I was wondering if there are any positive effects of smoking. Obviously they probably don't out weigh the negative effects, just a question.

Any comments like "smoking is stupid", or any other spam/flaming/etc will be reported.

I like smoking, the feel of the smoke, the feeling I get from it and the general aspect of SMOKE.

If I remember right, pot can help prevent alzheimer's.

Smoking cigarettes just calms you down. It gives you something to look forward to.

Smoking pot releases your stress because it creates this timeless world of pure bliss.

I recently read that people who smoke pot are actually a lot healthier than some kids who do not smoke.

it makes me less stressed and its a good convo starter, to ask a girl if she has a light and then BANG stick it in her ass.

Were you intentionally trying to do that? Because if so I must commend you on having a sense of humor.

I'm not so sure it does. like you said, not enough to out weigh the negative effects.

I've noticed that it definitely calms people.

Think about it.

Not only is the nicotene making you feel almost euphoric, you are taking deep breathes.

It's VERY relaxing. For awhile, then you start needing it...

It helps you deal with stress. Actually, it eliminates all stress.

That's just plain wrong. Everyone ever would smoke if that were true. Most of the stress relief comes from the fact that you are addicted and you need one. So when you have one you feel like the stress has been relieved.

Also, if they have any positives whatsoever, I can guarantee they won't outweigh the negatives. I'm studying oncology (cancer) at university, and you don't want to know the stats.

Edit@ LarryJones. Upi might think you are taking deep breaths, but you would in fact be taking normal breaths compared to someone who doesn't smoke. An individuals peak flow output is massively decreased if they smoke.

I enjoy smoking, and the feeling of breathing into my lungs. Also, now the smoking ban is here in the UK, it can actually be benficial to have to go outside - you always end up talking to the other smokers, and it actually makes pulling (opposite sex) easier sometimes haha.

When you're addictied too it calms you down, and I gota say, it's rare but some people do look cool smoking. Ala Duff Mackagan.

No one has ever died from smoking pot. Don't be so naive.


And I was talking about weed eliminating stress.

I'm hoping there was a lot of sarcasm there.

Nope. Give me an example of someone who died directly from weed. Not their lifestyle, not even talking about brain damage or whatever the ****, talking about dying from smoking weed.

It's wayyyyyyyyy less harmful than cigarettes.

A man died from eating it. He overdosed and died.

I know that sounds like I just made it up but it was a while ago, I read it in a paper so I can't find it online.
