I'm not really sure this is really as compelling of an argument as people think. Grown Up smokers tell kids not to smoke....so why do they smoke?

Because adults do a lot of things they tell kids not to do.

I also like to get drunk on the weekends. I wouldn't tell a five year old to do it. I would mention the reasons not to do it, but I wouldn't mention how awesome it is and why I do it.

If a five year old asked me to borrow a condom, I wouldn't be like, 'Hell yeah Bro!', even though I love having sex. Sex is great, but that doesn't mean it's something for children. Same with porn.

Same with lots of things. I wouldn't encourage a seven year old to fry bacon by himself, or drive a car, or iron a shirt - I'd tell him the reasons not to do them, and that it is something he can decide to do when he's older.

There's benefits to being considered a freak.

Nobody peer pressured me into smoking, because nobody wanted to hang out with me.

And not a single one of them agreed to light up for either kid.

Assholes, man.

My favorite thing about the smoking ads is how popular the second hand smoking ads were a few years ago. They were played on every channel on TV and second hand smoke was a big deal. Then, they found out that the doctor who did that study had falsified results and was completely discredited. Now we don't see a single second hand smoking ad. Get ******* rekt non-smokers. I've never smoked a cigarette a day in my life but I'd rather hang out with smokers than people who complain about smoking.

Um, what? Are you mistaking this with the autism / vaccine thing or just trolling? Here is a compilation of dozens of studies:

www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK44330/

Here is just one snippet from some of the meta-analyses:
"They obtained a RR of 1.20 (95 percent CI, 1.12–1.29) for lung cancer risk among nonsmoking women with exposure to secondhand smoke..."

This is just information I wanted to share but a seriously good chunk (above 95%) of all the harmful compounds in cigarettes never actually enter the body. Because a cigarette burns of course, and if you burn any organic compound it'll be turned into carbon monoxide/dioxide and water. In fact half of the compounds that are listed as dangerous actually end up leaving the cigarette before they're on the shelf (for example Hydrogen cyanide which boils at 26 celcius, cigarettes are made and tobacco is grown in hot countries) but companies have to put them on the box for the same reasons we have to put "contains nuts" on a packet of peanuts - for legal protection.

While the smoker does indeed take in a large amount of carbon monoxide; it only bonds to the haem group of red blood cells in the same way oxygen does; via ligand bonding. The carbon monoxide levels in the blood simple cause respiration rate to increase which is why heart rate commonly increases when smoking - more respiration, more ammonia produced - ammonia accepts the carbon monoxide to form urea which is why, if you are a smoker you'll notice this, pee becomes more yellow.

It's the 5% or so left which will dish out damage but even then it'll only dish out said damage if you smoke a ******** like a ******* idiot, if you have underdeveloped lungs or you've been doing it for a while with little exercise.

As a smoker myself I actually think that yes, it's a bad habit; without a doubt. But it's even worse if you don't know how everything goes down. Misinformation is more deadly than not having any information.

What if they refuse to help the kid because they don't want them on the same path? I know this is supposed to be hypocrisy, but think of why they'd say it. Just because you choose something awful for yourself and become addicted doesn't mean you can't be against it. My stepdad loathed smoking, but he had a long while where he couldn't give it up.

Doesn't mean he can't call it dangerous or bad, would you say an alcoholic can't say drinking too much is a bad thing? Sure they may be a hypocrite to you, but they've already hit rock bottom and they know that it would be wrong to enable a kid to do that. These smokers are hurting themselves, but enabling the kid to smoke would mean hurting others.

TLDR: These smokers may know the dangers and refuse to enable others to smoke because they don't want others to follow.

My dad told me he quit smoking because of me, when I was younger I read those warnings on the cigarette pack and asked him "If smoking kills why do you smoke?" and he just stopped smoking without any help, which surprised me because he used to smoke a lot.
