>jews don't own the tobacco industry
I didn't mind smoking all that much but ever since i quit the smell started really bothering me, Seriously did it always smell this bad?
Fingernails are back to normal but teeth are still somewhat yellowish, I quit about half a year ago.

Why do people in anime never finish a smoke? They keep putting it out after taking a couple puffs, just to light another one couple seconds later.
That shit bothers me way too often.
Smoking would be awesome if it wouldn't be unhealthy and stink as hell. In anime, you don't have to worry about that, so it's cool
I tried smoking once but I hated it
I like the smell though
This will always be one of my favorite scenes of all time.
As always 2d makes everything cool and sexy.
Japan has always had a fairly high rate of smokers, yet they are life expectancy rate world champs. Obviously their lack of tolerance for alcohol was converted into a higher tolerance for lung cancer.
Pretty true i guess. Look at a 3dpd vagina versus a 2d one. It looks like it smells like roses and has never grown a spot of hair in its life. I was going to go somewhere with this but i don't care anymore.
Native Americans cursed Europeans with tobacco as revenge for introducing them to alcohol.
Also people like making money, same as modern drug dealers. There was an old women in my village who used to give teenagers cigarettes for free to get them addicted then she'd start charging them.
Because ciggaretes make 2D faces more expressive and, what's even more important, dynamic. See ACCA: protagonist's face is somewhat bland and reserved, which makes it painfully still, but when he smokes, there's inherent movement in the dialogue scenes.
In 3D faces are already dynamic and expressive, so it doesn't change much.

Ya a lot of Jpanese men smoke. Same in Korea, maybe even moreso. I feel like more than 50% in both countries from what I've seen. Although their cigarettes are distinctly "lighter" tasting than American cigarettes.
Actually, smoking does affect the genes, I think.
Anyway, I think it's ok to smoke for a year or two (only if your body is already fully developed) before dropping it. Sure you harm your health a bit, but during the period it's still pleasurable - enjoyment falls off greatly after that. Quitting smoking is annoying, but it doesn't even take that much willpower, it's like ditching adderall.
Why there is still no anime character that Vape?
I've NEVER understood why someone doesn't put out a healthy cigarette. I'm not talking about shit like American Spirits that say they're mostly natural but still but shit in it, I'm talking about straight up tobacco with nicotine thrown in for the buzz.
With how health conscious the world is now and how fast smoking rates are dropping, you'd think the tobacco companies would switch to this. I mean current smokers don't want to quit at all, but they will because of the health consequences. Give them an option that doesn't have rat poison and carbon monoxide and I'm sure you'd keep their money forever. Plus you'd get the young generation on board since it's more natural and green.
It's not even like you'd have to completely switch over, just produce one pack like that and they'd make huge bucks. Maybe I'm not taking some factors into play, but it baffles me this hasn't happened yet
Also, I understand "healthy" isn't a good term to use. Putting any smoke in your body is going to do damage, but there's a big difference between damage from smoke and damage from the ingredients of the cigarette.
I can't stand talking while smoking, it's the same with food - you don't enjoy the ciggarete and you enjoy the conversation less. I smoke at home and alone, wakes you up and clears your head without blunt push of coffee.
I quit for three years at one point, and the twitchiness and restlessness lasted like only two weeks. Although I agree it's hard not to return to the habit eventually.
Id walk a mile for a Camel. Occasionally Ill do Marlboro Reds for nostalgia. Izmir Stingers were great, and Camel Frost were the best menthols ever
untill anti-smoker fags fucked it all up
Marlboro Ice Boost are better menthols. The default setting is nice, and you can cure any cold if you break the capsule (although it starts tasting like toothpaste and not like tobbaco).
Wait, are menthols prohibited where you live? Truly, a sorrowful existance.
No, the politicians here in burgerstan decided that delicious flavored smokes catered to children, and regulated them to nothingness. Ive never heard of Ice Boost, but I live in a backwater anyway.
ITT: people trying to justify ruining their health using anime as the reason
However, even anime has turned against you
Cease this behavior or be punished by anime
Lets be honest, what doesn't look cool in anime ._.
Well, it is true. We have shelves of flavored smokes here, all with colourful wrappings and cool designs on the cover, and it's pretty clear that only children buy them. I guess methol counts as a flavor too.
Eh, on the one hand regulations suck, but on the other 1.5$ packs with great variety really does lead to half you country smoking. Most they have done in Russia is bumping up the ratings of movies with smoking and banning ads, but I think that has the opposite effect.
