don't waste your money man. Shamu has all the workers pissed off with her recent salary upgrade request. Dude you'll be paying out the blowhole not to mention flipper has a monopoly with the dolphins-no one is getting rich but the big fat whale and that ******* dolphin.

Amen!

with you all the way elijah.
when are kids gonna wake up and realize that by saying yes to that little bit of peer pressure to try it will probably eventually kill them, reduce their income, make them smelly anti-social beings, and line the governments pockets with the tax paid on each packet.

a percentage of smokers have given into peer pressure thinking that if they smoke they will all of a sudden become cool and feel wanted. On the long run when the addiction is much to great, they come to realize that they probably should of not have chosen to smoke in the first place

well i guess everyone is different.
like my dad, he just smoke's cos he likes it and it makes him more calm.
or like other people, they smoke cos their angry, nerves or just like it.

i don't smoke and i don't want to. but everyone has a different meaning.

hope it helps.

later

When they first made cigars they put some kind of addicting drug to it. People know its bad for them, and know that it Will kill them, they sad thing is that its the addicting drug in the cigars, the company who made cigars put a drug in there, thats why its so addictive. People try to quit, take pills to stop, sometimes it works, most of the time it doesnt, the brain justs wants More and more.


Jason 13
I just cant help it, sometimes just got bored and tiring after work so i smoke.

I can't talk for all smokers but, in my case, I like the taste of tobacco smoke. I guess I was addicted somehow too but I really liked it.
I'm not smoking anymore. I haven't in years, I forgot how many.
But still today I remember the taste and I like it.

I'm aware is not good to my health and that's why I'm not doing it anymore. It tastes great but even if it tastes like heaven it's not worth my health.

i hate non smokers they just dont understand, if you dont smoke why does it bother you???

I will throw this one back at you. Do you drink things with cafeine in them? Once a day or more? More than a couple times a weeK? Do you have to have your jolt of coffee every morning? Do you crave chocolate, or ice cream, or anything with sugar in it? How about salt, do you just have to have some chips or popcorn? Could you give up all foods with process sugar, corn syrup or honey in them, without a backward glance, without missing them?
If you answered no to any of these, you are addicted. How could you have started? didn't you know these things are bad for you? they cause heart disease and diabetes, or add to them. they will kill you. And coffee stinks and tastes bad.
I said this to make you understand about addiction. Once addicted, to anything, it is difficult to stop, no matter how bad it is for you. And smokers started smoking the same way you started eating sugar and ice cream and caffeine, these were not given to you as a baby, you learned to eat them, and like them. Mom gave you your first ice cream cone and you were hooked.
And smokers have a really tough time, it is a ritual, they have certain times of the day they smoke, with certain activities. They miss the hand to ashtray to mouth ritual. It is a social event, or used to be, a gathering of people. Smokers started because nicotine speeds up the system, gives a person a jolt of energy. It used to be cool to smoke. Watch some old movies, everybody smoked. Desi, Lucy, and on and on.

A chain smoker friend had this answer when asked the same question.

"Smoking cigarettes don't make him feel alone even if he is all by himself for many days. Besides, if you don't smoke - you die just the same."


.
I was young & nieve to the facts of smoking when I started, I thought it made me look cool I have been trying to stop for the last 10 yrs..its an addiction that is hard to drop.

There are many reasons people first start smoking - usually it has something to do with social/peer pressure, and yes, I agree that's stupid, but then again people aren't very smart around the ages of 16-19. Why do people continue smoking? ADDICTION! And while we know it's stinky, and gross, and bad for our health the addiction causes us to rationalize that it helps settle our nerves or helps to deal with stress. Yes, we should all quit, but we need to in our own time, without random people nagging us about it.

My question for you... Why is it that nearly every fascist non-smoker is totally comfortable walking up to a smoker and telling them that it's going to kill them and that their habit is nasty? Do you also walk up to obese people eating McDonalds to let them know that they're disgusting human beings and are killing themselves? I didn't think so.

most of my friends smoke but i am a ex smoker, its there choice to smoke and mine not to, i cant tell other people what choices to make

Firstly, Gem, ladysaramay and susie x congratulations and well done for stopping. i wish you all the luck in the world.

Second, mr Preacher man, get off your high horse. Smoking is an addiction, an illness sponsored by the state. it brings in 12billion a year in taxes and only costs the NHS 4 billion in smoking related illnesses.

A lot of people smoke initially from peer pressure, or the stupid idea that its cool, and while the first cigarette ever is disgusting after a while the nicotine overcomes the idea that its gross, and tricks your body into thinking it needs it. It is widely accepted to be THE most addictive drug in the world far surpassing Heroin.

Smokers deserve your pity not your scorn. we know it smells, we know its harmful to our health, we know it can kill us so thanks for the update of useless information that we are already WELL aware of.

I have stopped smoking twice, and as I tell people it was the 2nd easiest thing I have ever done, with the 1st being starting again. Once a smoker always a smoker, just like alcoholics.

So in answer to your question we smoke because we are smokers and we are addicted to it.

Spoken by a person who has no idea what it is like to be addicted to something. I won't bother to explain it to you, because you won't get it. It is an addiction. Same as alcohol, chocolate, drugs, etc..... You eat at McDonalds? yep, that'll kill you too. Do you drink alcohol? Yep, that will kill you too.

Because of stress when in the royal navy got me started. Hard to give up now i am addicted!!


Mr. Boombastic Mungbean
Why does it bother you so much? I guess we all have our addictions. Some drink, some smoke, some eat lots of chocolate. etc etc. Yes smoking is bad for you, the way things are going, we won't be able to smoke in our own houses. You should really be asking why drink? Drink has a bigger impact on society than smoking ever has.


susie x ♥♥♥
Its an addiction, just like any other. I have at last given up smoking, Its hard but I am getting there, the last 2 months have been really difficult. Try and be a little sympathetic with people, we are only human after all!
