I didn't even read the article, but fark you cigarette makers. You made it seem like a safe little hobby until people were addicted. Even then, you downplayed how dangerous it was.

I hope everyone who advocates for the cigarette industry gets the same cancer my dad had.

No thanks to a replacement.  I quit, and I enjoy the irritability in its place.  It's been almost 10 years, but I tell people I just quit smoking.

Yep. Quit over 20 years ago. Some extremely stressful stuff going on right now in my life, an' Imma ready to saunter down to the Quickie Mart for a pack. I won't, but geeeeze, that nicotine kick is hard to kick.
Stay the course, it's totally worth stopping, food tastes so much better, and good Lord, it's expensive to smoke now!

Fark you. Reynolds has my back with the death sticks.

First you take my nicotine, next you come for my caffeine. Then you're offering a soma a day. I WANT MY LEGAL DECENT STIMULANTS.

Every smoker In my current company is more productive and does things right than the non smokers. We take smoke breaks because we do more than anyone else.

And after lunch just give up. The stoners ain't doing shiat.

Haven't touched one since, nor even really wanted to, but have had dreams in which I smoke and in between the dream and full consciousness, sometimes freak out because I know I'm in bed but don't know what happened to the cigarette!

Counterpoint: I'd be ok if they got the same emphysema my grandfather had... and his brother had... and my uncle has.

Make smoking illegal.  All smoking.  If people want their nicotine, make them drink it or suppository it.

Chewing tobacco should be illegal because the people who do chew are not capable of not spitting all over public property.  Make spitting on public property a death penalty crime and then chewing tobacco can be legal again.  Then make the public spitters fight and eat each other in a cannibal thunderdome until they are all eaten and the last one has starved to death.

Problem solved.

As long as it doesn't make everything within 20 feet smell like a diseased monkey ass, it can only be an improvement on cigarettes.

Wow. Nicotine re-wires the brain in such weird ways. The personal stress levels have to be at an 8 or 9, for me to want a cig, and that is rare. Friend who had breast cancer kept smoking, as did my grandmother, as did people on IV drips for chemo taking a cig break in a hospital parking garage, and the neighbor with lung cancer who was smoking a couple weeks ago. It's nuts.

Fark these assholes with a rusty spork. My grandpa died of several different cancers after a lifetime of smoking.

Brain, lung, pancreatic, lymphatic, skin, and a couple others. He was in A LOT of pain, saw things towards the end, and his saving grace was that it consumed him in 1.5 months, rather than the 6 doctors gave him when the chemo failed.

/my dad couldn't bring himself to clean grandpa's workshop, so I did. After days of dusting, organizing piles of wood/tools/unfinished projects, sweeping massive amounts of dust and cigarette butts, I left one lone ashtray filled to the brim with butts on a workbench. It was a bit of a nod to his presence, but also to his addiction.
//it is probably still there.
///that massive workshop with a master woodworker's tools sitting in the dark unused makes me sad. It came on quickly and he was not ready to go.

Sorry to read that. It's an awful addiction. There are other things I've given up over the years, don't miss 'em. But, as noted above, cigarettes are so different.

I still remember the first thing that tasted awesome after quitting for two weeks. A green salad. Wow. It was wonderful. I had more energy, walked more and lost weight. So, too many upsides for me to ever go back.
I hope you stay the course, don't go back and enjoy not being chained to those Cancer Nails.