Before I fuck off to /pol/, smoking in anime is cool because it brings another dimension to the face. With good directing, character starts to look much more like he is actually in the world around him and not just on one of it's layers.
The question asked is
>Why is smoking in anime so cool?
to which I posit that it's like old noir detective dramas and such. It adds atmosphere and depth to a scene when used well, allowing important pauses at critical times without a character standing there looking like they have the downs with their mouth open going 'uhhhhhh~'
fuck i was meant to say this to
So, do you like to have cylinders in your month?
Anti-smokers are the ones blogging about their smoking preferences? You say "shitting up the thread" to mean "waah they're insulting me", when you're shitting up the board with your off-topic. Neck yourself.
It makes characters look pensive and mysterious.
And the bait thread goes to shit with pissy bitches on both sides taking time from their busy school life to fling poo on an imageboard. Great success!
>they are life expectancy rate world champs
That is actually a lie, old people being alive so long turned out to be a scam by families of the old person so that they could continue to collect benefits.
What's with smokers and blogging? Every single time they show their face here they blog. It's like how trannies always blog in trap threads. There needs to be a study to find the link between degeneracy and desire for attention.
Why smoking culture suddenly being considered as degenerated these days?
Throughout the history smoking is must for men to look manly and cool. Why the perception change now?
Cause cigarette smoke stinks to those who aren't used to it or even those who have quit smoking. Also it's bad for your health as well as those around you. Go to a bar in Japan that allows smokers and you'll want to throw up from the stench.
Wrote a paper on this - passive smoking has sealed the deal. Personal health risks would make smoking even manlier and cool (although more in a "delinquent" than "family man" way), but the unprovoked harm clashes with main attributes of almost all manly character archetypes.
Smoking objectively looks cool, period
It's not good for you, and it isn't worth it in the long run, but it's an undeniable fact
Only in certain situations like pic related
Millennial are basically manchildren they never launched into adulthood. They don't understand that eating a Big Mac is as bad as having a smoke, all they know is what got drilled into them in school and they swallow it without question.
Because Yotsuba said it is.
Smoking isn't bad for you, fucking idiot. Japan has one of the highest smoking rates in the world and also the longest lifespans. Did everyone born after 1990 lose their brain or what? Smoking is about as bad for you as breathing in city air. People still live in the city don't they?
>the jews don't own the tobacco industry
I actually liked how my hand smelled after cigarette back when I was a smoker. But I guess that's a bit different because my sense of smell was absolutely destroyed. Now, 3 years after quitting I can't even stand being near smokers.
Smoking is one of those things that makes life worth living. You might as well live in a bubble if you're so afraid of actually living your life because it might be bad for you. Never drive a car, might crash. Never go overseas, plane might crash. Never do anything that is even slightly risky and live your long, pointless life with no worthwhile experiences.
>poisoning your body makes your life worth living
This is what smokerfags actually believe.
I agree about the "don't live in a bubble" part, but there's a difference between doing something that has a really low chance of killing/hurting you while also actually benefiitting you in some way, and doing something that has a 100% chance of having a negative effect on your body (sooner or later) while also providing no actual benefit to your life.
It's your life so I have no right to tell you to quit smoking. If you want to get lung cancer then be my gues - just don't make innocent passersby inhale the same poison.
>and doing something that has a 100% chance of having a negative effect on your body
My grandpa lived into his 90s and smoked every day. He never had any problems. Japan has the highest average lifespan in the world, also one of the highest rates of smoking. Being fat is more unhealthy than smoking and 30% of americans are obese.
Point is the health risks of smoking are EXTREMELY overblown. Yeah it's unhealthy, but smoking doesn't mean you've got a death sentence and will develop cancer in the next decade 100%. It means you're at a higher risk. Much like eating a Big Mac puts you at greater risk of having a heart attack. But you're not afraid of eating the occasional big mac right? Why the fuck would you be terrified of having the occasional smoke? It helps brain function.
Nicotine is an addictive drug with pleasant effects. So is alcohol.
And in the case of alcohol fermented beverages have interest and complex tastes that many people enjoy.

A lot of things in life give you a higher chance of dying anon. We all die at some point. You going to spend your life doing the numbers and trying to calculate the odds on you making it past 80? Not everyone has some crazy need to make it to 90, we're here for a good time not a long time and when you check out you check out. Hope you don't drive, ever because guess what? You have a 1:122 chance of being killed in a car crash. That would be unfortunate wouldn't it
>the "if you don't like shit then you're underage" meme
You realize it is a literal meme to depict teenagers trying to act mature by consuming alcohol, right? Go tip your fedora at a cheese tasting event or some shit.
