Since cancer has wreaked havoc on my family members and friends over the years, I have a serious dislike of cigarette smoking. Most everyone I know who has died of cancer was a smokers (connect the dots)..
Many people still smoke even though they have lost friends and loved ones to cancer. evidently, they just don’t get it.
Like I said before just connect the dots, it’s a “no-brainer”, or it should be!
If I know someone is a smoker when they come to my gym, i normally refuse to train them because I already they are not serious about getting healthy and fit. The only exception I make is if after I explain to them why I call cigarettes
“orphan-makers” (People with kids or teens who smoke are in the process of making them orphans) and they agree to quit before they start training, I can help them keep that commitment by how I program their training. A cigarette will become the last thing they would ever want!
I cannot physically stop them from sucking burning weeds into their lungs,
but I can help build the desire to quit for good in them.
I could care less about “political correctness”, I care about seeing kids and teens have their parents in good health.
If this ticks of smokers, that’s too bad. Give your kids a break and quit smoking.
