Via Facebook, more defamation of smokers:
Smoking may be a sign of psychiatric illness, says report, after a third of smokers are found to have a mental disorder
Smoking may be a sign of psychiatric illness, experts say. Doctors should routinely consider referring people who smoke to mental health services, in case they need treatment, they add.
I wonder how they decide what constitutes a ‘mental disorder’? Given that they say that 70% of smokers want to give up smoking, perhaps anyone who doesn’t want to give up smoking is deemed to be insane, and in need of ‘treatment’.
Anyway, it’s pretty clear that the suggestion being made here is that if one third of smokers have a ‘mental disorder’, then they probably all do.
The controversial recommendation from the British Lung Foundation, a charity, comes in response to a major report, Smoking and Mental Health, published this week by the Royal College of Physicians and the Royal College of Psychiatrists with the Faculty of Public Health. It says that almost one in three cigarettes smoked in Britain today is smoked by someone with a mental disorder. When people with drug and alcohol problems are included the proportion is even higher.
RCP, eh? No surprise there. The Royal College of Psychiatrists is a new one. Funny that its initials are RCP too.
Oh, and if you smoke grass or drink alcohol, that’s more evidence of ‘mental disorder’.
Professor Stephen Spiro, deputy chair of the British Lung Foundation, said persuading people with mental disorders to give up smoking was a major challenge. But so was identifying smokers who might need psychiatric treatment.
Stephen Spiro: that’s another name to add to the list of antismoking nutter doctors that need to be kicked out of the medical profession.
I sometimes wonder whether any of these little shits have any idea at all just how much they’re hated, and what’s likely to happen to them one day when the full fury is unleashed.
At the moment, they can cheerfully demonise and ostracise hundreds of millions of people all over the world, and keep their fat salaries and their big houses and their high status jobs. Because there’s no come-back. There’s nothing to restrain them from calling (as they have done) for smokers to be more or less expelled from society. They’re completely unaccountable. They haven’t, after all, been elected. They represent nobody except themselves and their poisonous medical subculture.
I don’t think that smokers have any mental disorder. Neither drinkers or dope smokers either. But I think these nutjob doctors do. Back in the 1960s when I encountered my first antismoking screw-loose doctor – Dr W -, I sort of assumed that he was a harmless one-off nutter. But these days it’s clear that he was only one of a whole army of the little bastards.
And we really are going to have to purge the medical profession from top to bottom to be rid of them. Thousands of them are just going to have to be kicked out. And some sort of oversight committee is going to have to be introduced to ensure they don’t ever creep back in.
Doctors are going to have to be taught that it’s not their job to create some sort of non-smoking, non-drinking master race, but to treat as best they can the maladies from which people suffer. That’s their job. Much like car mechanics fix people’s cars when they go wrong, without telling them how they should drive them. Anything else, and they’ve got too big for their boots.
It’s going to be terrible shock for Professor Stephen Spiro and his ilk when they’re stripped of their medical qualifications, and their professorships, and their jobs, and their good name, and they have to get jobs as meat packers in Polish horsemeat factories. But they shouldn’t be too surprised when that happens.
They set out to destroy us, but we will destroy them.
