I imagine that was a big bloody switch!

Ha! Yes, it was a bit of a lifestyle change for me...

You'll be an ex-smoker before you know it!

perversely I gave up and my 10k time at bupa 10000 the other week saw an increase of 6 mins 25 secs! Go figure! 

There we have it.

Irrefutable proof that smoking is in fact good for you.

I think no one mentioned that:

there were studies of smokers on how much smoking affects VO2max. IIRC smoking takes 2-7% off VO2max, depending on years of smoking accumulated and how much cigs a day. Since I am a bad runner I'd rather not share my VO2max with smoking. Smells bad too...

Easy to google.

I stopped smoking in December 2012 by going cold turkey. Not touched one since.  I still get cravings now and then but they last a couple of minutes and that is it. i really cannot think of a good reason why i ever started in the first place and feel all-round healthier since i quit.

Do yourself a huge favour, quit smoking. The first couple of months are rough but it is so worth getting through them.

Good luck!
