Sorry to burst your bubble but a hookah is not sexy. I think a hookah is rather immature. Why would you smoke a substance that is potentially harmful to your body when you aren't even getting high off of it.



Hong Kong kung fu movies are never wrong.

Everything in EVE is a trap.

And if it isn't, it's your job to make it a trap...:)

You want to know what immorality in EVE Online looks like? Look no further than Ripard "Jester" Teg.

Chribba is the Chuck Norris of EVE.

Again, it's not the fact the smoking kills you.

It's the way it kills you.

You get a better nicotine profile from snuff.

Please stop this bad habit. It's amazing how many of you still smoke cigarettes.

Come on, it's not the 70's even the tobacco companies advertise you're gonna die if you do it. Stop now. Ok.

I would very much like the option to put cigarettes in my character's ear/lip, or to add a wad of tobacco to their cheek. :)

Everything is calculated risks, so why take on so much risk with absolutely no benefit? You've been brainwashed to think cigarettes are "cool", make you look "cool" or go well with things like coffee or alcohol. Your self perception is bent.

Brainwashed by 'The Marlboro Man' and killer logos like Camel "Turkish Blend"... and you accept this by making excuses for the product and their advertised perceived "benefits".

You're a product of a mediated reality. You are not free, you are a slave to somebody else's profits.

no more games... it's real this time!!!

I think it has a lot to do with a cry for attention. Whether it be from the 'cool kids' or your parents/teachers. The kids that smoke cigarettes just want attention.

Smoking cigarettes also satisfies an oral fetish or desire to have something put in one's mouth.

Hi OP.

How you can explain that my grandmother is 72years old, helthy, with good i would say condition at this period of time, she start smoking when she was around 15-17 years old, second part, i hear a story about other people who got cancer or die even hey never drink alcohol or smoking.


Live is damn unfair.

Personaly i smoke cigaretes, i know this suck but is my choise and i like it, i wont stop it, because its part of my style.

With full respect to people who dont smoking, that i understand they are great just because they care about others and yourself.

I only smoke cigarettes when I can't smoke weed.

And as a daddy of two with a full-time job I'm smoking A LOT more cigarettes than joints/spliffs, unfortunately.

The problem with telling smokers not to smoke is they're oppositional by nature. You tell them not to do something, they want to do it more, just to spite you. Actually I suppose you don't have to be a smoker to be like that.

All of that is hideously wrong wrong wrong. I smoke only because I'm addicted to nicotine. Period.
