Cigarettes are bad. We all know that. In fact, I think that we are “overly informed” about the harms cigarettes can cause in the human body. Yet, people continue to smoke, because they want to, or they like it, or most commonly they’re addicted. This thread is not meant to discuss the addiction part.
I perfectly understand the points non-smokers make when they argue against cigarettes. Second hand smoking is bad. Smoking is a pointless habit, etc.
However, I find many non-smokers to be very, very annoying in the sheer ferocity they have against non-smokers, not to mention the horrible “Truth” adds that are just way too over the top, IMHO.
There are also many people that argue, that smoking 2 or 3 or 4 cigarettes is not “better” for your health than smoking more than that, and people who use that argument are only fooling themselves.
I’ll have to disagree. I think smoking 3 or 4 cigs a day to be a much better alternative than smoking a-pack-a-day but a worse one than not smoking at all.
I won’t go into details in this post, for reasons involving length, but I am a “week-end” smoker, and have been for the better part of a year and a half. When I go out on weekends and have a few drinks, I’ll have maybe 6 cigarettes MAX. Many argue this is not a good alternative and blah, blah, blah.
To cut a long post short, I do this, and consider this to be a “health(ier) way of smoking” than other ways.
What ways can a person smoke a cigarette while reducing the damage it does to you?
(Not smoking is not an argument in *this *thread)
