Granted, we would need about 10 shots of Bacardi 151 to even consider hitting on either twin, but you get to see a definitive side-by-side look at what smoking does to you. It's not like those posters we saw as kids about what your lungs look like when you smoke. I don't think that dissuaded anyone. No one cares about what they can't see. Now, I know we should all marry for personality and compatibility, but there is not one guy that I know who wants their wife to age 10 years faster.
For guys, the effects are compounded - decreased fertility, reduced athletic performance (meaning your sexual stamina is going to get worse and worse - which in my case, can't happen as I only have 3 minutes to begin with), bad skin, bad breath, male pattern baldness... and that's not to mention the GREATER risk of cancers. Read a list here of all the things that you subject yourself to just for a habit you started to "look cool."
I hesitated in posting this, because I do know a fair number of smokers - but I will tell you that I have always been concerned for their health and well-being because of it (plus, I don't want to hang out with ugly people). I may not mention it, because the SVB has a reputation for public-drunkeness and irresponsibility, but I do care. I have a cousin who recently started smoking and it bothers me because I love him. Please, everyone, you don't need a smoke just to 'kick it' - and no one thinks you look cooler. For your health's sake and for those you love, make an attempt to put down that smoke and live a few years longer and a lot of years healthier.
I love you... and not in a drunken way. But in real life.
