Re: Will put any one-off smoking

They did show us a film of lungs filling up with tar etc when I was at school in the 70s. We all said never, but it did not stop many of us taking up smoking in the 80s Fact is that the smoking ban in pubs and restaurants & increases in tax have done far more for smoking cessation than any visual shockers. Most people I know stopped because it's now considered anti-social. It's just no longer cool. A brilliant negative PR achievement.

Re: Will put any one-off smoking

I have never smoked nor felt the desire too.
I was at school in the sixties and everyone knew the dangers then .
Why young people smoke today is beyond my comprehension .

That's not my perception. I see lots of young kids, probably aged 16 upwards who are happily smoking in groups. I hate to see it but they will have to learn life's lessons in their own time.

Re: Will put any one-off smoking

It's awful isn't it. I quit 11 years ago and so glad I did but unfortunately my lungs are damaged from the years I did smoke, I was diagnosed with COPD last year but only mild. I keep thinking had I not quit all those years ago I may be in a bad way.

I wish

Perhaps they do that but they don't look cool, but they do look stupid huddling in the cold. Many these days hang out in groups vaping rather than smoking. I think that is harmful too but that they won't prove it for years. Any inhaled chemical is harmful.

In groups = peer pressure.

I gave up smoking small cigars about ten years ago, but the main driving force was the expense rather than the expanse (of my lungs).

I'm still poor, though!
