Any smokers on the forum

Any smokers on the forum? Just curious. I'm tobacco free myself and really enjoying the smoke free restaurants.

Nothing worse than going to a restaurant and having to sit in the smoking section because there are no other seats. Now that is not a problem.

The smoking ban is one of the rare occasions where I am opposed to a law that really benefits me.

I agree. I'm not a smoker but I do not want or need the government to save me in that regard.

In my opinion, capitalism is the cornerstone of society. Without it there would be no competition or choice. I think entrepeneurs should be able to develop and establish smokers-only restaurants, no-smoking restaurants, and everything in between. Nobody has to patronize any particular establishment if they don't want to.

Re: Regulation

The I ching says....
>man is not happy working without regulation. If he has no restrictions nor limitations, he will create them!!

How true....I just like it when "he" is "me"..

Not really surprising from someone that campaigns for the right to beat off in public bathrooms. I had you pegged for a smoker though.

I would smoke if it were not a health issue.

Like a lot of folks my age, back in the 70's, I smoked socially. I really didn't inhale that much, but there was a certain convivialness to bars and night clubs in those days.

Smoking was part of a 'friendly socialness' to have along with you drink.

I always liked the aroma of the first puff of a cigarette that was lit with lighter fluid (not propane). Very aromatic.

Still we're better off without it.

Always like the smell of my uncles pipe burning. He had many different flavors to pick from.

You can't smoke on the campus of Highland Hospital. It's funny to watch employees hike to this field behind it just to smoke. You know, I'd consider giving up such a nasty habit if it were so darned hard to do and knowing it will kill me. Obviously it prevents these folks brain cells from working properly.

Quit the hard way

I'm so old and cheap that I quit because I wasn't going to pay the dollar per pack they had just gone too.... in the seventys I think.
However my brother smoked for over 35 years. He quit on friday October 19th at a young age... too young I think.

Howela you and yours will be in our prayers. I do not know what you faith or religion is but I believe your brother is doing fine now that he has returned home to his Creator. I have a Bible verse that I hope will be uplifting Sir.
