    people smoke because of group pressure and low selfesteem plus they are usually quite uninformed. its mainly in poor countries with bad education that high levels of the population is smoking. hence because of stupidness.

    :eek: Well that's just rude.

    If most of that post wasn't aimed at him, why did you even quote him?
    It is, isn't it? :huff:

    His post demonstrated the point I was trying to make - these are always the people that say 'I smoke when I'm drunk', or 'I smoke when I'm stressed'.

    IMO:

    It's unhealthy, it stinks, and I think people who smoke look more as if they're TRYING to look cool than actually looking cool.

    I've heard that it's addictive after quite a few cigarettes over a short amount of time, which is why I HATE it when people want sympathy for being addicted to it.

    I smoked about twice which was because I was drunk, which I regret. However, now when I'm drunk I still wouldn't touch them *shakes head*.

    They're only around because people used to think they were healthy. Now? I can't see the point in them at all. :-\

    I like the feeling, the taste and the way it calms me down.

    Being physically and psychologically addicted isn't a nice feeling though.

    I smoke 10 to 15 daily

    To eradicate the withdrawal effects arising from the last cigarette. It's a cycle. This isn't true for occasional smokers.

    In the words of Billy Piper, smokers are saying:

    "Because we want to, because we want to"

    OK you, and the other person who said ''only when I'm stressed'', WE ALL HATE YOU.

    You go on at us in this self righteous way, like "ooh I only smoke when I'm drunk/stressed, because smoking is bad for you", then you think it's OK to steal our ****, which you don't pay for, whenever you are 'drunk' or 'stressed'.

    And you do smoke. It doesn't matter when/how/whatever, you smoke. If you really thought it was so bad, you wouldn't do it, drunk or not, stressed or not. Why does that change anything?!

    If anything I'd say we're better than you, as at least we're just addicted, you actually choose to smoke sporadically.

    Arrgghhh /rant /rant /rant.

    I quit exactly two weeks ago
    And back then I could have given a range of really really 'great' (read crap) reasons

    And now? I have not a bloody clue. I feel the same now as I did when I smoked... except minus cravings everyday And I eat mints now instead of smoking.

    I didn't really enjoy it lol I much prefer being able to smell and taste food properly

    Cos I like getting yellow teeth, I like wasting money on them, I like to cough and find it hard to breathe, I'm quite a big fan of blackened bronchioles! I like smelling of it and seeing people's sour faces when I go near them, I also like littering.

    What's wrong with smoking?
