Keith Richards Heading For A Serious Health Issue



Written by Rupert Kircz| Saturday, 06 February 2010| There are 8 comments

Keith Richards should go and visit a cancer ward

Keith Richards is taking a very different attitude to smoking compared to his fellow Rolling Stones band member Mick Jagger. Whereas Mick is telling anyone who will listen that smoking is bad for you (including Joss Stone), Keith is still puffing away and has no intention of quitting. Despite the fact that he is 66 years old and even experienced a brain hemorrhage a few years ago after a boozy holiday the only concession he has made to his health and his lifestyle is to cut back on drinking a little bit.

Keith claims that smoking is now his only vice and that his drug days are long behind him. The sad thing about his situation is that he is trying to be rational about an irrational situation. The fact that he has been smoking all his life means that the chances of him suffering from a life threatening smoking related illness are very high at the moment and that if he quit now he would experience significant health benefits almost immediately.

It's all very well to have a "rock 'n' roll" attitude to smoking but all of his bravado and devil may care attitude will evaporate into thin air the day that the doctor informs him that he has lung cancer or emphysema or any serious illness for that matter. When the magnitude of his illness hits him he will wish he had not been so stupid as to continue smoking like he does now.

Keith Richards should go and visit a cancer ward and see people wired up with oxygen masks so that he can fully appreciate how bad his situation could get. Ukmedix News has written about how all smokers eventually regret their habit and wish that they had never lit up in the first place.

it´s only because this stupid-moralism kind of attitude that smokers don't want to give up smoking. So, don't call them stupid, nobody owns morality, smoking is neither «correct» or «incorrect», it is basically a health problem and an individual choice.

I think he's got the good genes (besides, his parents lived to an old age). If he got lung cancer, he'd be quite philosophical about it, I guess. But he could have been more discrete about his habit. He's definitely contributed to the glorification of tobacco in rock music, and in doing so, spreading the habit ...

A health scare usually helps motivate a person to stop smoking. Most people find it easy to stop, but the problem is staying stopped.

My father had a Doctor thta told him when he was 82 that it was time to stop smoking, that cigs. had taken 10 years off his life. My father said "Doc, you are right, but it's the last 10 and they arn't worth a damn anyway." Cigs killed my father, they killed John Wayne and they will kill Keith Richards too. At least he knows how he will die. How many people get to know that?
