Re: The new hookah danger, high CO levels...
I have only this to say:
I smoke not because I think it's not hurting me, I smoke because I enjoy it.
We're not ignorant, we know what this, and other "bad" habits are doing and could do to us, we still partake because to us, enjoying a (potentially) shorter life makes more sense than not enjoying a (potentially) longer one.
We know what we're doing, and those that don't partake shouldn't have any rite to try and stop us. Showing me numbers or statistics isn't going to make me want to smoke any less, and if someone is so weak in their opinion that they can be made to change their mind because of a set of biased statistics, they've got some serious reconsidering to do.
That's just what I think.
