    Smoking/Smokers?

    Keep this off the political side, I'm not trying to start a war here.

    Canadian and American cigarettes seem to be a lot unhealthier than European/South American brands. I notice that everyone from around here who smokes always regrets it, while Europeans I meet are more casual about it and enjoy every bit of it.

    What's everyone's take on smoking?

    My personal opinion...

    There's nothing wrong with smoking; it's abusing tobacco that causes problems. I've smoked numerous times over the last 3 years and I haven't gotten addicted/had health issues and I get no cravings; it's just a social thing and I don't even intend on smoking in the future. I think all these health issues all boil down to abuse. Maybe that's why cigar smokers are usually much healthier than chain/cigarette smokers? People get addicted to smoking because cigarettes come in packs of small sticks. A cig only lasts ~5 minutes, so people are more likely to grab another one later. Over time, that causes addiction because of the amount of nicotine. Cigar users, on the other hand, don't inhale the smoke and usually don't smoke often; they seem to just enjoy sitting back and relaxing with a smoke, not worrying about feeding a craving.

    Moral: In moderation, anything is fine. Abuse of anything will never lead to anything positive.

    Re: Smoking/Smokers?

    I used to smoke cigarettes with my friends, but I quit that almost 2 years ago. I was always having a few drinks when I was smoking, and later I realized how discusting it is and how much I actually hated it. I dislike cigars just as much. I'm very glad I stopped before it became a habbit.

    Honestly, I can't stand smoking. But I usually keep my opinions to myself.

    I've been been struggling with quit attempts for a year. The longest I went was 6 months w/o. Cigarettes are the devil Bobby.

    I did for 6 months. I've been on and off since. It's been really disappointing.

    European cigarettes are healthier than American cigarettes? Lol. Now I've heard it all.
