The people who complain about smoke are the ones whe eat 2 boxes of Ho Ho's and 2 gallons of ice cream everyday. I am sure some people on the board gamble. Hey maybe some are gay or cheat on their spouses. Life is full of bad habits and choices get a grip folks. They could write an article about any of us and our bad hapbits. Mine is drinking and having fun. What's yours?

How many of you condeming the smokers are fat. I would say by the looks of the people I see around here all of you. We all have vices that includes eating the wrong food, smoking, drinking,gambling ect. So I say if you want to tax vices tax ALL of them that includes twinkies and ice cream.
What is with you smokers that you think it is a war between fat people and smokers? I have seen PLENTY of FAT SMOKERS! I agree we all have vices. If you are upset about being taxed for your vices - then protest to your representative or to the American Lung Association which by the way has plenty of skinny members. Or maybe you want to blame asthmatic children for conspiring against smokers? You are blaming the wrong people.

Any people who comment on people who smoke who never had any kind of physical addiction can rot in hell. You never have know the feeling of having no power over what you can do. Its very hard to quit. If you've never been there. You most probably have an addiction yourself that you haven't become self-aware of.

I think some of the posters on here are misinterpreting my point. I never said that he shouldn't smoke -- it's his choice and it's his right. Do I think it would a good idea for smokers to quit? From a health standpoint, absolutely...but that is their decision and I'm not going to tell them they can't/shouldn't smoke.
My beef with the man in the article was with him blaming an ex-girlfriend for his smoking again.(Just going by the line in the article that states "He blames it on a woman." My gripe is that there is no personal accountability for people's actions these days. Everyone wants to blame everyone else and, in so doing, behaviors don't change when you don't think you are the one prompting the behavior. She may have been the catalyst for getting back into it but the fact that he is still smoking 20-30 or more years later cannot be blamed on her. It is solely his choice to continue to smoke. As for the comment that his smoking doesn't bother me or my life -- maybe. However, if I have to be around him and breathe in the second-hand smoke, that bothers my life. If my tax money has to go towards paying medical costs for people who develop smoking-related diseases (not saying that is the case with this man), then that affects my life.
I have not said he is a bad person for smoking. I have not stated on this board that he shouldn't be smoking. My posts are about taking responsibility for one's own choices and actions.
Omfg, get a life you dolt. This is the 3rd repeated post and everyone got your stupid opinion the first time. YOU are the one who is missing the point. Yes, that is WHY HE STARTED SMOKING AGAIN. Do you understand or have enough life experience to know what a trigger is for past habits or emotional state of mind?! HOLY CRAP YOU'RE FREAKING DENSE. There are reasons for anything and everything in life you goon. Get over yourself.

Yes, I have had a lot of life experience and have been through more things than most people that I know. Actually, I am not dense at all nor am I a goon. I am a person who is entitled to their opinion (as is everyone on these boards) and, in the process, have tried to be courteous to all who have replied to my original post without resorting to name-calling or telling anyone that their opinion is stupid.

Obviously I have hit a nerve with you and I'm sorry for that. Not everyone is going to agree with each other's opinions and sometimes people just have to come to the conclusion of agreeing to disagree and move on which is what I did yesterday. However, given the tone and content of your e-mail, I felt that I needed to address your comments. Wishing you a good weekend.

Your posts are so bad they gave me cancer. They also made me start smoking again. Thanks a lot. It's all your fault.

<quoted text>I guess we should ban fatty food too. I am sure you probably weigh 400 pounds. Do not see many skinny people in Adams County. So if you smoke ok if you eat to much ok. I want the goverment out of my life.(And all the do gooders who think everything is bad for them.)
Even fatty food has nutritional value.
How much nutritional value is in a cigarette?
I cannot believe that in this day and age someone is actually questioning if tobacco is harmful :P

I have seen plenty SKINNY NON SMOKERS eating 3 Big Macs everyday so what is your point? You get over it. Yes, blah blah blah EVERYONE HAS A VICE but you dumb smokers think only fat people (which includes many smokers) got together and are singling out smokers? So unless smokers never eat a candy bar or drink a soda - your second vice is going to be taxed again. So DUH - The point is that it is the FAT CATS in Harrisburg you have to blame.