>jews don't own the tobacco industry
It's not so much not liking or like something. It's the inability to see why others might like something. Straight edge teenagers are just as much a stereotype as teenagers doing things to look mature for a reason.
Beer is sort of like coffee in that you've gotta adjust to appreciating """""mature""""" flavors.
>But you're not afraid of eating the occasional big mac right?
The difference is that I decide if I want to eat a big mac or not, while being fully aware of the possible consequences.
With smoking, I can't "choose" whether I want to inhale this shit or not when I'm outside. It's not my decision - I have no other "choice" but to inhale this poison. Feel free to smoke at home or in the designated smoking areas, but fuck off from public space.
Or do you want me to provide actual numbers concerning the risks of secondhand smoke?
Not an argument.
>Straight edge teenagers are just as much a stereotype
They really aren't, at least not in my country's media. If your country promotes teenage characters who don't consume drugs then that's a positive. Seems like every other show in the west promotes partyhard rubbish culture though.
If smoking is so cool why is every smoker in this thread such a defensive sounding dork that can't deal with criticism?
Posting on /a/ nixes the cool of smoking.
They're just the same as the rest of /a/, just poorer, more congested and with a yellow nicotine film on their monitor. That's the only difference.
Also a lot of 3rd worlders smoke and they're notoriously defensive about fucking everything.
>hey I don't actually mind if you smoke or not, but would you mind not poisoning others at the same time? I can even provide you with numbers proving that secondhand smoke is not healthy for others
>dude it's a meme xDDD
Yeah, that's the level of discussion I would expect from an average smokingfag.
Thanks for proving you are all 14.
>Smoking doesn't actually cause cancer
>the jews don't own the tobacco industry
is being 14 a bad thing?
it's just a number y'know.
People who start complaining about smoking every chance they get are really obnoxious. And before you reply with the usual "have fun with your lung cancer, smokerfag" or whatever, I have never smoked, I just think smoking in 2D especially looks pretty nice.

What this guy >>157394456 said.
It's a disgusting habit.
It's not. It's fucking not. It's literally the worst thing in any anime it is. This is why I hate anything set in 1900s. Literally, and I mean literally, everyone smokes in those shows. It devalues literally everything else the show has to offer. The worst part is, it's all for no fucking reason. They can easily NOT smoke. Nothing changes, except now everything is a lot more cleaner and less shittier. But no, smoking is cool because the writers are fucking retards. Japan is fucking retarded. Two nukes weren't enough. Thankfully, this generation doesn't SEEM to be as retarded. I remember seeing a lot of backlash against one anon who said he wanted to see a certain 11 year old character smoke as a grown up, because it would be cool. I felt pure happiness seeing no one agree with him. Of course, it was only a single comment, so it just SEEMED like this generation isn't as retarded, but who knows for sure. Hopefully, it is true.
Fuck smoking. All it does is take things away. I'm sick of seeing everyone making their "cool" characters smoke. Every time I see a character smoke, their value drops in my eyes. It adds nothing to the character and it look shit and disgusting. I hate it. I fucking hate it. I still remember when I first watched Eva. I thought Misato was hot. By the fifth episode, I had fapped to her 8 times. I still remember all the doujins I picked. I especially liked a colored one that had /ss/ with Shinji. I fapped three times to that alone. That's how hot I thought she was. But the moment I saw her smoking, i've not fapped to her since. And I never will. The moment she kissed Shinji in the movie, I was disgusted by it. I felt happy she died.
tl;dr people who thinking smoking is cool, even in drawings, deserve to die of cancer.
Just because you need to smoke in order to feel manly doesn't mean everyone else is as insecure as you are. Either way, can you not see the irony here? You're on a board for Mongolian cave paintings and speak of manliness.
Nah, Reddit is all about vapes like the little faggots they are. They are whiny moralfags about traditional smoking too.
Why wouldn't it affect the genes?
Naturally, if you want to be more technical:
Smoking causes damage in the replication of DNA strands which in turn causes damage within the genes, which as you hopefully know are nothing more than sequences of nucleotides.
