Title: Smoking: Your Opinion on It.
Post by: kylepeanut12 on July 22, 2012, 05:19 pm
Trending ftw!

I think smoking is pretty much suicide. Did you know if you smoke 4 cigarettes a day for 6 months, you already have taken off a year of your life? Think of what smoking a pack a day, that would take about 2 or 3 years off your life in 6 months.

In December 2009, I lost my Grandma due to lung cancer. The story started in the spring of 2009. She went to her doctor, and her doctor told her to stop smoking. She started going down to smoking one cigarette a week. Then when that pack was gone, she stopped until we went to there house for a week in the summer. Her and my mom went to the casino, and when they came back, they filled my grandma's car up with gas. My mom was going to pay for it and get them something to drink, but my grandma said "oh, you don't have to do that, it's my car, I will pay for the gas and our drinks." My grandma goes in and buys everything- and a pack of cigarettes. My mom and grandpa found them near her jewelry station in the laundry room when my mom was doing laundry, there were only 3 cigarettes left, and she bought them the night before.

When she died, I made a promise for the sake of me, and my future, that I would never smoke, ever in my life. Smoking will kill you, slowly and painfully, so if you wanna go ahead and smoke, go ahead and smoke, wear your life down till there's no more life left.

That is my opinion on smoking, go ahead and post your's, I really wanna hear from you guys!

This song by Metallica is about drugs and how bad they are and what they will do to you. Listen and read the lyrics carefully:

But most of those people are smokers themselves, who are driven to think that by a chemical addiction, not logic.

Smoking should be banned.

The only reason it isn't is the amount of tax it generates.

I'm never going to smoke.

cool people smoke there4 u should smoke 2

Hehe actually I don't care if people do it. Your life choices, not mine... If it was say, my Mom doing it (she smokes sometimes not often) I'd try to get her to stop but I'm not going to harass people for it.


My stepmom would always stop and yell at people smoking in public...

Smoking really brings no benefits except for the people who make the product which earn millions while people are killing themselves are making their health worse because of smoking it can also affect other peoples health who are around smokers so it should just be made illegal.

Thankful People:tfandmetalmusic
If it was banned crime rates would rise, because people would steal so they could afford illegal tobacco. there would also be more people jobless(cigarette companies) therefore damaging the economy even more.

People being alive is more important than the economy. Also, can you imagine someone's grandma going to the black market to buy cigarettes?

If it weren't for the fact that it'd severely damage the economy, it'd be banned.

smoking is a choice. people who smoke know the risks. why should non smokers suffer higher crime rates and a weaker economy to help those who chose to put their life at risk.

Because most of them chose to put their life at risk because of stupidity, peer pressure, etc. If smoking was banned, death would drastically go down. The only crime that would occur as a result of this would be the illegal trade of cigarettes.

No...

As I said, can you imagine anyone's grandma buying cigs on the black market?

Also, black market cigarettes likely wouldn't be as expensive as shop bought ones, because tax is avoided on them. If anything, then less people would have to steal to afford them.

You also seem to think that all smokers are hardcore crazed criminals who'd do anything to get cigs. The reality is that that just isn't true.

I know someone who smoked 2 packs a day for 29 years, he had a horrible stroke because of it too. I will never do it.

when they banned alcohol in some parts of the United sates it caused more crime than it reduced.

Depends what you smoke, though. Cigarettes will kill you easily, but Cigars don't do anything. Still, I hate smokers. Whenever someone is by me, and is smoking, I always cough because of the smoke I'm inhaling. I lost my math teacher to smoking, and she was the only good teacher I had. Bottomline, if you smoke cigarettes, you might as well be blowing the life out of yourself, along with the smoke.

Someone I knew died at the age of 27 from heroin overdose. They also found out he did meth, chewed tobacco, and smoked. He developed lung cancer 2 days after he died. The heroin was the cause of his death, but if he didn't overdose, he'd still die from his smoking issues.

It would cost more because the dealers would just keep raising the prices just like what happens with cannabis.
