For the Record, the Today Show has also hosted one Depak Chopra, who despite being a "doctor", wants people to believe that positive thought and his 19.99 dollar product can help YOU live a disease free life.

Taking medical advice from the Today Show is like taking relationship advice from a FARK Rape thread.

gopher321: Horseshiat. Smoking, even in your early years, not only threatens your health directly, but also amplifies any other medical conditions you may have and makes them worse.

Sorry, idiot, but the TODAY SHOW said it's OK to smoke. And the TODAY SHOW doesn't lie

Super Chronic: The Muthaship: Super Chronic: I still occasionally have dreams where I'm smoking

Do you get pissed at yourself?  I have those dreams, and while I am still dreaming I get mad at myself for smoking.  It's weird.

I don't know if "pissed" is the word.  There's a definite sense of "I'm supposed to have quit, and here I go again."  But it's uncomfortable, yeah.

You think that's uncomfortable?  You should try dreaming about having sex with a hated ex-wife.  You'll wake up in a cold sweat.

9 out of 10 doctors recommend not smoking, but 1 out of 10 doctors is a really cool guy just kicking back with a relaxing smoke.

I quit cold turkey (and cigarettes) at age 49, mainly because it seemed like it would be really depressing to be still smoking when I was 50. (How's THAT for a rationalization?)

However, I started after college and never went through more than half a pack a day and I kept up an exercise routine. Figure that one out, TODAY show experts.

Risk analysis does not work that way.
