    The scientific study that shows the danger of second hand smoke via
    usenet will be about as objective as the study that showed the danger of
    second hand smoking...

    I don't understand the attitude myself. If you don't like secondhand /
    passive smoking, try the firsthand / active variety of smoking. It is way
    way more satisfying.

    Naaa! Hated the angst and rotten feeling I got whenever I hadn't had a
    fag for a while. That's the trouble with nicotine addition, it doesn't
    make you feel better, it just stops you feeling worse.

    Better to avoid it in the first place.

    Aww, c'mon man. I've been given up eight months now after smoking for over
    25 years. After the day I've had today your comment makes me want to head
    off to Foodtown and grab a pack, they're open 24/7 here.

    Ain't it the truth! Been wrestling the demon for the last ten days
    now...for the umpteenth time. At least with this new law, I won't be
    tempted in public places to bum a fag.

    If you chaps are smoking, where will the smoke come out of my computer?
    I can't drop ash on my keyboard, it might annoy my resident spider!
    Now, if cigarette smoke could smoke out all the spam......... Not to worry,
    xtra goes a great job with that.

    Seriously, I've never smoked, but I've been passive smoking for 75 years
    with no problems.

    I don't think this change has been properly thought through. Now all the
    wierdos will leave the newsgroups and go to the pub instead.

    Whether this is a good or bad thing depends on whether you hang out
    more in the pub or on the NGs.

    Yeah it is the worst addiction to break. Worse than heroin.

    I asked my specialist doctor if I should give up smoking.
    He replied "Warwick, many patients ask me 'If I give up smoking will I live
    longer?'. I always reply 'No, but it might feel like it'".

    He is an amusing man, and it might seem like crazy advice, but all his
    patients have their life threatened. So I guess the message was that the
    condition he was treating is a lot more serious risk than smoking poses.
    Since we don't know how much time you have left, you might as well enjoy
    what you have.
    Now the old bugger has cured me I am going to have to re address this
    smoking issue. I keep putting it off tho:)
