Alcoholism destroys lives and families, and in some families seemingly everyone is an alcoholic. If I and my uncle and my brothers and my grandparents were all alcoholics, would it be rational argumentation to say that therefore all other people can not drink in a responsible fashion?

That argument doesn't hold water, you have to do better than that. There's responsible drinking. I've never heard of responsible smoking, because there really is no such thing. People can drink without becoming alcoholics. All smokers are addicted to nicotine. Of course you get those who say they smoke "socially", but those people usually do it to fit in.

This forum is hilarious. The smokers/those who support smoking get viciously angry in these smoking threads saying that smoking isn't really that bad for you(again, hilarious), meanwhile, the same people are calling for soy milk to be banned? Is this a joke? Gay sex kills more people than smoking? I don't have gay men throwing their AIDS infested bodily fluids on me when I go to a bar, but, I do have to put up with smoke. Oh that's right, it's YOUR right, and I should go somewhere else, because smokers' rights come first.

If you want to see the effects of smoking first-hand, look in the mirror people. You look OLD, you have gum disease(yes, even if you brush), and your teeth are disgusting. Not to mention that involuntary upbringing of brown phlegm. Oh no, that's not unhealthy at all! *sarcasm* My personal fave is the smokers' cough, a real phlegm special. So attractive! Yeah, and that smokers' voice is real hot. Husbands love to feel like they're waking up beside another man. You may not have all these symptoms now, but believe me, you will, but you already know that.

Smokers can soothe their guilty consciences however they like, but don't propagandize everyone else and their children, and quit making non-smokers and those of use who care about our health and the health of our children out to be the bad guys.

"abusus non tollit usum" Abuse is no argument against proper use.

If I drive too fast, I can get ticketed and am dangerous to others on the road, but if I drive at a safe speed there is not as much danger.

If I drink a gallon of whiskey a day I could be big problem, but if I drink a casual glass of wine, I might be a little thoughtful. Everything must be exercised in proper porportion, including alcohol and baccy.
