    The tobacco in cigarettes hosts a bacterial bonanza � literally hundreds of different germs, including those responsible for many human illnesses, a new study finds.

      Are you suggesting the heat from the flame doesn't kill the bacteria?  Hmmmm

      I don't smoke, but I think Smokers have less to worry about bacteria than they do from the smoke itself.

      If quitting smoking was a guarantee, 100% that I would never die, then I might consider it. Since I have to die either way, and since there are no guarantees for how long I will live as a smoker or a non smoker...
      I'll just enjoy my life and whatever time I have.

      If your so worried about the 'risks' then I suggest you stop leaving your house, because you might die if you do, of course you might die slipping in the tub so showers and baths are out too.
      A bad batch of seafood could kill you, better take fish off the menu... mad cow disease...ok beef is gone too...

      You can't live and not die, and who wants to live forever.

      You must die of something, I'm trying to die of enjoyment.

    No,  I had my last smoke a few minutes before midnight on New Years Eve, and haven't had one since.  It isn't that  hard, and I have written some tips and hints on how to make it so easy that I was amazed at how little I craved to smoke.  I think about it once in a while, but I have tips for that too.  Read my hub on this subject, I suprised myself at how well it worked

    Nope, stopped smoking August of last year. I haven't yet heard of living organisms that will survive being vaporized, though. hmm

    I quit smoking in 2002 and haven't once since.

    And it was hell for a long time.
