It's the non-smokers lack of style I object to most. They look to me like stick-insects trying to negotiate a syrup puddle.

The quacks love 'em. They can redirect their assets from their children to themselves and when the pot's empty switch off the life support machine.

@maporsche,
I never explain. What you see is what you get. It was easy enough. Obviously you don't smoke.

@maporsche,
it is obvious...smokers do cause more cost on the health delivery line, but they add to the budget lines for taxes, SS and pensions. You are fixated on trying to keep the health cost line down while resisting seeing the big picture.

The big picture is lung dysfunction. I'm older than you, hawk, and I've seen a lot of pain.

Those few who die in a non -ugly way are the exception not the rule, so I am not impressed with your imagery. I dont happen to smoke anymore, but if I want to smoke and take the chance of dieing in pain and shortness of breath from lung cancer that is none of your business.

JSYK, my mom died of cancer that spread to her lungs, she died when her lungs no longer worked, it was ugly, and so far as I know she never did more than take one puff of a cig and decide she did not like it.

I'm older than you osso and I've seen a lot of pain. The idea that pain can be avoided by not smoking is ridiculous. They don't say that pneumonia is the old man's friend for nothing.

What is ridiculous is this modern living, this constantly trying to mitigate risks, constantly trying to gain some extra time on Earth. It is some kind of mass insanity I tell you, it can not be defended on any grounds. It is something to keep people busy, keep the wheels of their brains uselessly spinning, clearly in an attempt to avoid thinking about something else....something that they can not allow themselves to admit.

@hawkeye10,
How am I fixated on that? I'm not sure you understand what my position on this matter is. You and Spendi obviously are reading more into my posts that I'm writing, incorrectly, I might add.

Meantime my roof is leaking. I cannot afford to fix it. I'd appreciate not being just slammed.

@ossobuco,
Or if you prefer.....it is a desperate attempt to maintain the illusion of control in a world that is out of control. It is the desperate attempt to maintain ourselves individually with-in a civilization that is now deep into decay, the next civilization not yet being here, so we have nothing to latch onto.

@ossobuco,
Sorry to hear about your roof.....time for a change for you. If you dont have friends or family to bail you out then you are going to have to find a solution in your community.

You said before that bankruptcy was part of the solution, and it may be, but you need to be talking to people, asking for help, now. Doing nothing is not an option.

osso might consider flattering a handy man. That's the traditional method.

@BDV,
I think smoking only relieves the stress cause by being addicted to smoking.

I mean when some people go a few hours without a cigarette, they start to have cravings and really want a cigarette (I think this is mistaken as stress, when it's actually a withdrawal symptom). They have a cigarette and that 'relieves' (meaning satisfies) their 'stress' (meaning addiction).

I have never taken as much as a puff off of a cigarette, and I'm probably the least stressed person I know.
