Witch hunt!

Really? I've not had one since 20th Aug 2012 and I'm normally gagging for one at least once a day. Doesn't bother me others smoking unless its in the car with the windows up then it gets a bit much.

35 years on and sometimes I could murder a smoke. The nicotine hit is unpleasant though.

Read this article, what do you blokes think?
Well I thought it was written well.
I went cold turkey 2 years ago after 53 years of smoking, because of the threat of Emphysema.
On top of which I now make a saving of around £250 per month, and chuffed to bits all the way to the bank.

Did you not think that after 53 years - the threats were a bit....empty?

Anyway, Im glad you are happy, and richer, but there are witches out there who need a good shoeing.

So as I couldn't be arsed to read the op is smoking good or bad now? It's just that I've never smoked but want to look cool and give two fingers to the evil conniving state.....
 
I never understood why people smoke.....you may as well light a fire and just breath the smoke that comes from that. Still, if mugs want to waste thousands of pounds on something that is likely to give them cancer and a horrible death, who am I to argue....that is unless they do it around me as I don't want to breathe their shitty smoke or have it on my clothes.

Way back in them there years, threats were pointless and kept under the carpet (so to speak).
It was a done thing to smoke, even the film stars smoked.
I started back in boarding school, and not to be bullied by the seniors and join their club, then smoke.
So I did, bearing in mind I was only 11, and could hardly speak English as I was brought up in Malaya.
I even smoked Jungle fags.
 
I gave up above 12 months ago. Now I find they ******* stink and they're outrageously expensive here. Nearly a dollar a smoke.

All smokers smell like the inside of satans ******** on bad days.


There is only one way you could possibly know what satans ******** smells like,and I dread to think where your nose has been!You have taken brown nosing to a new low.
 
Hmm, I used to smoke Players Weights, and a German Ciggies called 'Ernte' back in the day....... fecking disgusting they were....

Ernte 23. Bloody disgusting things, unless one is desperate. :)

Still miss the aroma of the various oriental tobaccos at Sullivan Powell, Burlington Arcade, that of the dense and musky pipe tobaccos in Smith's Snuff Shop and the scent of cedar and Havanas in the cigar room at Shervington's in Holborn.
If you are ever in St. James's when it is particularly hot and humid, pop into Davidoff's and browse in their large and fabulously air-conditioned cigar room.
Not only will it cool you down, the spiced atmosphere will clear your muggy head and set you up nicely to chug around the corner for a couple of pints at that miniature gin-palace, The Duke of York.
 
At the risk of resurrecting an ancient post, I gave up 15 years ago after smoking for 27 years, I was 13 when I started. When I was in the mob I thought I was bullet proof, then I got out and things started to frighten the shit out of me, so I gave up, best decision of my life thus far. Oh but at times, just the odd occasion, I get a whiff of a lit fag and I really miss it!

THE SMOKING ISSUE

Smoking...

If I make it to the pointless side of old age, I'll start smoking again. Assuming it's still legal...

Smoking used to be a real pleasure. If tobacco smoke didn't smash your health and break your wallet, I'd start again in the time it would take to nip down to the corner shop.
