DJ Mac recently posted about smoking, recovery and mortality:
There’s not a lot of acknowledgement of the cruelest of ironies: that people in recovery from alcohol and other drug dependence will still die of addiction-related disease. The fact is that about one in two of them will develop fatal pathology like cancer or heart disease because of smoking. Others will be impaired by chronic, smoking-related conditions.
