I'm sorry but I don't feel any sympathy for people who smoke. I say to let them destroy themselves and those around them. Just like with drugs, if you're dumb enough to start a harmful addiction, then you deserve to suffer the consequences.
Cigarettes have killed two members of my family, and I spent my entire childhood living with parents who did nothing but chainsmoke literally every single waking moment of their lives.
I don't understand what possesses people to pick up those vile, awful-smelling sticks of paper and smoke them. And I am especially perplexed about what makes them want to smoke in the first place. If I smoked a cigarette, I would probably vomit shortly thereafter. I become nauseous and feel like I want to vomit whenever I am around second hand smoke.
I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't do drugs, I am not overweight/addicted to food, I don't have sex, I don't gamble. I do not have ANY vices whatsoever! I will be the last living person in my family! If I have a problem in my life I don't turn to cigarettes/drugs/alcohol/gambling/sex for comfort. I place my hands on the back of my head and let my problems hit me in the gut full force.
Do you speed?
Follow too closely?
Exercise too much?
Exercise not enough?
Stress too much?
Listen to music too loud?
Watch too much TV?
Play too many games?
Post on the web too much?
Sex can actually be beneficial - so perhaps you don't have enough sex?
Gambling can be fun, if you don't blow the bank on it - good for stress relief - so can an occasional drink.
Lot of things can be harmful... many things indeed.
Who is the 'all seeing guru' that says how much is too much? Or what is ok and what is not?
If you are in an enclosed space, like a garage for a hour with 30 chain smokers - you will walk out alive.
