Day 10: This time next year Rodney, we’ll be millionaires
While I was having one of my weaker moments contemplating starting up smoking again I decided to look up pictures of the internal organs of dead smokers.
You know, like the ones they have on cigarette packets of a healthy and a smoker lung next to each other.
The ones that we develop a blind spot for each time we light up.
Anyway, so I was looking at the pictures and I had the most excellent idea for a business. An app that you can turn to every time you want a cigarette.
It would have gruesome pictures of the damage you are doing to your body and then, once you’ve had your fill and are coming down from the craving, little games to play. How excellent would that be?
You may also want to watch:
While pursuing the mutilated organ pictures, I also learnt a couple of things. Apparently it takes your body eight hours for oxygen levels to return to normal after smoking.
It takes 24 hours for the carbon monoxide to be eliminated which is when your lungs start cleaning themselves.

This explains the painful cough I had on Tuesday of last week.
The helpful little yellow box also said that this is mucus coming out (gross) and other smoking debris.
What, like little bits of filter or tobacco that have just gone too far into enemy lines?
It makes me remember when I was at primary school and a kid told me about the girl that inhaled an apple seed and a tree grew in her lung.
Just thought I’d share that with you.
