yeah ppl who smoke are disgusting! i am 44, never smoked never will, and ppl would take smokes over their kids, example, few month ago in a store a little girl asked for a candy bar, the mom said sorry, mommy needs her cigs, the little girl bagged, and her mommy said shut up or i will slap you, i got so p!ssed off, i said lady, your child is more important then a pack of cigs, she said b!tch mind your own business. i told the cashier put the candy bar on my bill.

I smoke but I don't have nobody depending on me. I work hard and don't smoke around non smokers. I don't go around bumming cigarettes. I like a good camel after supper.

The funny thing is that most people on the draw complaining about their lives;

Smoke.
Drink.
Get tattoos.
Own little dogs that cost a fortune to care for.
Buy lottery tickets.

No wonder they stay broke. I work everyday and I can't afford that...even if I lost my mind and wanted to.

They'll stand at a gas station counter smoking, scratching off tickets until they've spent their check while their kids are home starving.

Thanks, Lily. I say the things that most people know but won't let themselves say.

If you think about it, the same vices that the very wealthy have, so do most of the very poor. None of them make much sense to the logical mind.

I don't really understand what compels them to such fruitless endeavors but I do understand why they are never content. I suspect most of these behaviors are taught throughout the generations.
What I cannot grasp is why the traditions of the family loons are what's stood the test of time.

You know that somewhere down the line, they had families that worked and secured the necessities and rested when they weren't doing it. They had ancestors that realized that all dogs, especially little dogs cleaned their anus with their tongue and made the house nasty.

That the smoke inhaled from building a cookstove fire was quite enough for a lifetime.

That a shiny object piercing one's skin was cause for concern not an endeavor.

That gambling was not only a sin but a potential sickness and always kept its captive broke.

But, after I leave the craziness of the world, it all falls away behind me when I turn in the drive way. I can't imagine what it must be like to remain perpetually in the lives if these people. Day after day, performing these odd habits and having no real understanding of why other than some learned ill gotten logic. It's sad really. If I were them, I'd stop it.

Why do people like to hold something on fire with their fingers and inhale the smoke?
Let's revisit this. Why do people smoke? What is the positive outcome of doing so?
