82. Who Are Those People, Though?

I was doing a respiratory system examination on this guy who frequently (about once a month) gets admitted in the general ward with complaints of breathlessness. He’s had COPD for a couple of years. Quite bad.

And he tells me that he isn’t going to quit smoking because God told him not to. When asked why he tells me that the people who are relying on him for their daily livelihood won’t survive if he stopped.

I went on to ask him if he meant the people at the cigarette factory or the health industry. He didn’t get the sarcasm, though.
