    If you do smoke, could you explain why?
    If you don't smoke, how do you feel or think about smokers and smoking?
    Anyone, how do you feel about tobacco tax increases without an increase in alcohol tax?

    I don't know if this is accurate, but if it is, INTPs are the type most likely to smoke.

    I don't. My mom was a smoker until I was about 12. She quit, and even though in just about every other aspect of life she was about as lenient as moms come, she was absolutely adamant I don't start smoking. Important, since I was surrounded by smokers all day.

    I have no ill will towards smokers, but I don't think it's a particularly intelligent habit to pick up, given that it's both a steady drain on your finances and likely to end with massive health problems. I don't care if you do it, though. It's your life.

    I have no opinion on tobacco or alcohol taxes.

    I don't smoke because I see no point in doing so.

    The only pleasure one derives from smoking is the satisfaction one gets from doing it once the withdrawal symtoms start to show up. Which is a kind of fucked up motivation.

    That combined with the health issue, the addiction and the cost of smoking makes it such a draining activity.

    When it comes to smokers I don't mind them as long as they don't bother me. If a person decides to light one up in the presence of children or anyone who could easily be affected by second hand smoking I will tell them to please do it elsewhere. If I'm outside with a person and they ask me if it's ok to smoke I usually say yes. Even though I'm an asthmatic and hate the smell, if I stand in the right wind direction and 1.5 meters away it doesn't bother me.

    Essentially I won't be a dick about it unless the smoker is a dick about it.

    I knew I should have been specific that I wasn't talking about the devil's lettuce.

    Do you think INTPs would be less or more likely to smoke?
    more likely

    If you do smoke, could you explain why?
    I smoke because I'm addict. I want to be addict. I want to smoke. I love being drained financially and I'm looking forward to dying with a disease because of it. I even quit drinking, to make sure all my resources go to smoke. Food is on the agenda too.

    If you don't smoke, how do you feel or think about smokers and smoking?
    --
    Since I smoke, how do I feel about non-smokers... hmmm., most are ok, except the ones complaining about smokers using unreasonable arguments. Not-anymore-smokers are even worse often.

    Anyone, how do you feel about tobacco tax increases without an increase in alcohol tax?
    I'd like to have more taxes on everything which is unhealthy. Fastest way to make the current tax system blow itself up and cause more criminality and less freedom.

    I can't see a reason why. On one occassion (some stupid paternalist law passed) I felt like I would smoke a piece of American Spirit as a symbol of rebellion. But the mental projection was enough.

    No, makes no sense to me. Like creating addiction for sake of addiction.

    Their bussiness unless it's intrusive.

    No feelings. They could call it environmental tax, lol.

    I used to smoke like a chimney, but one of my exes got me to switch to vaping a couple years ago, and I've just kinda stuck with that. Even though it's objectively not nearly as cool.

    Nicotine is a good crutch for dealing with stress and/or anxiety... it's pretty handy to be able to trigger the release of dopamine on a whim.

    I'm glad you mentioned how it can be enjoyable.

    I like smoke, and I like the idea of breathing it, but I don't want to drain myself financially and I don't want to be manipulated by a chemical other than by my body's hormonal whims. and I don't want to slowly inflict physical damage. Vapes have seemed pretty attractive for this reason... but I'm waiting for more research into its pros and cons.
