:D I have been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and am in the process of having treatment, my question to you is ; i am still smoking as usual and although i was originally told by the doctors that its incurable, they are still willing to continue giving me another course of treatment, but by me smoking as i know that i do, am i damaging what chances i may have of beating this illness, or possibly prolonging my life ? I await you reply, thankyou

  • Enjoy your life as you are not dying but living...If you enjoy you're smoking then light up! My father died of pancreatic cancer at 57 and the only thing I regret is not giving him a smoke like he asked me for. Still regreting it 17 years later!

  • :) "Wow" that's heavy, my father died of this in 1959; he just could'nt lay off the juice. There are many reasons for contracting this foul condition, and not all related to booze. I remember working for a fella, that never at least not to my knowledge, ingested "anything harmful". Like they say, when your number's up it's up!. Now myself, have had various ailments, in my case it "is" the booze, that led to liver problems. So, i did some serious soul searching; & this is what happened. Most folks believe in a creator in one way or another, me personally chose the one that did indeed create me; his name is "***********t", the only begotton Son of God. Honestly i was afraid of eternal damnation, is'nt everyone?. Now i know in the whole of my being, that i now have a place in Heaven, for all of eternity! You want this too, unless you just don't care. Well Good Luck! Thank's Lee in seattle.

In the New Testament, the Gospel of John, chapter one, you will find plenty of attribution to *****t as involved in the creation. He is referred to as the "Word," or the second person of the Trinity, and the Bible says, "All things were made by Him , and without Him nothing was made that was made.."Thought we ought to get that straight. ****s, Himself, referred to Himself as One with the Father. Many other references.

  • Hi Susan - i'm sorry to hear you were diagnosed with cancer but I wouldn't give up any hope - I know of people who have been cure of pancreatic cancer - and many other cancers'. I would say smoking isn't going to affect how long you live too much so I wouldn't worry.
