For all you people who are like OMG dont do drugs this is cigarettes. Sure smoking anything isnt good for you but weed doesnt have a list of hundreds of toxic chemicals that are added to it. Im not saying go out and do drugs cuz they can be bad in excess, but weed is less harmful is all.

""cigars are NOT more healthy than cigarettes. pot is 7 times more cancerous than cigarettes, and hookah DOES cause cancer. "

""you dumb bitch, smokin weed does NOT cause cancer."

Actually, smoking pretty much anything can give you lung cancer. If you rolled up a cornstalk and smoked it, it`d still be bad for you. Inhalation is one of the quickest ways to get something into your body.

Lesson? Drink weed tea and eat brownies. XP

Oh, and kids? Don`t do drugs. xDDDD

this sort of thing only prevents young kids from smoking so when the "smoking generation` passes hopefully there will be no more smokers, anyone who is still young and wants to smoke should talk to their parents about it bacause it looks stupid and not cool, if u think you look cool when you smoke take a look around you, nobody thinks you are cool

what non-smokers need to understand is that nicotine is THE most addictive drug there is. THE MOST ADDICTIVE DRUG! Smokers know more than you do how bad smoking is, but giving up smoking is THE hardest drug to give up.

The reason nicotine is so addictive is because it does what you need it to do.

Alcohol will ALWAYS depress you because it is a depressant.

Amphetamines will ALWAYS stimulate you because they`re stimulants

Nicotine will either Stimulate OR depress you depending on whether you need to be stimulated or depressed. There is no other drug like it.

So imagine getting hooked. If you were tired and needed a pick-me-up, you would crave. if you were upset and overexcited and needed to calm down, you would crave.

Okay. Smokers have it harder than ALL of you arseholes. We`re poorer, we get out a breath a little faster, we`re going to die younger, brb...gonna grab my smokes...
We have to go outside pretty much everywhere when we want to smoke, It`s almost illegal to smoke...

LEAVE US ALONE! We know the dangers, we hear you, it smells, we know.. I don`t think I have went a day without a non-smoker going "Dirty habit". But even worse is former smokers going, you should quit... ARGH!

I don`t think most people smoke because they think it`s cool. They smoke for a lot of different reasons, mostly out of bad habit and psycological addiction. In places where smoking is prohibited in different areas, people like to smoke just to be group togethter, be social and have a ten minute brake with friends. That`s the way many non-smokers are recruited, because they want to become a part of that community. People will never quit smoking unless they re-programme their brain to not liking it.

I really don`t care about people who smoke. They could choke on their cigarettes in front of me, I just wish I didn`t have to smell the smoke.
If I wanted to smell smoke, I`d go burn my nostrils or something. What`s go good about smoking? Do people like sucking down on something? They can go suck their d*cks or, even better, mine.

i wouldn`t suck a guy`s dick if he smoked. it`d taste horrible. also i don`t want anyone who`s smoked to have their mouth anywhere near me.

Charizzo you ass. Cigars are not "more natural" any more than light cigarettes are healthier for you; if you really buy into that crap then you deserve to die from lung cancer.

I have absolutely no dillusions that smoking is bad for me. Do I do it? Yes. Do I think it`s cool? drat no. Anyone who starts smoking because it`s cool are drating tools. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, when I was partying a lot a couple of years ago and really drunk, I would inhale some of my friends smoke while he was on the back patio and just that little bit of nicotine made me want more; he bummed me a smoke and after that, it was over. So the moral of the story is, if you`re not a smoker stay that way. If you are a smoker, don`t let those people out there talk you down. It`s our choice right? Not like I`m blowing down your throats.

I don`t smoke, however this example goes into other forms as well. Alcoholism is one example. Ever realize why some alcoholics gain a tolerance to alcohol (meaning that they have to drink more before they get drunk)? The same falls for this example. The body gets used to the amount of toxins entering into the body and compensates for it. It regulates the release of it through whatever means is necessary (normally a major organ). Believe me I don`t condone anything like smoking or drinking, and if you don`t believe me, then it`s fine.

I could fight against this video for the sake of all smokers. And I will (slightly). Of course smoking is linked to cancer, and thus inhaling every single bit of smoke as shown in this video would result in tar such as this. Realize that the human body (lungs and many other organs) have a way of filtering such toxins. The average person who gets cancer from smoking this amount of cigarettes is zero. Wonder why? Our body filters out most toxins that are put into it`s system. Of course, people who smoke most of their life will die from cancer or other health problems. It`s just a matter of time before filtering out the toxins catches up with the intake of the toxins into the system.

