Tobacco made me dizzy and sick. Weed made me happy and laugh.
Got no idea why people smoke tobacco?
Dose suck how weed can give dry mouth and body stonned and paranoia though. But tobacco stinks so bad, its so discusting.
I go into a mates house that smokes inside, even if i pop in for five minutes when i leave i can smell it in my clothes.

So yeah i dont think smoking tobacco leads to smoking weed or doing drugs. I know some people like to mix weed and tobacco together though.
Most people that smoke weed do try other harder drugs latter in life but it dose not mean they get hooked and become junkies or anything.

I guess its like saying "is beer a gateway drug"? you start on beer then go to spirits.

Anything can be addicting to anyone, if they are constantly getting fluctuating rewards out of it, or just find it so very rewarding.
I think anything can be what it is to you if you want it to be.

- Okay now, that is thinking way to philosophically.

I think anything can be a gateway, if you decide you want something stronger.
However, on the fact is this thing exactly more of a stronger gateway than in comparison to something else.

I believe maybe so, I am not sure. Not to informed about cigarettes and it`s connection to the gateway theory.

Adrenaline is the gateway drug.

I smoked weed before I smoked tobacco. And I popped E's before I smoked weed (rebellious teenager + rave parties = the E-train). Kicked the tobacco, thankfully. But I don't think the incidents are related in regards to any of them being a gateway drug. I did all three of my own volition (the tobacco was for the extreme stress I was under at the time, stupid mistake, I wasn't thinking straight 99% of the time).

But not once have I ever woken up one day and said to myself, "Hmm, I should buy a hit of crack." Because crack is whack, yo.

The hardest I've ever gone is LSD, but I had the curiosity to try it since I was 13, before I did any of that. It might depend on the person, but no, I don't believe nicotine is necessarily a gateway drug in and of itself.

The day that a gram of crack goes for about as cheap as a pack of Tourneys at Speedway (about $4.50 with tax when I was still smoking) will be the day we know that the world will soon come to an end.

I always hear weed is the ultimate gateway drug but what about cigarettes? theyre easier to get. they don't get you very high but its the start of smoking something. every drug addict pretty much has tried cigarettes. what do you think?


Ever notice that nobody ever has just one "grownup" vice? Like, ever see a smoker who either didn't swear or drink?


Well, if you're counting swearing as a grownup vice, then I have exactly one. I don't smoke or drink or gamble or any of that.

I'm a hit at parties. I think people always stop inviting me because I'm so fun, they're afraid they'll get addicted to me too.

So, I guess, props to them for kicking the habit, right?

Really? Weed was always easier to get for me also the whole "gateway drug" thing is all bs. no one is gonna jump from pot to heroin unless they already have issues.

If anything is a gateway to hardcore drugs it would be either alcohol or prescription drugs

The problem with this subject, is people who try to argue it's a gateway drug are usually those who have never smoked it.
I used to smoke it all the time yet never had any interest in anything beyond it.

The only time Iv ever seen people go beyond it is if they had a terrible living situation. Usually a mother/brother passing or constant domestic disputes at home and ect. But those same kind of situations lead to alcoholism so whatever argue people make weed is a gateway drug immediately becomes moot.
