Ruki: I agree on the fact that passive smoking is annoying for non-smokers, and that some fools always running around drunk in a club with sigarets lighting everyone thats just dumb and if someone does that they usually are not that nice people, but still i want to remind you that not all germans are nazi's, in other words not all smokers do the shit you described. for instance if im in a public place i ask if ppl mind that i smoke and i wouldnt dare to burn people with my sigarets. as last i want to say that if you are eating in a restaurant, and some smoker lights a sigaret in your facinity, that there are other ways of expressing to them you dont like them smoking near you like asking? im sure most smokers are willing to put it out for that moment while you finish your meal...
Heh, majority will never ask if they can light a cigarete or not. They will simply light it whenever they want and practicaly wherever they want. I saw people smoking in the middle of hospital, I saw people smoking in non-smokers room in restaurant, I saw people smoking even in phone boot... I know that all people aren't same and so all smokers aren't same but this is what can be experienced by majority of smokers. There are always bright exceptions. And no I won't ask them if they can stop smoking, it should be them who should ask if they can smoke. I don't care if they smoke till they choke but not when they affect me with it. It is their right to smoke (for now in my country) but it is my right that noone bothers me. And I find smoking very disturbing. Again i repeat: I have nothing against a smoker until his smoke is affecting me.

I think smoking is bad for people who do sports and stuff, but if you're just a chilloutgansta then you shouldn't care what's in your mouth as long you can light that shieeet

Smoking's great for its anti-stress purposes. Other than that, you're a total fine person for smoking (unless you have a sexy sexy name like Jordy or play LX under the nickname Screams. Then, you're very very not fine personed and very sexy). I wouldn't do it.

nice to see we are staying on topic :)


well, first of all, ill answer the VERY first question.

no, the government does not make money, or at least not much, from raising taxes on smokes. 20 million isnt that much relative to the entire economy's income. more like a penny in a mountain of quarters.



okay, since about 25 posts have been about the morality of smoking, ll throw my 2 cents in :)


although tobacco is natural, it is however processed with many delicious poisons, at the cost of your health. now, im not saying your gonna die in a matter of years, or even decades, of smoking, but i will tell you this: after a while you will not feel as good as you used to.

also, saying that you dont want to live to be 90 is kinda lame. my parents have told me since i was very small that "everyone has to die from something" whenever i have questioned thier motives for smoking, which is actually an ok philosophy, but talking about life and death at so young an age is kinda dumb (i dont know how old most of you are, but im pretty sure nobody here is 30 yet). when you get to be older, or maybe on your deathbed, trust me, you will want EVERY. LAST. SECOND.
your current conscious mind will only experience one life and remember it (i said that so that nobody should dispute religion in this thread)


okay, with that said, i would like to say that i am neither for or against smoking. its more of an extra activity in your life than the sin everyone has made it out to be. consider skateboarding for instance. you could easily end your life at a very young age doing that, mess up and shatter the back of your skull, splinter any of your bones, or even eliminate yourself from the genepool (testicles! they are not meant to landed on!) and all of this, i would say, is worse than smoking any cigarrette. tobacco is a natural stress reliever, as is tea. "burning something and inhaling it" isnt good for you, but neither is breathing when you look at it from outside the box. everything that you do takes you a step closer to your ever impending  death, its not my decision or care, nor anyone else's, if you feel like skipping, running, walking, or sprinting towars the clearing at the end of the path.

as for the part about smokers being rude, smoking has nothing to do with being rude. it depends on the person, as our friend screams has said to us. if your angry that people light up near you, point the finger at them, not the smokes.

yes yes, there are many downsides to smoking, mostly because smoking in the last century or two has been tainted by all of the processing of the tobacco plant. start putting rat poison that tastes good in cereal and i gaurantee it will turn into the next bad trend that people are hissed for (not an entirely good analogy, but you get the point).

and as for the "less stressfull life" option, id like to see ANY of you try. this is a very twisted world we live in where very bad things happen every day. if someone finds that burning and inhaling something makes it easier to get through the day, id go ahead and let them do it. dont try and preach to anyone about how to live thier life (unless you deeply care for them, i guess), because it isnt yours. relate telling someone not to smoke with a preacher who shoves his religion in your face.

and saving your money? that RARELY happens, you need to go buy a change jar for that, and not many people have the conviction to let a pile of money sit in thier room when they have things they can buy. i mean, just look at the smokers we are talking about for instance! they usually dont even consider or care about the long run of smoking! they know its gonna hurt later, but they figure "what the hell! i might even be dead by then!" because many people live in the moment. the money that isnt used to buy smokes generally finds its way back into a bank somewhere whether it be through a candy bar, a pizza, cell phone, whatever.

oh yah, the physical transformations are noticeable, but just because you smoke doesnt mean that you are slovenly, nor ignorant. most people who smoke realize that the smell will stick to them, as with any substance. with that said, i believe that most smokers have the insight to maybe buy some gum to cover thier breathe or they simply have friends who dont mind that they do it or care that they smell like smoke.

