I think smoking is stupid especially because of peer pressure but my mum has been smoking for over 30 years and her lungs are healthy Confused

eh, not everyone starts because of peer pressure...now this is going to sound gross, cause it is, but i LOVED the smell of it and was around it as I grew up, so I just decided to try it when i was 18. i found that i LOVED the taste of it too....i know, i know....GROSS, but oh, so goooood......i don't smoke all the time, just a treat every once in a while or if i'm expecially stressed. my packs usually get stale before i can finish them all....

Just coz you smoke doesn't mean you're going to die from something induced by smoking. You could get hit by a bus, be in a car crash or you might live a long and happy life and die in your sleep.

ok, but the point of this thread is to debate smoking. not to make concrete points. see, some of us, *gasp*, do care about people who smoke, because i dont want that to happen to them.

my uncle suffers from emphazeema(sp?), and its horrible, he wish he never would have started smoking, but he still smokes, because he has trouble quitting. is that what you want, barely being able to dream, so you have to carry O2 tanks around?

Ok I am a smoker and I have been for 5 years now....bearing in mind ive been smoking since I was 11 and to tell you the truth when I tell people I smoke I get a big lecture from everyone. Its my body and I shall do what I chose to it. So what if some people arnt happy about it. I donty smoke in public places. If I go our on the town I go out side and smoke if i want a ciggaret at a friends house there pairents are fine for me to smoke outside. My mum is fine with it and o is my family so I am haooy.

You could say im harming my body and forcing my self in to a early bed. What about obese people. When they go out to they get a bashing about how fat they are and how they are harming themselfs...and its worse. Its more harmfull for you and you know what you cant say anythign to them about it coz its "cruel" well you know what lay off the smokers,

its up to others if they want to asmoke


I dont smoke and I work in a pub I would liek it if they banned it in the pub ....BUT then there will be hard business and profits so that would be a major downfall for us....

Im used to it now and running around with food and smoke going down ur throat is suffocating.....

Actually the other day a guy was cleaning our ovens with a speciall cleaner and I walked my and took a deep breath by accedent and my whole body stopped like my lungs tightend and I loss blood flow I could feel it......

never breath when ppl clean ovens

i agree its dumb to start suing the tobacco companies, if people are dumb enough to start smoking in the first place they can't blame anyone exept themselves
but you can't start comparing smoking to fast food - fast food doesn't do any harm unless you eat too much, whereas smoking causes damage even when used correctly
