In Reply to: RE: Lung cancer in smokers vs non smokers, all breathing the same air posted by Tweaker456 on April 11, 2017 at 09:19:11
The stink of cigarette is appalling.
Put me in a small room with a smoker and I would just plain knock them out immediately.
Aside from smoking back in the 60's, (due to friends who smoked) I also went to dance bars. Where the smoke was a really thick blanket. and clothing stank from being there.
I am really glad cigarettes cost a small fortune now.
And for all the laws about where one can smoke.
Where I worked.. up until the mid 80's the break rooms were a stink pot of cigarettes. Then soon all that changed, until no smoking anywhere inside the building. Which may have saved a few lungs of both smokers and non smokers alike. I have to admit smokers were usually friendlier than non smokers, and 'joining' them smoking made it easy to be accepted
Cigarette smoking is a addiction, just like any addiction. It does nothing for you except befuddle the brain into thinking all is better with a cigarette in hand than not.
I for one do not care about 'statistics' as much as I care about not having to smell that shit anywhere around me.
I also can remember the sudden sense of 'relaxation' from lighting up. But then that is just the addiction response to the lack of nicotine. A 'fools' paradise.
Yes, break rooms all used to stink like high hell from cigarettes.
Now they all seem to stink from the burned coffee made by those horrible POS "Mr. Coffee" machines.
Which is worse?
I'm with you, except that I never smoked. I grew up with my mother smoking unfiltered Pall Malls, and I never got used to the stench, which I describe as burning sweat socks.
I tried dating a smoker a few years ago, thinking "How bad can it be?". I found out how bad. She was a sweet woman in many ways, but the smoking was something I couldn't get past.
