You most certainly did contradict yourself. You are the epitome of self contradictory statements. Read back a bit... it's right here in the thread.
Anyway...
Alcohol is a drug.
Nicotine is a drug.
You use both.
You use drugs.
Case closed.
As far as legality...
If people choose to use marijuana, they're going to. If they don't, they don't. The "law" has little to no influence over their choice.
Lastly... of those sorted reasons for smoking cigarettes... I suppose addiction *isn't* one of them.
Yes/no?
No, alcohol isn't a drug.

No, cigarettes aren't drugs.

Yes, addiction is a big part of cigarettes.

Now you want to execute anyone who steals (or is accused of stealing) a gun?

Why does everyone have to own a business? More bigotry? I said they could never manage one in the first place. I doubt you did well with your business.
Where did I say anything about everyone having to own a business?

I didn't.

You're weird.

The businesses I'm associated with have had their ups and downs... but they're still in business. It's the challenge of keeping them that way that's appealing.

I like to work. It's one of *my* addictions.

Apologies if that annoys you.

1- Flat out wrong.

2- Nicotine is a drug. Cigarettes contain nicotine.

3- Addiction to nicotine (a drug) is a BIG part of cigarettes.

Alcohol is indeed a drug, a physically addictive powerful drug that can cause severe intoxication and even death if too much is consumed. Do you just make this crap up as you go along?

You probably like military music too. I have a friend who wrote a book about the justice system in the military. The title: "Military Justice Is to Justice as Military Music Is to Music."

Meh, as long as you know. I'm an addict of nicotine as well. The irony, knowing all the damage it does for the delivery method, knowing all the risks, none of that made a difference when I started. But if I had known how hard it was to stop, I would have actually thought twice.
If you haven't Kitten, I hope you stop for good. I don't know it to be true for sure, but they say that a person's odds of recovering from the effects of smoking will be good if they stop. I have known people who tried to stop and couldn't and others who stopped cold turkey because they had a scare and never went back to it, but I realize the latter is a rarity. My wife smoked for a short time when she was an adult but quit years ago, and she gets really upset now if she even smells cigarette smoke from someone smoking nearby outdoors.

Fortunately, one advantage of being raised as a Christian is that my brand of Christianity, or at least my family's version of it saw smoking as a sin, and I have never taken up smoking, though as most people I have tried it, mainly as a child when others were doing it and put me up to it. There are few things more pathetic than a person with serious emphysema, and watching them trying to get their next breath. It is even more pathetic if they are still smoking.

You are clueless. A drug can be a drug without mind altering effects.

Fermented barley & hops is a drug no different than ergot, a mold on grain is a drug, a drug called lysergic acid or as most know it, LSD.

Even though it's RR, I'm disappointed with his line of attack on this (or lack thereof).

He has no argument so he simply denies facts.

Same ol' same ol'.

At least with Gawd, RR can say what he wants to and get away with it... seeing as there's nothing factual for him to run with in the first place.

Alcohol is a pharmacological/ toxicological agent by definition.

Which can promote an chemical effect by interaction in biological living organisms.

Therefore a poisonous drug by definition.

So is nicotine.

I kind of think that RR has proven more than once he is just here to disagree with others, as he never seems to have correct opinions of his own; at least none that I have noticed.

When that pharmacological/toxicological agent is transformed into a 20 year old single malt Scotch, well, I suppose I've picked my poison.

Actually, they are, just in a manner which causes the inverse effect that most other chemicals do, they do make you actually more clear headed. But that is still a mind altering chemical. Nicotine slows the reactions for emotions, creating a calming effect, by blocking the recepters of these other chemicals that cause emotional responses. It is also why it's highly addictive, the brain gets use to not having those emotional reactions, so when you remove the blocker it's like a rush of emotions, and the brain doesn't like rushes or chemical reactions. So it causes the cravings for the nicotine.
.. dang good summation Kitten ..

.. smokers hide their feelings. Instead of crying or yelling, they reach for a cigarette. When interacting with a nicotine addict, half the time you're dealing with the drug instead of the person ..

.. ask Aero about trying to quit ..

No, just the ones that use those guns in homicides.
