I may chat about my books, what I'm writing or reading, or just general thoughts. You may read posts about my cats or just my crazy life in general. Comments are welcome, if anyone wants to interact with me. Maybe we can share war stories, whether it's writing related or just about life in general.

You probably won’t believe this – or maybe you would

There’s something about reading weird news that is more interesting than the normal stuff you get daily about random shootings, traffic accidents, and the like.

We all know smoking is bad for your health.  It causes cancer, wrinkles and other problems.  But I bet you didn’t know it makes your boobs sag.  I had to ask myself, is this for real?  Seriously?  And no, I’m not a smoker.  I’ve never heard this claim linked to smoking ever before.  I guess one never knows what will pop up on the news pages of the internet.  Comments anyone?

Watch this video for five weird reasons to stop smoking.  This stuff is usually never included in discussions about why people shouldn’t smoke.


  1. Really not that weird. It all makes sense to me. In fact I have a blog post that I keep pushing back about the relation to smoking and happiness. This has long been a theory of mine (partly based on my own periods when I smoked). I need to schedule that post someday soon since it's mostly ready to go and just needs a few tweaks.

    I'm far more tolerant of smoking these days (having gone through my smoking phases), but I still think it's a nasty habit that people are better off not doing.

    Take care!

    Tossing It Out

    1. Lee,

      I agree that people are better off not smoking. I tried it as a teenager but only smoked about three years. I know several people who just can't quit despite their relatives dying from smoking related problems. To me that would be a wake up call.

      Thankfully most of my friends aren't smokers and anyone who does want to indulge has to do it outside.

      You should finish your post on smoking.
