Warning: Cigarettes are Addictive!

I always liked that Obama admitted to being a casual smoker. That told me that "he gets it."...

Ya see the smoke-nazi's were pushing to have graphic images of dead people and sick babies on the package of cigarettes, it was going to cover most of the cigarette pack and leave little room for the word "marlboro". I found it highly disturbing and unfair to the tobacco companies when I first heard about the intention.

Those people are stupid. I wouldn't pitch a fit if they wanted a plain ole skull and crossbones and even that's overkill.

I find it weird when I travel though. In Cali you pretty much can't smoke in-doors. (Damn near not even in your house if you live an apartment) Showed up in Washington for work and when I travel I eat out for obvious reasons. Walked in and was asked "smoking or non?". Since they outlawed that in California when I was like seven the question didn't make sense. I must have stood there for thirty seconds trying not to look like an idiot because I had no f'ing clue what he was asking.

Oh thats funny! Yea, not even a year ago smoking was still allowed in bars, not anymore though...

Have yet to see those packages, even though I did hear about them. People who want to smoke will still buy them, no matter the cost and no matter the picture on the package (if they can afford them). I'm fast becoming one of the latter who can't afford them.

But if I was the president and under stress, I sure would love a quick sneaky light-up now and then.

You didn't see'em wombie cause they dont exist yet, they were supose to come out in 09 I think and something didn't get approved (politics) and now its come out that they were denied saying its unconstitutional. So I dont think they will ever be made. : ) We pretty much exclusively roll our own these days. Im considering doing the E Cigarette, its cheaper and I can get my nicotine anywhere I want...but I tried one of the cheaper ones and I hated it, I felt like I was trying to suck a nut through a straw to get a decent drag and then it didnt taste at all like a cigarette...I know some people think that they taste bad, but ilove getting that throaty harsh hit of all those yummy chemicals and poisons.... : / ... I felt like I was just breathing in water vapor... Ive done a bit of research though and suposedly they have improved a lot sense I tried them... im thinking about it....wish I could try it for free.

"I felt like I was trying to suck a nut through a straw to get a decent drag and then it didnt taste at all like a cigarette..."

That cracked me up!

I've got three or four half-smoked packs lying around (for emergencies) of the cheaper cigs with nothing but air---and it contradicts my post about bargain shopping! Ha..... I have to feel that poison in the back of my throat, too!
