Hello all! I’m unfortunately a smoker going on my 7th year. It’s a nasty habit, although I do enjoy it. The best feeling after getting home is a good stretch and a cigarette.
Is there any ex-smokers in here? How did your running improve after quitting, was there a noticeable difference? I haven’t considered quitting before, but running may be the catalyst.
I really like kissing smokers. Especially when the guy has just smoked a cigarette. The taste is just so manly and really sexy to me. I know most people hate it, so just give all the smokers to me
My experience with weed is the reason why I woke up spiritually.
When I’m stoned another me (thoughts) is more vivid. Most of the time ending in small panic attacks
I’ve become to enjoy being in that state and it’s kind of like a little spiritual ware fare going on inside me. The good v evil. But the good always wins
I get stoned because it makes me realize that when I’m not stoned I’m not living life to the full. I’m still stuck in my ego
Has any one else had the same experience
Thanks for your responses. Looks like there are a few of you out there but most smokers can switch off to sleep.
To everyone who has quit, congrats! Everyone who wants to, you can do it!
So, I'm a pack a day smoker, and when I drink a lot, I sometimes smoke more than a pack in one sitting. I have the basic smokers cough and weak lungs, so I'm exploring salt-based options because they feel most authentic.
But whenever I try vaping like Juul, ICE, or other similar alternatives, I gotta take very heavy hits to feel something, I get such a severe cough that I feel my diaphragm go up my throat, and it's unbearable.
Why is that? Is vaping really better than smoking?
Workplaces shouldn't have to accommodate smokers by giving them smoke breaks or time to go outside to smoke. If you can't make it from the morning until lunch time without a cigarette, you have a serious addiction and a workplaces shouldn't have to accommodate that addiction. Some time ago, I worked at a restaurant and saw workers take two smoke-breaks an hour. One coworker would break down into tears if she had to work more than an hour without smoking. That was some serious nicotine addiction! I enjoy soda a lot, but if I took a break (or two) every hour to down a can of Pepsi, my coworkers would probably stage an intervention. Whey, then, is nicotine addiction tolerated as much as it is in the workplace?
Writing on mobile, excuse the formatting. English is my first language however, so feel free to roast the grammar.
Backstory: I just got a job working night audit at an upscale, but limited service hotel. I have been working there for a grand total of 5 days now, and already have a story to tell. I'm so excited to see how much worse this job gets! This is my first time working in the hotel industry, and my hotel has a strict non smoking rule. We even make all of our guests sign a contract saying they wont smoke, party or bring in pets, or they will be charged a damage deposit. And we tell them all of this information as they are signing the contract, so they cant say they didnt know.
On to the story:
The night before, our night auditor did a late check in for a local couple who wanted to stay for one night. We keep our locals on the ground floors the most (first and second) and our business men/high paying customers on the top floors (third and fourth). They were checked in, paid cash, and paid the $150 damage deposit. Typically we do $250, but because of covid, we really need the business so our room prices and deposits are cheaper.
The next morning, I'm being trained. Cast: OW: Owner Me: Guess AH: Ass Hole AHG: Ass Holes Girlfriend RL: Random Lady
AH: I'm here to check out
OW: Alright, I will check you out now. If you could give me one moment please (Owner runs off to inspect the room)
Me: Silently checks out other guests that were there
OW: (returning) Sir, you have smoked in that room, you wont be getting your deposit back.
AH: What?! What do you mean I smoked in that room?! Are you stupid?
OW: No sir, I can smell it. You will not get your deposit. Please leave.
AH: No, I'm not going nowhere until I get my money! What are you gonna do?
OW: Sir please leave or I will call the police
AH: Call the police! What have I done? I'm just talking. You cant do shit about me talking!
RL: (standing behind the Ass Hole) Hey, you need to be more respectful!
AH: Why dont you mind your f*cking business. That's what's wrong with you white people! You're always in everyone's business!
The Ass Hole kept screaming for another couple of minutes, while the Owner fished some money out of the drawer. He pulled out $150, threw it at the Ass Hole over our plastic barriers, and told him to leave.
AH: Yeah that's right give me my money, you do as your told and you'll keep your job.
AHG: And if we were smoking in the room, why didnt nobody say anything befor... keep reading on reddit ➡
The common argument why you are not allowed to shame fat people, is that it is their own choice. And this is fine, if they want to stay unhealthy, all power to them.
But, when you have a public healthcare system, now your choice to stay unhealthy, also affects other people, who now have to pay more into the system, to cover your medical expenses.
And being fat is a choice. Unless in very rare cases, if fat people would exercise more and eat right, they would not be fat.
Normally, genetics or anything like that, is just used an excuse.
Proof: there were NO fat people in the Nazi concentration camps. Why do you think this is?
I have a hint for you: It has to do with calories in, calories out.
So when someone is doing an unsocial behavior, they should be called out on it. And if you have a public healthcare system, being unhealthy by choice (difference is obviously, if it is not your choice, for example cancer) is an asocial behavior.
And this is not just my personal opinion it seems. Now with COVID, it seems the majority of people agree with me here, that if you put a strain on the healthcare system (e.g. not wearing a mask), which you could avoid, this is a very anti social behavior.
So if you shame people for not wearing a mask, it is the same to me, as shaming them for being fat.
