Today I am a Smoker

There was an article in the New York Times that said living one day in Beijing is equivalent to smoking 50 cigarettes. If you exercise outside, thats about 60 cigarettes.

Yesterday I played soccer outside with some fellow PiBers. I found that for the rest of the day I could not breathe deeply without spewing out a horrible hacking cough. I guess this is what the nicotine life is like. Kids, listen to your mamas, don't smoke and stay in school