Read the essay by Joan Didion "On Self Respect." if you truly respect yourself, you shouldnt care what others think of you. you see, smokers smoke for themselves, they generally dont smoke to look or act cool, or something like that. as it has been proven, tobacco is a stress reliever.



just let people smoke, it is so trivial to even debate this topic. it is no worse than any other hobby that you could damage yourself while doing it. if you want to debate smoking, go ahead and debate skydiving or racing while you are at it.


personally, i do not smoke, not because i find it immoral or wrong, but because im not so fond inhaling smoke, the same way some people arent so fond of sitting on a computer all day and playing games or posting on forums '-' ("look at the long run! you'll get out of shape if your on the computer so much!"  ::))

I must comment this as it is amongst the most stupid things I have seen.
This has nothing to do with the topic, it's is not nice, not appropriate this this kind of board and his sentance is closer to be correct English than yours. You are not an ace in English yourself so just keep that kind of comments to yourself. Notice now that I am not commenting any of the mistakes you have made and that no one else has.

* AnubisBlessing bites Screams in his knee

As for the topic. Most points have already been made, but I think the taxes on tobacco are mainly there to make it less attractive to smoke, and to make up for the costs that smokers make for the community.
Smokers do not only harm themselves but anyone around them and also the environment by leaving the stumps(filters or whatever) on the ground which I think is completely disgusting.
Cologne won't help shit if you smell like you've been doing nothing but smoking all your life. It's even worse to try to mask it in perfumes and stuff because the stench does go through. Depending on how much you smoke of course.
Smoking causes impotence, cancer and makes your skin age as read on the cigarretpackages, at least in Sweden..

I'm totally opposed to smoking, especially in crowded places and indoors which I find completely absurd.
I love the fact that smoking has been prohibited in resturants in Sweden. YES!

And Bart: Isn't Snus illegal outside of Sweden?
I think I heard it somewhere but I might be completely wrong.

I don't smoke I got heart problems.

After thats said and done. Smoking in my opinion can be taken bad or good. I mean look on the perspective of the owner who get all the money from smoking. Now look at the guy who is hopelessly addicted, but the man who is addicted had his choice on the first puff. Should I say its bad and give him pity, or should I be mad at the man who supplies the ciggiretes. Im just saying that smoking isn't good or bad. I mean people who smoke don't complain about it. The people who acually say smoking is bad don't even smoke. Which I find pretty funny. Most people who you go up to and say smoking is bad will look at you and snuff. Ill just say that I can't place a opinion on smoking cause I don't take part in it.

Ah don't be so moral, it gets you no where economically. You have to be a jerk to succeed in modern day life. :-\

(Eg. SELL CIGARETTES!) Or like invent some new addictive drug and distribute free samples to young children old enough to carry money and you'll make trillions.

Once again, i'm having a bad day, ignore me.

I'd smoke a hundred joints of marijana before I touch 1 cigarette. There are thousands of chemicals in cigs, the worst of these including nicotine which is addictive. Marijana is a natural plant that has no added chemicals (without lacing) and is not addictive.

I just got done with 9th grade health, and I am almost certain that marijuana IS addictive. It is also actually more dangerous than cigarettes- the reason that it appears safe is that people don't go around smoking 40, 50, 60 joints a day.

switch to snus.

- cheaper
- no cancer
- more nicotine
- discrete

Smokeless tobacco is also bad for your health. 3 of your points are valid, but your second point-that is totally, completely, WRONG. Your chances of cancer are very high from smokeless tobacco. Plus, mouth cancer is a really nonhappy cancer. It spreads so darn fast you won't know what hit you. Smokeless tobacco also gives you that uber-secksie hairy tongue. Make everyone jealous when your tongue looks like this http://www.tobaccofacts.info/images/hairy_tongue_small.jpg :)

And for the people who say it doesn't hurt other people...It sure does. If you have kids, by the age of 5, they will have inhaled the equivalent of over 100 packs of cigarettes, even if you don't smoke in the same room as them. Smoking outside doesn't make the danger go away. Sidestream smoke contains higher levels of toxic stuff than smoke the smoker exhales. The South African Department of Health states, "A non-smoking office worker sharing a room with a smoker could inhale the equivalent of up to 5 cigarettes a day in smoke particles...". That would not make me happy. Furthermore, smoking costs every citizen in the United States an average of $272 a year in health care costs, and an average smoker will smoke around $1400 in cigs each year. I dunno about you, but I'd be happy to have 272 bucks every year. Multiply 272 by 300 million, and you get a figure somewhere around $72,000,000,000 every year. In the YMCA Youth Legislature, one of my bills is to ban smoking in Washington State(Where I live). I have several rock-solid arguments for it.

Now, I realize you don't live in the US, but those are just some nice statistics to think about when you light up. If you enjoy life now and want to enjoy it later, JUST DON'T SMOKE!

And to give you a little extra to think about, here are some common cigarette additives:

Ammonia-Arsenic-Benzine-Cadmium-Lead-Lead 210(A radioactive isotope)-Polonium 210(The stuff used to kill the Russian spy-you get 300-800 chest x rays worth of radiation from it a year if you smoke.)

One of my friends talked me about his grandfather. The oldboy is about 80 and smoking for 60 years.  He has lungcancer, but not thi is the point. Who didn't smoke around him already dead. It's little bit scary i think. They was all die in cancer. The cigarets gave some kind of protection to the grandpa. So before u light a cigaret, make sure you wanna die alone. I don't smoke cigaret, just sometimes weed. And I'm envy for those ppl who can do this freely. Weed in hungary is illegal  :(

So you mean that everyone who smokes will die alone? Bullshit :p I think there is a much better question.. Everyone know the risks of smoking but still people just want more and more.. Is the temptation so big that its worth risking a life? And weed is not a safer option than cigarets.

Geeez, people are smoking because they are addicted to nicotine or becaues their plain stupid.

People start smoking because they want to get more coolnesspoints or because their incredibly weakminded.
