    Smoking? ... Hm.

    My sister is a huge smoker. She has at least two packs a day. She started when she was 16.. And I don't know why they gave it to her, because here you are supposed to be 19 to buy. And her health card directly said; '16'. This is probably why I found another girl's OCC card in...

    I Hate Smoking, but do it anyhow

    I smoke. I am a secret smoker. Never smoke in public. It smells just bad.  I can feel a negative effect of smoking on my body, but it is so difficult to stop when it is attached to emotions. Every time I need time out, I smoke. If I feel sad, I smoke. If I worry, I smoke. It is...

    Why? That needs to stop.

    My father smokes a lot. From what I know so far, he is killing himself one cigarette at a time. *sadistic face* That's the same with other people who smoke. Here are the negative effects. Smoking can cause one of the 30 diseases, including lung cancer, blindness, yellow teeth...

    I can not conquer this addiction

    and it's ticking me off. I often deliberately make sure I have no cigarettes and because I live outside of town, it is very inconvenient to go buy more. It never works and eventually I break down and make a special trip to the store. I have tried smokeless, it is not the...

    Sad To Watch

    I Call It The " Cancer Stick" Or " Death Stick."

    I know this is a fairly obvious way to put it, but whenever I think of cigarette smoke, I always comment by saying "I smell death in the air." I absolutely hate the smell of it! To me, breathing in that crap is like sucking off the end of a exhaust pipe on a car because that's...

    You CHOOSE to smoke. I cannot choose to STOP BREATHING. I hate smoking/smokers. Every time you smoke you are inflicting your habit on others, and it is unfair. Even if you are in a forest with no one else around, you are still polluting the environment we all live in and are...

    I Live With A Smoker

    I hate how the smoke gets on everything; it stinks. I hate walking into a house that smells like smoke because it just seems like the house isn't clean.  I hate breathing the smoke in and it sometimes doesn't help if I leave the room.
