If I had a dime for everytime I heard a teacher or adult in some superior position than myself "cigarettes don't make you look cool" I'd be rich... hell we all would be. But is that true? Do they really not make you look cool? Well of course its not true... I mean honestly if you were 14 or 15 (well most people here are but thats beside the point) and saw a video of Miles Davis playing some amazing jazz tune, then finishing his solo, then going off to the side to smoke a cig, and the camera kept him in view peripherally while John Coltraine was being filmed from the stage (which I have seen) would you not think smoking was the coolest thing in the world? Everytime you see pictures or videos of your favorite artists smoking ciggaretes does it not urge you that much more to smoke? Fuck teachers wouldn't make such a big deal about it being cool if it wasn't. All I'm saying is that the nictotine naysayers need to stop using the whole "its not cool" thing to turn people off. It is cool, as exemplified by this awesome picture of Dexter Gordon:



I'm not saying its good for you, but smoking damn sure makes you look cool.

I'm sorry you're such a tool thinking of smoking cigarettes because some musicians do it in pictures

Smoke pot instead. It's much healthier.

Please, putting ANY kind of smoke in your lungs isn't healthy... tobacco or weed, it doesn't matter. Dumb argument. And this thread is not saying which is better, weed wasn't even mentioned in my original post. I realize the majority of this board is in high school and therefore has only been smoking a relatively short time so the whole "its so cool thing" is still in effect, but that wears off after a couple of years or once it becomes a daily routine.

I totally disagree that people should think less of others just because they smoke. You don't smoke or you do smoke, no one should really care unless said smoker is doing so rudely.

It's not cool, and that is coming from a smoker. It is so not cool to smoke. However, 'coolness' is not a big reason kids do things anymore.

As a teen ( I started smoking when I was 14 and still do) I remember not really giving my smoking much thought at all. I don't recall noticing the first time I craved a cigarette, nor do I recall the first time I needed one really badly, like as a stress crutch. However I do remember wishing a lot of the time that I were older. I would act older, carry myself more maturely, and I remember people remarking how surprised they were when they learned my age. People are still taken aback sometimes to learn that I'm only 21, rather than the 25, 26, or even 27 that I've gotten in the past. In all honesty, I got myself started on smoking. Not my mother who smoke since she was 16 (and still does) or my brother who provided me with my first drag (who still smokes and had his first at 12), but myself. I used my money, asked that 18 year old in my guitar class, and got that first pack of marlboro reds, all under my own volition. I couldn't have justified why at the time, nor can I justify buying a pack now with any more remark other than "I'm almost out." When I think about it, subconsciously, smoking made me feel older. It was something only legal adults could openly participate in. I was doing it, and I was surviving on a day-to-day basis, so I must have thought I could handle it.

I can't say I would have thought of any of that when I was 14, but I can say it makes sense to think of it like that now. It was never about being cool. I was never really a 'cool kid' to begin with. I really just wanted to be able to exist without getting fucked with, and for the most part, I was able to.

It shows that they (1) are easily influenced by other's opinions or (2) make bad decisions about their personal health.

Also I don't really want to hang around them because I don't personally enjoy inhaling smoke, and they usually tend to smell like it the majority of the time.

No. The smoking isn't the cool thing, it's Miles Davis. If it was just some random person who happened to play an instrument really well, no one would care, or think it was "cool". It would just be commonplace.

Smoking isn't the cool thing. It's the person doing it. Nothing more, IMO.

Weed has practically no carcinogens compared to smokes. Therefore, your ubteen times less likely to get cancer or lung disease. In fact, if you knew anything, youd know that they use weed to fight cancer.

See now just imagine this person without a cigarette and it goes from "someone I would possibly ask to bum a cig off of and strike up meaningless conversation with if for no other reason than not to seem like an asshole who bums a cigarette and walks away" to someone I wouldn't even look at for fear of vomiting.

Go to your profile and accept it.

Also, on the topic:

There are times where I will see someone in a picture (such as that of Dexter Holland, which you already posted) where the person looks rather neat. However, it's usually only in pictures, and not in real life, that I see people who are smoking looking cool. I'm not sure why, though.

Doesn't really matter anyways.

Please, I don't believe any self-righteous drivel that says smoking something will cure you. Just a sad attempt to try and justify weed as something that should be legal. But you and me both know that the only reason 99 percent of people who want it legal actually believe it should be is so that they don't have to be so paranoid about cops and authority figures crawling up their asses for getting high.

Wow, your kind of an ass

I just said that people believe it helps fight cancer, and its been proven effective vs eye cancer. I never even mentioned legalization.

However, I do believe that smokes are worse then pot, and if either of them should be illegal, its cigarettes.

Pot > cigarettes.



its been said before, but THIS.


...but I don't see how smoking anything makes you cool. Its just that pot is...so much more enjoyable than cigarettes.

I can smoke a joint with some buddies, feel nice an relaxed, have a good time.

I can smoke a cigarette, or a bunch of cigarettes, and be miserable and smell disgusting.

personally, I don't like people who smoke cigarettes. Especially girls, its a huge turnoff for me.
