A lot of smokers are willing to perform superhuman feats of mental gymnastics to justify their habit.
My colleague has used the following:
* there's a Japanese man who's in his 100's claims he smokes and drinks and attributes those to his longevity
* citing an obscure study mentioning there's no link between cancer and smoking
* saying cancer is due to genetics and if you don't have the genes, smoking won't lead to cancer
* saying smoking makes him more alert which makes him more productive at work
You get the idea.
