    Re: Smokers Being Looked Down On !!!

    First, tell us everything YOU KNOW about smoking, and then this could be a Debate.

    For now, this topic's just about whining about being discriminated against.

    It's not like smoking has no harm to it, so they DO have a reason to find it offensive.

    You know how to get rid of those hardships? Just stop smoking ... Not easy, but effective.
    You are now breathing manually. :P

    Thank you! I can't stand it when people complain about my smoking like I'm masturbating in public or something. "Do you really have to do that here?" Blargh! I can be outside at the bus stop and some douche will ask me to stop smoking near him. 1.) I'M OUTSIDE! 2.) I'M OUTSIDE!!! Move around!!

    Pretty much everywhere there is a smoking ban here in Winnipeg. The casinos, bars, restaurants, and now even cars if there are minors in the vehicle.

    I just want to ask, how many of you nay-sayers actually smoked or have smoked? If you've picked up a cigarette before and smoked for more than a year you can understand to some point. It didn't hit me that smoking was ruining my body until just a few years ago, and I've been smoking for almost seven years.

    I started as a kid, when I hung out with mostly boys. I thought it was cool and I felt rebellious and scandalous. But now that I'm older and thoroughly hooked I realize smoking was one of the biggest mistakes of my life. I've tried quitting and it hasn't worked, but I won't take any drugs or go on the patch like I've seen some of my other friends do, even though the drugs have worked.

    My one friend is a year and half clean but he used Zyban or something.

    All I want to know is why are people so judgmental and unsympathetic to smokers, I'm sure they've had some tough times dealing their own habits.
    You can't smoke in the casinos??? Aw, man! I go to casinos only because they're the only places outside of my own home that I can smoke indoors. That's gotta suck! I won't touch not being able to smoke in bars. We can't do it here and it really struck a nerve with me when they started that ban.

    Most people who look down on smokers have never even touched a cigarette and to them I say STFU. You can't criticize what you don't know or understand. My mom used to smoke. She looks down on my smoking, not because it bothers her in a sense that I'm a "dirty smoker", but because I used to tell her she should quit when I was little. "Smoking is bad for you mom!" The child in me would stab the adult in me if they ever met face to face, LOL.

    People who look down on smoking that have smoked before don't really look down on smokers. Just the act of smoking. I know several people who used to smoke and they don't look at smokers like we're scum of the earth. Hell, I actively smoke and I look down on the act of smoking sometimes. I've tried to quit a total of 13 times so far! O.o

    smoking is harmful but that does not give people the right to discriminate against smokers i'm sure i don't need to throw out some already know facts about smoking i just wanted to know the suffering of fellow smokers so get bent.

    Umm... no. Because you put it in a debate and discuss area, talking about personal hardships makes it either belong in the Cyber Lounge or the Journal Section. There's nothing to debate or discuss about what your original topic was about.
    It's not to insult you, it's to make your topic legitimate for the forum.

    Re: Smoking

    I hate the smell of cigarettes, cigars, pipes. etc. And, its digusting! How can people smoke that! And, it gives you cancer too! My parents quit like two years ago.. But, I still have the strange feeling that they do it behind my back.
