And good luck getting cancer by age 70 if you're doing less than 2 packs a day.
A smoker is less likely to value his life more than a non-smoker.
What cracks me up is people who don't smoke think they're going to live forever. Bah... Hate to break it to ya, but you're not. ;)
You would be right in saying that I hate all of them if smoking was your 'profession'Quote:
Fair enough. You hate me, you hate Albert Einstein because he smoked too, you hate soldiers that value their country more than they value their lives, you hate storm chasers, you hate coal miners because most will die of cancer in their late middle age, you hate daredevils,...
Yea, basically. I smoke mostly since I work outside, hate bugs and I run the daily risk of falling to my death. Smokin' high up on a scaffold calms my nerves. I also drink since I figure it might be the last beer I ever have. I'd like to get laid every day too, but that never happens! lol
I think it's time for you to say something nice about smokers Yarin, and wrap it up.
A lot of people here have a very naive view on smoking - it's bad and people who do it are worse. What you've gotta remember is that most people start smoking when they're young and prone to peer pressure (it's true). They'd probably find that wanting to fit in is a lot closer to reality than thinking about their 70's, oxygen tanks and stairs. Cigarettes, like grapes (I'm nearly sure of it), are riddled with nicotine. Are you going to label people who wanted friends at the age of 14 and who at 30 can't stop? I only know a handful of people who enjoy it. Most, I find, want to give up but don't have the will power.
I neither like or dislike smoking or smokers. I voted 'yes' because I didn't see the third option (could a mod change my vote, please?), which describes me exactly, with cigars though.
>> Bah. There's more dangerous toxins being belched from the exhausts of planes, trains and automobiles (not to mention countless industrial plant sources and their emissions) that dwarf anything the burning of a cigarette can do to non-smokers.
Heh. Can't wait until they market that in cylindrical smokable form! Lets call it 'Deathing'.
>> A smoker is less likely to value his life more than a non-smoker.
If anything because they know they're probably gonna get less years from it they'll probably value it more.
>> Most, I find, want to give up but don't have the will power.
If you want to give it up badly enough, then you'r will power will do the job fine.
I know several ex-smokers, and they all say quitting was well worth the suffering.
