My body, My choice??????

From watching some t.v. today, I have about had it of the commercials against the tabacco companies!

Why do we not have the same for the alcohol companies? Get this.........

Alcohol---Alcohol-impaired driving is one of America's most commonly committed and deadliest crimes. In 2004, 42,639 people died on our Nation's roadways.

So why don't the families of people who were wrongly killed by a drunk drive, go after the alcohol compainies, like they do the tabacco companies?

I will tell you why alcohol gets away with it more then cigarette smokers.

Cause it is socially more acceptable! Everyone gets drunk! Have ya ever heard someone say they do not want to kiss a smoker cause they stink? Have ya ever smelt yourself after a night of drinking? And people always say "I don't want to meet a smoker" Well I don't want to meet a drunk!

And yeah, the little scrawny bitch puking in a toilet after a night of drinking is way more attractive then me with a smoke in hand!!!!

Come on, I smoke and I am slowly killing myself! People who drink, get drunk, and drive and kill families on the road,are taking someone elses life, and brutally!

OOOOOOOOO and the second hand smoke thing, Give me a fucking break! Cigarette smoke is the only thing polluting our air? You anti smoking people, thinking about it the next time you go to start your car, on your way to the bar to get drunk!

I had a friend whos husband died with a six pack of beer between his legs as he ran head on into a young couple on their way to prom. Luckly the young kids lived. I did not feel sorry for him.

So you crack open another beer, I will light another smoke, and you get off my ass!

I did tell my husband, "You stop drinking and I will stop smoking" I bet it will never happen!

If cigaretts are bad for us then why:

1, you can buy then way earlyer than alcohol 16 vs 18 here in the UK

2, Trust in the people you vote in as if its bad they would ban it.

1. Because alcohol has a much stronger lobby than tobacco. That's why you still see commercials for it on tv, and why it's still an acceptable billboard to have up at major sporting events. When's the last time you saw a Marlboro billboard at a baseball or football game?

2. Because alcohol means M-O-N-E-Y. It's a multi-billion dollar per year industry. Again, commercials, sponsorship of sporting events (that FAMILIES attend) - just look at the Superbowl advertising. Anybody want a cold Bud?

3. It's "Cool" to drink...just think about the ads for Baileys, Southern Comfort, Jack Daniels (yuck) - all of the booze commercials, for that matter. They all depict some "cool" people having a great time.

I'm a smoker - have been since I was 18. I remember my first job at a law office. I was a receptionist/secretary, and I was smoking at my desk. Can you believe that shit? LOL I even set my trash can on fire one day after emptying my ashtray into it. LMAO Now, you can't even walk down the sidewalk with a lit butt without getting dirty looks from the non-smokers. It pisses me off. Up here in Taxachusetts, in my lovely little town, there's been a ban on smoking in public places for approximately 5 years now, I think. No smoking in restaurants, bars (have ya ever tried getting drunk and not being able to smoke? lol ), etc. They even got rid of the self-contained smoking room at the friggin airport, AND you can only smoke in designated areas OUTSIDE the airport. Kiss my ass! I'm outside and it's a free country!

That's one of the many reasons I love the Caribbean - you can smoke ANYWHERE you want to. lol Oh, AND, the butts are only $10 per carton!

Ugh. I need a cigarette! lol

With that said I think I'll go get another beer and see if I still have a cuban cigar stashed away so the feds can't get to it.... anyone got a light... there is just something about naked women, hot tubs, beer and cigars.
Remember... Altrias (Phillip Morris) stock is up >

I've been smokeing for 51 years.
I live in Washington and they just past a law In Washington no smoking in any public place and you have to be 25 feet from any door.

Its not just drunk drivers that die from alcohol some people over dose,Fall while drunk and kill them selfs.

A lot of Drunks Beat the wife and kids, but I guess that is alright.

Just pisses me off that they pick on smokers and not drunks.

oldman1776-- wELL I THINK THE REASON IS, MOST OF OUR LAW MAKERS ARE DRUNKS. EVERY BIG PARTY HAS ALCOHOL! EVEN THE PRESIDENT CAN'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT IT CAUSE HE DRINKS IT. NO BODY WANTS TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT, CAUSE THE WORLD IS ONE BIG AA MEETING!

Have you been to NYC since they passed the ban on smoking in bars? At 2 am there are more people on the sidewalks than inside.

What gets me is that even if you wanted to declare your place of business "smoking only", and hired only smokers, they wouldn't let you.

Yes, it's bad for me. Yes, I should quit. Yes, you should mind your own fucking business and let me enjoy my own vices.
