The Thirty Year Smoking Plan

“It’s interesting to keep in mind, if you smoke cigarettes, the lung cancer risk doesn’t go up for 30 years. And that’s a really powerful carcinogen. A lot of things don’t show up for several decades.”
— Some doctor, in an article which is actually about how artificial sweeteners will kill you with the cancer, but I don’t care about that right now. My takeaway is: thirty years! I can smoke for another four years and get away scot-free! Time to go celebrate with a cigarette. It’s not going to hurt me any!
