I haven't, but I hate the holier-than-thou attitude that non-smokers often have towards smokers.

It depends on who you talk to. Personally, I'd take up any other substance as a habit before tobacco.

Really? You'd rather take up say, ice or heroin? Just a wild guess but i'd say it might have a few more negative consequences than the occasional cigarette

Yes, I would rather take up ice or heroin. I assume by "ice" you mean meth. Believe it or not, heroin doesn't really have many negative side-effects at all. The negative side-effects come from whatever shit dealers decide to cut it with. I have some chemistry knowledge and know how to separate at least some of the additives from the diacetlymorphine itself, and I have the will-power to not become addicted. And it's funny you say "occasional cigarette", because nicotine has been proven to be more addictive than heroin or meth. It's also a fact that methamphetamine is prescribed as a medication for ADD and obesity in the U.S., and it's side-effects don't seem too bad at all. The biggest harm when it comes to illegal drugs comes from impurity and irresponsible use. Tobacco, on the other hand, isn't cut with harmful chemicals that the user doesn't know about, and is extraordinarily harmful to every system in the body.

Yes, by ice i mean crystal meth. I live in australia and ice is a hugely popular here.
The other day i saw a women wailing and yelling and throwing herself against a fence on the street because she was in withdrawal from it. But you know what since you have some will-power i'm sure that could never happen to you.

My family has a HUGE history of alcoholism, so I know better than most to keep myself in check. Many of my philosophies about life revolve around personal responsibility. Addiction or withdrawals are not a sufficient reason in my mind to continue doing something harmful, and since I would be the only thing making myself do anything, I would stop.

And of course, people who smoke tobacco never had anything bad happen to them, eh?

How are killing the innocent or raping babies bad ideas from a not-moral standpoint? Tobacco is unhealthier than any drug. Killing yourself and smoking tobacco are the same, basically.

You might want to check yours. Tobacco is the number one cause of death in the United States, coming in at over 400,000 deaths per year.

All illegal drugs combined kill under 13,000 people per year. Most of those deaths are from overdose or poly-drug use.

Before you try to say that it's because more people smoke, that can't be it. 43% of people in the U.S. use illegal drugs. Around 70% use tobacco products. That's quite the jump, but not nearly enough to warrant a jump of almost 35 times as many deaths.

That was just a quick search and from memory, so my information my not be too accurate, but it's definitely a good reference. Perhaps you should look stuff up before calling me out?

Well no shit it's the number one killer of adults in the US...that's because more people smoke cigarettes(a LOT more) than people do Heroin, or Meth, or Cocaine. so to compare strictly numbers and not give the percentage comparision of smokers->smoking deaths and heroin users->heroin deaths is wrong.

You kind of need to take into account that most likely a large portion of that 43% just use marijuana. And that doesn't really kill people. Most illegal drugs are much more dangerous in the short term and equally as dangerous in the long term.

If you're still not convinced. Total, worldwide use of illegal drugs is estimated to cause 250,000 deaths per year. That's just over half of the deaths caused by tobacco in the U.S. alone.

I don't think smoking is great (obviously). It's expensive, unhealthy, makes you smell like smoke constantly, and it doesn't really make you feel good unless you ARE addicted. However, I don't think it's the worst bloody thing in the world like people make it out to be.

I have smoked a cigar for my roommates 18th birthday. It was disgusting and I never plan on smoking again. I agree with daniel_james that the "holier than thou" attitude is wrong.

One time, when I was 3 and living in Russia, I was waddling around my house and I saw a lit cigarette. I had seen my dad smoking a few times, so I mimicked his inhaling and blowing out the smoke. It tasted like cow dung and It was absolutely disgusting. To this day, I've not touched or even thought about smoking, and I won't anytime soon. And as to the above comments, no I don't act like a "holy" person to smokers. I have many friends who are smokers; I don't judge someone if they're a smoker or do other types of drugs, if they're an all in all good person, with good morals, that's all that matters. What I'm tryin to say is people have their personal reasons why they do something, and they shouldn't be judged by it as long as they're not hurting anyone around them or something along those lines. :)

The idea of smoking seriously grosses me out. I'm not the healthiest person around, but after knowing negative effects of smoking, I just don't think it's worth it. I try not to judge people for it, but I must admit I find it quite silly someone would take up smoking after knowing the health risks. Of course, for those who are addicted, I completely symphathise.
