Weekend read: I’m a smoker who doesn’t smoke

This week, I’ve chosen a great Comment is Free article by Victoria Coren, outlining her experience of giving up smoking. I think it’s instructive both for Public Health people like me, and probably to some degree for smokers.

The great draw-quote for me was this: “People would point out the health risks (as though they might not have occurred to me, despite most of my family dying from cancer), without understanding that the health risks didn’t matter because I cared more about smoking than I did about living.”

It’s well worth a read!
