I think that smoking is a real pleasure. It's exquisite while leaving unsatisfied.
I prefer the extravagant chase of sniffing powder. So regal. So genuine.
>Throw birthday party

FUCKING DISGUSTING ANIMALS.

Let me tell you how nicotine addiction work, first of all cigs themselves offer no uplifting or positive effects on their own, they work entirely through the mechanic of addiction and the pavlov effect, which is why the firsts cigs of smokers offer them no comfort at all because they aren't addicted yet.
After a few smokes, the addiction starts to settles in, not because the user enjoys the smoking in itself but because the lack of nicotine simply annoys and rends the smoker nervous, an effect which can only be lifted by further consumption of nicotine, if you've ever heard the joke of the clown and the hammer it's similar to that : a person encounters a clowning who's hitting himself with a hammer, the person asks "why are you hitting himself with a hammer ?", the clown responds "because it feels good when i stop doing it", that is effectively how nicotine addiction works. Smokers now benefits from the various advantages of anxiety and very minor nervous depression such as lack of appetite, higher productivity (http://www.hrzone.com/lead/strategy/sad-but-true-miserable-workers-are-more-productive) and lack of sleep.
After a while with the pavlov effect the smoker is now persuaded that nicotine is in fact a "feel good" substance similar to other drugs such as heroine or weed when in fact it should rather be described as a "i'll stop kicking you in the balls continuously for a while if you smoke me" substance.
The smoker enjoys his brief relief out of the stress caused by the addiction every time he smokes, because in this breif instant he simply returns into the normal non-smoker state he previously had.
You might wanna try some lotion for that butt pain friend ,otherwise it's going to hurt even more
I love tobacco and i'm quitting smoking. You don't know the grief it causes me the fact that in a month I won't enjoy my Lucky Strikes anymore. It's like losing your best friend, but I have to quit meanwhile i'm not completely fucked
Smoke weed and hash bu stay away from tobacco kids
I enjoyed smoking for the short time that I did it. Sitting outside in the morning and watching the sun rise and having a warm inhale of smoke was fun.
I don't wan't to die of cancer so I quit. Plus that shit is expensive.
Nothing wrong with smoking to be honest.
Just by living in a city and breathing the air, you're "smoking" a pack a year, if not more.
Plus we (smokers) spend ~5x more in taxes than we cost the healthcare system, and we die faster and sooner, so...less of a burden there.
People just get buttblasted about it because they don't smoke themselves and government propaganda shoved down their throats their whole lives tells them it's worse than kicking a kitten, even though things like drinking are arguably far worse, but generally accepted.
If they didn't get comfort from it in the start, why did they even start to begin with? Why did tobacco even become popular?
I intermittenty smoke and after 3-4 months of not smoking, I still feel a pretty good rush afterwards. It complements a glass of whiskey after a long day. I don't do it because I need it, which I genuinely don't. I had a cigarette about a week ago and feel no desire to finish the pack in my bedroom in any hurry. Only edgy faggots with weak-willpower get addicted to cigarettes.
Tl;dr I give you a C- for effort, do better research.
I miss smoking these in Russia. Expensive for Russian standards but they were great.
I know that feel. Also smoking at uni with friends is a nice, "groupy" feel.
Without them I can easily quit. Right now I'm only vaping but vaping doesn't feel as good because it's cold smoke. I know, ridiculous , right? And somehow vaping makes my throat really dry.
I remember reading an article about a gene that is present in some people that repairs damage done to DNA. AKA the people that smoked like chimneys but lived till they were 90.
Something about doing something with your hands and it almost feels like each cig is a project that you are completing. I'm too paranoid about vape juice cancer to vape, but I think things are prolly getting better now.
I don't smoke, never will.
But I feel that taxes on smokers and the way they're treated is too harsh.
Make it illegal or make it cheap and open.
But I'm also against licencing laws on alcohol, being forced to wear motorbike helmets and excessive gun limits, so I guess I'm a lolbertarian
Actually it is worse than losing your best friend. It's like a part of you has died. The thing is that before I smoked I used to be idle, when I started smoking I was doing something and thus being less "awkard" than just standing there or sitting there. It filled a void that didn't need to be filled at all, and it's why it's so hard to quit, specially for anxious people like me
