    • Please I don’t mean to insult anyone?  It’s just that these young kids have been educated about the hazards of smoking, yet they do it.

    • I don’t know how they can afford it! My stepdaughter is nearly 30, she has no job, never has any money for gas to go look for a job yet she seems to always have the $8.00 it takes for a pack of cigarettes!

    • Being a smoker myself, besides the nasty addiction, one upside to smoking for me is really socializing.  Smokers tend to talk to each other more often during their smoke breaks at work or elsewhere.  

      As for youngsters, I think one part of them mistakenly think they can show that “I am now grown up“.

      IMHO

    • How can kids be so stupid?  My sister in law did that when we were 19-20.  I never could understand it.  What does smoking prove other than how stupid they are and how frivilously they spend their money.

    • China Doll, I agree, we smokers tend to socialize on smoke breaks and I’ve met some awesome people who share the same need for nicotine. $8?! That’s a bargain. I pay $10 and some change for mine and in NYC they‘re almost $14 a pack. Even though tobacco is legal, those prices should be illegal! I try and stretch a pack for like 3 days, which only works during the week, the weekend I tend to hang out; smoking and drinking go together. I used to scold the surgical residents I would bust outside smoking. They of all people know what lung disease can look like, yet they do it. It’s a habit, and nicotine is a tough addiction to break. I would be more worried if they were smoking marijuana or meth which many young adults do to fit in with a certain crowd they perceive to be popular.
