though cigars are bad to health as everybody says, however, some researchers says that Smoking May Cut Parkinsons Risk.

Refer to this article published in reuters: http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6294XH20100310

The freedom to do as you want, as long as it doesn't impinged on the rights of others to live as they please...smoke if you want to, but it hurts my eyes and lungs, so please keep it away from me! Here is Australia, smoking is banned in ALL covered areas, and this rule has been embraced by both non-smokers and smokers alike. It is working well to protect everyone's interests. ..and yes-pubs and clubs are still thriving! A great place to hang out-for EVERYONE! People go to one of the designated smoking areas to smoke.
On a personal note, I was hospitalised with a lung condition many years ago, and was there with a 42 year old who had severe emphasema from smoking....to know what it's like not to be able to breathe, I would never want that again. Trying to breathe, for YEARS on end, it is a slow, devastating death.

Here, the "designated smoking area" is all too frequently in the open under sleet, snow or freezing winds and/or snow.

I quit smoking years ago. I do admit that I chew the nasty leaf instead of inhaling it. I would be dead by now had I continued to smoke.

I shared that so that what I say next won't sound all that cruel.

If I am to be forced to pay for your health care, and it looks like I will, morphine is all the treatment you will will receive for lung cancer.

I won't allow you suffer in pain, but I won't waste a million dollars on a lost cause.

Live in the US? Ready to quit or change now?

Well, black eyes...what's your addiction. I started smoking in the sixties. Back then it was advertised and everyone smoked. The
U.S. Navy facilitated it during Vietnam, for us squids. You may think it is a conscious decision, however it is an addiction, just like
the one you have, whatever it may be. So if you consider what addiction you have and it may be that you like it. The question is
can you quit it and how? It is true that smokers are in the minority
and it can be quite embarrassing...so that is one reason I quit, and the other is money.

I came across a quote from the net(I saw it on facebook I think) saying " Smokers are the bravest person because they face death head on each time they pop a stick of cigarette".

I guess I'm one of those brave guys who face death head on.

smoking cigars while driving a motorbike that would be more deadlier(and I do it frequently while driving home from work)

Yeah! all of us are saying that smoking is bad for health, but there are still a lot of puffing it! Some says it there way of stress-reliever to loose their tension. Some says they love the aftermath of smoke! Some says its their rebellious treat from their body (a slow suicidal). Its for them to quit it or go for it and puff some more!

I love smoking. I love lighting a cigarette. I love theway smoke trailing up and curls.
I love blowing massive smoke rings. I love the looks of an ember in the dark.
I love the way it lights my lover's face in the dark after sex.

Yes. I'm addicted and I've tried to stop.
My heart wasn't in it.

I sometimes (no, every other day i guess) i smoke. Although it might call it factual or fictional that smoking can relieve stress, for me it does help (though you might call it as a psychological matter). But i love it, but i'm not addicted to it, good thing i'm not in Ireland because they ban smoking in public places. My source? here! http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/Smoking+ban

it doesn't relieve stress, just like coffee doesn't give you energy, just like alcohol doesn't make u a better driver. But in our minds it can ...

The stress reduction and stimulation here referenced are not merely placebo effects, but very much physically real changes in ones blood chemistry and metabolism.

Thanks for pointing that out...I was going to but had not gotten around to it yet...it is true, there is a psychological affect and there is a physiological affect. After all you are putting drugs into your body, there is a chemical reaction to the chemicals being inhaled or ingested....as for the statement about I drive better when I've been drinking because I am more careful...there may actually be some point where that statement could be true, it is an improbable statement, not impossible.
