My Mom smokes, and my Grandmother smoked while the 3 of us were growing up. I'm the only one that smokes. My 2 boys don't smoke, but my one son's wife does. You gotta wonder just exactly who does these studies. I'll give ya all 3 guesses, and the first 2 don't count.
You just proved the point. You mom smoked and now you smoke. I'll bet mom was really proud that you emulated her. Get her a pack of camels for mothers day.

Yes, I do, but my brother and sister don't smoke.

She doesn't smoke camels. She's 83 and would probably beat you to a pulp for your "smart mouth"

But we are not the low lives of the world..you are.
With every post you make, you describe yourself as a person who does not care about their own health, and others to most likely include children.
Everyone needs an annual health inspection. Do you have children? All you brag about is your job you can smoke at. What kind of job could that be...one good non-smokers care not to do.
You are one sad individual and one I would not care to give the time of day to. This forum is all you have. Again you are a sad individual.
So what do we do about the over weight smokers...or do they not exist.
If smokers quit...guess what...watch them grow...most do not have the will power to control their weight.
I wrestled for 11 years..guess what...I am an expert on weight loss.


You seem to down the list on the evolution of mankind yourself .

My job is one that you and most phobes couldnt and or wouldnt do. I dont need to see a doctor, what I do for a living pretty much tells me what kind of shape my body is in. Not like you, who is a mealie little whinner crybaby.

I can smoke where I work because I work with real MEN.. not whinners or Phobes.! Us, real MEN build America, not tear it down.

The only expert thing you are, is running you mouth about stuff you dont know Jack $htt about. Day after day on topix.

I would tell you about my kids, but you dont need to know nothing more about me. Who knows, your proably a internet preditor / pedhofile.

Poor Sheri, reduced to making up statistics and personal attacks.
Look, Hartman, I apologized to you once, but this time you owe me. You made the personal attack, not me. Remember your insinuation that I "rolled the dice" You seem to be particularly mean spirited lately. Are things not going well in Stepford world where all of the people do everything you want all of the time? I used the number 699% as hyperbole, not as a statistic. It's pretty clear that's where I was going with that. Don't expect for a moment when you accuse, threaten, and throw your tantrums that it will not come back at you 1765% worse.

The question should be do you want your patents to smoke? Both my kids smoke I don't. Doesn't bother me though, they are adults and make their own choices.

Once your children turns 18yrs old and,leave the home you lost all say in what your children do,good bad and indifferent.You only can give your children advice and,hope for the better that they make smart wise choices in life.I personally know that NOone wants their children to start a habit such as smoking but if your children are gonna smoke they are gonna smoke no matter what you or anyone else says.If your children do decide to smoke all you can do is not support them in the habit if your all that much against it.

Do I want my kids to smoke???? What a stupid question! One of my biggest regrets is that I did not quit smoking when they were younger. Now both of my daughters smoke and I can't help but think that I influenced them to start. They both stole cigarettes from me when they were younger (and I didn't even notice!). My oldest is 24 and smokes around my grandson and my other daughter is 19 and is a heavy smoker. Both started in high school. I am currently trying to quit and not doing very well at it. I wish I had never started, but I am pretty addicted.

Hopefully you can find someone to support you in your struggle.

I know that when I have kids I'd be happy to let them start smoking after they're old enough, and have taken enough health classes to know the risk. So probably at about 8 years old. I wouldn't encourage them to start, but if they wanted to I wouldn't stop them. I personally love smoking, and if my children ever want to feel the same love I'd be happy to let them.

To be honest, yes, I did want my kids to smoke, but I did not force them to do so. Fortunately, both my daughters chose to smoke, one at age 9 and the other on her 11th birthday. So when they asked to try, I (happily!) got them some and allowed them to get started. Neither seemed to have any trouble starting, but the 11-year-old took to it a bit faster than the 9 year old. They both are teens now and are still smoking and LOVING it! They both have thanked me numerous times for letting them get started. I did not, and still do not, regret letting them start, and I would do it all over again!

Good for you! That is the same way I felt about it! I let my daughters start at ages 9 and 11 and they LOVED it! My only regret was that they didn'the start earlier. I would have let them start at ANY age they asked, but I didn't force them. But I was certainly glad they chose to start. I enthusiastically said "YES!" to letting them!

I am SO glad to hear from another mom that is following her own way. I am a divorced mom of three wonderful girls and I too love smoking. I began early and my girls are now 13, 15 and 16- all have smoked since each was about 7 to 8. Each girl had asked to try it, and I was glad they liked it. They all enjoy it a lot, now. I myself have no desire to stop. I also have wanted my girls to try and begin early adult things here at home in safety, including any interest in drinking and sex. I would love to hear from other likeminded moms!

BETH!!! THIS IS AWESOME! I agree with you 1000%! I agree about the smoking, the drinking, and the sex! Soooo much better in the safety of home! My girls have smoked for a couple of years now and are getting interested in the rest as well. I will let them "experience life" in these areas, at home, to whatever extent they wish.

Hi Beth, I used to live by Medford myself. How are things going along with your girls getting started on other adult events?