>lived until 90
My grandfather. He's 70 and has smoked and drank every single day since 1962, still works carpentry, and remembers shooting gooks and what Baltimore was like before nignogs.
Cigarettes helped me when I was living abroad. Helped me fit in, act natural and meet people. To not have them in my life feels so weird, yet I know it's for the best.
>doesn't even have its own language
>pretends its dialect of Danish is a different language
glass houses lads
My Grandma (RIP) lived to 104, she certainly enjoyed her smokes and crappy chocolate.
Admittedly she smoked a lot less in her later years, and I think stopped entirely before she hit 100.
Ye, it helped me build my social life in uni. it will be indeed weird, but the past week I have been waking up with tingling all over my feet and hands and I suspect it's smoking related, though it has gotten better. I didn't even smoke that much since the year began and now I see myself abdicating a thing that actually helped me shape into what i'm now.
It is for the best brother, we will get used to it just like we got used to smoking.
>>doesn't even have its own language
That won't work, as it's also connected to my urging of having something in my hand producing movements rather than just standing with my arms idle
I might try cigars meanwhile i'm in the withdrawl process. having something in my hand has also became a vice
29 dollars? Fucking hell mate give up or go black market asap
>There are people who will never enjoy a cigarette and a bold black coffee in their back yard on an early atumn day
Feel sorry for you guys honestly
Non-smokers are just jealous that they don't get to take a bunch of extra breaks at work to be honest.
I'll bet any money that if your sissy lungs could handle the smoke you'd be smoking too.
Also, if it was just the lungs my friend, i'd be smoking right now.
Before you die of lung cancer you die of stroke, and you get your blood circulation completely fucked that can lead into limb amputation.
This is why i'm done with smoking, because something is not okay with my circulation, and I have fucking bronchitis(was born with it)
If only we only died of lung cancer...
No one over 18 starts smoking. It's a children's social game first. This said, if you are over 18, quit ffs
When I was 17-19 I had a maybe a half a pack a day habit. Wasn't that hard to quit really, smoking is fucking gross desu, hate the smell most of all. With that being said, if I'm drunk I'll chain smoke my fucking brains out. Makes being hungover way worse the next day.
When you drink coffee or eat food in general, you active your taste buds. When you do it while smoking, the taste buds absorb the smoke from the tobacco, destroying your taste buds and upgrading your chances of cancer and other disease.
>w-we're all going to die anon!
>I don't care, I can still taste food idiot!
Maybe, but significantly less than someone who isn't smoking. Cigarette smokers are pathetic as fuck.
>While non-smokers only missed the taste 13.4 percent of the time,
>current smokers missed it nearly one out of every five times (19.8).
that's not very much senpai
Pipe and shisha > > > > all
pic related my pipe, mosquito swatter (not related), french cahier d'activités (not related) and my high quality pipe tobacco.
This was the most legit sources I've found. From all the article I've read, it changed the form of the taste buds making taste more dull in the long run. Still the article do not speak of direct smoking while eating, but rather the consumption of nicotine in general.
If you want to lesser the damage of nicotine on your taste buds, smoke before eating or drinking. Water don't count.
I went to germany for a while and everyone was amazed about how I rolled my cigarettes and someone even mentioned that only fresh off the boat immigrants are the only ones who do it there
Is this true?
>ask colleague to buy a pack of gauloises cigarettes during his visit to Paris
>4 of the 20 cigarettes had to be thrown away because the tobacco had somehow become clumped together, damp and unignitable
French quality control, everyone.
I certainly can be a real pleasūre, but only if done occasionally. Much like drinking, regular usage will only invite a plethora of health issues down the line. I seriously hope you guys aren't regular smokers.
>the entirety of france smokes the same tobacco
I'm (>>53739212) not >>53739213

>cigs themselves offer no uplifting or positive effects on their own
True, but to an extent. If you aren't smoking weak shit like a bitch you will feel your body getting number due to your blood vessels constricting for a little while. It's like having an alcohol buzz, not positive or negative on it's own, just depends on your state of mind and if you enjoy the feeling.
