    just curious. okay, show of hands and PLEASE SPARE ME THE LECTURE.

    it's interesting the high rate of health professionals that are victims to these types of vices.

    Smoking Kills. (sorry, quick lecture)
    I don't smoke and almost nobody I know here in Southern California does. There are a few who smoke whenever they drink, but that's it. I notice that whenever I go somewhere else, there are a TON more smokers than here in Los Angeles.

    There are probably less smokers in LA because they have a hard enough time getting O2 the way it is with all the smog! <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />

    P.S. Never even tried smoking.

    there are more smokers in nyc than you can imagine. my school turns kids into smokers. a large majority of people here smoke, and they all started in college.

    i only smoke when i drink, btw.

    I used to smoke a pack a day. I quit when I went on zyban (over a year ago). I consider myself an ex-smoker, but when I go to a bar and have a beer the little devil on my shoulder usually gets me to light one right up <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" /> . So I will have a cigarette on occasion -only when I am in a bar- and I basically never go to bars so I rarely ever smoke.

    like many posters above, i only smoke when i'm at bars and i don't go out drinking all THAT often so that means i don't smoke very often.

    I have to say that at school, there are a lot of people who smoke, more than I would have expected...
    I have to admit that I used to smoke... started out social, while drinking and hanging out. It turned into more last semester, but then second sememster I slowly reduced it and quit once i got into med school. I just don't want to be THAT doctor who smokes.... God help me get thru medical school if other med students are smoking.
     
  13. I thought he was talking about marijuana...

    oh anyway...

    shouldn't this be in the lounge?

    btw, am I the only one who can't stand being next to someone who smokes? gosh they REEEEEEEEK so bad that I cough...

    I would be so uncomfortable going to a physician who reeks of tobacco....it's like going to a fat nutritionist for advice? :confused:

    what's the point of going and geting advice when pple don't take care of themselves :D

    No smoking here, but a good number of my friends do. All of them started in college, long after they should have known better. Oh well.
     
  15. scooby, that's what i was wondering... when i saw the topic, i thought it was about marijuana. who the hell cares whether or not someone smokes cigarettes. BORING. anybody here do anything "harder?"
