Ive wondered about this. In all the stuff ive seen on the news, i cant think of a single time that ive heard “quiting smoking now greatly reduces you chances of complications from covid”. You would think theyd be shoving it down our throats. Ive wondered if it does help fight covid or if smokers lungs are more equipped to fight it. If that were true, they sure as hell wouldnt say anything. It would undo 20 years of the war on tobacco over night.

Good point, Tyler.

Alkaloids perform some crazy functions in human physiology.
Both good and bad (anticancer, antibacterial, analgesics... {Heroin...})
It's also responsible for making cigars so addictively delicious. :)

I was pretty sure this was for cigarette smokers because it changes the environment for the virus and makes it not livable and not at 100% only like 64% and that is if the people dont have pneumonia, or other lung infections where the rate of infection is greatly increased.
