Studies by eminent psychologists show that happiness increases your lifespan.
Apparently, a happy, positive person can expect to live ten years longer.
Now, they claim smoking can knock five years off your life, though they don’t mention the figures for pipe smoking.
So if I quit the pipe, I am going to be miserable, because I enjoy it, and would miss it. That’s ten years gone.
I have decided not to quit, so that makes me happy and content. My ten years are back.
Smoking is possibly going to knock five years off that, but I’m still five years in profit.
Apparently [and I quote] “In terms of living longer and healthier, positive feelings are more important than body mass, smoking and exercise”
So I’m going to light up my pipe now and relax in my armchair.
In doing so, I am adding five years to my lifespan.
