To people who consider themselves "smokers" : when did you start, why did you start and could you quit now if you wanted to?
To non-smokers : what do you think of smoking and would you ever try??
I have really mixed opinions on the subject but generally I'm a real health freak so it is of no appeal to me.
Dedicated smoker since I was maybe 12. Going on thirty now so that makes about 2/3 of my life dumping tar into my lungs.
I've quit for as long as 6 months or so. Even now I don't smoke more than half pack a day or so. I'm not some chainsmoker but I do enjoy an occasional cig.
I like the calming feeling, much like I enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning. I've never really had it hold me back physically, I can keep up mtn biking or kayaking or jogging without getting winded. That's probably becuase I used to jog 5 miles a couple times a week though.
I try to be respectful though, not littering butts, standing away from non smokers, not smoking around kids and stuff like that.
I can read num nuts and Im far from a pretentious little kid.
You on the other hand seem to read imaginary things. Go ahead and quote the post where I said I have the right to tell other people what to do, ooo and find that other post that I said Im better than someone because they smoke.
O and im glad your female is a women. I think fucking a tranny might make people consider you gay or at least really weird.
"I would try and convince my friends to stop, you would be a bad friend not to."
"Out of habit is in no way a reason to smoke. You fucking stupid. GTFO"
"Smoking cigarettes is one of the stupidest things anyone can start doing."
You certainly do sound like a pretentious little kid who feels he has the right to tell people what to do with themselves.
Damn right my female's a women. But I do fuck tranny's too. I'm equal opportunity.
O shit! your right! Im Wrong! I forgot that Im not entitled to my opinion. Sorry let me rephrase that for you so as not to get confused and immediately hide behind the excuse that im just a little kid.
IN MY OPINION! YOU WOULD HAVE TO BE A REALLY SHITTY FRIEND AND A REALY SHITTY PERSON TO NOT MAKE SOME SORT OF EFFORT TO GET YOU "FRIEND" TO STOP SMOKING CANCER STICKS. I MEAN UNLESS YOU TRULEY WANT HIM TO DIE.
IN MY OPINION! YES THAT KID IS FUCKING STUPID. O I CUT MY WRISTS OUT OF HABIT, SO ITS OK. BESIDES IT RELAXES ME.
IN MY OPINION! SMOKING CIGARRETTES IS ONE OF THE STUPIDEST THINGS ANYONE CAN START DOING. ITS ADDICTIVE, YOU SMELL LIKE SHIT, YOUR WALLS TURN YELLOW, YOU SMELL LIKE SHIT, YOU PISS NON SMOKERS OFF ALMOST ALWAYS, YOUR BREATHE SMELLS LIKE SHIT, YOUR ALWAYS PISSED OFF UNLESS A CIG IS IN YOUR HAND AND YOU SMELL LIKE SHIT.
There, im done fucking with you. Its 4/20, and im not high.
No melt here. I think caps lock stressed emphasis.
Depends on your definition of critical thinking. If has anything to do with fractions or negatives, then ya I am most surely not capable.
To op. I've smoked swishers, newports, e-cigs, cigars, primetimes, oxy and weed.
Smoking is one of the dumbest things anyone can start doing, as I have said before. The reason I know this (Bob) is because almost every smoker I have talked to regrets it. I mean ya there is a good number of people who could give a rats ass about quitting, but even then, if you ask, most would tell you they wish they never started. ( Im talking people who smoke 2 packs a day and have been smoking for 20+ years)
I started smoking in high school because it was cool, now I smoke because I'm addicted and it feels nice. I'm aware its bad for me but I could care less. Don't tell you're friends to quit smoking its not you're lungs so fuck off. I just love when people tell me its bad for my health, no shit I never knew that fact before you told me. Smoking is the essence of freedom, you know it's bad for you but you choose do it anyways. fuck liberal pussy's.
It isn't you're body or you're choice, If thats the road they choose to take then let them suffer the consequences. There is a difference from offering help and spilling the same bullshit some one hears everyday.
compassion |kəmˈpa sh ən|
sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others : the victims should be treated with compassion. See note at mercy .
ORIGIN Middle English : via Old French from ecclesiastical Latin compassio(n-), from compati ‘suffer with.’
when i was in th first grade me and a friend were like AWW SMOKING COOL so we smoked some sticky notes and notecards. but those sucked so we stole real cigs and tried to smoke them and thought that we were real cool. smoked like 2. haven't smoked a cig since then
He quit maybe a decade ago, still tight but now he lives in the allagash of maine so I don't see him much. He's always had more willpower and general stubbornness though. Also I still enjoy it, he started goin heavier with it and would get bronchitis and shit.
im technicaly a nonsmoker but ill smoke at parties and have a cigarello on the chairlift from time to time.
The risks smoking, as with most things, have been overblown (especialy the risks of second hand smoke)...
not denying that its dangerous you but having a cigarette/cigar occasionally wont kill you. also if someone wants to be a habitual smoker then all the power to them, smokers arent stupid; they know what health risks smoking poses so taxing cigarettes isnt gonna solve anything.
