Thread: [Health] Do you smoke?

    No.

    I don't even like the smoke off a struck match, let alone sitting beside someone smoking.

    Well, what if you don't smoke very often? I mean I smoke once a week compared to some people I know who do it 10 times a day. There is a big difference.

    my grandpa died of emphysema smoking camel non-filters. but he was old. he was like "dying age" anyway. ireally miss that old man.
    but...i think he'd be dead of something else by now if he didn't die of that. and he loved his camels. so i'm of the opinion that his smoking was ok.

    I've never had one. Smoking was something only the cool kids did when I was at school.

    I wasn't one of them!

    Okay, what if you become addicted? Nicotine is a powerfully addictive substance. You may develop the urge to smoke more often as your body needs more nicotine. My grandfather near the end was smoking two plus packs of Pall Malls with no filters a day. Why smoke if you don't need to?

    I thought I'd seen it all, but this is new: a thread asking people if they smoke and then criticising them because they don't.

    All my friends and relatives who died of cancer died of the non-smoking induced kinds. With a handful of exceptions, all my relatives, smoking and non-smoking, still lived into their 80s and 90s. I've been smoking for 49 years; quitting now would probably kill me.

    Funny thing about the smell bit. When I moved back into the old homestead, I smoked inside. My brother would come down on weekends - he's a vehement anti-smoker and I didn't smoke inside when he was home. After about 3 years of this, my son was home for a visit and asked, in front of my brother, if I smoked inside. I said yeah. My brother had no idea - but after that, the smell bothered him. Go figure...
