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
- YOU STINK!
HOW ARE THESE APPEALING TO ANYONE?!?!?!
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.
