Okay. Non-smokers. Chill the drat out. All of your bitching and moaning at the smokers that it will kill them will not make them stop. The big drating warning on the package telling them that cigarettes are bad and going to kill them doesn`t stop them. The amount of smoke you get walking by a smoker is not going to kill you. It might be annoying and smell bad, but it won`t kill you. Chill. The Drat. Out.

Damn, I want a cigarette now.

At least they are being honest.

If you don`t want to get cancer, then don`t.

It`s funny though.
"kindly piss-off"

Kinda like "Please, shut up"

EPIC.

I am compelled to add a Reality Check here people - if you live in a city of more than 50,000 people, you are ingesting more of the same chemicals in cigarettes than a smoker who smokes a pack a day but lives in the sticks, every day, just from the air in your city. Moving 10km beyond the suburbs of any major city is the equivalent of cutting out a pack and a half of 12mg cigarettes per day.

I just don`t understand people that feel the need to remind me that smoking will kill me. I tend to stay away from entrance/exit doors and usually will try to be considerate of other people, but I`ve been given the "coughing treatment" by people 30 feet away with me UP wind from them. Honestly people, calm the frick down. My answer to them was to walk around them so the smoke *was* blowing on them. If I`m gonna be persecuted might as well do something wrong ;p

CrakrJack, could you please stop blaming every article on those damned liberals?

But anyways, it`s amazing to me how every post in this can be easily separated into smoker, nonsmoker, and anti-smoker.

Do the anti-smokers who walk up to a person smoking and cough or say "smoking is bad" also walk up to people at McDonald`s, waddle and puff out their cheeks, feign a heart attack, or say that fast food is bad and they hope fat people never reproduce? Do they walk into a bar and say they wish everyone in the bar dies of liver failure to get rid of all the depressed losers quicker?

I would certainly hope not. Then why is it acceptable to deride those who use tobacco in designated areas, generally outside and away from others?

Overall, I`ve noted smokers to actually be good people and considerate of nonsmokers. Nonsmokers understand that it`s a choice, and one they don`t agree with. Many nonsmokers even smoke a cigar every now and again. Anti-smokers are dicks.

The current liberal campaign against smokers is stupid. After all if they truly want child healthcare funded by the tax revenues on tobacco, Shouldn`t they want as many people smoking as possible ? As it stands now $1.01 tax per pack, Increased from $.39, Is raising the price so high now that people are quitting in record numbers.
So, After smokers dwindle to only a privileged few, Where will the liberals get the money to fund child healthcare ?

I`ll answer my own question. From another high tax on other so called "Sins". Don`t worry eventually they`ll get to one of yours, By then it`ll be to late to stop them.

With the air full of car exhaust fumes, smoke is probably a relief for your lungs. Car exhaust fumes will kill you if you run your car in a closed garage, cigarette smoke can`t be as bad.

Stop knocking smokers, if you can pick up a stick that tells you in bold writing that it contains every disease and cancer-producing element known to man, light it and stick it in your mouth, and ENJOY it, man, these are the guys we need on the Front Line man.

Not trying to be an ass, but how do you know that? I`m allergic to garlic. F*cks my sh*t up, big time. But I`ll have a hard time believing the doctor who rubs his chin sagely and says "ah yes, this is due to the penne arribiata you had last saturday"

I don`t know a single smoker who goes around maliciously blowing smoke in the faces of infants. Most of us are conscientious, and try to stick to the ever-decreasing allowed smoking zones.

And as for the whole "smoking is bad for you" meme. Newsflash, we know. So is beer, so is eating bacon for breakfast, so is McDonalds, so is crossing the f*cking street.

We get it. My life, my choice.

And if you choose to hang out in a designated smoking area (whatever few square feet are left), and thereafter suffer from chronic lung disease, then that`s your choice of wher to hang out.

Besides, who knows, maybe you just have athsma? Just sa

yoimmylene, either you are spending too much time in bars for a 13 year old or your parents are exposing you to smoke. Either way, that`s not right, I always go outside for a smoke so nothing is harmed other than the occasional hedgehog in my garden which coughs on it`s way past.

