i smoke and my self esteem is fairly highHealth Question & Answer

I have been smoking for 31 years, and love my self quite a bit, but I do have some trivia for you.

When I worked for the county years ago, we use to have to take these terribly long and extensive tests on our competency, memory, and general intellect, I noticed every time we took these tests the smokers consistently took longer to complete the tests. The scores were in the same range as the non-smokers, it just took the smokers a substantial time longer to complete the tests. and always thought that was odd trivia.Health Question & Answer
