The Psyche of the Smoking MD: IS THERE A WAY OUT?

Why does it matter if doctors smoke or not?

This question is better answered from a philosophical standpoint rather than from a purely health perspective. Asking this question is like asking: Why would it matter if school teachers smoked or not? Why would it matter if parents smoked or not?

Firstly, we have to know first – whom does this matter to? Obviously, the behavior of not smoking is an actual setting of an example by the person who practices it or encourages it. The answer to this question lies in the fact that doctors have the role of being healers and champions of good health – people who advocate healthy lifestyle. Obviously, smoking is nowhere near having good health or having a healthy lifestyle. The issue here therefore rests on the trustworthiness and credibility of doctors in enhancing the patients’ good health. To put it simply – how can they advice their patients to take care of their health if they themselves do not “practice what they preach?” It’s not just a credibility issue – it’s a modeling issue
– one that in fact challenges the core of their trustworthiness as doctors and even the integrity of their profession. Read more.