I don't even smoke for the nicotine rush I just like the taste and feel of puffing on a dart
I guess I'm just a sick fuck
Secondhand smoke kills, you know. It’s far worse than the fumes you inhale directly. Take diethylene, one of those nasty carcinogens your doctor might have warned you about on your last visit. Firsthand smoke has between 5.3 and 43 nanograms of diethylene, whereas, secondhand smoke has 680 and 823 nanograms.Then we’ve got quinoline, another effective one, secondhand smoke has 18,000 nanograms; 11 times more than the amount you’re sucking down firsthand. You can make the choice to blacken your lungs, but don’t expect to enforce that on me.
>I'm not talking about shit like American Spirits
But you literally just described American Spirits, /a/non
>straight up tobacco with nicotine thrown in for the buzz
There's also a thing called snuff, you know. Which by the way, still is fucking awful for you and gives you cancer.
There's no such thing as a "healthy" way to consume nicotine: nicotine in and of itself is fucking horrible for you.
Nicotine is natural. It's a defense mechanism used by the tobacco plant.
The entire health issue with smoking is purely conceptual.
You're burning plants and inhaling the smoke. That is the issue, inhaling smoke isn't healthy, no matter what you're burning to make that smoke.
Has there ever been a character that chews or dips?
I don't think I've ever seen it in anime now that I think about it.
"Jewish" is a way of life, one does not have to be a Jew in order to act Jewish. Just like one does not have to be from reddit in order to be/act like a redditor.
Beer is great
It starts out bitter, like black coffee, but in time you actually come around to enjoying the flavor, it legitimately tastes different over time.
Light beers/Domestics are shit
Try a doppelbock, a belgian, an imperial stout, a decent IPA, anything that isn't coors or other piss
How come there's so little pipe smoking in anime?
How do we end up here anon
Why is /k/ so stale now

It's a blend of a hobby that takes itself way too seriously with one that literally can't be.
That and the dichotomy of cute and firearms
Not enough kiseru smoking in anime.
smoking looks cool irl too, at least to highschool girls.
The perception hasn't change, in anime is still portrayed as the coolesto and mature thing to do. It has to be with a health thing
/pol/ sperging, just ignore.
Hard drive got wiped so I lost my anime girl reaction pictures, I only have scraps to post now, don't bully
Smoking is literally the best thing that has ever happened in the history of the universe. Not only did smoking invent happiness, but it also is the reason why kittens are cute, beds are soft, and why houses keep you safe from rain and giraffe rape. Every cigarette you smoke makes you stronger and your dick bigger. Hitler was a non-smoker and look at how that turned out, he was only able to kill about ten thousand Jews. His non-smoking made him weak and foolish. The guy who invented shoes learned how to make them from a cigarette. Every time you do something cool it's because someone in the world just smoked a cigarette. Simo Hayha killed 700 Russians with seven cigarettes tied together with scotch tape, historians claim it was an SKS but that is incorrect. He also survived an anti-tank round to the face because the cigarette he was smoking deflected it. Fist of the North Star was created when the writer saw the artist smoking a cigarette and said "Hey, awesome cigarette. That gives me an idea, let's invent Fist of the North Star." Demonbane was originally intended to be a cigarette but the author felt there would be no sense of suspense so he downgraded it to a significantly less awesome omnipotent god-machine. Cigarretes are made of air, water, bread and joy all put together. The reason we go to heaven when we die is because it is a cigarette. Studies conducted by people better than you prove that there is a direct correlation between not smoking and being a gay nigger. Don't be a gay nigger, smoke. Smoke everything.
slightly psychotic clingy gf didn't like all my doujin collection and took matters into her own hands. thankfully muh anime on my laptop was spared.
It wasn't the porn part that pissed her off but the fact that none of them had any resemblance to her, of course explaining that it's not real people didn't work out. I should have guessed though considering she gives an evil eye to my little sister whenever she hugs me.
Thank fuck sukebei was not lost.
>gives an evil eye to my little sister whenever she hugs me
It's time to leave her, Anon, Please, for your own good. She might be pretty enough now, but in 10-20 years you'll have had all the joy sucked out of your life by her. You can do better.
european union literally banned all non tabacco nicotine alternatives (like snus)
sweden is the only member country where snus is sold legally, there is also denmark and some other where it's in grey zone but still not fully legal
She's attractive and has a wealthy family which could catapult me in my career if I play my cards right. Plus given her psychotic nature she was still a virgin by uni which is almost unheard of in the land of the sluts (UK) and has deep distaste for almost everyone.
