  • Way Off-Topic Smoking...

    Hi all..

    Just thought I'll start a topic all to do with 'smoking', just to see what your thoughts are, what are your likes and dislikes regarding smoking?

    - I've only just recently started smoking. I can get annoyed very easily and stressed a lot of the time. Everytime I have a cigarette I feel so cool calm and collected, all the pain and stress is taken away from me. I would only say I've been smoking for about 3 month - and a lot of people can tell a real difference in the way I am. I don't want to smoke, but if I feel so great after one why not? & I could say now I'm addicted .

    I'm a sociable smoker - hardly ever smoke on my own.

    Do you smoke? do you feel it helps calm you down ect?

      Smoking will help anyone relax in the short term.
      But the huge increase in dopamine release is short-term, and as soon as dopamine receptors start to down regulate, your pretty much just left with the mild amount of nicotine addition.
      I was never addicted to cigarettes myself, i could stop and start at the drop of a hat..

      I no longer smoke myself though...

                I don't smoke, I advise against smoking.

                Try to quit. many cancers and tumors are caused and induced by smoking.

                  I used to smoke but it was really expensive and I always felt like crap. It also sucked trying to kiss girls when your mouth tasted and smelled like an ashtray.

                    It takes longer than 3 months to get addicted fully. At your age starting smoking is kinda retarded, theres more healthy ways to relieve stress.

                      Personally, I hate smoking (I only smoke a good cigar once a year, at New Year's). I don't agree with the fact people smoke to relieve stress; there's tons of other ways to do it without putting poisons into your body.

                      Pretty much all of my friends know I hate it, and if they do (there's only one or two that smoke), they never do it near me though they know it bugs the crap out of me that they do. Still, I know when they have since they smell horrible and it really bugs me, especially since sometimes it can rub off on to me.

                        This will be my only post in this thread, since last time my views made a lot of people throw a hissy fit -- but if smoking works for you, and helps you to relieve stress, keep doing it. That's my take anyway.

                        I'm out of this thread for good now before someone starts on me!!

                            I do not like smoking. I haven't dated a girl yet (relationship) that smoked.
                            I have no problem with people that smoke. Each to their own. But I don't want people to smoke in my house.
                            I have no problem with the bans on smoking either. I don't smoke and I don't want to smoke someone else their smoke either.
