Not me. I prefer to avoid as much known causes of cancer as possible. At least avoiding what I have control over.

I'm not a heavy smoker, but I smoke from time to time.

Why would you want to smoke? It's bad for your health, cost a lot of money (at least here it does) and it makes your clothes smell.

By the way, that illegal stuff is legal here . And no I've never done it. Nor will I.

I guess you're talking about the Netherlands. It is not officially legal (see English text) - but the police won't arrrest you if you have less than 5 grams with you.

Nope I don't smoke - tried it one or twice but never got the habbit! Just as well as in the UK smokers have a bad time of it - forced to smoke outside and taxed so much.

Well, that's how most get used to it. You try it once or twice, and you find yourself addicted to it. And yeah, I don't smoke.
You are fortunate enough not to get into this habit.

I'm an old reformed ex-nonsmoker. I think I got that right. I smoked for several years, gave up, fell back in, nearly drove myself insane giving up again and finally have a zero tolerance approach for myself.

I smoke. Unfortunately a lot. And i don't want to be evangelized, i know myself that it's wrong and that i should quit.
From january on i've a 6 months sabbatical and i'm planning to travel. Maybe a long distance flight is a good start to quit with the help of nicotine patches.

"i know myself that it's wrong" - I don't agree, unhealthy - yes, but not wrong! Of course I don't smoke....

Thanks Peter,
i meant something like not good (for me). I didn't know that the word wrong has such a strong meaning.

Not me, I don't smoke.

Although I do derive about half my income from the sale of cigarettes. So if you are buying your smokes from the customers of the company I work for, then carry on smoking!

Its a great drug, and smoking is a very effective drug delivery system. When I was a young engineer, working in a big room with 100 other engineers, at least half the folks smoked. Gave them something to do while waiting for the ink to dry on the drawings.....

These days, at least in the US, its socially unacceptable to smoke, but the buzz is impressive for something completely legal.

We don't make it illegal, close the factories, etc. because the US has tried prohibition of addictive drugs before, and it failed. Actually, we've tried prohibition of illegal drugs too and it has failed as well. There is a non-zero chance that in just a few weeks, California will end this stupid war on drugs, at least for some.

I did smoke for 10 years and gave up since 2005. Now I feel the difference in my health. It is good that I had quit smoking.

I had tried it once,and found it too heavy and addicted for me. So i had quit already that very first day.
IMHO,i have a sympathy for all smokers,
youngsters find smoking kewl,that really sucks.

For me sometimes YES and most of the times NO

Starts with a status smbol or just for style and ends with tragic story----(in most of the case) unless you hit by a car or you are in iraq war
