Some consumers die anyways. Smoking and schizophrenia.

This is an old joke but it is medical joke so it may be in bad taste. It goes: The guy recovered from schizophrenia by his middle thirties but then died of lung cancer when he was 45. I mean, yes, schizophrenia is a major health problem but we have to make sure we don't smoke too much too. In fact I have smoked since I first got my diagnosis in the early 1980's. I wasn't a smoker when I wasn't schizophrenic.

Yeah interesting isn't it Pete. I know someone with schizophrenia who has given up for about 30 weeks now and saved all his smoke money. He's saved nearly $3000.00. So he is going to reward himself with a holiday. This is an interesting site: http://apt.rcpsych.org/cgi/content/full/6/5/327

Hope you and yours are well,
