The Positive Side To Smoking

Consider the obligatory expectation to condemn tobacco smoking, based 'only' on its negative reactions with participants thereof.
It is biased from the off.

So - Let's delve into its positives (Only)

I'll start.
Smoking is a good way of distancing oneself from non-smokers.

@mark noble,
Something to do at the bus stop.
Goes great with drinks at the bar.
Makes you look cool.
Good conversation starter as in "Got a light?"
Watching smoke rise from a cigarette is hypnotically relaxing.
Smoke rings are fun!

Thanks a lot Mark, now I regret quitting!

You eventually put one out.
You spend less lifetime annoying others.
The $600 a month spent on smoking keeps you from gambling and other bad habits.

@TomTomBinks,
Nostalgia-promoting.
Darkened teeth (absorb uv rays more efficiently)
Population control.

I'm not pro-smoking, nor do I wish to promote it in others.
I smoke - and enjoy doing so.
But it's a risky habit and should not be encouraged in others.

@mark noble,
It is always very good to have a cigarette with a cup of coffee in the morning.
If your early getting somewhere its always easy enough to just chill and have a smoke.
If a Non-Smoker is talking your ear off at a gathering or something like that and its overwhelming and you want to get away for a few minutes it's you can say, "I'll be back in a few I'm gonna go outside and have a smoke" haha! If I had a dollar every time I had to use that one being as polite as possible.

I just starting using a vape And it for sure cost much less than smoking.

@Kleinmk5,
If vaping will get you away from smoking, I couldn't encourage you more. Are you familiar with FDA's Deeming regulations that begin to take effect on August 8? This might be a good time to start stocking up.

@roger,
Yeah it has been able to get me away from it so far so good. I was not aware with it but i just became aware and read a whole thing about it after you said something thanks for letting me know Roger.

@Kleinmk5,
And yet - There's nothing like a proper fag.
Got a vape, is shite.

cheap baked-beans feed you, but....... Nice beans feed your thoughts.....

@mark noble,
For me it's relaxing. I'm a wrestler and far from a badass, most of the women I fight or see at tournaments are smokers. I'd been secretly smoking for years and finally started smoking openly. When I'm about to fight it makes me feel like the badass I'm not. It keeps me from having panic attacks before fights and my husband actually thinks me smoking is super sexy.

@mark noble,
Distance is is not a good thing, unless those people are oppressing you. Faith is love which comes as understanding engagements with people.
