Smoking...

Postby Eikaridu » Fri May 27, 2005 9:39 am

I have been thinking... What are your views on smoking? To me it's just slowly killing yourself for no reason whatsoever. Sadly, some people in the world don't seem to care whether or not it kills them. It's just a waste of money. It's just sickening me how many people still do it.

Well, discuss.

I hate smoking. I'd never do it. I hate the smell already, let alone doing it myself.

Smoking is just dumb. You kill yourself while draining yourself and your family financally. You might as well just make a bonfire and stand over it, burning yourself and breathing in the smoke.
"God Bless America" doesn't mean "God damn everyone else."

The world is my country and to do good is my religion.

Killing one man is murder. Killing 100,000 men is foreign policy.

My father smoked from 16 to 42, he is turning 50 in October and has remained smoke-free. My sister started smoking at 16 and at 24 is still smoking. Two of my housemates have been smoking for 2 years and still smoke. My first semester of college became stressful and I took up smoking. After three weeks I realized that it does nothing for stress, actually making it worse. It was a waste of mone and I was cutting years from my life. I quit and have not went back to smoking.

Smoking is dumb, it is a waste of money and it will kill you earlier. However, many people start smoking for different reasons and become addicted. You have to keep in mind that an addiction is mental and physical. They realise that smoking is killing them but an addiction can be stronger than the person's will.

You stopped smoking? Well done! Not many people can just quit.

It's the same thing as people getting addicted to coffee, coke (and all the other variations of it), drugs, pills, etc.

You body gets addicted to it, and when you want/try to stop, your subconsuious (sp?) does not want to give that up. Hence why it is harder to quit for some, compared to someone who can give up the habit at the spur of the moment.

Why would one smoke in the first place?!
Who's the idiot who told young people that smoking is a very "cool" thing?!
