And parkinsons!!! YAY... hack, hack. Cigarrettes do a serious number on you, especially with the added chemicals, not because of them. Niccotine may be very similar a vitamin, but niccotine is the addictive substance, not the carcinogen. Hell, the active chemical in mushrooms is similar to ceretonin (i think, one of those cool brain chemicals). Doesn't make it a good choice, though.

I have to agree that pot is not very dangerous, however. I quit smoking pot because I have to be a more reliable person at this time. It just makes some people lazy as hell (me). Some people can twerk it, some can't. I know folks that are lazy without it.

Just do what you know is right, don't worry about all the comments and opinions and studies. Examine how you feel inside. Do you feel good about what you are doing or not? Roll with it.

Active User, very eHealthy
Face It Man.
In the long run nothing is good for us, absolutely nothing.
Our best option is to struggle daily for our health so that we can grow old and then get sick and die.

so does coffee, soda, ect. I went to med. school for a medical assistant. It is technically not a proven fact that smoking ALONE causes everything they sayit does. There are other things factured in as well. I have had this argument for nearly 5 years now. When the studies can say that smoking alone causes somethng bad WITHOUT any other factures involved with a human, then the non-smokers can start preaching. When I was pregnant with my twins, my doctor asked if I still smoked. I told them that I took a few hits here and there especially when my nerves were shot. They told me that if I quit straight out, the the nic fits I would have would cause the babies more harm than "taking that hit when needed". And this was a Woman" specialty hospital. Exhaust fumes, people who wear too much perfume, heck, you name it can "harm the environment". I have to appologize to the world because it is the YUPPIES of my generation who started all this crap. What eer happen to just living?????

Smoking and other factors. Sure I will go with that. Smoking plus other factors cause all the bad stuff. So, what are the other factors?? How easily can they be changed? Also, does smoking really do anything for you. It makes it so you are stressed out and need a hit. If you never smoked, you would never need the hit, nor would you get stressed out. You are paying good money to make yourself stressed out so you can smoke.

Anyways, you are saying it takes two or more things for all the bad stuff to happen. Okay, sure, but that is no excuse to smoke. If you removed smoking as one of the factors that creates health problems, would you not have a decreased risk of various health issues??

Your logic is wonky. Smoking alone does not cause health problems, so it is okay to smoke. That is just bs. Smoking is one of the factors, so why not get rid of as many factors/dangers as possible? Smoking, high fatty foods, lack of exercise, high blood pressure, can lead to a heart attack. Common sense suggest you try to elminate as many of those problems as you can, so you do not drop dead at the mall while shopping. Smoking would be one of those factors.

But, yeah, go ahead and keep on living. Nothing more beautiful as seeing a 40 year old or 50 year old person slowly dying in hospital cursing himself for ever starting smoking. Whishing he can turn back the clock and tell the younger version of himself to never put the things in his mouth.

all I was saying was that "people" are so concentrated on just smoking by itself. I have seen a person smoke a pack and a half a day and went in for an angiogram. The reason for that test was a completely DIFFERENT cause. The doc was amazed because her lungs looked like she had never smoked a day in her life. Heart attacks, strokes, cancer...it's also all genetic. What I'm saying is that smoking ALONE doesn't cause all these problems. I agree that you should take out these factors. But, I also don't agree with how this world has become so fanatic over health. My twins are underweight for their age, ect. and because obesity is a big problem now, my girls have to suffer in school with 1% milk, and all lowfat low calorie foods. They spend most of their day in school and so when they get home, I have to let them eat as much high calorie foods and fattening foods. Let's just say that with me and my family, we were basically told by a few doctors that we ARE to eat "junk" food. So in conclusion....all I am saying is that some person or group decided that the way we all are is unhealthy weather it be food or smoking! They never took into consideration that these diseases are genetic and they should have never blamed society for their health issues.

Wow, sounds like someone tried way to hard to justify their addictions
Regardless of whether something is good or bad for you, think of the price, it is nearly 6 bucks a pack for cigs at a gas station and still almost 5 at drug stores. Perhaps if smokers invested this 5-6 bucks a day into say a health insurance savings account or health insurance they would be better off in the long run

For all of you trying to justify smoking, I doubt any of you have seen a loved one dying in the hospital, suffocating on the foam coming out of their mouths because of emphysema.

You only get one body. I would think twice before I knowingly put a harmful substance inside of it

I am not justifying smoking!!!!!!!! What I am merrily saying is that marijuana. cocaine, exhaust fumes, Alcohol, (any other factors you can think of???) all do us harm!!!!!! So, why are the smokers alone getting targeted?? I only smoke 4 cigs a day. And, when I am around non-smokers all day, I go without. I do enjoy going into a restaurant now and not smelling smoke residue. Now, though, I go in and smell everything. Especially people who have body oder or very strong perfume on. Then, I get sick and can't eat. No, those smells won't harm my body, but I'd rather not smell at all. It's bad enough that this world has gone to heck. They want children to get enough sleep, be active in spoirts, and be extra smart. People want to concentrate on being too healthy. We have more important things to "fix". You all have opinions. Just don't get on us smokers!!!!!!!! Most of us will maybe quit someday. But, to all those who don't smoke, wuit, or whatever...DON'T PREACH YOU ARE NOT PERFECT!!!!!!!!!

Well I don't care why other people type about smoking. She nice I am a non smoker, I am not going to start. Being healthy is a good thing. I would rather live a healthy and a happy life than getting drunk and starting to smoke. P.S: I am a non smoker and a non drinker. I drink juice, water, tea and so on but just not beer, wine , And so on............... I am never going to start these things. It's a big NO to me. Smile
