    I'm sick of all the holier than thou Politically correct "advice" here.

    OP, you have every right to pick up smoking. If you feel cool smoking, nobody has the right to tell you not to.

    You have the freedom here in America do decide for yourself how to live your life.

    As somebody who is heavily invested in tobacco companies, I would like to personally thank you for choosing to smoke. It is a mature and considered decision, one that is reflective of your pedigree.

    Remember folks, Corporations are people too and they need to make money.

    If people have to die so that corporation may live, I'm all for it.

    Choose Pro-corporate Life.

    . . . I agree with the general comments above that when a person sees a younger person smoking, the older person thinks, "wow! stupid. That kid's been barraged with scientific evidence about the social negatives and health negatives of smoking. . . and yet is dumb enough to want to do it. There are idiots/suckers born every day, I guess."

    ... one also wonders, seeing the number of concerned responses here, what if the OP had said instead that he wanted to get into pot smoking. . . how many TW posters would also be jumping on him for making a bad decision?

    Well, smoking wouldn't take the health toll it does in reality if it weren't so addictive. I mean, how many 1/50 of a pack per day cigarette smokers are there? Essentially zero.

    If you are going to smoke, perhaps to look cool, you should definitely not smoke cigarettes. Try cigars. Way better for you and way cooler looking.

    I'll be honest when I was younger, the idea of smoking cigarettes was appealing. Now, I occasionally smoke a cigar (when I mean occasionally I mean maybe once a year, nothing too much). I only do it if my friends and I are in the mood to smoke a few. Otherwise, I have nothing against people smoking cigarettes, I just never tried them because I knew I would get addicted.
