    I love havin a fag.....and will never give it up!

    When it comes to the choice (and it will if you keep smoking) between having a fag or grabbing that oxygen mask to keep breathing will you still say the same?

    Substitute "drive" for "smoke"...As a friend says: you stop driving and I'll stop smoking.
    With advancing technology the analogy of car fumes inflicting carcinogens on peoples' lung is becoming obsolete. The fumes of **** will always inflict carcinogens on peoples' lung, as much of the toxicity comes from the addictive components.

    Perhaps: but motor cars are lethal enough to other people without the fumes. The toxicity comes from having comfortable, well-protected fools in close proximity to everyone else.

    I'm not sure I've got the gist of your quote but if I have my response is "I can sit in a pub without being run over by a car, but I can't sit in a pub and not breathe in noxious, injurious fumes.

    That's the big difference as far as I'm concerned.

    TRue, but no-one was ever killed or seriously injured by being run over by a cigarette.
