Maybe this is enough for OP to realize how bad smoking is! Seriously OP though, Every cigarette has 7,000 chemicals in it. It also contains tar,nail polish remover, rat poison,formaldhyde-might be spelt wrong- which preserves dead bodies and many more chemicals! Try to quit now OP,even after smoking 1 cigarette your chances are higher for cancer. Props on smoking outside too though! Second Hand smoke is almost just as bad as actually smoking! :)
Jusssssss letting you know, as a recent ex smoker, when ppl talk bad about smoking and mention all the crap in it its just annoying enough to make us need to go take a smoke break yet not annoying enough for us to stop. And listing the facts is pointless cuz we kno more about it than you.
For the opinionated non-smokers: you're the same as the people that will sit down and give the statistics and living conditions for cows to a person eating a hamburger. It's condescending and rude. Be happy that people can't smoke in elevators, buildings, and restaurants. STFU and let them live their lives. This person smoked outside, if he has kids he's probably keeping them from second- hand smoke.
172: This person did something stupid and got hurt doing it - then posted about it online. Giving them shit is exactly what should be happening. Its funny though that you think because theres been recent evolution in smoking law that it negates everyones right to not only think the activity itself is stupid, but point it out in any way. If you're hearing from non smokers about your smoking, then you are doing it around them or talking about it. Thats the reason you're getting bitched out. Deal with it.
Selling/buying cigarettes is a huge money maker and a big part of the economy as well. I say if you're against smoking, don't smoke, but if you're giving a smoker shit for the choices they make, them you're a dumbass. If someone wants to smoke, deal with it. What harm does it cause you? Besides having to breath in a little bit of smoke for a couple minutes. And I am not a smoker and I am not supporting smokers. Just shut up and let the people do what they want and go shove your self righteous smoking is bad shit up your ass and stop giving smokers a lecture about their choices. Other than that, YDI for not wearing shoes.
Really? What harm does it due to you? The smoke u "breathe in for a couple minutes" has a name, second hand smoke, and it is pretty much just as bad, people who smoke are morons, and for people who say that you wouldn't like it if a veggie bitched at you for eating a burger are dumbasses too, meat doesn't hurt anyone around or the person eating it...
I don't really think all you said about "smokers" is true. I don't like generalizing a group of any kind. And I think that just because that is your situation doesn't mean that that is necessarily the case for everyone. Most people who smoke are extremely ignorant of all the facts. Or they do it because it's cool and they know absolutely nothing. And for some, they stop if people they care about show their support. Someone I work with is a respiratory therapist. He works with people with COPD all the time. And other people with diseases that destroy your body using smoking. What you said might be the case with you and some other people you know, but if that's the case, you really need to have some self respect.
Cigarette companies dont market to kids anymore and the people that use them most likely know effects. There are cities in the us that are trying to ban smoking outdoors. Can you see an infringement of rights? 184 op deserved it for not wearing shoes and I don't smoke- never have. 200- I was not trying to equate eating meat and smoking, I was trying to show that preaching to someone about what they are doing (when it doesn't effect you) is annoying. And no, it wouldn't effect you if someone was smoking, you probably have to get closer just to tell them about their habit.
How do you go outside when it's cold out & not realize you have shoes on until you burn your foot on your cig?
I agree, I have to hold my breath when I walk past smokers because I want to avoid as much second hand smoke as I can. One of life's lessons is, if it hurts you, you tend to want to stop doing it. OP's fault and yes the alcoholics should cut themselves they got themselves into alcoholism not anyone else.

#6, YDI for being such a fucktard. And to all you anti-smokers, you have the right to not smoke, just as we have the right to smoke. If you don't like it, go somewhere else. It's idiots like you that have bitched and moaned so much about smoking that it's almost restricted everywhere but your own house, which people like you are trying to ban too. There is plenty of non-smoking places in the world now (again, thanks to people like you), so quit crying and go the fuck somewhere else. Peace, I'm out.
You shouldnt say ydi because you smoke. Because for some people, they started smoking before anyone found out it was really bad for you. One of my friends parents started smoking on a dare. One of his classmates dared him to try it. He inhaled and coughed. Since he was embarassed about it, he kept smoking until he was good at it. Then they found out it was addictive. Then they found out it causes cancer.
These are my favorite types of smoking side effects since they are indirect. Another one I heard that was particularly amusing related to the outlawing of smoking in indoor public areas, for example a bar. It said that since smokers have to go outside to light-up, they often leave their drinks unattended inside which leads to them getting date-raped. Not the type of side effect you would traditionally associate with smoking.
A. I'm pretty sure OP, along with the rest of the free world, is aware that smoking is harmful. That's probably what the gibberish on the boxes is about, huh? B. OP didn't "deserve" it for being a smoker. Going outside was courteous. On instinct, he snuffed it out, but foolishly forgot his footwear. That idiocracy would be why he deserves it.
