    It makes your breath smell really nasty and clogs up your lungs.
    No thanks.

    I like the smell of cigs, and people have asked me for cigarettes before, but I'm not going to start because I know that I won't be able to stop.

    Agreed.

    Not to mention 'em killing us all with their passive smoking!

    Interesting Fact: Did you know that Ciggarettes contain Benzene? For those of you who don't know, its a very dangerous chemical that's usually handled with reinforced rubber gloves and isolated inside Screened and protective box.

    I don't smoke.
    I will never smoke.
    Though, I want to get addicted, to show everyone how easy it would be to stop.
    (I don't believe in addictiveness)

    My grandfather died because of his addiction to smoking. He spent the last 2 years of his life in a nursing home with the entire left side of his body paralysed. The day he died he coughed up so much tar.

    Don't smoke.

    It's not a question of believing in it or not, it's the NICOTINE that gets you addicted. With enormous will power it is possible to give up (I had a hell of a time but I did eventually help my friend give it up) but I wouldn't think of it in terms of something you could 'just switch off' there are very few, if any, people who are able to do that after becoming properly addicted.

    I've never understood why people smoke, other things that are 'bad for you' and addictive (from alcohol all the way up to crack) at least offer some sort of temporary positive, what do you gain from smoking?


    It's not like stupid people who say their addicted to games or chocolate or some other shit, it contains addictive substances, namely: nicotine, that your brain adjusts to and tells your body that it needs. That's why people are ill when they detox, their brain is like "What the fuck, why aren't you giving me this chemical I need to survive?" Maybe that's a bit of a giant over-simplification, but you get the idea.

    As I already said, I don't smoke and neither should you, but smoking does provide a period of increased bloodflow which warms the body and provides something of a relaxation euphoria.

    I started smoking benson & hedges when I was about 10yrs old and quit when I was 17. Took me over a year and 3 attempts.

    Stinkin' habit! [​IMG]



    @bowser128 Actually, chocolate and games can be addictive. Anything that gives your brain a "kick" (chemical or otherwise) can become addictive if used in excess.

    @Issac Why not try smack? Its supposed to be really good [​IMG]

    No smoking here. Don't see why people do it, it kills if you haven't heard. BTW don't click on that.

    well, i KNOW nicotine is "addictive".
    though, I've also heard alcohol get's you drunk... which hasnt happened to me (like it has to my friends)

    also, Though it's addictive, nicotine, how hard is it to say: "No, i won't pick that shit up".. and if theres any cigs left, just burn them or throw them.

    Willpower ftw!
