Ex smokers are the worst.
I'm an ex smoker and I try very hard not to do the whole "It's stupid' spiel to people, but when I see someone start a whole thread stating they want to start smoking I think...why tell us dude? Just start. Are you looking for validation or what?
The main thing that I hate is how people smoke because they think it looks cool and will make them cool in the eyes of others. There is nothing more uncool than seeing some young person puffing on a ciggie, posing for the world to see and thinking they look cool when in reality they look silly...nothing.
