MikeL2 BS: Nicotine junkie dads & their descendants (26) RE: BS: Nicotine junkie dads & their descendants 18 Oct 18


My parents both smoked heavily as did most of the adults in our neighbourhood. We just got on with things and never thought about the effect of smoking.

I have never smoked - not even one.

Some years ago I was found to have cancer of the throat. The doctors at that time just did not believe me and said it was caused by smoking. Some doctors said that it could have been caused by secondary smoking.
At that time I had been playing in several groups and for many years in smoky pubs and clubs. So we believed this to be the cause.

Now it seems that my parents affected ( or should that be infected me? )
I have had other brushes with Cancer and have survived them all.

Today Is my birthday and my best present was a phone call from my GP to tell me that I was no longer a risk for Diabetes 2 and that my bloods are perfect. Ironically I received a phone call from the " Healthier Group "offering me a place on their next course.!!! My GP said I need not attend as I have found myself a life-style that works for me. I will be monitored by my Health centre quarterly.

It made my birthday even better and as I type this I have my Bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape by my side which will go down very nicely.

Cheers MikeL2
