Now a Fine cigar maybe 3 or 4 times a year with a really excellent whiskey be it Irish, Scotch, or Kentucky Bourbon can NOT be considered as unhealthy. Especially when shared with life long old and dear friends.

Anyone disagreeing is missing out on one of life’s GREAT pleasures.

I think it's time for some seeds. Tobacco would be a good bargaining chip in SHTF. It really grows well where I live.
Glad I stopped in here today.

NOPE! It's called TOUGH LOVE! Thanks for being a good parent. Discipline now will make him a better citizen tomorrow!

I've known a few people who smoked & lived a long life too. However, I've buried many, many more who died an earlier death because of lung cancer, emphysema etc.

Friend of mine smoked all his life, had throat surgery last year, now has lost his voice. Another just last week had to have one of his lung's removed.

I'm just so thankful to God that smoking is one desire I never had. I guess I knew my Dad would have made me eat more than cigarettes!

Quit January 6th 2014 after 40 years. Cold Turkey, was not too hard as I finally had my brain wrapped around quitting.
Now my car stinks and has burns in the seats and upholstery. Oh well, more money for guns at least.
Here in Georgia there will probably always be tobacco grown and cured, such a big cash crop, even if the SHTF it will still be around. Glad I don't need it anymore.

Group od kids I grew up with swiped a pack of cigarets from their parents. We hid in a shed and I got introduced to tobacco. I was 9 years old. That would be 1947 BTW. Smoked after that every time I could swipe a few from the old man's pack. Fast forward to 1975. By this time I was smoking three packs a day, a couple of pipefuls and two or three cigars and inhaling on all three. I'd tried quiting on more than one occasion but failed. One day, a group of Seventh Day Adventists came to the little cow town I was living in with a three day quit smoking program. I figured it would most likely be a waste of time considering my past history but my wife nagged me so much about it that we went. She's been a non-smoker all her life. :cool: Well they said a few prayers, showed some slides and a movie and ended with another prayer. On the way out the door they had us throw our smoking materials into a garbage can. I kept my lighter as it was a memorial souveneir of my toyr in Korea. EWeird as when I got up none of the usual craving for a smoke. :confused: In fact I din't smoke all day. nest two classes for their seminar involved starting and ending with prayers and then instructions on how to fight the habit. I didn't smoke a cigaret for almost two weeks. Fpr spits and grins I bummed a smoke from one of my co-workers, lit up, took a deep inhale and realized I had just gotten mild form of being stoned. I put it out and have never touched another cigaret since. :thumbs:
There is a sad part to this story. one of my best hunting partners father lived in Battle Mountain NV 52 miles away came to the class. He was to be my buddy and I his. He was unable to quit and had aleady been diagnosed with lung cancer. :sad: He passed away just 6 months after doing the seminar.
He was one hell of a nice guy and didn't deserve to die like that. He just was not able to quit. It had that much of a hold on him.

I am lucky, I am allergic to three things in this world, strawberries, polyglycolic acid and tobacco smoke.  That is also not so good, polyglycolic acid is the common dissolving stitch.

I have lard butts tell me all the time smoking is bad for me.
Guts hanging over their belts. Couldn't walk up a hill.
But smoking is bad for me.
The questions is what happens if the Government subsidies and fast food goes away. Prices for food triples. What are the lard butts gonna do?

"What are the lard butts gonna do?"

Live off their own fat till it runs out. The body will feed off itself in order to stay alive. We have an Indian tribe here that the people are so obese that it's amazing some can waddle around at all. One young lady lives across the street from from the Tohono O'dham tribe that would be absolutely beautiful if she could drop 200 pounds. Seems this particular tribe gains weight very quickly during times when food is plentiful so that they can live trough the tough times when gme is scarce. They're genetically disposed to this occurring. Problem is these days food is plentiful, the tribe owns a couple of casinos and nobody ever goes through lean times anymore. Diabetes and heart problems run rampant through these people. Her Grandfather who raised her died of kidney failure due to diabetes and she has it big time. The only good thing for these people is if the SHTF and food becomes scarce, they'll probably outlive us.

Quit smoking in 1977 after 20+ years.
Kept on Copenhagen that started in the early sixties.
Quit that in 1985..
Wife was a lifelong smoker - 16 to 60 years old. Died in 2007 of complications of emphysema. Absolutely nothing would help/make her quit..
Our three children ages 43, 46 & 50 never started smoking. Grandchildren either!

Every adult male in my family smoked growing up. At Christmas and Thanksgiving there would be such a blue haze in the house it was hard to see across the living room. My granddad died from lung cancer. I was 25 at the time and I watched him suffer through the last week of his life in the hospital. It made a life-long impression upon me.

Smoking is one of the absolute worst choices a person can make. I think the evidence is indisputable.
