*sigh*
I'm going to feel like a total prude/obviousman for saying this, but:
CIGARETTES WILL FREAKING KILL YOU in a SLOW and PAINFUL DEMISE lasting SEVERAL YEARS.
This is a sore point with me since an uncle of mine got lung cancer due to his habitual smoking.
Also, my Mom's ovarian cancer has resurfaced and we are facing ANOTHER bout with chemo. And of course there has been the breast cancer suffered by my Grandma and one of my aunts.
Dammit, cancer, leave my family the fuck alone! :x

Dear god, shut up. (and honestly, I do mean this in the nicest, sincerest way I can fathom putting it forth.)

I have the utmost sympathy for losing beloved family members to Cancer. I simply cannot stand people who preach at other people for their habitual rituals, unless the habit has gotten so out of control it completely consumes them (read: crackheads/methheads/cokefiends/etc) and eventually destroys them.

I also like to bring up the point that a friend of mine passed away a few months ago, I knew him from work, he did not smoke, he did not drink, he did no drugs. He was 39. He died of Cancer.

Cancer comes from a wide variety of places, situations, and activities. It's something that's not completely understood, and is something that is born in the body, it just requires something to unlock it at whatever age it decides to come out. At this point I'm almost considering the idea that cancer is what has been killing people off in mass quantities for millenia, we just were unaware of it at first, and didn't understand it, later. There are plenty of other, agonizing, terrible ways to die beyond Cancer, as well. The most important thing to understand is that smoking is not the only way to cause cancer. inhaling it isn't the other only way to cause cancer. Cancer can be triggered from a wide variety of things, as far as I understand based off of headlines stating "Study shows _______ can cause cancer".

I understand you are young and may not fully understand everything (does anyone, really?), and yes, you have a reason to dislike smoking. A personal reason. It should really be pointed out that yes, you do sound prudish, and rude. Attack anyone outside with this attitude and they'll mark you a loser/tool/idiot for life, even if you mean well.

Shoving your beliefs down peoples throats, especially when unprovoked, pisses people off.

There are different kinds of cancer.

My problem with people who rant and rave about this is you'd probably have a hard time finding someone who smokes and DOESN'T know they're bad for you. Bottom line is they aren't illegal and he's choosing to do it. It's not like he's a five year old who doesn't understand.
My grandfather smoked everyday since he was a teenager, the cancer didn't killed him.....

....the tumors did.

Dieing from cancer is another thing too Dotty

I can't decrease my chance of getting breast cancer, but I can decrease my chance of getting lung and skin cancer.
so
yeah

:oops: I'm sorry. Smoking has been a touchy thing with me, but that gives me no reason to go and preach like this.
I really don't like shoving my opinion in other peoples faces, but I guess I just lost it a bit.

Bleagh. I feel like a jerk. Sorry about all that, Robby. Hope you can forgive me.


Great, now we need to find something to mop up the drama. I wish I would stop doing stuff like this.

Sorry, forgot to mention, he died from skin, lung, stomach and they suspected colon cancer at the time, which turned out to be accurate.

I never asked which one did him in, but it was everywhere. I'd talk more beyond what I have to say below, but I'm not following what the "dying from cancer is another thing and the so, yeah" parts were related to exactly, since my entire post was about trying to understand cancer and how people die and get sick from cancer and that its not completely isolated to smoking.

Dreamy, I think we all at least sort of understand you were trying to help. I'm unsure if you need to apologize or get mopey, either. Lesson learned, all is well, hooray for everything.

moar picturez plz.

Pft Dream, no sweat, all is forgiven. Believe me, I know smoking is a touchy subject with some people. But as it stands, if I drop a couple years early, I've lead a good life, and I'd be getting out while the going was good. Should I get married and have kids and all that, hell, I'd drop the smokes in a heartbeat, because at that point the need to quit outweighs the enjoyment I get from the things. But as a few people have said, you meant well, even if it may not have come off quite as well as you'd have wanted.

Anyway, the cirrhosis will kill me WAY before the smokes.

With a hidey lidey lidey and a hidey lidey lay
We work and we make cigarettes all hidey lidey day
So folks can get a breaky from their stressful lidey lives
And relaxy with the cigarettes we make all day and night

I like to have a cigarehette every now and then
It makes me fee-l calmer when the day is at an end.

And if it gives me cancer when I'm eighty I don't care
Who the hell wants to be ninety anyway?

So with a hidey lidey lidey and a hidey lidey lay
We work and we make cigarettes all hidey lidey day
So folks can get a breaky from their stressful lidey lives
And relaxy with the cigarettes we make all day and night


Pimp does not endorse smoking. Neither does Pimp care much if people smoke... so long as they don't blow it in her face.

Me and my bff were looking for costumes at Halloween Express, when I came across masks of presidents and crap. I had too much fun with them and the following pictures were taken. Enjoy.
