MiSt.

smoking anything is bad for ur lung. u smoke in hot steam which burnes the flesh and causes cancer.

smoking = damaging ur whole body, lung, heart, brain, blood ciculation, etc

especially the long term dmg is higher then the short term. the more u smoke the more poison in ur body. and the older u get, the less ur body can resist and fight it. also, the more there is, the harder for the body to fight it. anything bad u put into ur body will stay there forever, just think of it like that. since some, even just a tiny little bit, of whatever we consume (yes smoking = consuming ^^) gets absorbed by the body.

dont believe in the "strong self-reperation-skills" of the body. if this would b true then there would b labels like "please dont smoke over 4345677 cigaretes because then the body cant repair itself after that amount."

on each and every person it has a different affect. i dont mean some1s body doesnt mind and some does. its just a bad affect or a more bad affect. there is nothing else. both will pay for it at some time. any harm u do to ur body the body will get back at you. the less harm, the longer u live, since ur body didnt waste so much of its energy dealing with all the sh1t u consumed.

also u have to look at ur genes and ur family history. if some1 in ur family (dad, mum, granparents, etc.) have had cancer or other ilnesses, due to the genes, u may also be a bit easier in getting cancer (might being born with a defect in ur genes or an adoption in ur genes that allows ur body easily to create cancer tissue...)

my grandparents had cancer (grandpa died from it), my dad had cancer, and i am likely to also have some.. not to have now, but that at some point i will have to deal with some health problem concerning cancer. there are many factors u have to look at.

simply..? smoking tobaco, weed, etc. (dont forget that many ppl mix weed with tobaco in a joint which is rly bad!!!!) is not good for u. not in short term and definetly not at long run!

wow.. that was a lot of text..

take care

According to the American Cancer society it takes 1-9 months for the cilia of the lungs to regrow. These are the small hairs that help you move mucous out of your lungs. Once that happens, your lungs will start to clear themselves (provided you don't have emphysema).

From my experience, with quitting cigs, I will noticed a major improvement in lung capacity within 6 months. Coming up to a year now, they feel almost back to normal. This could be due to the fact that I am doing more cardio now than I did before I ever started smoking.

If you want your lungs to improve, you have to quit smoking totally. I have found a few 'natural remedies' that have helped my lungs clear faster, and that took away some of the cravings (will power is most important though). If your interested, p.m. me and I'll give you some ideas on things that can help with the withdrawal and detox process.

Heh, sounds like you are living uni life the way I did. For a year. Before I got thrown out.

Cant have a go at you because a) aside from upsetting my parents, I had the best time of my life, and wouldnt change those stories and experiences for anything, and b) everyone gets a degree these days, so they do not give the advantage in the workplace that they used to, all they do is give you a 3 year extension on not joining the real world, so good luck to you

Now, to the actual question. Weed and tobacco smoke damage the lungs, even if you use a bong to 'purify' the smoke

How much and for how long will probably depend on individual genetic factors. My Dad has smoked since he was 14, and at 81 has good breathing and is fit and active. Plenty in those circumstances have died in their 40's or developed respiratory desease, so go figure.

I quit smoking everything (save for my christmas cigars)when I was 29. I found I was getting a bit 'wheezy' in the morning, and decided it was time. The first 3 months after that I developed a terrible cough as the lungs regenerated their ability to export all the cr4p I had dumped in them- some of the things I coughed up had heartbeats . From 3 months clean for the remainder of the year, my chest felt much more 'free' than it had in years, but I still had coughing fits after hard cardio sessions. 1 year clear onwards I felt absolutely fine in all conditions.

Just remember that you are riding your luck, and that is your right, but that some people's luck has less mileage than others.

I'd just like to point out that smoking cannabis does not infact cause cancer as many believe. Various governments have been trying to prove that it does for years and so far have only turned up evidence that it infact protects against cancer (due to killing aging cells which may otherwise become cancerous.) Of course if you mix it with tabacco then you are of course at increased risk of cancer.

That said, I'm not advocating smoking anything and do not smoke myself - Though I don't believe that marijuana is a particularly high risk drug, and have nothing against its use.

Any kind of smoke or lung irritant can cause cancer. Don't smoke - anything.

Two words. Bob Marley.

I am pro personal choice on this issue, but, just as with any drug, prescribed or otherwise, there are nagatives and risks as well as benefit.

I neither demonise it, nor tout it as some sort of health elixir, or wonder substance. Its a fun way to lose an afternoon, and it has the potential to damage the lungs and the chemical balance of the brain.

Weigh up the pleasure- to - risk ratio, and make a personal choice- just dont try and justify it either way with biased cod-science.
