I would say 1 in 3 will eventually get cancer of some sort because of cigarettes(a wild guess). It's not only lung cancer you're risking, but cancer in any part of your body that the smoke comes in contact with regularly.
I also say 99% will get some sort of complication of any sort due to smoking.
I recommend finding a different hobby.

that is possibly one of the stupidest things ive ever read.


but more on point, i dont really know. obviously the chances will increase though. try google. im sure you can find info on that.

Seriously find something else to do, if not for the sake of just saving money, or maybe even your life.

It depends on the person. Some people can smoke 2 packs a day for 40 years and not get lung cancer. Other people can not touch a cigarette in their lives and still get lung cancer.

It definitely improves your chances of getting lung cancer, however.
There may be times when it is impossible to prevent injustice, but there should never be a time when we fail to protest it.

No offense, but take it from a smoker, don't smoke just because you "have nothing better to do". It definitely takes a toll on the lungs, and the wallet. After being at about a pack a day for a few years, I can't even run a 50 yard dash without feeling like a just ran a marathon. Smoking is addictive. I love it, but it's addictive as hell. Make your own choice, but at least have a better reason than a 'just because'.

You're a dumbass.

most people seem to get cancer anyway.

can't put a price on looking awesome.

It's not a good habbit to pickup. I don't know any figures, but you are more likely to get cancer if you smoke. Take it from a smoker, don't smoke, it's too hard to quit.

Well if you do take up smoking just because you have nothing to do congrats for being stupid. Get a hobby... you're on a guitar website for god's sake!

Oh, smoking to take up time and be cool... isn't cool anymore, you missed the 80s and 90s buddy.

What did you expect for being such a douchebag? For us to come and welcome you with open arms?

i see a lot of people are anti smoking on here... why else would someone take up smoking? if i said "to look cool" would that have been any better?

edit: and no, its not to "look cool"
#23
lol the fact that your "considering smoking" means that you shouldnt. either you smoke, or you dont, there is no thinking about it. and even further on that point, the more you "want" to smoke, but dont, just means that you are really bored, and you should smoke less

Yes we are pro-smoking. Smoking is good for you and makes you fit.

What is there to gain?

Thank you for attempting to remove yourself from the gene pool.
However, even though you're trying really hard, we still are a bit worried that it might be too slow, and you might accidentaly produce offspring.

No point having money if you're gonna drown, though. He should buy a catapult and launch himself over a large canyon pass instead.

There's a damn good chance of getting cancer, but that takes a while. Find a knife to make it go quicker Mr. Troll

I never specified what kind of bridge. One over a motorway should do it. Bonus points for landing in a convertible.

Well, smoking is like punching a baby in front of cop: doing it once is just as bad as doing it a hundred times. So, do it as much as you can, as often as you can!

I can almost guarantee that if some other smoking-related diseae or illness doesnt kill you, lung cancer will.
