Smoking - is it cool or not?

 
#1 Smoking - is it cool or not?
29/03/2007 11:50

rebel rebel

Hello.

I smoke, I know it's bad for me but then so is all the caffeine I consume, the booze I drink, the lack of sleep I get. That's not what we're discussing - so please don't start.

I want to know if people still think smoking is cool. And if so, why?

Or do you think that having the odd cig break and smelling a little like a bombfire gets you marked down in this highly competitive industry?

aye to rebel rebel (#1)

there's nothing cooler. A recent poll showed that women still place it as the number one factor which attracts them to males. It's seen as a bad boy thing and women just can't help themselves with the bad boys. So spark one up, be cool and watch the women come running.

Vespa. Sunglasses. Filterless cigarettes. Some sort of European road trip.

It doesn't get any cooler.

Ex to James Dean (#7)

One thing not smoking gives you is a clear head to think thru problems without having to rush out for a cig to "think clearly"

Bloomberg to Ex (#8)

In Bloomberg news today:

Smokers take more sick leave than regular employees 11 compared to average 7.

Employers view smokers as the bad type to employ.

Of course getting laid is a completely different matter, But nevertheless I think women these days find a guy to be tough when he says he was a smoker and has no quit, shows confidence and strength.....Women reading this board, you agree ?

a malboro a day to Bloomberg (#9)

Huddling under a shelter when it's raining to get your nicotine fix - no

Crisp suit, sunglasses, shirt, no tie, sunshine, softpack cigarettes, zippo lighter - yes

Dawn to a malboro a day (#10)

Smoking is only cool when you smoke menthols. Otherwise it's hot and/or schmokin'...

Seriously though, smoking doesn't go down well in very many workplaces these days - not just professional services. I know a few people who I work with who have the odd cigarette after eating or when we go for drinks, but they're female. There is still a slightly more forgiving attitude towards young women smoking, either because it's so culturally established as a way to keep off the weight, or because there is some erotic connection at the back of some people's minds.

Smelling like a bomfire is rustic and earthy.

Smelling like an ashtray is just rude in an open plan office.

Doro to rebel rebel (#1)

Thank God I got rid of this dirt, smoking is an addiction and selfbetrayal all the way! There is nothing good with it and burning your hard earned money is just as stupid and also selfbetrayal, really when you smoke you do not calm down but get even more nervous and shaky - this is selfbetrayal, it stinks, and your mouth becomes a smell like an ashtray! who likes to kiss an ashtray?

sparky to Tobias (#14)

Totally cool, 100%. Perhaps not brilliant for one's health but that's the individual's lookout. Just returned from a visit to Scotland where said practice is banned in pubs. Pubs now lifeless souless places..look out London for July

Smokin to schmokin! (#17)

Shooting dirty looks at dirty smokers - pretty cool (they all get it)...

Taunting them with 'when smokers rates of National Insurance come in' - good fun too...
