Wisdom is in the beholder's eyes

"If I'd known I was gonna live so long I'd taken better care of myself."

That is what my mother (82, soon 83) says everytime she has problems with her lungs or Throat, everytime she has problem with her heart or her pressure.

She began smoking when she was 16 and never stopped.
She smoked because at that time a woman smoker was a liberated woman.
That was what normal girls did'nt do and my mother didn't want to be a "normal girl".

She didn't understand that common wisdom and not fashion should teach how to live.

At that time most didn't know how unhealty smoking was and the few who knew had every interest to shut up.
At that time free speech didn't mean wide spread knowledge, and wide spread knowledge did't include free speech.

But today you can share your experience and prevent dangerous damage to your health.
You could use the Internet to share your wisdom.
They call it: Help others by sharing 1 piece of health wisdom at and surely this could be a good beginning.
OrganizedWisdom is a collaborative health information community, combining professional and user-generated health content with social networking technologies to help people make the most informed health decisions possible.
It is a place where individuals, families, health care providers and organizations come together to share wisdom, philosophies and lesson learned.

And the Internet, the most powerful mean of communication and sharing of ideas and experiences is also THIS.
