    I'm glad you made that distinction, too few people bother. Being run over by a car kills you. A heart attack kills you. Smoking never killed anyone but it has undoubtedly depleted the health and shortened the life of hundreds of millions and will continue to do so for as long as anyone's daft enough to ingest their drug of choice in such a lethal manner.

    Oh dear Spot, if only life were so easy, every smoker knows doing it is daft hun.

    Addiction is a problem period, just because smoking cigarette's is legal makes it no less an addiction than anything else, its handy that its legal, helps us justify it in a sense. The addiction is what we have to address, why are we addicted to smoking? We have to address the underlying cause.

    I already know why i smoke / drink / eat too much

    If you can`t quit smoking cigarettes why not try ganja. I know of people who does not smoke cigarettes but smoke ganja. The passive smokers get a high out of it.

I was able to find my way home appearing very drunk when my wife looked at me as having too many ice-cold San Miguel beer. I was rushed to the ER in the hospital where my son a nurse worked. An EKG was taken and it was confirmed I suffered from an acute inferior wall myocardial infarction. They gave me a streptokinase injection to dissolve the clot formed from the bleeding. I`m glad I am a doctor who saw the grim picture of what I was going through. I survive the attack. At present, I still smoke ( a green Marlboro stick).

Wherever I go death follows and yet it can not touch me unless he defeats or kills the one before me. If you saw the movie The Final Destination then perhaps you know what I mean. I can not be killed by death himself unless he kills first the one before me who also escaped death. I doubt he can do that to Balaramaji Christ Jesus.

    Mutualism is the way two organisms of different species biologically interact in a relationship in which each individual derives a fitness benefit (i.e., increased or improved reproductive output).
    Mutualism (biology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    By the way, "a green Marlboro stick", if I understand correctly, is a menthol cigarette of which
    Menthol cigarettes have also been shown to inhibit nicotine metabolism, causing "systemic enhancement in exposure to nicotine".
    means they're far more deadly than the fundamental context of the thread even...

    I do admire the old adage "if you're going to do something then do it right" though...

    I inherited the smoking gene from my great grandfather ( grandmother`s side) who died of old age ( 103 ). My grandfather ( mother`s side ) was also a smoker who died ( 90 ) due to cerebral thrombosis. My father stopped smoking ( 65 ) when he developed symptoms of COPD. He`s still alive at 82. My two sons don`t smoke after I found out from the neighbors they smoked when I wasn`t around. I said to them, " I`d rather let you smoke with me than hid it from me. " After that lecture, I let them each ate a stick of menthol cigarette. From there they vowed never to light a cigarette even if I insist they should light one in my presence.

    Thankfully I gave up cigs a long time ago but still miss it. I will never start again though.

    Love a little, sweet tipper cigar once-in-a-while thought but don't inhale.

    Re: Any smokers here?

    I smoked and quit using an electronic cigarette. My doctor suggested it after I had tried every other method. My electronic cigarette looks nothing like a cigarette, by the way. It is a box with a tip on it and a control for voltage. I can dial up the voltage to increase the volume of vapor produced in a puff. It is very easy to gradually reduce the nicotine level. My doctor had previously prescribed a nicotine inhaler, but without the vapor cloud and taste it didn't do the job for me.

    Smoking is a cultural tradition. The red Indians in America smoke. The Chinese smoke pot long before it was introduced in America. The Hindus smoke. The Turkish smoke. So, if you were a smoker, I am glad you did not quit. For better for worse.
