Re: More than 10 years = too late

hi humanChimney first off check around the web .. most sites say that within 10 - 15 years of quitting you can reduce chances of cancer from half - almost that of a non smoker ... second, did your doctor run tests on you or how did he come up to the conclusion that he is 100% correct that you will have cancer at age 45? third, although chances of getting cancer are defatly higher in smokers .. it dosen't mean you should not quit .. who knows what will happen .. stop smoking start exercising ... unless you doc is basing his prediction off of tests he has done to you ... i defiantly would not take those percentages to heart . do some more research. and most importantly .. stop smoking...
