    I like how smoking is apparently so evil that some nonsmokers always feel compelled to come in and just be huge dicks in every smoking thread there ever was

    Look, I don't care, I have friends who smoke, and I accept it. I still hang out with them, even when they're standing there blowing smoke in my face. I deal with it.

    It just seems like a selfish thing to do when you realise how large of an impact it has not on an inividual level, but a national level.

    I'm a non-smoker, but know a fair few smokers at university. When I come home for the holidays I start to miss the smell of sitting with them, especially the ones who smoke pipes.

    Pipes are the answer to all the bad smell problems.

    to any other pipe smokers out there:

    are there any particular blends you enjoy?

    I'm a fan of wilshire, crown royale and black russian, although these may very well be just local flavors.

    funny smoking story:

    blackfriday, at 4 in the morning there was a lady that smoked 12 cigarettes from 4-5 am in the morning... with a young child in the arm that wasn't holding the cigarette. i am not even exaggerating, we counted because we were standing in line downwind from her.

    my mind was blown

    Also I love the smell of cigarettes when they haven't been lit yet. Is that weird?

    I think the anti-smoking lobby are basically just health conscious evangelical Christians. Basically both philosophies amount to "We're doing this for your own good," and "You're too ignorant to know that you're killing yourself, if you understood this, you'd agree with us!" and "Think of the children!"

    I love the "zomg stinky" bitching about smoking. Yes, a lit cigarette gives off a smell. A dirty place that is smoked in daily will smell like smoke. As a smoker, you don't have to smell like either of those things.

    Dear smokers, here's how you avoid smelling like ass: 1) wash your hands after you smoke. 2) wash your clothing more than once every two years 3) keep well-hydrated and don't fill your system with shitty food, and your breath won't stink.

    Voila! Done!

    How about.... don't smoke?

    How about preach elsewhere? I'm a vegetarian who eats better than everybody I know, save for my boyfriend. I longboard or walk damn near everywhere and can last longer on a run than most non-smokers and cyclists I know. I don't drink to the point of drunkenness (anymore), and I don't do drugs (anymore). You want to make this a health issue, fine: I realize that smoking is bad for me.

    BUT GUESS WHAT.

    So is driving, and what a car puts off in an hour can kill you if you stand in a closed garage with it, while 30 smokers in the same garage could smoke for days before it gave them anything other than scorched lungs. The primary killer of Americans is being fat, so before somebody wants to tell me about how terrible my one vice is, they should put down the fucking cheeseburger, try to outrun me sometime, and hopefully have enough breath left over to explain JUST HOW DESTROYED I AM AND HOW I AM DESTROYING EVERYBODY ELSE.

    The best part about being an occasional smoker is that I grew up on a farm and that I'd have to start smoking a pack a day just to stay ahead of all the exciting cancers I'm going to get from pesticides, diesel fumes, and good old fashioned solar radiation.

    I have taken to occasionally have a cigarette when I'm drinking. Any more than one and I feel like shit the next day, though.

    And I pray for the day I can choom on the street corner and blow the smoke in all your uptight non-smoker faces so you will finally unclench and shut the fuck up. You have the airplane. You have the restaurant. You have the fucking bar. Stop bitching.

    Edit: That was not directed at anyone in particular. Just in general.

    I can't say as to the quality of that stuff, nor of tinned tobacco, I've only ever had foul tasting stuff from tins. Not to say that any of those low end, 30 dollar ones are bad, pipe cleaners, a tool, and a decent pipe will take you a long way. If you have no other option, sure, give that stuff a try.

    If you've got a tobacco shop near you, though, you can probably get a corncob pipe for 10 bucks or less, and they last a good long time if you take care of 'em (plus there is all sorts of stupidly fun things you can do with the porous material such as soaking it in certain kinds of liquors), and you can also get relatively more fresh tobacco from jars.

    Duh.

    its a habit, it makes them feel good right then.

    why do people eat products made from white flour? or eat too much sugar? both are unhealthy, can cost a lot, and serve no healthy purpose, but they are enjoyable at that time.

    you guys, doing this is worse than the masturbatory religious threads. smokers know all the stuff you're saying, and pushing it into their faces on an online forum will do nothing but annoy everyone, so settle down

    Haha, yeah. I just get pretty reactionary when people bring up the health thing. I'm a healthy motherfucker with the exception of the smoking thing, and it sucks when there are SO MANY OTHER acceptable, daily activities in America that kill you way faster. We've just been singled out and stigmatized because we smell bad and you can nail down a quantity of harm as opposed to SUVs or cheeseburgers or drinking. Not that drinking isn't being pretty hard hit these days as well.

    Though, call me a dumbass for how much money I spend to smoke.

    Go ahead.

    I will agree with you.

    This wasn't part of my plan but I'm okay with it.

    I don't mind smokers really. I think it's a completely ridiculous habit to have on every level but as long as you don't get any of your smoke near me you can do whatever you want. Smokers also help contribute towards lower taxes for the rest of us so cheers to you you old stinkers!
