    Guys... no one should smoke. Let me tell you a story (This is all true):

    My next door neighbors smoke. Yet their rich because they're smart. One's a brokerer and the other's a automobile fixer. Either way, they smoke. One day I sat down with the guy there and this is what he told me:
    "Smoking is like jogging while sitting, sprinting while jogging, and unable to breath while sprinting. This is why no runners smoke... because they lose breathing quality."
    I asked him, "Why'd you start in the first place?"
    And he said, "My friends one day were sitting around smoking at my favorite place. I seemed not to fit in and decided to go and join them. They all said that they were fine and have been smoking for a long time, but now, I'm panting for breath almost always and can't improve my breathing in any way."
    I asked him, "What does it feel like, though?"
    He replied, "I explained most of it before, but there's more to it. Sometimes you can't swallow for no reason, sometimes you get drowzy in the middle of doing something really active for no real reason, and, most of all, you get sick VERY often. That's why I'm glad my wife has a job she can do on the computer at home."

    That's everything he said while we were cooking s'mores over a fire one night. I learned alot and that night oathed never to smoke... ever.

    yeah. smoking is for lameass idiots who want to throw away their lives.

    very good advice: NEVER START. if you do, you will want to do it again sometime in your life. you wont be able to help it. you will. DONT START SMOKING EVER.

    according to what i know and have seen, no1 starts to smkoe because he likes it - its always to make a 'cool' impression on your friends. unfortunately, after smoking on a regular basis for some time, people do start to develop a need for it, and its sad, becuase they have never and never will enjoy it, but they cant stop. i had a friend who went exactly through the same thing.

    i personally never found smoking adictable :p its really bad :roll:

    Yes thats the problem. But the smoke of cigarretes.... its bad for people who are around smelling it, its like if that people that were smelling it were smoking too... But i hate when people start smoking just because want to make a "cool" impression on friends. Why is it cool? Just cause they have a stupid and useless thing on their mouth?
    I don't really thing smoke is good, and if you were asking this because you wanted to know how "good/bad" it was, i tell you, and basing on all other advices, SMOKE IS BAD :evil: :evil:

    i totally agree with u U.V

    unfortunately these kind of situations do not happen only with cigars at all. it happens with drugs too. guys trying to make an impression of themselves start taking "light" drugs always thinking " I can stop whenever i wish, i'm the man, i control myself"

    what they do not realize, or do and are arrogant enough to engage themselves in a fight between their cerebral instigations in their subconscious. this is chemical. u wont have control of urself, it will take over u completely until u will have nothing besides the everlasting will of taking more and more

    so i repeat ddngw advice: do not even try it, or u will like it, and will lose control of urself

    even so, u dont have to prove nothing to no one. if u are certain of what u are and what u do want to do u already have acomplished an objective that not everyone can. u will be urself, and no one is better than this.

    just thought it was useful to push the anti drugs stuff, not wanting to violate the rules, its just a warning, like most of the users here are beggining their pubescence or finishing it (like me)

    Well smoke is bad and final point. This was a good topic to talk about, ah and for god's sake dont be lazy and vote, only 6 votes lol. And i "think" that there are more than 6 people who view this and more than 6 people in the site :lol: .
    I agree with Raiju, "im the man"... the "males" usually think they are the best, at leats here in Portugal, only because of their physique. I don't think so, cause the "males" are usually stupid and idiots (some of them, not all). And thats why I think there are more men witch: are drunk/smokers/or get any type of drug. Let's just say that women are more careful with this. I sometimes think in how much pain this things have brought to the world, just think about it, i sometimes feel like closing my eyes and never wake up, cause in many ways this world sucks, and thats a thing that i cannot ignore. Maybe thats because sometimes i completly loose my head, and i feel like making anything for leaving "this wretched world" i think...
    And i also think in the "pain of nature". Just that humans bring many suffering to nature, but nature always counters... experiences in the sea, etc... always causes epicenters... from epicenters to tsunamis... and i think i don't need to say the results. :?
    I know that this doesnt always happens cause of men, but USUALLY happens cause of them. Humans usually bring the curses uppon themselves, and then they whine, just ignoring the fact that its THEIR fault. I know that no1 borned cause he/she wanted, i just think that if people want a better world, they have to work for it, not just stay there sited waiting for a train. Ive asked my parents about this (they are not smokers, fortenetly);

