I climb for the challenge, for the cause, for myself.  I am a smoker. It is a vicious addiction.  I am an otherwise healthy adult and excericise regularlya nd vigourously. Three of my grandparents died from lung disease (caused by smoking) and numerous family members have been afflicted with emphasema, chronic bronchitus and asthma.  I still smoke, but keep trying to escape the addiction, and I WILL someday soon with the grace of God.  In the meantime, I climb!
