    Smokers Vs. Non-smokers: Why Smokers Are So Much Better To Hang With

    If you are a un-apologetic happily addicted smoker who started as a kid or a teen, you know. When it comes to feeling good, smokers are far more likely to put experiencing pleasure as a very high priority in their way of living life.  We were fortunate, or more accurately, more...

    Truth Be Told

    As a smoker, it's definitely easier to be around other smokers. There's an instant bond to be shared when you meet another smoker, and there is something inherently social about it. Sure there are some non-smokers that are cool about smoking, but as a respectful person I always...

    Smoking Is Bad For Your Health?

    OK, don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with non-smokers. And I do have friends that are non-smokers. And I would eventually like to become a non-smoker myself (although not right now, for sure!) I just seem to connect to people with certain traits. Smokers, you know what...

    My Ideal Situation

    My dream is to live in a house full of smokers who all freely smoke inside the house. I want to be the only non smoker in the house. I want to smell the wonderful smell of fresh cigarette smoke. I would like it to even travel into my bedroom. I don't want to be able to escape it...

    Rebel

    With the overwhelming scientific evidence proving that tobacco will kill you if you do enough of it hoards of people are shunning smoking. I however look at it a bit differently. A person who knows all this and then chooses to smoke is saying a lot about themselves and may not...
