My parents smoked when I was a kid. I am not going into any problems that any of us children may have suffered do to their smoking. Both have cancer. My moms is in remission for the time being and my dad is dying of cancer. Their doctor has said that their smoking for 35+ years exacerbated their problems and their cancers would not have occurred or been as bad if they had not smoked.
In another question about smoking, many people have said it is not their place to judge a person if they smoke or not.
As someone who is losing her dad because he smoked, do you think I have the right to judge? As someone who has watched both of my parents suffer for YEARS, do I have the right to judge? As someone who has had to explain to her children that Papa is dying, do I have the right to judge?
YES I AM ANGRY!

As someone who responded to the question you are referring to, YES I do feel you have a right to judge. But in all honesty it was not your decision to make. It was theirs. They knew what could happen and didn't quit so it was their choice not yours. I am trying my hardest and am in the process of quitting once and for all. I am sorry your losing your father because of smoking, but it was his choice not yours and now he has to live with the consequences. I have had family die because of this awful disease and still can't help myself. It is an addiction and is one of the hardest to quit. I hope you find peace with whatever happens. GL and (HUGS)
