"I smoke. You patient will get cancer if he gets my blood." One of my classmates even said- "It's my blood. I won't donate. Stop irritating me!" I just smile then on his ignorance. 1 year later, many of the the lean girls of his class were donating. He came up and donated. Today he's a regular donor. I think the most common answer is- "Look at me. I'm so weak. I myself need blood.."
