    1. Please provide a source for fucking insane information such as the stuff presented in your first paragraph. Or get the fuck out.

    2. Yes, but the smoke is combining with the city air (assuming you live in the city). Also, your "generally accepted scientific standard" is a scientific standard for a reason; it's true and presented by people who have done accurate research.

    Great references there. I'll just believe you instead of all the scientists.

    Did you know that smokers are far more likely than non-smokers to smell like shit, have gross teeth and skin, and eventually die a painful death from lung cancer?

    Thanks for the edit. Us simple people don't know what percentages are. Also, I'd rather have a 0% increase in disease rate than 19% which is fairly significant.

    1. I guess if it's your thing they help you lose your money faster.
    2. I guess if it's your thing you can have a reduced-capacity immune system.
    3. I guess if it's your thing you can cause similar damage to those around you.

    That's the Center For Disease Control. I think they know what they are talking about. Here are some nice tidbits:

    "Smoking causes about 90% of lung cancer deaths in women and almost 80% of lung cancer deaths in men. The risk of dying from lung cancer is more than 23 times higher among men who smoke cigarettes, and about 13 times higher among women who smoke cigarettes compared with never smokers."

    "Smoking causes coronary heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States.1 Cigarette smokers are 2–4 times more likely to develop coronary heart disease than nonsmokers."

    "Cigarette smoking approximately doubles a person’s risk for stroke"

    I could go on.

    I hate when people say "I smoke because I'm stressed". Well you wouldn't NEED a cigarette to cope with stress if you hadn't started.

    Yep, it is the truth...the calming effect of smoking only helps insofar as coping with the stress of not having a cigarette for X amount of time...

    Who gives a shit? Why don't you guys stop beating a dead horse? It's not like smokers aren't already aware that there are big health risks associated with smoking, not to mention the amount of money it costs to maintain the habit. Why the fuck do people ask the question "Why do you smoke?" I would think it should be pretty obvious. The smoker made a stupid decision to start in the first place and now continues to smoke because nicotine is highly addictive. The smoker shouldn't have to defend their habit, because you shouldn't even care in the first place (with the exception of cases in which said habit interferes with your own good health).
