yeah i have a kind of...moral dilemma.
a silly teenager wants to smoke but isnt man enough situation

well i have deliberated doin it for a looong time and havent brung myself to really do it yet because:
all my friends (90%) pay the crap out of smokers and how much they suck etc. -
even my "badass rock n roll" band say they ****ing hate smokers and all.
but every one of my heroes smoke(d) like a chimney, like Page and Hendrix - the usual suspects.

got no problem with cancer and all that crap,
and already spent hundreds of dollars on lookin like Slash from G'n'R so why not go that step eh?

my problem is i dont want all my friends to hate me
any advice would be coool

Thats the attitude! Copy some one you think is cool!

Up to you, you know the risks, your life. Apparently it releaves stress and what not (make you look cool like slash ) However your friends are going to pay you out. No i don't think you should.
#6
Wouldn't bother, you'd stink, be out of pocket quite alot, plus it sounds like you really don't want to...
#7
srsly. i smoked. you get nothing out of smoking. if you want something out of smoking. smoke weed

best advice if you wanna do something that gives you something

smoking does nothing. trust me.

you want to smoke, to imitate Slash...?

I've heard a lot of excuses most of which are "i only do it with friends" or "its just a social thing"....but that..

lol yeah dont smoke.
#10
don't do it... seriously now you have the choice and it might seem "hard" not to start because of whatever situation u are in, but if you start u will want to stop someday and u won't be able to. I have friends that smoke and every time they say how bad it is, but they just can't stop it.

are you suicidal?
if so, go ahead and prepare for a long and painfull death

if not, why even think about it?

dont smoke..

You know a pack of cigarettes costs about €5 here, most smokers buy about 1 pack a day (if not more), that's €150 a month you just throw away for smoke.. Good luck saving up for more gear when you're doing that

I thought the Pit would want you to smoke.

Hell no, people hate smokers around here.

I suggest just try it once, if you don't like it, you don't like it and that's up to you. If you do like it prepare to be stress free for the rest of your life
#15
its your choice. if you want to smoke then smoke. shouldnt do it cos someone "cool" does and shouldnt not do it cos your friends will hate you. if they care you smoke, its their problem
#17

so...basically, you want to start smoking because you think it's cool and all your heroes did it. Nevermind the cancer and all the toxic **** you are getting into you.

...What are you? 11? Don't smoke. It sucks and it takes too much to stop

can't wait to hear what other stuff you are willing to do just "because they do it"..seriosly...you must be eleven.

smoking or imitating someone's behaviour won't help you playing guitar. concentrating that much in how "cool" you want to look is just being a poser.

Smoking is NOT cool.


Being good at guitar is cool.

Being good at sport is cool.

Not having cancer, stained teeth and bad breath is cool.


Smoking is NEVER cool.

My guitar teacher is a chain smoker, and yesterday he told me how jelous he was of me cause i dont smoke. Its a bad ****ing habbit, seriously your going to become dependant on a light on a stick and your going to hate it later. Theres nothing good in it, and it just becomes a sign of a weakness.

How about trying to stop looking like your hero and start playing more like them?? Im sure if slash tried to look like his hero he wouldnt be slash today.

Wow. Do I smell a coincidence in the air? If you can give two examples of people who managed to (so far) live free of lung cancer then I guess it's safe for the hundreds of thousands of other people who smoke.

This little passage also reminded me of this hilarious picture with a ring of truth found in the demotivational pics thread:

That might be the worst excuse I've ever heard for smoking, and they're all bad. Smoking doesn't make you look cool, it makes you look like an impressionable ass, and from how you described yourself you're doing everything you can to be a poser. Hendrix died as a result of drug use, do you want to follow that too? Don't start smoking.

Whenever I see a smoker, I see a pretentious bastard with no self control.

if u can control dont start . i smoke man , it's not like i'am a poser or anything , just when i dont smoke i can a tight feeling in my chest , soo i smoke ....

drink vodka or beer ... it's good for you
#36
i hate people like you. People that smoke just for the image piss me off. if u start smoking you will get lung cancer, you'll suck at running, have ****ty breath, waste alot of money, maybe start a bushfire and people in general will look down upon you. Why would you want to start smoking?

One thing you'll never do is know how hard it is to quit. Trust me, you don't wanna. It's taken me years to finally quit and I've now gone 5 months without. You might think "I don't have an addictive personality" or "I won't get addicted" but you will. Even just one little drag. That's how I started. Plus it cost me about £280 a month to smoke. My rent is £370. That's how stupid it is.
