Usually the signal I would look for was a positive response to suggestions of sitting on a face or going to frolic naked in an elevator.
Whether they smoked or not, it was never really a better sign than that.
Freaks have no shame. They need not too many signals.
I get that some people choose not to smoke but dont be so quick to judge based on a contemporary western view.
Native americans for example believe heavily in the use of tobacco in lifestyle. Chinese, Arabs....and so on.
It goes beyond a party favorite or a pastime.
For me personally it greatly aids in digestion. I am used to the relaxing feeling after meals and results in a faster and better digestion.
I guess I could meditate after meals but who the hell has time for that?
Some people smoke pot the way others smoke cigarettes. Same damage. Same retardation only its criminal mostly on top of it all. They would argue to
the end of the world about the benefits.
Here is the deal. Smoking is fine but like anything else should be done with sane moderation, tempered discipline and not to excess.
Its not dumb, or rather, No one is "Smarter" for looking down on smokers. You arent ahead in a race or something, just on a different path.
Chances are I am going to be the last person to die out of a great many people.....and I smoke like I was immortal.
My lungs arent even down in capacity. I compensate in other areas for my indulgence in this one aspect.
There is no set way to being healthy. Just a general guideline founded in common sense.
