Things are not only what they are. They are, in very important respects, what they seem to be.
Hubert H. Humphrey (1911 - 1978)
After much consideration on the thought, I've decided that smoking is one of the most discusting habits in the world. Here are a few of my reasons for this decision. - None of them have to do with health; I know that smoking isn't healthy and if those who smoke don't they don't have a high enough IQ - the warnings are on the label for goodness sake.
10.) The smell - there is the smell of wood-smoke and then there is smoke-smoke. Smoke-smoke just sucks. Its the kind that makes you want to go get fresh air.
9.) That smell clings to you. If you are around a smoker, you are going to smell like smoke. It stays in your hair, your clothes, your skin.
8.) The cost. It is way to expensive to smoke. Wouldn't it be better to have all that money go towards a vacation or something?
7.) What it does to your car windows. If you smoke in your car, it takes forever for your wind-shield to de-frost. Say hello to always fogy windows too.
6.) Ashtrays. I'm sorry but an ashtray in use is the ugliest household trinket ever. I want my house to look nice thank you.
5.) Cigarettes on the ground. It is gross to be walking on cigarette buts and they don't improve the landscape around them.
4.) Limited hand use. While smoking you only have one free hand - normally I can't make do with two.
3.) The need for a lighter. Its just one more thing that you have to remember in the morning.
2.) Being outside during cold weather. Most workplaces don't have a smoking room - when it is below freezing, I'd rather stay inside.
1.) Kissability! No matter what kind of toothpaste is used, something about the smoke clings to your teeth, gums, and tounge - I rather not have that shit in my mouth!
Yeah I know this was a random anti-smoking bit, but I was just so grossed out watching I don't know how many people throw cigarettes out their car windows this weekend.Posted by Diana Geleskie at November 15, 2004 8:14 AM
