I SAW you inhale!

Side: yes

Yes I Do, and heavily! I actually had my first cigarette when I was six years old because I loved the smell of tobacco. I'm 62 now and still a smokestack no matter what. Even a bit of a scare a couple of years ago with some strange little nodules growing in my lungs didn't stop me. Call me an idiot.....it's OK! The nodules disappeared and here I sit. I roll my own now since doing that costs me about $8.00 a carton!

I will never be convinced that smoking alone kills you...not ever. Until the day they put that boy in the bubble back in there with filtered air, with no other pollutants and he gets cancer with no history in the family will I be convinced. I think it's so much a combination of pollutants that they really cannot isolate tobacco as causative. Why take the risk? Because I love it just like I love every coffee bean I grind!

Kuckla, that is the least logical argument I think I've ever seen. If you want to smoke, fine, but remember denial is not just a river in Egypt.

Side: No

Smoking isn't logical soc...it's a thing one does for the pleasure of the experience. Besides that the Nile is a polluted graveyard. I make no real excuses soc....I'm simply a smoker who tires of the BS about it. I never get sick except for once a year. That's it! If I die of Lung Cancer or any Cancer it wouldn't surprise me since it's still so rampant...but I truly don't care what I die from...and that's a fact!

I was a smoker for about ten yrs. I recently started seeing a chiropractor and on the first time xray they found a spot on my lung. They sent me off to my family doctor and I, needless to say was freaking out- tears and all. The one thing I wanted was the thing I threw out the window.

It turned out to be a tiny calcification probably caused by the standard Mantoux TB test I had done for employment purposes. Phew!

I took it like a wake up call and have not had a ciggie sense. A little over three months!

Just curious that's all.

No because I see the effects it has on poeple. I may be only 15 but everyone on my mom's side of the family smokes and they now have a problem with nicotine but refuse to admit it. It has a strong effect on your life and you can't do every day activities without breathing heavily. And not to mention my Grandmother who is putting her life into a bigger whole by smoking a pack a day. There's nothing I can do about them smoking but I can keep myself from smoking and I plan to keep it that way. Also my mom has started smoking again and it really bothers me. She knows how I feel about it. I'm tempted to drown her smokes in the pool. I don't want her to dig herself into a grave because nobody can resist the nicotine addiction. Whether you say you can or not. I believe you can't. First it starts as one every now and then and then one everyday. Pretty soon it's a pack a day. Nobody can resist the addiction so that's why I don't smoke and will never even pick up a cigarette unless I take it away from someone else.

No. never found a need for smoking. But, i'm not a very stressful person. I'm actually very laid back and lazy, so of course i'm not gonna smoke...

Side: No

No. That was my teenage years, then you wise up.

Side: No

Cigarettes? No. I have never seen the point. They don't get you high, and are addictive. But hey, maybe that's just me.

No if we were talking about smoking other things...

Side: Not cigarettes

HUBBA DING & BINGO...lol!

Side: yes

I can't smoke other things. It makes me a super weirdo. It's like I am allergic to it,which is good because not only is it bad for you, it can get you in trouble too. Glad I don't like it.

Side: No

You must try! I've always said it...so it is correct-a-mundo. Listen...you ARE a super weirdo, get used to it! Besides smoking the big M makes you crave all kinds of weird shit at 4:00 A.M. AND, you'll make it too, no matter what....even if you don't have the ingredients. Trust me here. I once was in the mood for a three egg omelet with swiss and mushrooms inside. No dice. No Chicken and no eggs or anything else. I ended up havin sardines on toasted Challah. I had such a headache the next day! Since then, I've never run out of eggs.

Side: yes
