    They can think what they like, so long as they don't say anything :p:
    Well, naturally that's how it goes in practice :p:

    Quite interesting how much this smoking thing has sparked up (see what I did there? lolol). Personally, I think smoking's all a bit daft, and definitely not worth the risks, but many people I'd call friends are smokers, and I wouldn't want to preach about their lifestyle habits. Like many people have for me going in moshpits and growing my hair long :p:

    But, you don't look up to them because they smoke, right?

    There are so many other things you could do to fulfil all those things, without the health effects and probably without the continuous expense. Don't take the posts on this thread as an offense because we're not trying to make you look bad because of it, just pointing out how much more a healthy life can be worth, and how much more you could do with your life and your money.
    No it isn't because they smoke, that is just a pattern i've noticed

    Other things like what? I really don't see any

    But going in a moshpit and growing your hair long doesn't usually result in decreased lung capacity :p:

    When you start talkng to patients you're gonna have to say "here this smoking is a bad idea, honestly how many a day?"

    It's uncomfortable for both you and the patient but it's gotta be done lol

    I've seen this argument loads on TSR. What I'd really like to see is how much the government gets in tax from smokers, and how much smokers cost the NHS directly and indirectly (effects of passive smoking, smoking during pregnancy etc), just think it'd be interesting to see if it is true and if so just how much of a difference there is - cold, hard numbers. There are lies, damn lies, and then there are statistics :p:

    Well, if I cook a curry, and a hair falls in it, then it could affect those eating it!

    Yes, of course it's not the same thing, but people do preach to me about it. Viva la Revolucion! :rofl:

    now i'm sorry, but passive smoking is just a load of crap - and if you smoke when pregnant then you're a nitwit, anyway that's unlikely to be a problem for me i'm thinking

    There are plenty of nitwits out there, and even if its not going to be a problem for you personally it does cost the NHS.
