    To each his own.
    I quit smoking 30 years ago.
    But I don't preach about what others do and come off hypocritical about it, not that you are.

    Not that I am an extreme anti-smoker but I do think that it is good to ban smoking from shops, bars, restaurants etc.

    What people do in their own house or car is their choice and I will not interfere with that but as a person with COPD I try to stay away from people where smoking takes place and try to prevent driving with someone who smokes.

One would think if the bar owner who's business is to know what the customers want has to be "bought out" for the night to prohibit smoking that he knew it was a loser.
    I remember Moon talking about that.

    I have occasional slip ups but am quitting cigs specifically. I'm using the e-cigs right now with a lot of success but every once in a while have a cigarillo, clove, sometimes break down and buy a pack, but never giving up cigars. I find that I feel better with the current pace and for sure don't miss feeling compelled to have an inventory count and have to run to the store to buy a pack but I feel the same way, if people choose to smoke more power to them.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Re: CVS becomes first big US drugstore chain to drop tobacco

    Btw, I smoked for the first time a few weeks ago, the four or five a day that I know the body can clean--haven't since.
    I couldn't finish a whole cig, and had to sit down from spinning out.

    Back in the day when cigs were so cheap in the 70's,
    the brothers at college showed me how to strip the end of a cig and reload it with other "stuff".

    It definitely changes if you take a break, noticed that myself.

    Not quite a blunt.

    Re: CVS becomes first big US drugstore chain to drop tobacco

    Actually stealing cigarettes is a major problem since it is one of the hardest addictions to buck. Recently they lost a truckload from a truckstop between here and Chicago. Which people exactly do you think Obama has made it possible to get rich off sick Americans? We do have the most expensive healthcare system in the world and have for decades, why has it just started bothering the conservatives? Now specifically exactly who are you talking about?

    Something smells!
    He said "my administration's efforts," which is accurate.

    McDonalds should be free to stop selling fried food if they'd like....and me saying such a business move would be a poor one wouldn't counter such an idea
    You should tell that to the Fox News lady who seemed to wonder whether it's legal for CVS to do this.

    Solution: Put a big crucifix and one of those holy water thingies next to the ordering counter. You're not at a fast food place, you're at church!
