Just wanna point out that

a) smokers don't smoke the entire cigarette, about a third goes up in smoke

b) the tar etc was concentrated in a small area (2" round) but the area of the lungs are greater therefor the smoke would not be as bad as in this video,

c) if every one gave up smoking that the tax bill for everybody would increase, the NHS would suffer (even more than under this government)

a) smokers do not smoke 1 cigarette

b) smokers do not smoke 1 cigarette

c) Treatment of smoking-related illness (cancer of various kinds, heart problems, some of them fatal, emphysema, etc etc), treatment of asthma (not least among those exposed by other's smoke, e.g. children of smoking parents), cost much more than you can imagine.

Smokers are the best example of people trying to cope with cognitive dissonance. Try to get off the hook. Everyone will thank you, including the health services. And you will have a much better life.

I agree, but I assume you're teetotal? Or is that how you know so much about cognitive dissonance?

It's now perfectly fine to judge people who chose to intoxicate their bodies by inhaling tobacco but as for those who routinely go out and get intoxicated on nice friendly taxable alcohol.. well's that's just grand. It is now so ingrained into Western culture that we have alcohol on special occasions, a drink to drown your sorrows, a drink to celebrate, and several drinks on the weekend. Glass of wine with the meal, sir? A few tins with the footie, pal? Pop a cork, it's a birthday / New Year / <insert excuse here>! The oldies are drinking their gin, the youngsters are downing their jaegerbombs. All just fine... but god look at those stinking smokers. How dare they be habituated to a different drug. Disgusting.

Oh yeh I love how we look on some countries as being strict when they have similarly sanctimonious attitudes to alcohol as we now have to tobacco etc. After all drinkers do not drink 1 drink do they? And then there's liver cirosis, alcohol related diabetes, pancreatic cancer, heart disease,etc etc not starting on the mental changes that affect friends and family. Cognitive dissonance.

But no matter, I'm sure you don't drink at all, right? If you do, try to get off the hook. The health services will thank you. And you will have a much better life.

All smokers know there's stuff hanging around in their lungs.

That demonstration was pointless though.

Smokers rarely cane a cigarette like that and they exhale the smoke so the demonstration of tar on the second filter was misleading.

Not sure how you'd do a proper demonstration of what stays in the lungs.

Next time you are around a smoker, ask her to first simply fill her mouth with smoke and then press it through a paper towel or a white cloth. Then repeat it with an inhalted puff and compare.

What does that proove? The lungs clean themselves. What if a idi a demonstartion of the crap you put into your stomaches and then showed you what was inside. It would proove nothing as the stomach would clean itself.

I have smoked 40 to 50 cigarettes a day, for 43 years and I go to a checkup every year and tell a white lie to my doctor - that I do not smoke. He compliments me on having a fine set of lungs, because I "do not smoke". I went to another Doctor about 5 years ago and told him i was a smoker and he told me that my lings were in a very serious condition and need to stop immediately, or I will not live much longer!

WHO DO YOU BELEIVE? The doctors?

OK, genius. It 'proves' that the tars and other muck produced by one cigarette can be clearly seen by this method - not so if you inhale it.

So you inhale 40 to 50 times the amount of 'crap' shown on that pad and claim that the lungs are 'self cleaning'. Do you cough up or otherwise expel the filth you pull into your lungs on a daily basis? I doubt it.

You should stop lying to your doctor and to yourself. Nobody cares if you want to poison yourself every day, but at least be secure in your ability to take responsibility for it. See your doctor, tell him the truth and then tell him to mind his own business when he lectures you on the proven hazards (as determined by the Surgeon General) of smoking. However, if you can keep kidding yourself that you're not coming to any harm, go nuts and keep kippering yourself.

By the way, you're the guy I won't stand near in public because you stink like an old ashtray. Just so you know.

What a stupid moron you are! I told you that even the doctors cannot detect any damage after 43 years of smoking and you think you know better! This is all scarmongering, because it is well known that smokers rarely need to visit the doctor and will need rare recourse to pharmaceuticals. As far as smelling like an ashtray, maybe you shoud consider the smell of a fresh drunk, or smelling of garlic. Nobody asked you to kiss them! So **** off with your stupid ass SHEEPLE views and live how you want to live - just dont tell me what I should do! ASS HOLE!

If you what to know if your lungs are healthy go for a short run and see if you start coughing? As far as smelling like an ashtray... Any non smoker can tell when a smoker walks into the room, because they stink, a lot. And not the fresh first cigarette smell either but rather a stale astray smell. People don't tell you because either they are too polite or just take it for granted that you're a smelly man.
