Anyone here ever smoked the lung rape plant?
I actually smoked a bit a couple of years ago, I had quit after a couple months of on and off smoking ciggys.
Once in a long while I enjoy a nice cigar though. But other than that it's just plain fucking disgusting, bad taste, bad smell. Makes you feel like shit too. Never going back to that.
I love cigars, and I smoke cigarettes.
John Player Blues, usually. No strong preference, though.
Nope, and the people that I knew that stopped always feel the need to kick themselves afterwards while feeling like inconsiderate faggots to those that were around them.
I was also one to never keep a dirty sink.
Oh, boo fucking hoo, a tiny puff of smoke of second hand smoke, so little you wouldn't even have noticed had you not been staring daggers into every fag in sight like a hyper-moralizing prick, has got into your lungs. Yes, I'm sure that'll be the thing to kill you, that tiny bit of fuck-all nothing. Unless you're spending your life in closed, airtight spaces surrounded by smokers, you'll be fine, be more worried about the radiation you get from air travel, or you know, something actually important like the fat and sugar in food nowadays.
Smoking around kids in enclosed spaces, is a scumbag thing to do, I'll give you that. That I'll allow.
At least blow the smoke out a window or something.
Honestly, I don't think parents should smoke at all, but yeah, definitely avoid forcing your kids to.
I remember my dad used to smoke in the car, but he made sure all of it got out the window. Never smelled any of it.
While its not generally the best practice, there's still ways of doing it if you know what you're doing.
Eh, smoking is unhealthy and parents have a responsibility to do not life-threatening things to ensure they can take care of their children.
While I maintain my previous point, you are right though.
He had actually quit for several years, and then picked it back up again when his mom passed.
That's all a story for another time though.
Sorry to hear.
I don't smoke but I like to breathe it in secondhand sometimes. It relaxes me.
I vape like the gay boi that I am, but that's it.
Every time you take a hit of the vape you need to say "no homo"
I usually say "gimme your dick" in a really deep voice instead.
Lol my friend used to vape and sometimes I'd take a puff just so I could say "come on man" and "give me your soul" mad deep.
Lmao yeah, shit's fun.
I'm here. And I just finished my doctorate. My research was actually on electronic cigarettes.
Thanks! That was extremely tiring. I am glad to be finished before my senescence fully kicks in.
Alright, I'll bite, what does mental health have to do with researching electronic cigarettes?
I've been smoking cigarettes for three years now. I love cigarettes. It calms me when my nerves are shot and they taste fantastic after you just had a meal or you were stuck in a god awful line for thirty minutes. It usually throws me around cool people (other smokers who also have to leave the room).
Of course, I've noticed the negative repercussions of it. My throat gets clogged with phlegm which I can hack up on demand. Running for longer periods of times now physically hurts my lungs and causes me to stop; same thing with swimming and all exercise, really. The smell lingers, but that's easily fixable with cologne. And it's generally frowned upon in most social groups (unless everyone's smoking, then its frowned upon not to smoke).
I recently tried switching to vaping because its more socially acceptable. Unfortunately, it's more high maintenance but it gives me my nicotine fix. If something bad happens to it (coil burning, battery overheating, tank busting) then it costs more money to maintain a vape than it is to buy cigs & a lighter.
I don't know though, smoking in general is something I enjoy. I won't quit anytime soon, even if I stop cigs and switch exclusively to vaping. I enjoy it, but I don't smoke in non-smokers cars and force it down anybodies throats.
I'm 17 turning 18 in like five months.
If one of you guys are lucky enough to get the cancer that allows you to get that neat Soundwave like voice box, go around singing this song for the lulz.
Those are all good reasons. When I used to smoke it would cure my stress for maybe fifteen minutes, then I'd get a headache from not having nicotine and needing to smoke another cig just to get rid of it. Never going back to that shit.
Huh, this surprises me.
tobacco is gross but weed is pretty nifty
how is that edgy? i said nifty for christ's sake
With all respect, I never understood why people got into them. Most people I ask will say peer pressure, but is there any other reasons? I mean, they look nasty, smell disgusting, have multiple horrible health risks, etc.
Makes you look cool?
I haven't met anyone who thinks it looks cool, although I suppose it's probably with how kids think vaping makes you cool, but smoking is with older people, if that makes sense?
There was a huge initiative awhile back, it was called Healthy People. There was a 2001 agenda, and then a 2010 agenda. There's probably another one.
It was basically a way to deprogram everyone from thinking smoking was cool. It pretty much worked. Most of the research shows that teens no longer think smoking is cool, and there has been a record reduction in tobacco use.
People are starting to pick it up, again, though. There's actually a lot of misperception currently spreading about electronic cigarettes - most of the ads I see imply that young nonsmokers are flocking en masse to ecigs due to the fancy colors and flavoring. There is also a growing misperception that ecigs are as, or more deadly, than cigarettes.
It's quite enjoyable, calms you down, they taste nice and they're great for socializing.
Perhaps relaxes was a better choice.
Nicotine is demonized because of how addictive it is and because the main method of delivery is a deadly poisonous one. There are multiple beneficial effects of nicotine on the body, and one is anxiolytic in nature.
I think Madglee is older by a few months or maybe a year.
Though Berka may very well be older than both of us.
Yes, I am mortal. And have been around since about 2003. I've just been busy with aging out of my young adulthood into my senescence.
I don't smoke because if I'm going to get addicted to something, it sure as hell isn't going to to be to something as lame as nicotine.
Basically, the goal should be not to get addicted to everything. All of them creep up. Nicotine just grabs on like crack or the potent opiates/opioids. It alternates between 1-3 on level of most addictive substances known to man. Crack usually wins, suprisingly.
The white stuff is crack.
This is not to be rejoiced. His return only pushes him back to the top of the active list, and now I have to wait even longer for him to disappear and become inactive again so I can get my trophy.
I'm on the fast track to lung cancer, yeah. Usually I just roll my own but when I can afford it I prefer to get a pack of Marlboros. Only ever had one but I'd love to have cigars more often.
E: read through some of the thread, I don't like smoking in public and whenever I do I be sure I'm not around anybody, or at least not anybody who isn't smoking. I'll definitely never smoke around children. Also Madglee is back so that's cool
