If you are still looking for inspiration and reasons to quit smoking, today’s video just might do the trick.
Below is the video of a person who had his larynx removed after being in danger of throat cancer due to smoking. Typically, this surgery is considered to be a last resort in efforts to halt the cancer, and it is literally a matter of life and death so not to be taken lightly.
These days we do have some advanced pieces of technology called electrolarynxes which help you retain some sort of communication. But back in the ’60s, this technology was non-existent, thus you hear the person struggle to speak in this disturbing video.
Imagine living your life like this, unable to even speak with those around you. Sounds like a script from a horror movie, but then again so is smoking.
