Me too, with smokers. I think, non-smokers naturally have a tendency to criticize or judge smokers, especially younger ones like myself. "Why would you do that? It's expensive; it smells; it's going to kill you" and so forth. And I find I get along better with my smoker friends who get the same treatment, and we're careful to judge others in that way. At least that's the way I feel.

"Smoking is a bad habit"


no it is not a bad habit.it is just a habit.

I smoked,am smoking and will smoke.Some say it kills me.Everything on the Earth can kill me.Non-smokers,open your eyes,we're living on a dangerous planet.

and a translation of mine from a Turkish Poet:

Behold,glimmering packages of cigarettes on shop windows
What a perfect scene:Some old and classic,some new and funny
If you ask me:"which one is the most harmful?"
I would say:the one you don't smoke....

It is a surprise to me every time I think about it, use heroin or any other hard drug and folk fall out of trees to offer help and support. Free needle exchange etc. Addicted to gambling? we can help. Out of all the terrible things folk willingly put into themselves, why is it only smokers are demonised. A legal product by which many small businesses survive, which creates legitimate employment across industries and contributes billions in taxes to our political system. When was the last time you heard of a murder committed to get tobacco? I don't smoke, but I despise the way smokers are treated, compared to those who choose an addiction which supports crime.

Therefore stop smoking habit . Smoking is bad for your health. Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body.

Oh sure, let me get right on that. :wink:
For me, it's a matter of quality of life versus quantity of money. I like smoking. I like having to leave my desk and walk outside to smoke a cigarette at work. The non-smokers are the ones who work through their breaks and wonder why they're always so stressed out. I like smokers versus non-smokers. I like people who are tolerant. Yup, it's not the greatest habit in the world, but probably the only reason I'll quit is money. If I won the lottery, I'd probably die of emphysema and be smoking on my deathbed.
That, and the fact that I'm stressed and aggravated easily as it is without trying to quit smoking. Other addicts go to rehab to quit their habits, but there are no smoking rehabs. Why? I honestly don't know. Maybe we should start one. Hmm. It would probably be fairly profitable...and if the price was low enough I bet insurance companies would get on board...hmm...

A song about cigarette...

And there are many poems devoted to the tobacco, in my culture.

Such a thing, which can inspire poems, songs, etc, should not be erased from the earth.

Is there any songs about "vegetarian cuisine", for example?

Healthy or unhealthy-this is not the question.

The question is "romantic" or "not romantic" for me...

i couldn't understand anything, again. Perhaps it is not about english, it is about my low IQ level...

I'd be deeply offended - if I could remember what this is all about.

My current theme song is "Unwell" by Matchbox 20.

I was thinking Del Shannon's "Runaway" but vegetarianism just makes me want to run......away.

(: anyway.
Smoking is good. Vegetarianism is bad. We primitive Homo Erectus know how to enjoy life better than them.
