I know a lot of you smoke, but I'm curious whether you think it's crap anyway.

CRAP, and I smoke. I'm tired of it and I actually enjoy, maybe, one or two cigarettes per pack. The rest of the time I'm like, wtf? I switch back anf forth between smoking and dipping--which is also CRAP. They've banned smoking in bars here, which is total CRAP because smoking + drinking is definitely NOT CRAP.

I'm somewhat allergic to it. It bothers me to the extreme, but I wish it didn't considering my parents smoke, and I have to be around it sometimes.

They just did the same thing yesterday in Idaho, but under the guise of a "restaurant" smoking ban. However, if a bar serves up a ten-year old bag of pretzels or a pickled egg, the bar will pretty much fall within the definition of a restaurant.

It's pretty unbelievable legislation to me. Where are you, tobacco lobby? Is it possible that I might come to miss the halcyon days of Jesse Helms and Strom Thurmond?

I smoked for 11 years before quitting 3 years ago.

The first 4 years, not crap

The next 6 years, crap

The last year complete mega-crap

I don't know what the hell I was thinking. Somehow the realization at 17 that young females took me more seriously as a potential mate because I had a small controlled fire sticking out of my mouth made all the fucking difference. When combined with alcohol or coffee these little mofos where especially tasty.

The last two years they were not tasty and I hated every fucking one I sucked down. I don't regret all the weed I smoked half as much as those stupid cigarettes - go figure.

Yet, bar, clubs, etc... just wouldn't be the same without half the patrons sitting around with stinky little fires in their mouths. Since I'm all for decriminalized drugs, prostitution, etc... it would be hypocritical to say otherwise for tobacco at these places - NOT CRAP

But otherwise - TOTAL CRAP!

Smoking is good for taking a crap. So I'm not sure if that makes it crap or not crap.

Somehow, the government of Ireland has now brought in legislation to remove smoking from bars.

It's going to create some pretty deserted bars.

in Uruguay, smoking is banned from all public closed places. it´s weird. i don´t smoke, so for me it was awesome. you can go to a pub and SEE a band, then talk to someone that you can actually watch, then you can go home, take your t-shirt, SMELL it, and it´s not filled with cigarrette smoke crap.
for all smokers is hell, obviously.

Not Crap!
I love to smoke. I love to smoke in my home, my car, and in bars and restaurants. Unfortunately soon I will no longer be able to smoke in bars and restaurants. That is crap.

I love to not smoke. I love to not smoke in my home, my car, and in bars and restaurants. Fortunately no one has ever kept me from not smoking in bars and restaurants. In fact, no one has ever noticed that I am not smoking at all. That is crap. I invest a lot of myself in this not smoking, people. Notice it.

Don't make me not smoke all up in your face.

Not crap!

Up until the point where I'm dashing after a flyball or backing up the other fielders, only to bat in the next half-inning and sprint 300 feet around the bases and then repeat for an hour.


But then it's off to the bar for the post-game for a few drinks and all's right again.

Not crap!

Until the next game.
