I know everyone has their own issues and mental baggage and I'm not gonna sit here and start claiming I'm an authority on anything.
But the smoking thing to me makes ZERO sense. You want to smoke, fine, save the $$$ and go suck on exhaust pipes from mufflers if that's your thing. At least you're not aiding corporations wallets while killing yourself.
Yeah yeah I know it's the same thing with fast food, snacks, etc. just in a different way. To me there is a difference with FOOD, something you crave by NATURE and something that has ZERO use for your body, except that you trained it to get hooked on it. (easy my my GUT to say I suppose
If you lived in my neck of the woods, I would lock you in a house for a weekend and babysit you and do it "cold turkey" no matter how batshit crazy you got or puked all over the place.
(though I am serious)
I always knew when I was younger that I would NOT TOLERATE someone who was a smoker and it would be grounds for a breakup or not date them at all. So when I started dating my eventual wife, I would ocassionally find a random pack of cigarettes in her purse and I would throw a shitstorm like you couldn't believe. You only get to witness the harmless and adorable Kevin on the forums, not the real life "you pissed me off one".
She wasn't a constant smoker, would have 1 or 2 when she was "stressed" but it bothered me to no end anyways. Long story short, she quit real fast, I guess just to shut me up and get me off her back. But she is glad she did and now can't even understand why she would even do such a thing (we generally eat pretty natural and organic stuff, fresh cooked meals, etc.)
Maybe if mooyagi listened to DEATH METAL he'd have to balls to get up in your grill and put an end to that nonsense, but alas you'll have to be your own deterrent on this one.
Again, I'm not the type to tell anyone how to live there life. You wanna screw farm animals, listen to power metal or watch NASCAR, have fun. But the smoking thing is beyond comprehension. Plus you don't strike me as the "smoker" type (if that makes any sense at all).
You got 1 month. Deb did it, so can you. Take it personal, equate how many CD's you can buy with the $$$ saved. Plus, I don't care how "social" it is. It's "social douchebagery" in every facet.
