    Why do people still smoke I don't get it.

    There are tables to take so you can get the nicotine fix and electric cigarettes so you can see smoke and have something in your mouth. There is nothing good about smoking, it's expensive and will cause problems down the road. Yet people still pick up the habit and others make excuses not to quite and they get mad at you for not being ok with it.

    Because they enjoy smoking. Stop being judgmental whores people.

    My God, some people like to drink, others like to smoke, others like to eat McDonalds, we all know these things arent healthy for us yet we do them anyways. Reason being? Self destruction makes us feel better, to a certain extent.

    People have smoked, they will smoke, and will continue to smoke even if we ban cigarettes.

    I dont get why people go onto threads only to judge others who do a certain activity they do not do themselves. Because everyone is different thats why.

    I think it's the "it won't happen to me" mentality. Maybe they can't imagine themselves pale and drooling, sitting in a recliner, numb with opioids, the people they love sitting around waiting for them to die.

    I wonder the same thing sometimes.
    Same with seatbelts.

    I think it's mainly addiction and control.

    Well we all now know American fast food kills too, but people still eat it, and ignore all the warnings. But life has no guarantees, we all die sometime.

    Addicted to what?

    There are nicotine pills that have none of the negative side effects of cigarettes and you can buy electronic cigarettes to have something in your mouth and see smoke.

    I think the better question is "Why do people start smoking?"

    Everyone knows the risks. How in the world you can make a conscious decision to start smoking in the 21st century is utter lunacy.

    ELECTRONIC CIGARETTES you still get nicotine, you still have something in your mouth, you still get smoke. I work with a lot of guys who smoke and I could not stand the smell so I got them all these and now they are down to one or two real cigarettes a day. Why do more people not use these?

    Nope, deal with it. My point was: you can't change people. You can, however, educate yourself with prevention.

    Point to where I say "Everyone must stop smoking or else"

    Question for you: Does the smell of smoke make you feel sick and do you have to work around people who smoke all day?

    Not asking everyone to stop smoking but wondering why people spend tons of money on something they don't have to and do something this is knowing harmful to themselves and others. Guess you think we should legalize all illegal drugs as well and let people shoot coke all day if they want and rape women as go ahead then, then get them addicted as well and have coke babies. Ever seen how tragic that can be?

    Dude, seriously, an hero. Look into it. The world would be a better place without you.

    Do you even read what you write? Your posts in this thread reaks of judgment. We get it, you dont like cigarettes. You dont get it, no one cares. Fact of the matter is people do shit I dont like and approve of all day long. For some reason, YOU think that because YOU dont like cigarettes everyone else should stop smoking because YOU dont want them too. Get over yourself and move on with your life.

    Or better yet, grow the fuck up child. We dont need anymore egotistical generation Y in this house.
