My Uncle served in Vietnam and smoked since he was 13.
He recently died of lung cancer which had metastasized to his liver. He was constantly in a state of poor health from his 40's all the way til his death bed.
He was a good man, but that was no way to live.
Please don't smoke, it doesn't make you look cool. Whenever I see someone smoking I think of some hipster faggot who lived in my dorm my freshman year who would always have a pack of American Spirits rolled under his sleeve and a single tucked behind his ear.
He'd never smoke, but he'd pantomime it as best he could and blast Animal Collective 24/7.
That is what I think of when I see a cigarette smoker.
I smoked for 4 years and quit 3 months ago. It's something you tell yourself looks cool, but in reality girls think it's gross. It seems enjoyable, but there is no net enjoyment because the pleasure is just taken from yourself in the future when you have to deal with withdrawal. It's a waste of money, it makes you smell, it makes people think you're stupid, you're worse off in job interviews, lowers productivity, kills you years later and makes you cough and feel sickly until then. Always clearing your throat. Reduces your ability to taste and smell. Makes your teeth yellow, face leathery, all skin worse, nails yellow, semen yellow, and fucks up pretty much every organ in your body somehow.
And you actually pay $100 a month to kill yourself because you don't just look like an idiot, you ARE an idiot.
>>9441187 I smoked from age of 14 to 23. >Why don't you smoke? >Smell on my Fingers >Smell on my Clothes >Smell everywhere >Very expensive. pack a day, sometimes 2. 6$X365=2much4me >Caused my teeth to be green (And I brush twice a day) Also, this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-WrWwUsKKN8 Dunno how much of this is real, but it did the job.
Because my ego is not defined by random reactions of pedestrians that I see everyday. My ego is defined by me and I don't need to romanticize consumerism, nicotine addiction and carcinogenic death sticks to get randoms to think im deep, tough, or 'intelligent'. The same traits that are displayed by a 'smoker' by the media/popular culture which ALSO is the same companies that get a kickback from tobacco corporations promoting an addictive substance.
>>9441187 >try it out for a week >smells like shit >smell gets everywhere >way too expensive in what universe is spending $6.50 on a pack of cigarettes okay the only thing you get from it is reduced appetite and adderall already does that for me
