Default What's the point of smoking?

Why do u smoke? Isn't it a bit stupid? Spendin' [lots of] money to die slowly?
It is a major health hazard (both for u n the ppl around u), so why do they allow tobacco n not salvia divinorum?

Come on, Share Wit' Us

it is an economic issue. tobacco factories make lot of money and have powerfull lobbies. it's enough for politicians and decision-making people to shut up.

well you haven't tried smoking, so you can't tell if it is stupid or not
I never tried smoking either

but it's the addiction man, the stupid act is the first time you smoke, because that is when you are hooked
bas later it's not even your fault anymore you need to smoke, you can't stop

and yes it does give pleasure, you want that nicotine to flow through your veins

we can't say that nicotine gums are harmful. they have surely some side effects, especially the first days of treatment.
the most cited side effects are throat and mouth sores, feeling of indigestion, jaw muscles ache. if chewed too fast, patients may experience nausea, vomit and dizzisness.
Tobacologues usually advise patients to chew a nicotine gum each time that they feel the need to smoke..but no more than 2 gums /hour or 30 gums/day (considering the sleep time). overdose symptoms (rarely seen) are tachycardia, blurt vision, cold sweats and confusion.
i advise all who wants to stop smoking to consult a specialized physician (tobacologue or pulmonogist). there is a center of smoking cessation in lebanon at "hotel-dieu" (centre de sevrage tabagique) headed by Dr AOUN. i don't won't to appear as making a propaganda to this center, so who knows about other centers or tobacologues, cite them here.

in my opinion 1st it starts like " choufo ana bdakhin" since everything bad in here people enjoys it (za3ranet, dekhan, machekil etc etc....) enno chou ya ba ana bdakhin .....and others starts it becuz of stress and dunno what but they're rare.....enno a 14 15 year old boy what kind of stress does he suffer from....so there's no point of smoking ...the ones who say becuz of stress well there's plenty of others good ways to relief stress like music and etc etc......

It usually starts with peer pressure then people keep doing it because they get addicted. Some people are also self-medicating for anxiety because cigarettes have a calming effect but there are WAY better ways to deal with anxiety.
