway, I only picked up the nasty habit a few years ago. I can’t say I’m a chain-smoker but I do smoke 5 sticks on average. Is that bad? Oh, well… I’ve been hit by various kinds of bronchitis, mind you. However, stubborn ol’me, I’m still puffing those ziggies. Crazy, huh?

I do plan to quit one day. Honest. I’m just waiting for that certain something, which I simply refuse to disclose to anyone, to happen in my life then, as sure as the sun will rise, I’ll say good-bye to cigarettes for good. But for now, it keeps me company. End of discussion.

I won’t try to justify the act because it’s pointless. It’s just simply wrong. I’m not talking about morally but I’m merely stating that it’s basically unhealthy. It does literally kills your lungs ergo it kills you. So, you do need your lungs to breathe, right? Stupid question. I’m sure everyone knows how vital that organ is to our very existence so I wouldn’t even bother going into it anymore.

Looking at the photo makes me curious about how my lungs look like right now. Ack. I changed my mind. I’ve decided, I wouldn’t want to know after all.

Hi Sasha, I am Shin, who said hi in Skype.
I am a male, one year older than you.
I was fascinated by your writing…and agree a lot on your
views on relationships with men! I have been living in Manila
since last 4 years and what you have experienced in men
is something I fully agree with, but was not sure if it was
limited to men in Philippines.
Well, about smoking, you are a very light smoker….ahahaha,,,,
there is absolutely nothing wrong with that for decades, as far
as health is concerned…!!!
What is bad for health is a pack of cigarrattes over 20 years!
Mail me if you have time for it; I am also on Skype.

Shin: Hi back. Thanks for letting me know that I’ve managed to entertain you with my writing and that you agree [picture me surprised!] with my theories on men and relationships. And no, my views aren’t limited to Filipino men.

You’ve been in Manila for 4 years now, huh? Where ’bouts are you from? I hope you’re finding my country tolerable if not enjoyable.

About smoking, it’s still a bad habit I’ll drop soon. Hehehe.

Anyway, thanks for dropping by.
