Here's a thought... how about you should quit smoking if you have kids... Did you ever think of that, or is your extremely unhealthy habit MORE
important than your kids???
As with 99% of the posts in this thread, LOGIC FAIL! Thanks for playing, now move along...
First off, I never said that I was a smoker. Secondly, Do you drink? There are tests that show that drinking has the same effects on people as
Heroin. So, that would mean that drinking falls in the same field, right? Or would you be one to say "apples and oranges" here? I've seen people
live many a year smoking, and Ive seen people who have never touched a cig die an early age of cancer. Did you also know that there are widely
conflicting information about 2nd and 3rd hand smoke? There are people on both sides of the fence about smoking. One side even goes as far as to say
and show in their own studies that smoking doesnt have the effect that we are led to believe.
Now, If I do something unhealthy, like drinking, or smoking (funny how it is said that smoking helps deter eltimers, and drinking helps your heart,
yet it is also said that both can kill you, directly and indirectly), I dont think I would sit down and tell my kids to pop one open or light one up
with me. So, sir, your logic isnt logic at all. I take it your of a younger generation... It's ok. Not everyone actually digs into the subject
that they comment on, leaving that as only an opinion. So, your logic, mate, is only an opinion at this point since there are conflicting information
on both sides of this subject.
I will say this. I have been a smoker for many a year and the whole while, I exercise, work out and lift things that many people can not do, even as
NONsmokers. There is a balance. Too much of anything can kill you. I found that the years that I did smoke, the only thing that really affected me
was a slight shortness of breath, and yet, taking phisicles every year, I'm still able to blow in a tube and hold that output of air for 6 seconds,
better than most, ive been told... So, who is wrong here? Surely after smoking for better than half of my life, a pack + a day mind you, I should
have some serious lung issues at this point. Sure, my endurance went down some, but hey, the same thing happens to couch potatoes. When I got more
physicle again, my endurance went back up.
Look bud, most of my whole family smoked most if not the vast majority of their lives. That's 7+ aunts and uncles on either side of the family. All
of them are still alive and OLD. Sure, some have health problems, but they arnt smoking related. Most of it's due to bad backs from working their
butts off all their lives.
Sorry mate, you really need to get a clue and stop drinking the coolaid.
