"also i'm sure one smoke won't harm you"
are you a smoker alex? if so, you must remember feeling terrible after your first cigarette.

Why?

Why would I ever be interested in smoking? Smoking kills ... and not just the smokers are affected ...

This argument can go on for ever but my position will never change. I look forward to smoking bans in my country and other countries.

Umm, pinko7

You don't know what is happening inside you .... Smoke-related damage can take time to manifest itself. Sometimes it can then be too late ...

mr guitar

you sound like tv propaganda
where everything is "can take time" "can be too late" "may cause damage" "may be harmful" "if we had stronger evidence we may use firmer words"
the risk of smoking is over-played as much as it was underplayed in ye olde days...the fact is that many people smoke constantly from 15 yoa and still live long and healthily, plus they're doing what they enjoy which should earn them respect

"i don't really wanna go into discussing my habits"

you seem a bit defensive.... anyway, my point is most people feel nauseous when they first try a cigarette since they're not used to all the toxins and chemicals in tobacco smoke.

yeah, understood

i'm not really defensive
and i purposely haven't said one way or the other if i smoke or not...because people are judgemental, and won't judge my points on the issue objectively - the same way they're probably judging mr guitar's since he is staunchly anti-smoke
