    Very occasionally - when I drink, I enjoy a smoke, but not otherwise...

    People normally say they smoke when they are "tension".... like when their mind is very busy and tense....

    I still don't know why they would say like that because smoking will do bad for one's health, thus damaging the body and making the brain work less effectively than normal...

    I am a non-smoker and I have no plan what so ever to smoke...

    With a few beers... sometimes... much like the IM hungry Govt-the-cheese-of-greatness. (working on it)

    >>>I am a non-smoker and I have no plan what so ever to smoke...

    Good for you... it is addictive and will kill you. Wear your seatbelt too.

    I don't know how many people do smoke here, but I am one of the non-smokers.

    Does 2nd hand count? Actually things have been better now and I see less places where people can smoke in public.

    I'm still waiting for the day when smoking in public places is banned.

    If I started releasing carcinogenic gases into the air for others to inhale, apart from cigarettes, then I think I'd be arrested.

    I think smoking in the vicinity of others, so that they have to inhale your gases is one of the most ignorant and selfish things, people do, and no, before anyone says, the smoker should move or put it out, not the other way around!

    Recently some person sent a letter into our local newspaper complaining about a new shopping centre being developed in the area. He was complaining because the centre was going to be completely non-smoking. He was saying things like "How can I be expected to walk outside in the rain to smoke my cigarette?". I just cracked up, what an ignorant fool. He obviously had no care at all for the majority of people who do not want to contract cancer whilst doing their grocery shopping! I feel extremely sorry for people like that, who are just so damn-right selfish!

    After saying all that, I want to say that, although I can't understand it, I have absolutely no problem with smokers who don't force it in the face of other non-smokers. It's the ignorant fools, who annoy me. Just as an ignorant non-smoker would annoy me.

    Regards,

    what's also a filthy habit is spending hours creating fan sites for people who don't even know you and even if they did they'd look down on you and laugh

    It's disgusting, addictive, and very expensive if you smoke a lot. I find smoking to be a major turn-off.

    Well programmers usually endure heavy caffeine intake.
    Smoking and caffeine don't go together. Then one gets you hyped
    up, and the other calms you down.

    I don't smoke, but I just can't believe the stats i'm seeing!

    Where I live it's normal to smoke. Maybe this country's is just
    abnormal.
