what exactly are the benefits of smoking? Please clear that up for me, being a smoker who is in the midst of quitting, again, I'd really like to see
your list of benefits.
If it's merely an expression of your rights, I'm with you. I believe you have every right to stuff whatever you want into your body, as long as it
doesn't impact me.
Smoking does, second hand smoke, while being demonized well beyond it's capabilities, is bad, very very bad, and you don't have the right to shave
days of my life to express your freedom.
And maybe I'm going to different doctors.... Cause every doctor I've gone to has shamed me for any medical conditions within my control. When I
was overweight, I was told to get it under control, you don't have to be 500 pounds to end up with diabetes. A slight change in activity and diet
can have a huge impact on your health.
Just like smoking can have a huge detrimental impact on your life.
Don't get me wrong, I was the first to complain when they passed the no smoking bi-laws making all bars smoke free. I still think it should be up to
the bar owner. But I'm not going to sit here and pretend they are making tobacco seem worse than it is.
The very companies producing and selling the garbage have known, since the 50s, how dangerous it is.
