Hi Mof, welcome to the forum and thanks for your post.

I do recall a research report indicating that gay people were more likely to be smokers than straights. Sadly I'm one of the guilty :(

But not for much longer. If I'm missing in action look for me in the "smoking cessation peer support" group here on Health24 (for you other smokers, scroll down the menu on the left).
