I have a picture of my grandfather and his buddies circa 1903. All the boys are 10-12 years old and smoking. It was the cool thing to be doing in a photograph and not unusual or out of the ordinary in The Netherlands. He died 77 years later at the age of 89 having survived two world wars and 60 some years of being married because he could, not because of smoking.

Don't smoke, its a waste of money better spent on bier.

People hate addictions and lack of self control. It's pathetic to observe actually, when a grown adult "just can't stop" doing something. The saddest part is watching them try to quit, only to start puffing/drinking/snorting again the next day.


So you're cool with the people that do it because they feel like it and make no effort to quit despite your infantile attempts at dehumanization and peer pressure?

K, cool, glad you only take issue with like 3% of smokers, good to know your hate is sharply limited.

Harry_Seldon: My father, the 2-3 pack a day smoker, dropped dead at age 53. My mother, the 2 pack a day smoker, got heart bypass, at age 62, and could never catch her breath again, died two years later. I had no parents by the time I was 25 (mother had me at 40).


Well your Father was a Tobacco Grower in a Hydroponics Plant.

I am cool with people who do it on occasion, socially, etc. In other words, those can smoke/drink/do drugs recreationally, then stop without going back. It's the ones that are clearly hooked that are sad to witness, whether they admit their addiction or not. The only things that's more pathetic is the cute little rationalizations they come up with, like "I can't quit now, I am going though a difficult time", "once I get my divorce papers finished, I quit", "once the child gets born I will quit", I am sure you've heard all those things.

So, to clarify my position:

- People who can handle substances on occasion without getting addicted, are cool.

- People who have the willpower to quit, and do so successfully, are cool.

- People who recognize that they lack self-control, and therefore deliberatelystay away from things that can get them in trouble, are cool.

And before you speculate that I am clearly a non-smoker who "doesn't know what it's like" - I had done a lot of things, but one day decided that it was just stupid, and never felt the need to go back. Several people who are dear to me have quit successfully, cold turkey. I respect that.

Make sense?

Seriously?

boobsrgood: ...Still, most people would agree that, as addictions go, smoking is pretty much a cry for help and a constant reminder of self-hatred.


People with all sorts of habits have self-hatred, or more often, lack of self-respect--and I agree that that mental state and the long-term stresses associated with it do have a deleterious effect on health. Smoking is merely one of a million different ways to cope with that, and many other stressors. If you have a good attitude about yourself and life, not to mention the right genetic mixture, then smoking/drinking/whatever won't have that much of an effect on you (quintessential example of George Burns). So no, I think very few people would agree with your statement. You sure you aren't projecting?

milk000: ...People hate addictions and lack of self control. It's pathetic to observe actually, when a grown adult "just can't stop" doing something. The saddest part is watching them try to quit, only to start puffing/drinking/snorting again the next day.


It makes me sad that anyone would feel this way, as it shows you have limited experience getting to actually know people, and don't have much compassion. Depending on the circumstances of people's lives, the environment they were raised in, and of course someone's genetic makeup (some people are far more prone to addiction than others), who is anyone to judge another's decisions? You're quite fortunate to never have been addicted to anything. Why not use your superior "will" or whatever to help others overcome their deeper issues?

boobsrgood: It's silly to attack tobacco companies or tobacco, but that doesn't make smoking any less sad or repulsive. Mental illness is a serious problem for us at this stage in our evolution as a species. Psychology remains relegated to the arts, and the study of human behavior is remiss to make many strides as a hard science. Still, most people would agree that, as addictions go, smoking is pretty much a cry for help and a constant reminder of self-hatred.


What an insufferable little prick you are!

Ed Finnerty: thursdaypostal: I will be a non-smoker until the day I die, and I still do not understand one bit why people hate smokers so much.

I've been a smoker for almost 20 years and I have always tried to be considerate when smoking in public (i.e., exhaling away from people, standing downwind, etc). And I have run into very few problems.

Can't we all just get along?


I appreciate that (I do. I spent 10 long years stuck in small rooms with smokers. ie: my parents). The issue I find is that for every considerate smoker, there's 98 so-so ones, and 1 jerk. And for honesty's sake I define anyone who drops a butt anywhere but a trash container a jerk.

I despise seeing butts on the ground as much as I hate seeing gum wrappers. At least here in MI, we don't see bottles.

Re: '... stress... . Smoking is merely one of a million different ways to cope with that, and many other stressors.'

Sure, sometimes I feel like I need a drink. "Sometimes", meaning not all day, or every day.

Now - two packs per day, every day - what kind of "stress" are these people trying to cope with, exactly? You know the patterns, right? Woke up - get a smoke. Just had lunch/dinner - gotta have a smoke. Taking a break - need a cigarette. Just had sex - a cigarette would be nice. Difficult day at work - smoke. Bored - smoke.

No, I am not buying your "coping with stress" argument. We all deal with a lot of sh*t every day, and there are other ways to "cope" (or better yet - find the source of the problem causing the stress and fix it) without getting enslaved by addictions.

What makes me sad is hearing stories from my wife (works at the hospital) about babies who are born addicted. The babies had no choice, the chemicals were being fed directly into their bloodstream by their addict mothers.

We adults, on the other hand, make a conscious decision to pick up that cigarette, drink, etc.

Listen, milkboy... I'm not sure that word "sad" means what you think it does. You see, in order to be made sad, you would have to be capable of actually having emotions. Clearly, you are not.

Now, I'm glad you've never felt such stress or pain in your life that some form of chemistry didn't help dull, but the rest of us mere mortals have at least a modicum of compassion for other human beings. May your sanctimony speak well of you one day when you need a character reference because unless you wear one hell of a good mask, most of humanity will not.

Smoking is enjoyable. What more reason do you retards want? and ffs pregger women shouldn't smoke, and it's no reason to demonize other smokers with that dumb shiat. get the fark over it and out of other peoples' business.
