I suggest not smoking. You just said you have a wife and a kid... So you have something to live for.
Plus, you should set a better example for your kid. Kids need role models; watching you throw money away on a habit that will mostly likely kill you and will certainly shorten your life isn't the best precedent to set.

I'm not trying to be a dick, but...
Never met my dad's dad. Smoker.
Never met my mom's dad. Smoker.
One of my uncles died when I was probably 12 (he wasn't 60 yet). He never met his grandkids. Smoker.
I have a cousin who's currently dying slowly of cancer. Smoker.

Everybody dies, for sure. And not smoking won't guarantee that you'll meet your grandkids (you have a kid; it stands to reason that they will someday procreate), but it sure as hell improves your odds.

If you're in your low 30's and already can't stand your wife then you married the wrong person. Regardless of the situation with one's wife, kids are a good reason to stick around.

You might as well roll your own cigars and sprinkle a little bit of angel dust in them for added potency

That is the obvious answer to that situation. I was just poking fun at the old stigma that every couple hates each other when they are married.

Without a doubt. The kids are always a great thing to live for. The whole you have a wife so you have something to live for thing was just a little stab at fun though.

What guarantee is there that you can quit again? If you need to take the edge off try some narcotics. If you have a problem, there's rehab!!! Or you can light up a cigarette and pay a hypnotherapist to help you quit.

I think smokers are now less popular than child molesters.

I quit on Jan 1st, 2001. Started back up about six years later. I recently quit again after smoking for nearly eight years again. I say don't smoke the cigs. Smoke the MJ. It's safer.

Study Finds No Cancer-Marijuana Connection

By Marc Kaufman
Washington Post Staff Writer
Friday, May 26, 2006
The largest study of its kind has unexpectedly concluded that smoking marijuana, even regularly and heavily, does not lead to lung cancer.

The new findings "were against our expectations," said Donald Tashkin of the University of California at Los Angeles, a pulmonologist who has studied marijuana for 30 years.

"We hypothesized that there would be a positive association between marijuana use and lung cancer, and that the association would be more positive with heavier use," he said. "What we found instead was no association at all, and even a suggestion of some protective effect."

Federal health and drug enforcement officials have widely used Tashkin's previous work on marijuana to make the case that the drug is dangerous. Tashkin said that while he still believes marijuana is potentially harmful, its cancer-causing effects appear to be of less concern than previously thought.

Earlier work established that marijuana does contain cancer-causing chemicals as potentially harmful as those in tobacco, he said. However, marijuana also contains the chemical THC, which he said may kill aging cells and keep them from becoming cancerous.

Tashkin's study, funded by the National Institutes of Health's National Institute on Drug Abuse, involved 1,200 people in Los Angeles who had lung, neck or head cancer and an additional 1,040 people without cancer matched by age, sex and neighborhood.

They were all asked about their lifetime use of marijuana, tobacco and alcohol. The heaviest marijuana smokers had lighted up more than 22,000 times, while moderately heavy usage was defined as smoking 11,000 to 22,000 marijuana cigarettes. Tashkin found that even the very heavy marijuana smokers showed no increased incidence of the three cancers studied.

"This is the largest case-control study ever done, and everyone had to fill out a very extensive questionnaire about marijuana use," he said. "Bias can creep into any research, but we controlled for as many confounding factors as we could, and so I believe these results have real meaning."

Tashkin's group at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA had hypothesized that marijuana would raise the risk of cancer on the basis of earlier small human studies, lab studies of animals, and the fact that marijuana users inhale more deeply and generally hold smoke in their lungs longer than tobacco smokers -- exposing them to the dangerous chemicals for a longer time. In addition, Tashkin said, previous studies found that marijuana tar has 50 percent higher concentrations of chemicals linked to cancer than tobacco cigarette tar.

While no association between marijuana smoking and cancer was found, the study findings, presented to the American Thoracic Society International Conference this week, did find a 20-fold increase in lung cancer among people who smoked two or more packs of cigarettes a day.

The study was limited to people younger than 60 because those older than that were generally not exposed to marijuana in their youth, when it is most often tried.

At least child molesters have to register and the rest of us know where they live. It's fun to check the registry and throw toilet paper on their lawns.

Smokers don't have to register so it's hard to keep tabs on them. Someone could be smoking in a car and releasing into the air second hand smoke. I think the regulations are a little out of hand. Just walking around town, a whiff of cigarette smoke probably isn't even the worst thing that someone smells.
