    Cutting hurts other people than the one who's doing the cutting. It's an addictive, self-destructive behavior that is psychologically damaging to the cutter, but is troublesome to other people around the cutter as well. A good friend of mine used to cut, and it not only destroyed her life at the time, it pulled on everyone else that she knew as well.

    If you're going to intentionally harm yourself, just play football. :thumb:

    Or rugby...

    Oh, and for the record, smoking is not only a bad habit, it can directly lead to death. Aside from looking cool, there's no reason anyone should pick up a cigarette (and if looking cool is so important to you, there are other ways to look cool than close your own casket a few years earlier).

    i know several people who smoke
    i find it disgusting
    everytime i see them doing it, i am tempted to hand them my knife and say "here, use this. it will be much quicker"

    i turned emo to deal with an overwhelming amount of stress
    cuts heal, destroyed lungs dont

    Not directly. Nobody else bleeds because you cut your own wrists. It only hurts others when they try and step in for you. When you smoke, everyone around you gets a good lungful of it.

    Suicidal for life~

    That said, I don't extend "suicidal for life" to actually suicide. It's hard to be suicidal for life when you're dead.

    While I certainly disagree with smoking. It is a choice to the person, but it is disgusting to those who are exposed to secondhand smoke. The biggest problem I have with smoking is how impossibly difficult it is to quit.

    I do also want to point out that tobacco was at one point a pretty important staple crop for the building up of America, in particular the South. Again, not applauding it, but just saying it has had an important economic consequence in the United States' history.

    ugh its your choice, you make your desicion. Its just like drugs and alchohol. They provide short-term relief to long-term problems with a cost. Its up to you on how you solve your problems, brain-relaxing chemicals or hard work.

    I personally don't think any of the above 3 things I mentioned should be illegal, its your choice.

    I would personally say no unless I led a very stressful life, then I might try to relax once in a while.

    it's both suicidal AND invisibly + slowly murder others. There's just not a single benefit u can get from smoking.

    cool? There's much better ways to look cool rather than sac ur very own life for it.

    it's been 18 over here in the US.. for a while.. now even in some states it is 19 (New Jersey / I believe). [And when i was there there was a store that also required me to have 2 forms of ID to buy Alcohol just because my Drivers license was out of State --;]

    Smoking is bad for you it doesn't make you cool at all :p

    You could say the same thing about a lot of things (alcoholism, drug abuse, game addiction), and if we were totally uncaring, unemotional human beings, it wouldn't be a problem. However, we're not uncaring people, and I didn't say that cutting directly hurts others. Those aforementioned things don't directly hurt other people either, but you try to make the son or daughter of an alcoholic father believe that such behaviors don't have an effect on other people. Yes, secondhand smoke is a bad thing, but emotional pain can just as damaging.

    Eriknance: When someone does something intentionally to harm themselves despite being in theory intelligent enough to know better, they lose any and all sympathy they might otherwise get from me. If they're reproduced and are adversely affecting their kids through alcoholism or whatever, that's one thing, but if they're someone's kid and are drinking just to be cool and get alcohol poisoning, that is quite another.

    have you tried it. I personally don't like ciggarettes to much, but i love flavored cigars i smoke those a lot. You're not supposed to inhale but if you inhale 3-4 hits you get such a big buzz it feels so good. THats why you do it. People in this scociety don't really thing it's cool anymore so that dosen't matter.

    Is it suicide? No not exactly sometimes yes. Does it hurt you? Yes, it does. Is it fun. Yea and thats why i do it. I have nothing at all against peoploe who don't smoke or won't smoke. BUT i HATE people who are dumb to me because i smoke . I feel like beeting them with a stick.

    In fact i feel that every one who says there is no reason to do it is dumb, b ecause as i explained it feels good thats a good reason for me. If it cuts 7 years of my life so be it i don't care. Live hard, die young live by it.

    There are two things i hate it's pricy and the legal age is inncovenient for me. Oh well you guys shoulds try some or at least a couple of shots of Jack Daniels thats even better than smokig and i haven't even gotten into the illegal substances.

    Smoking FTW! Pokemon FTW!

    QFT!

    When I'm asked by a smoker if i smoke, i always say "nah, im an athlete".

    Make them feel fat, pasty, and out of breath :lol:

    Smokings only cool in films- films about the sixties, when no one knew the full extent of the risks.
