We’d like to think that our knowledge on this subject is extensive. So extensive, in fact, that we can confidently say with absolute certainty that yes, Robert Pattinson does smoke. We know this because we’ve seen him do it. Or, rather, we’ve heard about it. On more than one occasion. In more than one place. All around the world. So, it would seem, he is a chain smoker. Or, perhaps, a classic dipstick. Meaning, he usually smokes when he’s bored, or hungover, or both. Although, it has to be said that a few months back, he did tweet that he quit smoking. So, maybe he’s trying to be trendy and vegan…?
Smoking Is Bad For Your Health, Your Pet’s Health And The Environment
There’s no getting around it. Smoking is bad for your health. And your pet’s health. And the environment. Every year, millions of dollars are spent on cigarettes. Hundreds of millions more are spent on veterinary care. Plus, there’s all the extra garbage that comes with it. The sad truth is that nearly 20% of the world’s population still smokes. And it’s predicted that this figure will grow exponentially in the next few years. Worldwide, it’s the #1 killer. And, as a result, it also claims over 4 million lives per year. That’s 84 lives per day. Every day. Just to satisfy your curiosity, here’s a short guide to the gruesome lifestyle of a chain smoker.
The Horror Of It All
Let’s face it. It’s not a pretty sight. Especially when it’s an older person who is hooked on the darn things and has no idea how dangerous they are. In many cases, the victim of a slow, painful death from cancer. It’s been well-established that smoking is bad for your health. And it’s not just the cancerous diseases that it causes. There’s numerous other health problems that it induces. Problems like emphysema and heart disease. In some instances, the addiction can be so strong that it’s virtually impossible to quit. Even then, the damage has already been done. In others, it’s a race against time. In which case, it’s best to just cut back as much as possible. And, in the end, it’s usually a drawn-out, painful illness. Or, in some cases, an unfortunate accident. Like the guy who got stuck in his car because he couldn’t stop smoking. Or, the woman who choked to death on a piece of metal that had been swallowed while her cigarette was still in her mouth.
How Do You Know When Your Pet Is Getting Sick?
You know your pet is getting sick when she starts acting differently. Or, when you notice a change in her health. However, this can be hard to pinpoint. In some instances, they can hide their illnesses well. Especially if they’re not too serious. Like a cough or cold. Or even if it’s something more sinister. Like parvovirus or canine distemper. These are both potentially lethal diseases. One of which can be incited by dog urine. Which also happens to be very toxic. So much so that it’s considered a dangerous substance. The point is that not all illnesses show up on X-ray or a blood test. Which is why it’s crucial to be observant of your pet’s behavior. Especially if they have a history of strange illnesses of their own. Like diarrhea or rashes. Things that may have been caused by an infection.
Why Does Robert Pattinson Smoke?
While some people may choose to hide their smoking, or at least try to conceal it, not everyone does. Robert Pattinson is no exception. In fact, he’s very open about it. And, as we’ve established, it’s something that he does very frequently. In fact, as you may have guessed, he’s a self-professed chain smoker. It seems he started off as a student, taking his studies very seriously. However, it was during this time that he became infatuated with cigarettes. Even now, he’s not sure why he started doing it. All he knows is that he just wanted to try it. And it wasn’t long before he was hooked. He continued to smoke even when he became an adult. And he eventually found it difficult to quit. Which leads us to our next point.
Trying To Quit Is Hard.
You would think that, at this point, Rob would know exactly what he’s doing to his body. And you’d be very much mistaken. Trying to quit is hard. Especially for those who have been smoking for a long time. It isn’t just about willpower. It takes will, determination, and a lot of patience. Which is why it’s so difficult for some people. Especially those who have developed serious addictions. Which brings us to our next point.
Is It Worth The Effort?
The decision to stop smoking is not one to be taken lightly. Especially if you’re accustomed to the taste of tobacco and the ease it brings. For those who have tried to stop, it’s been quite the battle. One that they are undoubtedly still fighting. Even then, it’s a struggle that some people succeed in. While others don’t even bother. Knowing that, as the old adage goes, quitting is hard. And, in many cases, it’s almost impossible to do. Especially if you’re a chain smoker. In some instances, it takes will, determination, and a lot of patience to be able to quit.