    Me: If people want a better world, why don't they just stop making this kinds of drug?
    Father: Cause if the factory of ciggaretes (sorry butmy english is still not very good, still in the 6º year :lol: ) stopped, people wouldnt have work and that would lead to more "poor people" (i dont know this word too :cry: ).
    Me: Money? Is that all what people care about? Money doesnt cure wounds, can't people see that? I think the world would be much better without this drugs, this is useless, stupid, and vicious.

    tries to act like he's not the person that voted he is
    ok, i only have a few things I'd like to say:
    a. yes i smoke b. yes I've tried to quit and c. people need to realize that there is alot more to smoking that what most realize.
    smoking calms nerves and relaxes a person. also some smoking can smell quite good. my thought is that you people are only, or at least mostly, thinking of cigarettes... there are alot of other things out there
    something tells me you just wanted to start trouble. so all I'll say is that there is no reason to flame anyone for any reason. especially for simply smoking... please
    as alot of people do. me? i grew up around it, and was addicted to 2nd hand smoke from around the age of 6
    first off i just presented an example of how i didnt start with it being cool. (actually i think i smoked my own first cigarette at age 12 just to get at my parents... lets not get into that.
    hmm it does that? I've read alot of reports and never heard anything about it... in fact I'm 20 years old, 5'11" and 235 lbs... i do actually have a small life beyond the computer, so i do get my excercise and everything. then again as Raiju said in the post above
    it can have different effects on different people, and as i think he is hinting to, everyone is at least a little different
    my only point to this last quote is that with as much one way talking I'm likely now to get spammed with hate PMs simply because i spoke my mind. ever think that maybe that was the same thought that went through the other people that viewed - but didnt post or vote?
    on another note:
    yes it does cost alot, specially if you add it up per year.
    all forms of smoking that i know of is quite addictive.
    there are potential health risks, but there are the same in a mcdonalds burger or anything else you eat or drink.(and if you think smoking is bad, try buying a bowl of chili and finding someones finger like this)

    hey now... dont go feeling sorry for me because my parents smoked alot and my grandparent smoked so much you open the door and a rectangular blob of smoke shoots 15 foot outside... and the fact i have pictures of me being literally green.
    :p
    its not a big deal to me as I've been smoking for so long I've forgotten the point besides how well it calms me and that everytime i try to quit something really really bad happens... (last time i got a letter saying i had a warrent out for my arrest since august of 2003... that was 3 months ago)
    my biggest deal is that a thread like this should be used for general wonder, not "OMG U SMOKE SO UR BAD!"

    You do know that whole finger in the chili thing was fake right? The woman only did it for money, and apparently, she had done it before to other restaraunts.

    Now about the topic, I've never smoked, and I don't intend to start. I actually find that I have trouble breathing around people who do, and not because of the noxious smell. I won't judge anyone who does smoke, you can do it if you want, just get back to me when you get lung cancer about how it calms your nerves.

    And yes I'm talking about cigarettes, not drugs. People who do drugs are just asking for their lives to be destroyed.

    And those are my thoughts and opinions.

    tsk tsk tsk. a typical smoker trying to stick up for his nicotine. as for the calming nerves thing. yes i can agree that that is true, but how long until that relaxation from a cigarette/pipe/poison wears off hmm? 20 maybe 30 minutes? yes it can have different effects on dofferent people such as someone already having health risks after their first week. yes there are health risks to eating mcdonalds so i'll simply put it fair: both people who eat at mcdonalds and people who smoke are stupid. you always think youre gonna quit since you know youre cutting down, but you never really quit until you do it. also, smoking a pipe may cause you to inhail less smoke, but it produces more tar so it can cause more risks of getting lip or mouth cancer. also the real scented and flavored tobacco is actually twice as wose in cancer risks. so good luck getting cancer and contributing to the delpletion of the ozone layer. :D






    ps. smoking kills, just ask mr. krinkels.
