I have been seeing quite a few stories about Eddie's health lately in the news feed on my phone. I guess he is in denial as to why he is having problems but it seems pretty clear to me being a former smoker myself for over 35 years and contracting Lung Cancer. There is no question in my mind as to where it came from.
I don't know if he still smokes or not but from what I have heard about him, he wasn't just a smoker, but a heavy smoker and a chain smoker where you use the last bit of one cigarette to light the next one and so on.

Since I was diagnosed, I have lost two good friends to Lung Cancer. The last was a fellow band mate. I just played at his Celebration of Life on Sunday at a local bar.
If you smoke. Do yourself, your family and your friends a favor and do whatever you can to quit because it's just not worth it no matter how much you enjoy it. Smoking kills.

PS: For me, it took being diagnosed with Lung Cancer to finally quit smoking. Don't be "that guy."

Good to hear from you. I know you mentioned this, but is seems like maybe 2 years ago? They have made great strides. I've been lucky so far, no serious medical issues, hope things go well for you.

My best friend, a smoker, died of colon cancer. I used to smoke, hell even right before I was in triathlons, long courses at that. I had tried to quit many times, but couldn't give it up. But my last smoke was on the day of my friends "Celebration of LIfe" 22 years ago. Not out of fear for myself, but because they had killed my best friend. I never even wanted one after that.
