Remember how they told us smoking was gonna kill us? Well....maybe, maybe not.

In the woods...
Funny y'all should mention this today.

I had some men building a stretch of fence on my place yesterday. I checked on them often to see if they needed anything or had questions.
At break time, they all had a smoke. I came VERY close to asking one for a smoke. I haven't had a cigarette in 20 years, but the aroma caused a craving I thought I had forgotten long ago.

On a side note, all three workers were white men between 45-60, NOT hispanic. It was cool for August and the build site was all shade. They busted their tails (while they told tales) and did a great job. Typical of the piney woods, between the three of them there were lots of tattoos and lots of missing teeth!

Even if it works I will pass on the addictive nicotine. I have my own all purpose virus destroyer which is a special elixir I make with silver infused water and 14mg worth of ginger along with a little raw, natural local honey. Sounds strange but it is a very ancient way of addressing viral problems. I drink it every day.

That’s odd to me.


I switched from Marlboros to vaping about 5 years ago and can’t stand the smell of smoke anymore. (Though I don’t say anything to smokers because I’m not an asshole that will walk to where they are just to make a scene about my minor olfactory inconvenience)

Yeah, nicotine sucks.

I, along with others, I'm sure, would like to hear the recipe for your elixir. Please share.

Although I'm a smoker, I certainly don't advocate to start smoking. If it's just the nicotine as the article seems to indicate, there are other means like gum or lozenges that you can get the nicotine. Then I would say, only take it when you may think you are coming down with COVID.

My apologies. I've known too many smokers dead of lung cancer to even click on a link about this. And from France at that?!


My best friend as a kid died of lung cancer at 21. Saddest funeral ever.

If you die of COVID so be it
If you die of long cancer because you smoked
to prevent COVID. You are still dead
Only you got to suffer a great deal longer

And the CDC is still gonna call it COVID

Huh? Although they used the phrase "smoker paradox" I don't believe the article even suggested smoking to prevent COVID.
