SMOKING and diving

When I dive, I notice A LOT of divers smoke. I have never smoked a day in my life, and I can’t help but wonder, if you are getting such wonderful pure air, why on earth would anyone pollute their lungs with smoke RIGHT AFTER? Not to mention diving with smoky, holey lungs could one day prove dangerous?!

[Choose #3] not to mention that anything that constricts the blood vessels interferes with offgassing, read: increased risk of "bends".
