I was once Young and Naive also. Just what the Tobacco companies were targeting. Marketing back in the 70's was all about smoking looking cool. I thought it looked cool too. Boy was I a sucker (and still am) I've been sucking on these cancer sticks for 25 years. Let me let you in on something.

Lung Cancer is not cool!

Heart Disease is not cool!

Yellow Teeth is not cool!

Bad Breath is not cool!

Smoking around your children is not cool!

A home smelling of smoke is not cool!

Your vehicle smelling of smoke is not cool!

Spending $3000 a year on cigarettes is not cool!

Wheezing on the Tennis Court in between points is not cool!

Being out of breath during sex IS NOT COOL!

If you want to look cool buy a Sergio Tacchini Polo, flip up the collar and cruise the strip in your Dad's convertable. That my young friend is cool, but SMOKING IS NOT!

HE GREAT AMERICAN SMOKE OUT IS NOVEMBER 17TH 2005. BE THERE - BE COOL!

Another "witty" comment from the King of Cool. I've seen other people get banned from here for alot less. Maybe with any luck one of the Mods will see your "contributions" to the TT forum. Or better yet maybe one of your parents will see. Your obviously not here to use the forum for what it is for.

Maybe you didnt see these requirements when you signed on here.

Nice work racingdad, they should put your spiel on every cigarette carton.

My friend's mom just died of lung cancer. Oh why did she get lung cancer you ask? Take an educated guess. And sebastian if you want to be a smartass, try not to tell people you're Canadian.

LOL! This HAS to be a joke....

Coda 11-07-2005 01:30 AM

if smoking=cool
tennis =not cool...and neither makes sense

Nuke 11-07-2005 04:18 AM

As flamebait, I rate jon166's post as a 2. Too stupid to really stir up the anthill, I think.

gonzalocatalino 11-07-2005 04:36 AM

I was a smoker for about 12yrs...i quit months ago...and i can tell you...smoking IS NOT cool.
Only a stupid 14yo kid can think that (like me when i start smoking)

doriancito 11-07-2005 05:33 AM

my dad smokes around 5 cigarretes oer day min. i want him to stop!!!!

bluegrasser 11-07-2005 05:38 AM

Just ask your lungs if smoking is cool, me i just have one cigar a day after lunch, and that's probably one too many.

This is why I love tennis and sports in general: Because when you step onto the court, you gotta let it all hang out, there's nowhere to hide, no lies, no deception, no bullsh.
You're all there and if you aren't by not giving it your all, you'll have lost much respect. And when the scoreboard reads 2-6, 1-6 and you come shake hands with your opponent, he will not care that your ankle is hurting, or the strings on your favourite racquet broke or that you are a smoker and you get tired easily. There are always excuses...

It's not cool, but it may SEEM cool the way other "risky" behavior can appear cool. Riding a motorcycle without a helmet, bungy jumping off a bridge, rock climbing without a safty line, etc, etc - these can appear to make you look confident and cool. However, sooner or later, the odds will be against you. A single mistake can kill you quickly, or - in the case of smoking - may lead to a long slow painful death.

I smoked up to two packs a day for 20 years. I've been "clean" for about 13 years now. I still don't have the lung capacity that I SHOULD have, but other than that I was pretty lucky and, to date, have not had any medical problems from the smoke. You may be lucky too, or you may be dead by the time your my age. Most of the risk factors that lead to a short life are completely within your control. Choose wisely.

Go ahead dude, knock yourself out. Now, if you can find a way to be cool without smoking, that's even cooler than cool...

Fatmike 11-07-2005 08:31 AM

When I see a kid or a teen smoking I never think :"OMG look how cool he his"

I Think:" Stupid kid, aren't there enough information about how smoking is bad for health and how hard is it to stop"

snowpuppy 11-07-2005 08:34 AM

Smoking is so baaaaddd, which is good :)

Wrestling a 1,000 pound salt water crocodile would look pretty cool too. The major difference from smoking is that the croc will kill you faster. Smoking has to be the dumbest thing you can legally do to yourself and at the same time bother and offend almost everyone around you.
