    What is know is that you have restricted your lung's ability to exchange air and with the increased fatty buildup in your vascular system I would think your stamina has been greatly reduced. So for being a tough guy you better hope you can take them out with a single punch as it is doubtful you could go a full round.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I don't think you've got a scrap of evidence that analyzes the taxes smokers pay, including the cigarette taxes and the sales tax charged on cigarette taxes, versus the cost of care for smoking-induced conditions.

    People like to talk about the expense and ignore all the taxes smokers pay to maintain the habit.

    How much taxes do they pay? Is it $50 billion? I don't think so.


    Cig tax vary from 30 cents a pack in Virginia to over 4 bucks a pack in New York.

    Yes, of course. A good world is better than a free one.

    I don't really give a **** one way or the other. If your freedom to smoke is so precious to you, you can always move somewhere else.

    It's pretty obvious to me that they are outlawing smoking in places where people go to see and be seen. No one cares about the online gambler that chain smokes in their computer room, or any haggard, aged individual who still smokes. It's all about mentoring by role model. Every time a hot 20 something lights up at the beach, or in the park, several children see them and associate the smoking with being smoking hot.

    That's how all of us children of the '60s started. We watched beautiful models smoke cigarettes on TV.

    I quit 5 years ago.
