Well that's fine you won't be dating for another 10 years anyways by that time you will mature and stop being ignorant. We could care less that you don't like smoking just because someone smokes or drinks doesn't mean you have to trash talk it. Does that mean you are going to yell at your parents because they probably drink wine or beer on the occasion?
Fair enough. You are entitled to your own opinion. I used to think the same thing. And it is completely valid. I'm not saying you have to like cigarettes. I'm saying it's not necessary to criticize those who do.
Kissing someone who smokes regularly is a lot like licking a concrete floor.
I like that analogy. It paints a picture.
But I disagree with it (on some level).
I feel like people connect regular smokers with bad hygiene, when that's not a valid connection.
Point: You can smoke regularly and still have good oral hygiene.
But if you don't take care of yourself, that analogy is pretty accurate.
Stupid politicians thinking they can decide what is best for everyone again ;p.
If smoking only affected you I would agree. But as a nonsmoker I can tell you I really hate it when I have to be near that crap. Even outside.
So I am usually happy for (or at least indifferent towards) restrictions/taxes/whatever on cigarettes.
If you want to do it in your own house... that's fine. As long as I don't have to be near it. Although most smokers I know don't even smoke in their own house because they know it sucks and makes everything reek.
I agree with you.
Or at least understand why you feel that way.
You're right. Smoking doesn't only affect the smoker (if it's happening in a public place), which is why I never get offended if I'm asked to move somewhere else. I think it's completely reasonable if you don't like smoking. It's not just my air to breathe. I respect that.
my mate came back from cuba with AMAZING cigarettes, I had allready stopped smoking but i smoked these,
apperently theres two kinds of tobbaco, one is cheap to produce and gets people hooked faster the other one is the pleasant one that got people into smoking in the first place, cigars and cigarettes are an aquired taste and how would you aquire that in the first place? marketing and aiming smorkin at kids thats how.
anyway if you want to quit i found a great way, when you are quiting you dont say "I am quiting" you say "I have quit" the trick is not to break it down into stopping but to straight out cold turkey
My brother claims that reason people can't quit is because they don't want to -- but rather are trying to quit because they "think they should". Though they still desire to smoke because they enjoy it. But if they actually wanted to quit, it wouldn't be that hard.
He's a regular but not super-heavy smoker, but he also talks out of his ass a lot so I don't know if I believe him.
Nicotine is a drug, and an extremely addictive one, and like with all drugs some people will find it easier to quit than others. My mother quit cold turkey in the 80's and hasn't smoked since. I have quit in the past but am having a lot of difficulty quitting now, it doesn't help that my gf doesn't want to quit so I'm around it everyday.
