    Tried it a couple of times, fairly recently actually, but it hasn't "taken". Don't like it and find the smell pretty annoying at times.

    Ditto. If I pass some smokers on streets then I usually intentionally cough loudly to show how unpleasant they are.

    Great to see a lot of people here not smoking.
    But there's also two groups of smokers:
    The ones who enjoy smoking.
    The unfortunate ones who got stuck smoking may not be faulted for such criticism. However, I do think that even if you are unfortunate, you should stick to smoking where it does not harm others. Because smoking is the worst of legal drugs since it affects others.

    Of course. After all alcohol never affected anyone other than the one who drinks. And power lust never affected others either, and speed addicts are loving conscious people.

    There's also the prejudiced. They would be incapable of affecting anyone.

    But you voted no?

    Does that mean you were just pretending to be cool?
    Yes, I voted no, but was looking for "hell no" but didn't see it.

    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    No, my dear. Not sarcastic. Instead a probably futile attempt at showing you we keep looking in all the wrong places.

    I cannot deny my surprise, displeasure and outright disgust for anything or anyone making a banner of anti-smoking behavior. I have nothing but contempt towards anyone who makes their social behavior an anti-social attitude towards someone who simply smokes. It's a clear sign of their utter inability to understand one simple thing: I am free. It is also lack of manners.

    I'm shocking you? After all, that's precisely what you poor people say of us. That we lack manners. That we are anti-social. You suffer and agonize amidst our smoke. But, of course, you generalize. You make no effort, not even the tiniest one, to acknowledge that smoking is my right and as long as I don't bother others with my smoke, to hell with "awareness campaigns". No, you don't. You poor suffering souls prefer to offend and ostracize anyone who smokes sending them to the same limbo of pederasts, thieves and murderers.

    We are scum after all. Our breath smells like ashtrays. How disgusting. The bringing a cigarette to my mouth is a most ugly act that should be banned from any christian household and from every christian society. We alone are responsible for countless deaths due to passive smoking and we flood hospitals with health issues we created ourselves. In fact, we should have to pay. It really doesn't matter we already pay taxes and consequentely are entitled to free health care. No, free health care should only be for the healthy.

    What is important, my dear, is that you and everyone else who sees evil in smoking, who finds it a disgusting habit and makes a point of crossing the street, not talking to, or otherwise ignoring someone who smokes, keep you healthy attitude of prejudice. As a good christian, and a kind soul, you should always thrive to condemn anyone who enjoys tobacco. God will let you in when the time comes into a paradise of non smokers.

    It is also important that you or anyone else who makes a point of ostracizing and offending anyone who smokes, keep your healthy habits of jogging every morning, not watching TV or sitting at a computer for more than 3 hours daily, eat healthy varied food, never touch coffee and go to work on a bicycle. It is also important that you have only the best doctors in your long lives that don't miss important diagnostics that could have saved your lives and treat you with the only the best technologies, equipments and installations, accessible only to the wealthy.

    As for me, worry not. I'll slink down to my mud hole where I should have never have left. I'll keep smiling at children, crying when watching I Am Sam, not being able to resist a old lady begging for money on the streets, and probably return to Angola to help against starvation. I'll keep doing these things in the knowledge because I smoke I'm the scum of the earth and should deserve being mistreated, shunned and laughed at.

    ... The end.

    I don't smoke. I heard a statistic once that roughly 30% of Americans smoke, and roughly 70% of Europeans smoke. Having lived in Europe, I can vouch for that. No offense to you Europeans, but it is true that sooo many people smoke over there.
