In a related story chewing tabacco enables you to fly.

there's an extra http:// in the link.

and..why is this spiffy? forgive me for being a drag (oh god..) but smoking is a disgusting habit and i feel no pity for anyone that manages to become addicted to cigarettes these days, when its impossible NOT to know the damage it causes. i only skimmed the article, but if i'm missing something here, feel free to let me in on it. :P

and hooray for run-on sentences.

I know I get sad if I don't get my RDA of good old Vitamin N.

Tobacco, the devil of modern california political corectness.

If there wasn't a tobacco industry I would never have learned to read. I was born in Tennessee. (sp?)

If you have not lived in the Apalachian Mountains then you have not leaned about real American poverty.

but hopes this research could aid in designing better smoking cessation treatments for depressed patients.

Too late. What do you think Zyban is? Its an antidepressant called Wellbutrin disguised as a stop smoking aid. It works because it doesn't leave you "cold turkey."

but smoking is a disgusting habit and i feel no pity for anyone that manages to become addicted to cigarettes these days

Yeah, a mistake in your teens that eventually gets you hooked is something you just have to live with. There should be pity for the ignorant, especially when the tobacco companies were specifically targeting minors for years.

I think I'm going to start smoking prozac instead of Player's light.
2001-09-19 01:47:36 AM  
DO BONGS,instead!
2001-09-19 01:48:58 AM  
I started smoking when I was *23* years old. Was I a victim of RJR's advertising?

Smoking a cigarette shows you don't fear death. I don't. Fear death that is. You PC folks need to face reality. You and all of us will die in 30 or 40 years.
Who cares about a freaking decade. Make a difference now.

Light up, you wimps! Remember James Dean.

and now a Lost Deep Thought bt Jack Handey :

I don't advocate that children start smoking . But for those kids who already do smoke , boy , it's good, isn't it ?
2001-09-19 03:19:17 AM  
So if I stop smoking I'll be even more depressed? No thanks.
2001-09-19 03:34:24 AM  
Pass me the goddamn cigarettes.

I'll take the clove ones, thanks.
2001-09-19 04:26:22 AM  
I started smoking because an ex-girlfriend wouldn't stop. I couldn't stand the smell of cigarettes on her so 1-2 made it tollerable. Stupid? yes, but come on, the head was incredible.
2001-09-19 04:28:37 AM  
wah. i hate smokers and people who smoke are dumb-dumbs. i wanna cry and biatch about people smoking because i have nothing better to do. i'm a loser who never did anything my mommy told me not to.
2001-09-19 04:57:03 AM  
I smoke, I'm hooked, and quitting's gonna be a biatch. I don't make any excuses about it, for god sakes IT'S FARKING SMOKE!!! Of course it's gonna kill me the same as me running through a flaming building will. Smoke inhalation will do that boys and girls.

My biggest problem is if I quit, what the hell do I do after sex?!?

Oh, and before I forget, Caydi, apparently smoking has kept me a little less depressed about the topic than you, maybe you should look into that. Yeesh, whiney retards..
2001-09-19 05:09:26 AM  
Non-smoking biatches amuse me. I like to blow smoke in their faces just to watch them to that thing where they screw up their eyes tight and then try to ignore it 'cos they think they're so above me.
2001-09-19 05:11:23 AM  
Ehh here we go, smokers vs. non smokers, of course.

(I smoked for a bit in college, quit...
but goddamn I feel like starting again. I can't take this crap.)
2001-09-19 06:08:47 AM  
Stop joking around. You have sex? Ha!
2001-09-19 07:55:43 AM  
Yes. Appalachia is a poverty stricken open sore on the crotch of America. And not much is being done about it. Unemployment rates are up to or above 50% in selected counties, so people are of course broke and thus unable to find good jobs. So what do they do to keep food on the table? Grow marijuana. Sad situation really.

For all who have not been able to correct the link:
Here is the correct link.

Also: This article really depresses me (lifelong non-smoker).
2001-09-19 08:06:31 AM  
Ooops, forgot to correct it as well, retry:
Here is the correct link.

This time I forgot the end-tag, but it works. (Time to go home.)
2001-09-19 08:49:37 AM  
I think that the tag should be obvious. ;)
2001-09-19 08:50:01 AM  
Of course, you should shoot it up, for saftey's sake.
2001-09-19 09:30:28 AM  
difine "life long smoker" please, appie. surely you didn't start while you were still in diapers.
2001-09-19 09:37:07 AM  
Please read carefully (lifelong non-smoker). I never smoked a cigarette in my life, leave alone anything else. I do admit to trying one time, but I did not like it and did not finish that cigarette (quit after tasting once).

I've been smoking for more than 10 years and I'm still depressed.
2001-09-19 11:03:35 AM  
DotComrade: i wasnt whining and smokers dont make me depressed. actually the only time i give a fark about it at all is when someone i care about starts smoking.

all i was saying is that *i* think its a disgusting habit, and *i* dont have pity on them. so, ya know, if you've got a problem with that, i cant help you. but there's no need to start personal attacks.
2001-09-19 12:07:06 PM  
I smoke, but it is alcohol abuse that really beats depression.
2001-09-19 12:18:42 PM  
I quit roundabout five years ago and have never been happier. The main reason is that I don't want to be that beholden to ANYTHING. The people I see on the morning train, pressed against the doors, unlit cigarette between lips and lighter cocked in one hand... just ACHING for the doors to open and get their fix... that's so farking disgustingly spineless. I don't give a crap if it's physical addiction or not, surely they must have noticed how pathetic they've become. Chew the gum, wear the patch, just have some self-respect.
2001-09-19 12:25:50 PM  
Icecycle: totally. You're not going to hear me get on some soap box about peoples habits.
2001-09-19 02:23:59 PM  
Yep, I picked the wrong week to give up cigarettes. I stopped last Saturday, after my mother passed away from complications of acute asthma on Thursday, September 13th. Too bad, she was only 52. Hmmm, I am depressed, and my only other crutches are smoking herb and drinking. I miss the cigarettes though.

Leo: I'm sorry to hear about your mother.
2001-09-19 06:35:23 PM  
I started smoking to increase my sex appeal.

It hasn't worked.

. . .

How depressing.

appie: that's what happens when i try to post one last comment before going to bed at 6 am.
