AtomicMuffin:
In parts of Canada we have bylaws that keep smokers from smoking basically anywhere but outside. (which must kind of kill the fun of it in the winters, but hey, to each his own, right?) So, people can`t smoke inside malls, restaurants, grocery stores, hospitals, etc. And technically they`re not supposed to smoke within 20 feet of the entrances to these places either. But they do. So when I go to the mall, or to the hospital, I have to wade through a crowd of people standing there smoking. I`ve tried holding my breath, but the crowds can be rather large. It`s scary to think that when my baby is born, his/her first breath of "fresh air" will be secondhand smoke. (Patients hang out at the front doors because they`re too "sick" to miss their smoke breaks...)
Also, Minya has a good point.
And that`s how I`m forced to breathe in secondhand smoke. (which has been proven to cause lung cancer, by the way)

I love how non-smokers talk like they think that quitting smoking is the easiest thing to do.
Unfortunately, I have been a smoker for 13+ years, and I am trying REALLY hard to quit.

I really started after my mother passed away, and since nicotine is a depressant, it really calmed me down when I got stressed out.

Now that I am older and I realize I don`t need them anymore, it`s extremely hard to let them go. It`s an addiction, like drug addicts and alcoholism.

heartx3jess - smoking does NOT show a sign of weakness & it`s not the dumbest thing you can do. I can think of worse things - like putting down people who do things differently than you.

Well that music makes it sound all scary, and his tone of voice makes it sound all sad.
If I didn`t already realize how bad ciggys are, I`d like freak out and tell everyone.

Ah yes... It`s an addiction.. yes, it`s very hard to quit. Too many people hide behind this and use it as an excuse though. They think: I can`t do it, so I won`t even try.

"all you holier than thou jerkoffs who talk trash please remember that it is an addiction and a tough one to beat at that."

I agree. I do feel sympathy for those who are trying to quit because it is a hard obstacle to come over.

However I don`t know why anyone starts o_O It`s clearly bad for you, it smells horrid and I don`t see the "cool" factor at all.

I guess most people start when they`re young and don`t know better though :P

Oh! And does that mean for second hand smoke inhalers it is mostly in our lungs so less harm for them? lol I don`t care whether or not one smokes I have frighteningly avid non-smoker friends and pack a day friends so I just say "meh I am going to die anyway"

I`m not a smoker, but if people want to smoke, let them smoke... they are fully aware of the health risks. Let them make their own god damn decisions and don`t get on their ass for something they wish to do.

He clearly explained the poo you mentioned was already widely know, he was just giving a visual rendition of what goes into your body each time you take a drag.

Hylian Ninja, im sure your lungs are weak and useless. Six or seven packs when drinking!? thats over 100 cigarettes! gosh you must chain smoke and smoke in your sleep, however bad it must be! Keep it up skid mark lungs hahahaaha!

Minya, my dad was the same way. He wonders why I avoided him most of my life because he always smoked around coworkers in restaurants before CA put up the good `ol smoking ban in restaurants! I feel fortunate he never smoked in the house.

Lupine, LMAO! Hmm the smell of fags, thats why I don`t live in San Francisco! Zing!

I`m Straight!

The Ghetto Science proved beyond a doubt that the brown "skid marks" go inside the body, mostly the respiratory. Am I wrong?

"this is lousy science" Good call Dacash. This would probably be why it`s "ghetto science" filmed on a rooftop. I didn`t see this sponsored by a credible institution, but i digress. I smoke a little less than a pack a day, and if it was easy to quit, I`m sure everyone would. So all you holier than thou jerkoffs who talk trash please remember that it is an addiction and a tough one to beat at that. I`m sure in your fantasy worlds you`re all perfect.

^Hey, that`s pretty smart, dacash. I never thought of that, but now that you point it out, the video does seem a lot less convincing.

OK, let`s actually apply a small amount of logic here. The smoke you take only in your mouth has only the air in your mouth to mix with. When you inhale it, it mixes with all the air in your lungs and is significantly less concentrated. When you exhale from the mouth only draw, all of the smoke is in your mouth and exits your body. When you exhale from the lung inhale, only some of that air exits in that exhale.

The concentrations and amounts are both significantly different, making this junk science. But consider further: the tissue may not filter the same based on concentration, so that may further affect results.

That said: smoking is bad, I quit 25 years ago and I`m glad for it. But this is lousy science.

Well, if you`re in the same room as a smoker, the smoke *gasp* spreads out! Eventually, you`ll breathe it in no matter what. Now, if you`re in a car or something with an non-nice individual, inconsiderate smoker (like my stepdad) who refuses to open a window, you`re going to either pass out from not breathing or inhale a lot of smoke.

Use your head.

Thank God here in the UK people can no longer smoke in enclosed public spaces, I can go into a pub and no longer have the smell of fags clinging to my clothes.

Well, it makes me feel better about all of the second-hand smoke I`m forced to breathe because of all the people who feel they need to pollute my lungs as well as their own! Maybe, if they all inhale and absorb the tar really, really well, and if my lungs can absorb the rest of the ick that`s floating out there, my unborn child will have half a chance of not having tar located inside somewhere when he/she is born.

I really don`t get why people need to get so crabby at this guy. If you don`t want to stop smoking, fine. But does he suck for sharing his opinion? Don`t watch it or just move on with your life and forget you did. If you`re so comfortable with your habit, then you don`t need to feel threatened enough to complain about it.

I smoke two to three packs a day. Six or seven when I`m drinking.

And I couldn`t give a sh*t less about this.

From the music I thought something funny was going to happen, gut instinct, y`know? But WOW, was I wrong. Actually sat through yet another dumb f*ck that thinks he is going to change the world by telling people that smoking is, in fact, harmful.

Man this guy must suck hardcore ass.

ZOMG CIGARETTES ARE BAD FOR YOU? Thank god this guy made a three minute youtube video to warn the world. I mean it`s not like we have been hearing that they`re bad for the better part of a century. We really should have a medical institution set up to tell us stuff like this. Ooh, we could give the leader of it a fancy name like the Doctor Admiral or somethin`.
