In all seriousness you need to be conscientious when you decide to smoke. Know that there are very real risks involved. lung cancer and lung disease are statistically more likely if you smoke or are around second hand smoke a lot.
Actually the second hand thing has about as much scientific worth as a teletubbies rerun. Check the links I posted recently and read up on the matter. Other wise I concur that one should be as informed as possible when doing anything that carries a significant health risk.
