World No Tobacco Day

Discussion in 'General' started by DragonMage, May 31, 2013.

  1. World No Tobacco Day is observed around the world every year on May 31. It is intended to encourage a 24-hour period of abstinence from all forms of tobacco consumption across the globe. The day is further intended to draw global attention to the widespread prevalence of tobacco use and to negative health effects, which currently lead to 5.4 million deaths worldwide annually. The member states of the World Health Organization (WHO) created World No Tobacco Day in 1987. In the past twenty years, the day has been met with both enthusiasm and resistance across the globe from governments, public health organizations, smokers, growers, and the tobacco industry.


  2. I wish people would just fuck off and not worry about what other people do with their bodies.
  3. I just rolled up a fatass blunt so fuck that noise.

  4. I already smoked a blunt, lo siento hombre 
  5. i wish the opposite... i wish people would care what others did with their bodies, and make the safe drugs legal and the terrible addictive ones illegal
    lol right? but to be far OP isn't butting in on anyone doing it personally to anyone. so its not that big of a deal. i mean tobacco is bad for you. its ok to talk about that
  7. Ahh yes, yes of course.. I am so totally not doing that today. 
    Who are you to decide what people do with their bodies though?
  9. I already bought a pack of smokes today.
  10. I dont care what others do with thier bodies unless I smell it. And if it drives up the cost of healthcare in my country. Or starts fires. Then I care.
    Ah feck off.
    I wish people wouldn't tell me what I can and can't do with my own body.
    It wouldn't drive up the healthcare cost if people weren't forced to have healthcare.
  13. I've been seeing the most ridiculous second hand smoke commercials lately..  
    I've always hated second hand smoke because I don't think there's any science behind it.
    The truth commercials are what frustrate me. Oh there's methane in cigarettes and it's also in dog poop, so cigarettes are dog poop. So fucking stupid. Methane is in a lot of stuff and the conclusions they draw are so asinine. I mean, I'm happy I haven't seen as many anti-weed ads but the fact that I have to watch propaganda ads on my tv that are based around my choices is just awful. Or even worse than those are the click it or ticket it commercials in which the government says "Do what we tell you or we'll find you!" shit is fucking creepy.

    Above the influence adds are by far the worse to me.They really love to ignore science and facts.And seat belt laws piss me off. I definitely think they should be in place for children but I think once you get a drivers license it should 100% be your choice.
    Society definitely loves to shame smokers.. Have you seen the South Park episode where they have an anti tobacco guy at their school and the dude is 300 pounds and stuffing his face with fast food. Pretty funny/sad when you think about it..
    I mean, there is the fact that you could literally become some dead weight projectile in a high speed car wreck if you aren't wearing your seatbelt. 
    How would you feel if you got in a wreck with a minivan and flew through your windshield into another car and planted your skull right into a child? ...probably wouldn't feel at all because you'd be dead, but still. :laughing: 
    I loved that episode, it was so truthful. Heart-disease/obesity is a much larger killer in the US than cigs(three times I believe......) but people just group up and pick on minorities. I'm not advocating legislation on food or health(as thats an infringement), I just wish people would be more consistent. Like if we're gonna pretend we're doing it for fucking health reasons then lets focus on what causes the most death in this country. It's just frustrating to me because almost everyone who doesn't smoke, looks down on smoking. I don't even smoke anymore, but I remember the smug look people would get on their faces when they would say things like; "You know that's bad for you, right?" Like no shit, I would often give them an angry retort asking them if they knew being too nosy was bad for them.
    So because of a .000001% chance of that happening(Has that even ever been reported? I'm too lazy to google it), an entire population is subjugated to a law they might disagree with and if they break it their money is then taken from them at gun point?
    I don't honestly know what to say either way because I can see both sides of the seat belt debate. 
    But I guess the end of it to me is that it's really easy to just put your seat belt on, so why not? I used to not wear mine all the time and then I got in a wreck that could have very easily killed me and now I always use my seat belt. It sucks to get a fine for not wearing it, but just put your seat belts on, folks. :p