ConverseUK "breathing in harmful substances isn`t exactly wise". I never said I didnt agree. At the same time (depending on the substance) there is no factual proof that you wil be effected. I`m simply defending one side of the arguement. I wouldnt promote smoking to anyone even though I am a smoker. Just dont belive everything the goverment or the media states. truths can be twisted....and no I couldnt die. I`ve never quite quit as it is...but I`ve taken yearly breaks on occasions!

motownc. Rule no 1! Dont post ANYTHING you can not back up! I was simply replyiny to your BS statement about GMT and us inventing time! We did not! Anything you try to argue is irrelevant!

Oh and stop watching so much Star Trek! Time IS linear for us so deal with it!

Thanks a lot, cigarettes! Your harmful chemicals and toxic gases are raising the percentage of young people with breathing problems and slowly killing off others in various ways. I hope those of you who support this type of thing are happy with yourselves! :-D

...Yeah, I`m obviously still pretty ticked from when my doctor told me I had that kind of problem.

A, I was being somewhat facetious on the inventing time thingy. Time is an abstract concept created by a race of beings living in a 3 dimensional world trying to comprehend a 4th dimension. Time isn`t linear, hours minutes, days or weeks have no real meaning. It`s just our feeble attempt at trying to comprehend something beyond our sphere of understanding.

B, You are having a go at me for something I didn`t write.

In the last 150+ years this has been kicked silly against statistics and any scientist who wants to make a name for themselves. If 2 smokers in 100 compared to .5 in a 100 non smokers develop lung cancer then thats now acceptable by goverment standards. Guess what...those are the statistics. dont buy into goverment "well being" BS because most of it is made up by halfwits. for example...2 years ago Tea had links to testicular cancer, yet 9 months later it was linked to pronlonged life! this is all on google!

Top marks for stating the bleedin` obvious maddog...

Of course not all smokers develop cancer...the idea of that is simply ludicrous! But it has been proven time and time again beyond reasonable doubt that smoking is not healthy.

Let`s skip the whole lung cancer thing for a second. Simple common sense tells us that breathing in harmful substances isn`t exactly wise.

But, of course, smoking is an addiction. The thought of that next fag...the thought of that buzz...gah I bet its so good you could practically...die?

Lolwut?, as the kids say these days. You`ve got more respect for the heroin addict who breaks into your home and sells your laptop, car, and wife`s panties on Ebay to feed his underground drug habit than you do for your work colleague who takes an occasional cigarette break in a designated smoking area?

May I respectfully suggest that that`s a wee bit strong?

Double LOL at you for buying into the modern scientific method which has been raped silly by goverments in the last 50 years. A "link too" isnt "proof of". Smoking is linked to cancer because more smokers develop lung cancer (for example)..but not ALL smoker develop lung cancer! John Snow

"Tell that to the car drivers or anyone else who uses fossil fuels. I live in a house made of mud and reeds and use no external energy sources. I jog everywhere. My laptop is powered by squirrels on a treadmill. Smokers are not the sole origin of pollution in the world. "

Interestingly enough, the average North American residential household is responsible for less than 10% of the global pollution. Industries, the gigantic cargo boats and extremely heavy machinery is what causes most of the pollution...

(I made up the 10%, but it`s to discern that it`s a small fraction)

Plus 35% of all deaths are caused by modifiable risk factors (including smoking, drinking, obesity, poor diet, lack of exercise, unsafe sex, urban air pollution, coal use! and healthcare mistakes).

Less red blood cells? I`d like to see your research on that. In the end getting cancer? It increases the risk but not as significantly as you`d think. Your risk of lung cancer is, in the UK, 1 in 1579. If smoking increases that risk by 15% (less for a light smoker like myself) that only results in odds of 1 in 1343. So to summarise, non-smoker 0.06% chance of cancer and smoker 0.07% chance of cancer.
