Smoking Kills!

In this month’s Irish Pharmacist Belfast pharmacist Terry Maguire has one of the best lines about smoking that I have read in a long time.


Smoking remains a stupid thing to do, since it kills over 2,000 in Northern Ireland and some 6,000 on the Island each year, which beats the annual killing rate of our best paramilitaries in their hay days and it does this every year — no ceasefires.
