If there’s one thing I don’t think I’ll ever understand, it’s why people smoke. I mean, I get that once they start they’re addicted and they sort of lose control of what they actually want, but still, it’s just so baffling to me.

I know it makes no logical sense, but when I see someone smoking I instantly perceive them as less intelligent. They could have dozens of degrees and be the top minds in their field, but if I see them smoke they get just a little bit more stupid to me. When doctors smoke, that’s just even worse. I will never, ever see a doctor who I know smokes. That’s like going to an obese personal trainer. Or a dentist with rotting teeth. Or a bald hairdresser.

I’ve tried to think of any positives to smoking, but can’t think of any. Just glaring negatives:

  • Your clothes stink.
  • Your breath stinks.
  • It’s expensive.
  • With the new indoor smoking ban (FINALLY!) you have to smoke outside in the freezing cold.
  • You stink.
  • Yellow teeth
  • Wrinkles and looking older in general


We were at a party downtown last weekend where a friend of ours went out to smoke and this topic came up. He’s suuuuper smart, but that all gets negated because he smokes. Hi, Chong!!

I just don’t get it. It’s gross and you look like an idiot.

I agree! I hate when I even have to walk around someone who is smoking. It makes me want them to just hotbox their house and keep their cancer to themselves.

I recently saw a pregnant woman smoking and it took everything in me not to hit her.

I agree. I think it should be illegal to smoke around children... Thanks for saying what the rest of us think!
