~You mean you enjoy it? Well, maybe it will take a while for me to enjoy drinking and smoking because right now I hate smoking and my tolerance for alcohol is not that good...

Hmm. Well, off topic, a lot of smokers are ignorant. Despite knowing quite well they can give secondhand smoke, they BLOW IT IN CHILDREN'S FACES. Even if they politely cough.

~Hahahahahaa, that's very true. Well, not only the children, but anyone who's near to them. They don't give a damn as to who could inhale the secondhand smoke. They just blow it off of their mouths and noses.

Yeah. Smoking does take some getting used to. Keep to menthol cigs at first. Drinking has the same motto as Nike: "Just do it" Just take it lighter when you're starting out, and once your liver has some battle scars,(hopefully unlike your toilet) alcohol will be a lot more enjoyable, especially since you'll have access to different levels of drunkenness once you have a tolerance

There's a lot of reasons outside of peer pressure and trying to look cool. It's not always stupidity, even. I really think that if you've never been involved with smoking, gambling, or drinking, then you don't know what it's like and you shouldn't be pointing fingers. I don't mean it in a rude way, but it's kind of like guys having strong opinions on pro-choice/anti-choice, y'know? You just don't know; you haven't been down that road.

I won't argue that peer pressure and addiction are big reasons, but there's a lot more. Some people use vices like these as ways of getting rid of stress and escaping from reality; to soothe themselves.

Your cigarettes can't put you down, your alcohol can't judge you, your cold hard cash can't break your heart and your drugs can't leave you. They can't hurt you the same way people can. People befriend vices. I know that probably sounds pathetic, but it's not. It's just heartbreaking when you see it happen.

It can be to cope with losing someone or being hurt. I've known people who turn to getting absolutely hammered because of shit that happens to them. They're the most tragic people I've ever met, too.

Sometimes, being in the hospital because of lung cancer seems a lot less terrifying then some of the things people have to wake up to every day of their lives. I think this would be especially common in high school, because kids are monsters.

It's really more complicated than "people are stupid" or "they think it looks cool". I'm sorry for the wall of text, but this is a subject really close to my heart.

It srsly annoys me. I hate the smell.

Whenever I pass one of them, I call loudly to my friend/sister (I never walk out alone) "IGNORANT PEOPLE ARE IGNORANT. AND PEOPLE WHO SMOKE SUCK." :3
