    I know it makes them stink like shit. It doesn't go away for a long time either. I have taken numorous used things back to GC or a pawn shop because of smoke stench.

    that's kinda gross... stale smoke smells even worse than the initial smoke.
    does it damage them in any way?

    Smoke can stain stuff nasty yellowishbrownpukeshit. Mechanical damage? I doubt it.

    I've been smoking on and off since I was 14, these days I only ever smoke when I am very stressed and there is a cigarette at immediate convenience, never happens when one is without the other.

    I don't know if this was already discussed in the first 14 pages, but I'm curious...

    Given the cost (in terms of both money and known health issues, not to mention the potential harm it does to those around you), Why do people even consider smoking?

    I often ask the same question. Older folks, who might've started smoking before it was realised how much damage it did, I can sort of understand, as they were addicted before they knew it, but those who begin now? With the amount of education about the dangers, not to mention the costs financially, why start?

    Holy shit! I didn't realize this was from 3 years ago! :eek:

    Also, as to those who were talking about the cost of a pack : there's a guy who comes into my work and buys no less than 3 packs of Marlboro's at a time! :eek: $7.80 with tax times 3 packs = $23.40! And he comes in about every 2 days so at least 4 times a week and now you're talking over $100!

    Maybe we should thank smokers?

    They'll be dead before they get to collect too much social security money. :lol:

    I don't get why anyone with half a brain - or a conscience, frankly - smokes. I feel much the same way about any narcotic, including booze - although, I do drink the occasional beer come weekend, but that's hardly the same thing as puffing away and inundating you and everyone you're around with carcinogenic substances every goddamn day of your life. Seriously, I fucking hate smoking, and I lose respect for anyone who does. Yes, I'm a bit militant about it :)

    i smoke, nothing wrong with it tbh, why do non smokers look down on us for smoking?

    alot of people i know dont smoke, they have a go at me for smoking, but then they go out drinking, i dont drink so its the same principle.

    Smoking isn't the same as drinking. It's illegal to drink in public. Nobody gets to take beer breaks on the job and come back drunk and stinking of alcohol. It's an entirely different type of substance.
