    I've never smoked anything nor have I understood the appeal of smoking nicotine cigarettes especially. Nicotine in cigarettes just looks like a vasoconstrictor to me, except with more consequence.

    I'm not one of those pious "high horse" people and, quite frankly, I won't look down on anyone for smoking because I could care less what other people are doing to themselves, but I don't understand why anyone does it other than nicotine addition, habit, and for social reasons.

    I gave up smoking a few years ago and its the best thing I ever did. I am not sure though that scare tactics really help a smoker to quit - as a smoker when you read this stuff it makes you stressed and you feel like you want to smoke even more - even though that is illogical....

    Plenty of famous and non famous people have died from various forms of cancer or heart disease who have never smoked in their lives.

    Also plenty of smokers have lived to 90+ with no smoking related illnesses.

    I believe there is more to it than JUST smoking. We're all gonna die someday anyway.

    People smoke in social settings, the nicotine gets into their system consistently and they begin to look for the headrush more and more.

    Eventually, you don't feel anything at all while smoking. You're just going through the motions.

    I'm actually trying to quit right now - I never enjoyed smoking cigarettes by themselves, but I mix tobacco with my weed all of the time.

    I essentially get my nicotine through that, but trying to break the habit ASAP! I DON'T WANT HEART DISEASE!