So caboose you say smoking is good becuase it funds the U.S.? The U.S. is already heading for broke whether thousands of smokers pay for cancer or not.

What I don`t get is why not make something that is good for you addictive? Like putting nicotine in vitamins so instead of making your sorrounding area smell like a$$, you can just pop a pill that actually tightens your a$$. Just seems like the tabacco companys can`t change and want to kill people.

Did you happen to know that 1 pack of cigs only costs 9.7 cents to produce? the other 3-4 dollars is all tax money. He didn`t help cig sales much. He helped fund the US gov`t. Same with every smoker. Smoking is good, without it, the US would be broke.

ugh nasty. i have nothing against people that smoke since virtually allof my friends smoke except for my fiancee (he used to but quit) but honestly i don`t understand why anyone would want that in their lungs or even their mouth in the first place

and please don`t try to justify it by saying "oh well THOSE have more tar than others because of this and that and this and stick up my ass" okay shut up. ALL cigs have tar deal with it. if you want to smoke it up fine but don`ttry to justify it by saying "well i smoke flitered so it has less tar than these" congratulations for you, you`re still inhaling about 500 other lethal toxins. Including the chemical they stuff dead bodies with. so yea...just smoke and shut up about it

the fact that so many people under 18 in the U.S. smoke on this site is highly disturbing on so many levels i can not begin to comprehind it, anyway geek kittie is right about marijuana, it doesn`t have nearly the amount of chemicals that cigarettes do, cigarettes contain on average 400-500 different chemicals, while if you smoke pure marijuana that you grew yourself, it`s not nearly as bad as a cigarette, i don`t smoke, nor am i about to, nor do i intend on it in this life time, smoking is unhealthy for you and when i die i want to go out with a bang, not laying on a hospital bed with cancer gasping for breath and barely hanging on to life

While I am not about to approve of smoking marijuana, heartx3jess needs to cite sources if she`s going to make vacuous claims. We are simply not seeing the same kind of numbers for cancer in those who smoke pot as those who smoke cigarettes. I am not saying smoking pot is completely safe, but it`s not nearly as bad as cigarettes.

Of course nicotine is poisonous, it`s an insectiside- they use it to kill bugs.
Filtered or not, it doesn`t make any difference- cigarettes are deadly. Why? Because cigarettes produce carbon-monoxide, a deadly gas if inhaled in great quantities. So, not only do you die of cancer, you also die of CO poisoning.
Oh, but if it makes you feel cool, then go right ahead- you *obviously* know what`s best for you- and think of how cool you`ll look when you`re in the hospital with emphysema, gasping and fighting for each painful, rattling breath! Cool, huh? /sarcasm
Oh, and by the way, the reason why the guy`s English is bad is because he`s JAPANESE.

You have to be mentally retarded to smoke cigarettes. I believe everyone has the right to be retarded, just so long as they do it at home. I mean what kind of person other than a retard would pay thousands of dollars for cancer? If you plan on dieing in an accident before 60 then go ahead and smoke all you want. If you want to see grandchildren and still smoke then you should look forward to their visits while your dieing in a hospital bed.

And heartx3jess, marijuana actually has LESS tar in it than cigarettes, and it`s not smoked as regularly as cigarettes, so it is not more cancerous. You should probably do more extensive research that involves more sources than anti-drug commercials.

there are very few things that you can absolutely prove in medicine, but one of them is that smoking seriously increases your risk of lung cancer. What people don`t think about is that it also increases your risk of emphysema (think of slow death by suffocation while you`re conscious the entire time) and also BLADDER CANCER (meaning you have to piss out of a hole in your side for the rest of your life - sooo sexy). Yay smoking!

^^ Nope, this is a scientifically accepted way of measuring the tar and other chemical content of cigarettes.

I understand that smokers who have smoked for a while will probably not be affected by videos like this, but what I don`t get is why so many people start smoking even after they`ve been shown and told the health risks. IMHO, if the health services were to treat smokers as they`re beginning to treat Obese patients, (i.e. not treating them until they`re sorted out) then we`d see a large decrease in the amount of new smokers.

Smokers will never stop unless they want to.

Experiments like these won`t work to cut down smoking coz lots of smokers have already gone way past caring, and the only way to stop is a myriad of diseases.
