whether you like smoking or not, its still a hazard to your health. so this topic isnt really debatable. not anymore at least.

I think that taking up smoking is a personal choice. Sure it may harm your body, but so will other things like drinking. If you are fully aware of the concequences (sp) and you still smoke then, there is nothing anyone can do about it.
But then afterwards when people get cancer from smoking, people will be looking for someone to blam. So they turn to the tobacco companies, but they never balme themselves, even though they are the ones who choose to smoke in the first place. Its not like someone shoved it into there mouth and made them smoke.
Sorry if that didn't make any sense


It did. People need to learn to take responsibity for their own actions. Even though I will agree that the media has a heavy influence on smokers and future smokers, your cancer is your fault....

...if you smoke. This comes from a child in a two-smoking-parents family (luckily they aren't in the same house but now my dad's girlfriend is adding to the smoke). My parents have smoked since before I was born and I grew up around it. It was bad for me as a baby...I wasn't always coughing for no reason. So parents? Don't smoke, God dammit. Nuff said.


Well said.
Im 3/4 Portuguese..so OF COURSE there are ignorrant smokers in the family..my grandmother who was a second mother to me died 6 years ago from lung cancer that went to her heart and brain. I still dont see why cigars and cigarettes are legal. addicts will get over it eventually.

*unwanted*:
I love smoking, I love the smell of it, I love it when I blow the smoke out of my mouth and I see it disappear in the air, I love kissing guys that just had a smoke, I love the taste of it..

the only thing I don't love about it is when I get in my eyes..

*hugs* Oh you're wonderful.
But when it gets in your eyes and youlook like you've been crying you can pull off all sorts of shit... Ah memories...

There are warnings.
Most people know the effects.
It's their choice, if they want to smoke, let them.

i think that if you agree to smoke then you agree to the risks you are taking.
I mean i hate my friends smoking because i don't want them to die the horrible way that you can, and i have tried all that i can to make them stop but now i guess its just their decision and their life, and i can't change that

Do people in England think that smoking in public places should be made illegal, like in Ireland?

I can't STAND smoking. I'm like, insanely hugely against it. I don't think the tobacco companies should be blamed for the medical problems it causes, though, since they DO put the warnings, but I think they should be blamed for selling it. I really think smoking should be made illegal, seriously, drugs that are LESS harmfull than smoking are illegal, but people can still go out and buy cigarettes? I also really don't get why people do it. Everyone knows how harmful it is, but people still smoke 2 packs a day every day of their lives. There's also some new info out, there was recently a study done that proves non-smokers are more intellegent than smokers. The nicotine kills brain cells and the ability to grow them(may not be the best wording for that, but it's what I can think of, lol)back and new ones. I seriously can't stand smoking, my mom smokes and she knows how much I hate it, but she'll still sit there and smoke 5 feet away from me and I get the choice of not breathing through my nose or inhaling smoke.

One more thing, interesting little fact here. Second hand smoke is most harmful to teenagers. When my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and she was talking to her docter about it she told her that(docter told my mom, lol)

There are a lot of things that people choose to do that should be stopped. And it isn't just in public areas that people who don't want to smoke have to inhale the crap. People who have never touched a cigarette in their lives wind up dying of diseases caused by smoking because they had to sit in a car with their brother who was smoking, or their mom, or dad, or anyone. People dye way too early because they want to inhale smoke? Go jump into a burning building, it'll do the same thing to your lungs. People make a "whole lot of fucking fuss" about it because people shouldn't be dying because their parents smoke. People make a "whole lot of fucking fuss" about it because people shouldn't be dying when they're 20 years old. People make a "whole lot of fucking fuss" about it because people shouldn't have to get cancer. It's not like people just walk around and are against smoking because there's nothing better to do.

What did you say about people being in an inclosed, private area with a smoker? And it's also people's choice to cut their wrists open when they're fifteen, but because they know they'll dye, it's not an issue?

I'm not saying its right or wrong but, If tabacco companies just stopped making them. People will seriously be going crazy, its addiction. BUt really they choose to smoke...if they get cancer Its was because of their own choice...
