We all know that smoking is both disgusting and ridiculously toxic, yet people have been and continue to be attracted to this dirty habit. Could this have something to do with the ‘cool’ factor? Can smoking look hot?
For the record, I was just holding that cigarette for the smoker, but I have to say, it becomes me. Joking aside, I can’t stand cigarettes, but I can’t deny that some people look sexy with one in their hand.
Do you agree or disagree? Can smoking look cool? Do you think this is a reason people continue to smoke despite full knowledge of its dangers?
I don't think it can look any more unattractive. I find it one of the biggest turn offs in anyone. There is nothing cool looking about it, in my opinion. You know, I just went to post a letter. On the way to the post box I saw a grown man with a boy. The man was smoking. On the return home I saw them still standing in the middle of the road. This time the boy - who looked about 11 - was the one with the cigarette and smoking. He did not look cool. He looked like no one gave a damn about his health, and that he was going to end up as a juvenile delinquent.
In the above photo, I guess it does, It just looks a waste of money, to me, personally,
& it stinks when 1 have to walk past the smoker!
All I can think of, as I walk past smokers is: “CANCER?’, but that’s not really answering your question, sorry!
It's a funny thing . . . men in romantic novels are written as cool . ."drawing back on a cheroot" or "taking a last drag on his stogie" but women are written, for the large part, as sexually up for anything with a cigarette in their hand. I think RP in the photo above looks silly. My dad smoked, I never have and neither have my two siblings. My other half gave it up nearly ten years ago, thank heaven!
I agree with Vee, in that it can look cool with some people in some circumstances, but looks ain't everything and I'd rather be uncool and well, spending time with my family, than wastes loads of money looking cool on a couple of occasions just to spend time in hospital (away from my family) on the way to a slow, untimely, and painful death - end of story.
