    Reaper171, don`t be a moron, it`s not 200 million it`s 200 BILLION that`s lost. And I find it interesting that you are trying to defend an economic sink (how much money is a life worth economically in lost labor?) by saying that it helps our economy. The money that is spent on cigarettes wouldn`t just be lost... it would be shifted to other uses that probably wouldn`t kill 443,000 people each year.

    Why do people assume smokers smoke because they think it`s cool?

    I don`t give two poos about what other people think about me, I smoke because I enjoy it. I know it`s not cool, and I know it`s bad for me, but I`m going to die anyway.

    You dont enjoy it. At all. Your body craves the myriad of drugs contained in each cigarette. You are addicted to a drug. Plain and simple.

    As for dying anyway, why dont you just go drink bleach or shoot yourself in the head. At least you wont be causing others to suffer through your lack of consideration for them.

    I love to smoke. I don`t smoke cigarettes like Marlboro or Kool or whatever those major companies are I never enjoyed them. I prefer a pipe, cigar or hand rolled cigarettes there`s much more fun to the process of getting it ready then just pulling it out of pack. I think the same applies to enjoying vinyl in the age of the mp3.

    On a side note, some people don`t get addicted. I smoke maybe once or twice a month and usually just at social gatherings/parties etc. And it`s because I want to to.

    I really hate people who smoke around me :/ It is a horrible smell, and it sticks to everything. Its awful. My fiancee smokes and I really wish he would stop,(only for health reasons, I mean, he smokes and has asthma wth xD ) But if he does smoke I wish he would at least do it outside or in the basement or something :/

    I`m not sure how long you`ve been `smoking socially` for but for 90% of smokers I think, smoking once or twice a month `socially` is exactly how the addicted smoker starts. It always escalates as you become addicted and begin to crave smokes even when you`re not drinking.

    That being said, by all means if you need or want or have to smoke, go for it although I`m sorry you have to leave the bar to smoke now, even though it makes me happy. I spent 7 hours in a smoking room once for a Christmas party and lost my voice for about 6 days =/

    But hey! I`m one of 5 out of 100 that quit! Everyone should try my method.
    Step 1: Dress for the cold weather that morning!
    Step 2: Sit on the deck as the sun comes out and start pounding back Cointreau Martini`s and smoking cigs
    Step 3: light up a joint
    Step 4: throw up all

    Step 5: count yourself lucky that cigs are what got turned off of :D

    Anyway, Hokage47 I hope you don`t become addicted, for your health`s sake...

    Even though I know you will.

    "Urrrrgh it smells, I`m gonna die from second hand smoke!!!" Get over it! And to moan about that while walking through the city? An AMERICAN city at that? Have you any idea how many hundreds of tonnes of crap get belched out around you each day? Why don`t you complain about that as well? After all, just like the smoking, it`s going to severely impair your quest to live life like a picture of health isn`t it? Sorry? You were on your way to McD`s before you head home to sit on your ass doing nothing? Ah.....

    Congrats dude! Bet you can`t wait for that Celebratory Smoke... I mean Drink!!

    Whoops, let me motivate you some more then. It takes 2 days to get over the nicotine fix, so you don`t have that any more. 5 days ago, your risk of a stroke was half what it was a week before. And in 2 more days, your lungs will have repaired about a quarter of the damage done to them over however long you smoked, although it will take up to a year to fully repair.

    Basically, if you`ve gone 12 days, you`re healing beautifully, and if you take it up again, its not because of any chemical craving, its your own pisspoor willpower.

    Stay Smokeless and boned, dude.

    24900000000/100 = 249,000,000 * 3 = 747,000,000
    That means that $747 million is spent on anti-tobacco campaigns. How much do you need??
