    I was just curious about the smoking habits of the readers here.

    If you do, what do you smoke and why?

    If you don't, why not?

    absolutely not. I just read a small article in the recent Discover Magazine that had a graph showing the cancer rates over the last 50 years. It was only until 5 - 10 years ago the the rates started going down. All because people stopped smoking.

    That to me says it all.

    How did i know when i clicked the link that i would be the only one to hit "yes"? I smoke and am damn proud of it... as to why i do... well, it helps keep the homocidal urges in check... heh seriously tho, it keeps me from killing things... erm...

    and for the record, i'm GODDAMN PISSED about these nico-nazis that know best about me, and are trying to save my life (as well as my eternal soul, from the way they act) by interfering with my enjoyment of life to the max...

    :)

    No I don't. Seems rather disusting and the risk of heart disease and cancer is too much (especially heart disease)

    However, smokers have a right to smoke and these taxes are ridiculous.

    funny you should ask

    i just came inside after enjoying a nice cigar on the front porch.

    nothing like sitting on a big rattan chair while watching the clouds come over the mountains and reading a good magazine( latest copy of Mix). Top it off with a nice R&J Bully and life is saweeeet.

    :D

    I don't smoke. I don't drink.

    Why?

    I never got used to the smell. I never got used to the taste.

    It sorta depressing, since I can't go smoke a cigar or some weed, or drink champagne and wine. I'll never have a "feelin' good" sorta feeling. I'll never be able to be completely romantic! :eek:

    I guess I'll have to live with it. :)

    I'm 27 and I do not smoke, not because of the cancer we may die for it smoking or not. I do no smoke for several reasons:
    1. It is very anoying not to be able to go to bed because you need a cigarette.
    2. The same way, I have seen lots of people bothering me and others because the need to get cigarrettes some where, specially when we are working or driving.
    3. Usually people that smokes isolate themselves with other smokers.
    4. It is a waste of money, I rather buy chocolate.
    5. It is very bad for health, people that smokes have a hard time doing phisical activities, I use to left them behind.
    6. At the end 90% of the smokers regrate it, they end up with bad health, with more stress and complaining about the huge ammount of money they waisted they entire life.

    Do you need more reasons?

    well we have different reasons (i never did either to "try" to get used to the taste/smell)... but i'm in the same boat


    though i'm not sure it's depressing

    i think it's depressing when one feels the need to add these chemicals/drugs to their bodies to "truly enjoy life"

    but whatevs

    I understand. But I mean depressing when I said I can't drink wine and champagne...sorta sucks at parties. My friends understand though, so I really don't mind.

    As for trying...I never smoked. The smoke from other cigarettes I never could stand. As for drinking, that was once, at confession. lol...i don't even dip my circle thingy (i dunno what its called) in the wine cup...sorta sad, but I guess not :D

    i don't bother with parties... ha. just a reason to drink. most of my friends don't drink anyways, or not enough to need to do it much

    you drank at confession??? do you mean communion? hehe

    the circle thingy is called the "host" at least in catholic church... i don't do the wine/blood thing myself... just a personal preference though.

    lol...stupid me. It was my first communion (stupid mistake)

    and thanks...the host yeah, i just couldn't remember what it was called...we were supposed to dip the host in it...i remember it was horrible...of course, i was six, so it probably wasn't real wine...lol ;)

    I mistakenly drank a sip of beer when I was seven...i was naive enough to think that it was apple juice. Wow, that was disgusting...kept me away from alcohol for good.

    yeah, i did the whole sipping my dad's beer thing. even had a shot of vodka at my brother's wedding (when i was about 12) just to go along with the tradition of it (he met his wife in russia, so it was a clear choice. ha)

    but yeah, gross and pointless. word

    Ah, I must amend my post - I don't smoke cigarettes, but I occasionally (3 times a year maybe) smoke a cigar.

    never even tried it...

    I've never even tried smoking a cigarette in my life...

    always seemed completely disgusting to me...

    and kissing someone who smokes is pretty gross too...

    ick! :eek: :rolleyes:

    To answer everyone's question: No, I don't smoke. It's against the law here in California.;)

    I used to smoke cigars, maybe one a week, but I stopped doing that about a year ago. I still will have them on special occasions.

    I was mostly curious since it's illegal for people to smoke in restaurants, bars, any public indoor place in California. I'm so used to smelling fresh air that it shocks me to see people smoking, even though quite a few people do it on campus...trying to look cool.

    It also completely freaks me out to visit other states where this law is not in effect...

    That's one of the many things I loved about California! I cannot understand why the need to have smoking in restaurants is still abundant...I mean...I go to a restaurant to eat...not smoke?!

    I wish it were different here...unfortunately...New Orleans...I believe...has one of the highest percentages of unhealthy people/lifestyles in the country...such a shame... :rolleyes:
