Thank God i haven't tried it yet. It seems that it is true that once you start you can't stop for these things. That kinda blows if you accidentally fail to peer pressure.

i have seen such things ruin far to many lives to even be curious about it. even from a very young age i grew to resent the use of drugs from watching my own ani-chan use it.
1- smells rancid
2- addiction
3- lack of logic
4- expensive
i know my obsession of manga isnt cheep either but its clean.

personally i intend to live as long as i can in the best of health. that way when i am old i wont be fragil in the least. see me in 80 years hiking mt. kataden and venturing through caves!

Cigarettes are linked to many forms of cancer, the most commonly mentioned is lung cancer. Cigarettes are also linked to birth defects, heart problems, and pretty much anything that has to do with the circulatory system. Cigarettes are highly addictive, which is one of the main points against the use of cigarettes. It makes it very difficult for long-time users to stop smoking which gives the user a better chance of being diagnosed with cancer, etc.

"Approximately 5.5 trillion cigarettes are produced globally each year by the tobacco industry, smoked by over 1.1 billion people, which is more than 1/6 of the world's total population." - Wikipedia

The other problem with cigarettes is second-hand smoke (inhaling the smoke from a user's cigarette). This is the reason why there are smoking laws being put up. Second-hand smoke can cause many diseases and disabilities. Read Wikipedia's article for better information on second-hand smoking's effects. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secondhand_smoke) The effects are commonly criticized are lung cancer, birth defects, etc but second-hand smoking also causes headaches and other minor effects.

Random Info: You get a different "taste" for a cigarette by the blend of the tobacco in the cigarette.

Marijuana is not bad for you. Moving on.

Random Info: There are some really cool-looking pipes out there.

LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) is a hallucinogen and its effects are unstable, part of the reason why it's a 'dangerous' drug. LSD is effective in small doses so any moron that gets a hold of LSD and doesn't know what s/he's doing is going to do something moronic and overdose on it. Read about the effects of LSD here (includes chemically, physically, and psychologically): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lsd#Effects

Random Info: LSD deaths haven't been well-documented.
===

The problem with cocaine, as with LSD, is that stupid users and/or addicted users overdose. Overdosing on cocaine causes an increase in blood pressure, which can be lethal. "It is associated with a lifetime risk of heart attack that is seven times that of non-users." - Wikipedia

Short-term effects include increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, increased temperature, decreased appetite (people like to abuse cocaine if they think they're fat), and some others I can't think of
Long term effects include addiction (one of the main arguments used against cocaine), paranoia, mood changes, restlessness, and some others I can't think of

Random Info: Crack is a form of cocaine. I've noticed that some people seem to think that crack is just slang for cocaine.

The argument "it kills" is the most worthless argument...I ever hear. ANYTHING can kill you in excessive amounts; the problems with drugs are their side effects and the fact that users become addicted and reach the lethal dose of the drug.


God Red you just stole what I was about to say

I don't mind smoking to socialise i.e. people who smoke when they're on a night out.
As long as people who smoke don't start blowing it in my face I'm fine with it. It's hypocritical for me to criticise people who smoke anyway.

why do you think people smoke and do drugs? what was it in there upbringing that made them think it was okay or to alow themselves to befriend people that would but then in a position to do drugs? weither it is legal or not means nothing to a teen that feens onmipotent. i was brought up by the same parents yet my older brother does drugs. its hard to talk to him about it b/c he does not want me to smoke cigs but he things (and i quote) "you should do it for your art. it'll be a good experience for you"
-gag. at least he has the curtacy to not smoke around me. oh an i am also his warning when he comes home. i tell him he smells and he goes and showers so ma and pa never know. god i hate being his keeper. all this information about his life i dont want to know.

I stopped smoking near one week and it really work!!..It was too expensive for me so I quit. But if you are against smoke or drugs than you have to be against alcohol too because if you complain it with drugs, it has near the same affect... (smoking has no affects ok.. it only smells like sh*** :P) And alcohol is dangerous too and you can get addicted to it very fast... And there are healthfully drugs, e.g. cannabis.. yes, it is good for asthma.. but in moderation... ^^
I had a friend who got addicted to drugs ( like lsd... these fucking chemical drugs) and was near to take "H" ... but she could handle it and stopped it... If she had go on she wouldn't live anymore...
