From 1983 to 1986 I worked in a hospital laboratory and for the last two years I worked as a pathologist's assistant. Usually, this meant I had to clean up the tables after autopsies, but sometimes I was allowed to assist. And, there were quite a few organs sitting around in jars, and books upon books of images for me to see.
Once you've seen enough lungs from dead smokers, it's really, really hard to imagine why anyone would smoke.
