All life is a risk, but sometimes we over emphasize said risks.I don't bash smoking, I simply understand the risk and wish every other smoker did. I am a smoker, not a hobbyist as some like to label themselves. But, there is nothing efficacious about smoking. It's simply a choice everyone here has made. Many here, however, refuse to acknowledge, indeed go through all sorts of contortions to put a "healthy" face on a selfish choice, the fact that they are imperiling their health. Many here though do, readily acknowledge their wee vice as being inherently unhealthy.
Smoking is a choice best left to those who understand what they are doing to their body, accept the inherent risk without grasping at whatever "pop science of the moment" offers.
Guess I just ain't looking for ways that hard.Thousands, around the world, select their method of dying every day. Guns, gas, pills, dope, razor blades, automobiles, bath tubs and electricity, hanging, tall buildings, bridges, the oceans, airplanes, railroad trains, lye, suicide by cop, the choices are almost endless.
Carbs suck, but donuts are unstoppably delicious! It's these bitter ironies that make life funny and bearable.Haha yea I've seen it. Hell, I'm sure I've been a part of it.
It's like watching members of a donut lovers forum complain about carbohydrates, though.
In what manner? I admit smoking is unhealthy. But, I smoke, I made a decision to take the risk. I'll also eat a couple of hot dogs now and then. Certainly not helpful for my weakened heart. I'll also chip ice and shovel snow. Risk v reward at work. The difference between simply living life and enjoying life. But, as this site is dedicated to smoking it obviously follows, smoking would be the most discussed of the wee vices available to us.hypocrisy
