    Depends on what you are talking about smoking. I'm not the biggest fan of tobacco.

    People should be allowed to take any drug they like imo. I don't want to be told by anyone what I can and can't put into my own body.

    Because the health risks don't matter to me. I have no desire to eek out as much life as I can on this earth till I'm 80 or 90 or some similar ridiculous age and end up dying of parkinsons or some other physical and mental degenerative thing. If technology advances so much that I can live in a 20 year olds body when I;m 90 then they'll be able to stop cancer, so it's win win, if not I don't want to live till I'm 90, nor even 70.

    When it comes to other people, I don't believe anyone breathing in a bit of second hand smoke in the street will do any more harm than chemical filled exhaust fumes. After all, no one kills themselves by chain smoking cigarettes but plenty of people kill themselves with their car exhaust fumes

    Plus it feels good. Not amazing, but good. What else am I going to spend my money on anyway. Good quality green is expensive and not easy to smoke in the street. Ket or coke is even more expensive and you can't relax. it's easier to get **** than booze and booze always makes your head hurt. And eating, as my body has found out, makes you fat.

    fair enough.....

    i wish every smoker quits so that the tobacco industry suffers huge losses and shut down because they caused so many deaths & illness..
    Everybodys got to die of something mate. And non smokers have a higher cost on the government than smokers if that's the bee in your bonnet.

    it is not just about the cost, and the excuse that everybody got to die of something does not work for me....because here an industry of death is built and actually advertised

    Yeah, how stupid do you have to be not to treat life as a competition to see who can last the longest?

    I can't believe these morons still think having "fun" is a good thing to be doing. No government guidlines or targets say I should have fun, so I don't. It's not complicated. Duh.

    I smoked for a year. Quit 5 months ago.

    Don't do it; you just can't justify smoking anymore. Anyone who starts is just a poser douchebag who wants to fit in by trying to look 'cool' (and yes this is from personal experience).

    I started smoking at 19, I knew it was wrong, gross, and dirty but I started cuz the job I was workin at wouldnt let you have a break basically unless you smoke. (basically you couldnt say I need to take a 15 min. break to check my phone) I started just to go oustide of the office, and 5 years later I'm still doing it...I wanna quit so bad, but just cant get the motivation...it pisses me off when people start cuz i always said i would never get hooked and now i am...So glad the no smoking ordinace is in set cuz it helps me cut down, and hoping to completly quit within the next few months
