Giving smokers money
Posted in the Batesville Forum
#1 Jan 9, 2013
Got a friend needing to borrow some money but they are huge smokers, go thru 3 packs a day and all they talk about is needing to buy more smokes and smoking. Money needed to really help them in a time of need but I would like to see them try to quit smoking before I open the checkbook up
Does this sound mean?

Buy them food or pay a bill for them instead then.

The problem is smoking is an addiction, and it is very hard to quit. It's not like you can just say "oh, I'm short on money, so I'm just going to quit now." If it were that easy, patches, nicotine gum, nicotine inhalers, and all the other paraphernalia designed to help people break the addiction wouldn't exist. I hate cigarettes, and actually wish the stupid stinky things had never been invented. I agree with the other comments though. If you don't want to end up paying for their cigarettes, pay for whatever they are needing money for yourself. Don't not help your friends just because they made the stupid choice of picking up a habit that is so very difficult to quit.
