    I don't mind the smell of smoke as much as I used to. Especially after going to Italy, I just sorta went, "ah well let's just put up with this"

    But seriously I didn't say anything that crazy. Smoking is ridiculous, it is. You're free to smoke if you want, you are.

    You're free to argue that if you really want to Fari.

    it's not ridiculous because there IS a benefit of pleasure to it that you refuse to acknowledge

    and i meant to encompass pretty much anything you post in any thread in my statement.

    I can't afford to smoke.

    Nor would I ever.

    But I'm not one of those fucking assholes who are all 'can you please not smoke around me please'.

    Because they'll get cancer long before I ever do from the 2 seconds of smoke I get from them. I live in a huge city. The exhaust fumes from cars pour into my apartment every second of every day and cause no doubt far more potential harm than some smokers second or third hand smoke.

    There is no denying that smokers smell bad though. And kissing smokers is a horrible experience that I'll never repeat.

    But free will is a beautiful thing. I have no doubt some people in the world look upon my incredibly casual alcohol consumption as unholy and poisoning. Everyone hates something they find abhorrent to the next level.

    Plus I probably couldn't smoke. I have asthma. It would be bad for me. Well, more than normally.

    You're this close to being crossed off my Christmas card list for good Fari.

    I am going to continue to refuse that there's a benefit of pleasure. Or any pleasure there is is outweighed by the massive down sides. Those are my reasons why I don't smoke. I don't expect anyone else not to.

    what the fuck is this

    Why do you feel a duty to make your stance known repeatedly in this thread
    this thread for smokers to talk about how they like to smoke

    you don't understand the thing that smokers like about smoking
    fucking accept that

    I don't smoke because of the very serious threat it could place on my career as a singer. I know string players who smoke, but usually woodwind and brass also avoid it.

    It's pretty gross to go to one of those beach cleanup things and see how many cigarette butts there are in the sand.

    For me, smoking actually acts as a really good motivator. "Clean through these burners and get the heads cleared quickly and you're that much closer to being able to sit down, relax, sit in front of your shift drink, and smoke a cigarette."

    It's also a great way to not have to be around people. I get social anxiety like whoa, and all I have to do is pop outside with a bunch of other like-minded people who aren't so much interested in talking as they are escaping.

    The main reason I won't quit, though... is the post-coital cigarette. My GOD, nothing feels better. Except maybe the sex itself.

    I guess I just can't understand why you'd consciously spend (a large amount of) money to do something that has no positive benefit.

    Well, it depends on what you mean by "positive benefit." For one thing, it's a noncompeting stimulant with caffeine and increases bloodflow to the brain. Many people who rely on creativity for school or work find that it helps to overcome writer's block (and similar afflictions for other artforms) and reduce stress.

    I have a hookah that I smoke pretty regularly.

    Also, the herb.

    No cigarettes though, because that would make me an awful person.

    I'm waiting till my job situation is settled, then I might consider returning to smokin'. Really is a relaxing thing to do, and I tend to use it as a reward system for doing shit that needs to get done.

    If I try to use something like WoW as a reward, I'll end up wasting 6 hours leveling; so what's a little poison here and there between productivity.

    i bought two boxes of Djarum Blacks today because i had them at a party the other night and liked them

    i only got two packs because it was a minimum of $15 for credit and i didn't have any cash on me. I kind of regret it, though

    Sometimes I smoke hookah or the occasional cigar. i might look into getting a pipe

    Well it's not like smoking anything is going to be good for you. Marijuana can be used for medicinal purposes, but it doesn't seem like a doctor would say "okay, take this for the rest of your life and you'll be golden"

    Fortunately there's other ways to get it into your system, like vaporizers. Those things are great.
