No but smoking is legal, shooting people isn't!!!!!!!!
Smoking is killing people, as are guns however the key difference lies in the legality of the concept!
Since when has killing people on the battlefield been illegal?

Well, it was sort of intimated vis-a-vis the UK armaments industry.

So you want to compare war with smoking? Sounds about right, they both kill people and are stupid.

At least the latter can be controlled by the individual.

Any mention of passive smoking is prohibited in your response.
Hehe, what to say now?

It cant be entirely controlled by the individual, you seem to have missed the idea that smoking is addictive due to that little component nicotine, and how can you prohibit me from adding half of my arguement :rolleyes:

I have to set some ground rules, lest I open myself up to criticisism.

Whose decision is it to smoke in the first instance? The individual's.

On whose terms is it that the nation goes to war, or alternatively, decides to supply arms and thus immerse poor countries in brutal warfare? The state's - not the individual.

Passive smoking and the addictiveness of nicotine, in the first instance of smoking, are an irrelevance.

smokers smoke just to piss off non-smokers and give them something to complain about...seriously that is the only reason.

Semi-random thought: ever since I gave up, I've wondered whether snogging a smoker really is like licking an ashtray. I've never had the opportunity to find out first hand as I've only ever gone out with good boys who don't! So if anyone can shed any light on this..
