    Smoking most definitely has psychological benefits. It enables you to calm down during stressful situations. Smoking is basically a comfort food, so it may not be good for your body, but it stabilizes your psyche, even if only for a few moments. Keep in mind, I don't smoke, I never liked the taste of it, but I drink Diet Mountain Dew instead, which I imagine produces a similar psychological effect. It's something that I enjoy drinking to the point that it's addicting, and an addiction to something produces a comforting effect.

    DEFINITLEY conversation over cigarettes and coffee!!! One of my friends and I do that several times a week and I really enjoy it- coffee and cigarettes complement each other so well!

    And the two best cigarettes a day? The first one in the morning and the one after dinner I've tried to quit a few times, but I really missed those two- and I missed the conversations I got into then and couldn't quite get into otherwise

We had our lunch and coffee breaks at a separate time from the smokers, so we got to be pretty good friends with our regular discussions (and they were interesting).

    So is that like introverted sensing, extroverted phlegming?


    As far as benefits, I'm surprised no one has mentioned ulcerative colitis (a cause of irritable bowel syndrome). Smokers have a lower risk of ulcerative colitis than non-smokers. They've determined that it's the nicotine, since nicotine gum or patches have the same effect. Ironically, Crohn's disease, another cause of irritable bowel, is made worse by nicotine. So if you have IBS, smoking can make it better or worse, depending on the cause.



    My dad smoked for 25 years then quit (when I was still an infant). He quit coffee at the same time, since the coffee and cigarettes go hand-in-hand (he was also trying to kick the caffeine). He actually had almost no trouble at all quitting the cigarettes; he just didn't smoke them again. But he had a hellacious time giving up coffee.
    I'm not a procrastinator. I'm a long-term planner.

    Has anyone mentioned that smoking makes you look cool?

    I know, when I'm in public, puffing on my pipe, all the ladies give me looks.














    please someone get it...

    * Challenges the lungs, keeps them from becoming sissies

    * Tracheotomies are all the rage these days

    * Relieves smoker from the duty of performing sexually, since smoker's wife associates smoky smell with her dead grandpa and can't get in the mood

    How much money do you have? I bought my husband an NJoy to help him quit. I'd like him to be around for as long as possible and smell less like my grandpa. *cough* They're not cheap, though.
