    I've quit cigarettes many times, that won't be a problem. Quitting other drugs-- ones that aren't dangerous, on the other hand.... haha

    I must be a 13 year old boy at heart because the title of this thread makes me giggle.

    "If there was an effective treatment option for your addiction readily available, and at no cost funded from a tax on tobacco products would you participate, and do you think you could kick the habit with readily available professional help/treatment?" - marduc

    After 23 years I finally quit when I got "the shot". I just never wanted another cigarette after that...no nic-fits, nuthin'. It cost me almost $600 but I have more than saved that amount since quitting.

    But the fact is that I made choice to start smoking to begin with and nobody, including taxpayers, owed me any kind of treatment option.

    It was my choice to pick up a cigarette and my responsibility to put 'em down.

    And it didn't cost the taxpayers anything.

    So you think its partisan to think folks should take care of themselves. That explains your wanting others to give you free stuff.

    ohh im sorry.. your attempt to stereotype me based on limited information was not because it was one of those "damned liberal" entitlement ideas?

    And again you stereotype me, the hypothetical has nothing to do with "free stuff"

    but whatever, I threw you a bone to actually try to get you to participate constructively in this thread.

    think what you may.. I am a damn tree hugging no tax paying liberal after another free handout.. you got me., that was the purpose of this thread. I'm done with your distractions.

    Re: Smokers poll

    Entitlement.... controversial
    So we tax the living daylights out of tobacco and then entice men to stop smoking ...as an entitlement ??
    Makes no sense.
    Will health care be that much less expensive when there are no accidents, no smoking, no pollution ??

    No thanks, unlike you, I don't need any bones or anything else thrown to me. I can take care of myself.
