I'm sure Stephen Hawking takes medication for his condition, but he certainly doesn't use recreational drugs.

I've never smoked in my life, and I plan not to. It doesn't allure me or whatsoever.

I'm far too intelligent for that.

Choosing to smoke has nothing to do with intelligence. Many of the world's greatest thinkers are or were smokers. Some of them were coke-heads, pot-heads, speed addicts, or straight up junkies. My understanding is that brilliance more often leads to drug abuse than not.

“Choosing to smoke has nothing to do with intelligence.”
That's what I said, you should have quit right there, since that’s the only rational sentence in your entire comment.


Sorry I did not mean to offend. You have a nice day now.

Look I'm 23 yrs old, I've been smokin a pack a day of the strongest and harshest menthols for 5 yrs. I spend about 200 a month just on smokes. My lungs r shot. I can't run a block without coughing up a lung. But I enjoy smokin I don't plan on quitting anytime soon. Right now I'm more just trying to stay away from real shit, like coke, x, crack, meth, pills, acid, and watever else tends to float my way. I've done everything there is out there, I spent years being unhappy with my life and nothing would fill the void. But my point is this kids, stay in school, don't smoke, don't do drugs, u can drink and smoke weed Idc bout that shit. But most of all try to be happy and if u don't like the situation ur in, CHANGE THAT SHIT only u can make u happy. Peace out I'm goin to bed!

I don't smoke. Tried it once and found it disgusting.

I would mind if my lover smoked. It's bad for her health and it's even wors for those who second hand it.

I used to smoke tobacco with a hookah sometimes with friends at home. I started that when I was 21 I guess, but by 22 I'd become bored with it and it didn't seem worth the health risks. Depending on the quality of the coal used it also sometimes gave me bad headaches. The instants are no good.

I smoke pot now because it is fun, and tastes and feels really good, but I'd rather eat or vaporize it since both are likely far safer. Cheaper, they are not, however.

I started when I was 25, when my girlfriend exposed me to it, and noted immediately that it felt pretty great and eliminated my insomnia almost entirely. The latter part had me hooked, but eventually a doctor got me on a beta blocker because I had high blood pressure for my age as well as suffocating panic attacks, and since then sleep has been a lot easier.

The risk of cancer and blood clots with some medications I take is on my mind pretty often, so I'd like to eventually only expose myself to it via healthier means when I can afford to. Financially speaking its just a really bad habit to have, but luckily it isn't very physically addictive. At the worst of it I was spending like $400+/mo on it and dipping well into my food budget to afford it. It was all I did and got very depressing. I will say it made Eureka 7 awesome, though =)

Your choice when you are an adult.

A "Pack-a-day" Smoker spends about 2000 $US a year. You could take quite a good vacation, afford a down payment on a car, or two months apartment rent.

Only when I'm out, and that's when friends offer me one. However I am not an addict and can live without smoking. Plus the cost is quite off putting if you think about it, I'd rather use it on my mortgage!

No and damn proud of it. In fact, I usually go out of my way to tell people they should quit. I got my dad to quit after 40 years of smoking. After he stopped, he found out that his body had come to rely on it so much that now he takes beta blockers and heart medicine due to complications from quiting. The doctors said if he had continued on over the course of 5-10 or so more years he would have heart disease so bad that there may have been nothing they could do for him. He's still alive and trucking though he now has a defibrillator and a pacemaker.

I think smoking is the grossest thing ever. In my eyes it make someone instantly unattractive, smoking is a MAJOR deal breaker for me

Peer pressure was never something that had an effect on me in the slightest when it came to this stuff. I'm very social, although I'm 22 and very rarely have a drink, and have never smoked a thing.

Weed? I get it. It's probably awesome for the most part. Why I don't do it? I don't want to spend the money on it, it's illegal where I live and getting caught is never worth it, it smells like shit, and I don't like the idea of me needing weed to have a good time. All my friends HAVE to smoke before doing anything. I find that ridiculous. Also, I don't like the idea of unnaturally changing my state of mind. However I guess I'm a bit ignorant of the whole thing since I've never tried it.

Cigarettes? I simply do not understand the concept of even picking up one and trying it. Absolutely nothing good comes from it, and the suffering I see very many people go through sickens me. Cigarettes are extremely dumb, and even the people who smoke them know they're dumb, yet they are some of the biggest selling points pretty much everywhere. That....literally.....blows my mind.
