It's a simple question, call it curiosity if you want. I'm not interested in moral or immoral, healthy or unhealthy, recommended or unrecommended, or other similar bul$hit... We all know that earth turns around the sun an smoking is bad. So to smoke or not to smoke? and why? excluding the stuff above, and reasons like "It's causing cancer". Pleasure? Relaxation? Bad taste? Dizziness?

I tried to smoke years. For a reason that I can't mention lol I Never tried again and I'm happy for that because... Hey Dan, relax a little, you are making it hard for me to answer your discussion. What is the real question? Smoke or not to smoke and the answer is obvious to me but when I open the discussion, and I spend time reading it, you tell me not to mention the stuff... hmmm Okay. I really don't know what to answer if I don't mention the stuff above :-) Take care Dan and don't be hard on people who want to answer your question.

well... a more relaxed human being than me I don't think will ever exist... the target of the question is quite precise... but the answer is hard to get. Why? because people hide them selfs behind stupid motives where is nice and cosy... well I don't want that, so I tried to put out those idiotic motives;)

smoking - 
Smoking is dangerous to health
I asked my smoker friends why they smoke, all of them said it's because its very relaxing and it relieves stress. That's their reason why they smoke. They asked me why I don't, my reason is because I really hate the smell of it. So that's it, simple reasons why to smoke or not to smoke?

many people answer you.. not by a real answer but by a question. You know why? because they don't have an prepared answer... The smell really is nasty... Thank you:)

If regardless of all mentioned issues, I still don't know what's the reason of smoking. I do not really know the joy or pleasure of smoking, I guess I just don't enjoy it. Moreover, I do not like the smell of the smoke. So, regardless of the health issue, I'll still go for "Not to Smoke".

depends, if you are used to it then go on.... nobody cares it's your choice and your body right.I wanted to smoke but i can't stand the smell i really can't take it. i respect those women who smoke because i think it's their way to release their tensions.for them, it is a therapy i think????i don't know if my ideas are right.

Pleasure, relaxation...it's a great tool. Smoke too much, yeah, you'll get sick. Bad taste? Yeah, most people don't dig it. If you want to relax and get some pleasure from a smoke, heck, smoke cannabis.

:))... that's a good one... so cannabis is our salvation... pleasure and relaxation I can understand, especially with cannabis... but I think that the bad small applies also to cannabis... so I'm not ready for cannabis:))

Hello Dan!(",) I don't smoke. It's my personal choice and I would like to have a clean living with no vices can that threaten my health. I don't smoke because I would like to be a model of my own profession (nurse, which is to be a model of healthy lifestyle.(",) Have a great day!(",)

that's a good reason... I mean the model thing:)... but still, sometimes life IS about vices, addictions, things we aren't suppose to do... it's about breaking the rules:d... and, in some cases, living means also the bad things;) good luck:)
