Thread Name: BS: Smoking cigarettes
Subject: RE: BS: Smoking cigarettes
Like I said, this isn't about death. Everybody dies. It's about quality of life in between now and when you do eventually die...and it's about what you are doing to other people's quality of life due to your addiction. I thank God my parents did not smoke, because it certainly would have bothered me, and I might have ended up imitating them.
Cigarettes stink, and so, unfortunately, do smokers. How many beautiful women have I seen in my life whom I might have wanted to go out with, had they not smelled like ashtrays when you got up close to them? Yuck. Talk about being oblivious to the obvious...
I guess that sense of smell (and taste) become a bit stunted after one has been smoking awhile. Yeah, that must be it...
Note that all animals will retreat from the smell of cigarette smoke, and try to avoid it. Only people are stupid enough to inhale it. Same goes for marijuana smoke, by the way.
