 Quit Smoking

 I have been opposed to smoking since the late 1950's, so some people take my stance on anti-smoking less seriously. Nevertheless, the data is more than sufficient to demonstrate the harmful effects on smoking and second-hand smoke, especially for those of us with IBMPFD (the mutation effects also cause problems with breathing).

 The following websites provide some help for those who want to quit:

 Potential cost that could be caused by tobacco use: https://www.fiscaltiger.com/what-is-the-true-cost-of-smoking/
