Who on Earth is stupid enough to start smoking in 2019?I don't understand how smokers haven't all died off by now.
Not what I said or believe
I don’t think it’s quite like “any other disease” as it’s got significant psychological and behavioral componentsIt's one of the things, but it also often takes medications, counselling, a support system and other factors that many people lack. It's like saying the cure to any other disease is just "willpower"....well yeah, it's important to have willpower, but often you need medical assistance to deal with illnesses such as addiction. So again...maybe rethink your judgemental attitude.
A smoker kiss is the best thing I've tasted though. I do agree with the other assessment.
a buzz? lol.. there is no real buzz. Just our brain sighing in relief.
Not really. t increases the heart-rate. Your addicted brain is just nagging until it gets its fix
Yeah because it's addictive.
To be fair it is frustrating when people are constantly not at their desk for smoke breaks when you need to get shit done. I don't want my time wasted by someone wasting their time.
I think your choice of words here are poor.You make it sound simple or easy to quit. As an addict myself, its not. And alcohol is no pretty princess on your health either.
I hear you, I think my bad morning made me cop an attitude and that’s my bad judging by the replies I’m getting. Not sure if I should edit it down or preserve it as is, but apologies.
Well, they are talking about the companies health profile and has made some other comments in the past. Personally, I don't care if someone smokes. I've used it to my advantage in the past.
They sit out there wasting paid hours and lowering the health profile of our company, jacking up everyone’s insurance.
It’s probably allowed just because one of the owners smokes. He sits out there smoking all day almost.
The woman at the next cubicle is in sales and comes back inside and wheezes on the phone. She tries laughing but it’s more of an out of breath sound.
This other lady had surgery so she said she quit smoking for that to heal better. She failed. Saw her smoking the week she came back after surgery.
ill quote you one more time here OP, I know you responded already and I hope it was just a bad mood like you said. I'm just making a point that most people use there breaks to smoke and I highly doubt the 5-whatever amount of smokers on your insurance are jacking it up like ReAxion said.smokers get basically guaranteed breaks. solidarity with workers.
hey OP, health insurance companies are raking in record profits quarter after quarter, year after year, while smoking rates are going down, and you're blaming smokers for rising healthcare costs? get a fucking clue.
Addiction is a part of it, but nicotine is a stimulant, people smoke because they do feel a short term benefit. I’m not saying that smoking is good, just that the Allen Carr line of thinking isn’t scientific.
