There is a Red Robin in Washington County right before the I-70 interchange.

I think Red Robin is more of a West/Pacific Northwest kinda thing - we have a slew of them out here.

I never saw any of those in Denver or Colorado Springs when I was out there 2 summers ago.

For those who know the area, I am referring to the Old Town Buffet in Southland. Pittsburgh is a blue-collar once very prominent mill town and a lot of the retired steelworkers smoke. The best way for us smokers to protest this ban is not by pulling silly stunts (I was joking by the way - jail and I would not mix well) but by voicing our disapproval at the voting booths when these hypocrites are up for re-election.

Quit being so damned judgmental Chrono. Everyone has vices - smoking is mine and all PA non-smokers benefit from the money I give the state.

For those youngsters who just say no to smoking - I commend you. It was pretty easy when I was your age to buy a pack of smokes - no one checked ID or really cared. I wish I had never started, but the fact remains I did and I can admit that I am addicted to the nicotine. Stay strong and keep on saying NO
!
That is good for you that you can even admit to yourself that you are addicted to ciggerettes. Like it muist be hard to admit that to yourself.
Have you ever tried quitting ?
What does it feel like to be addicted to cigarettes?
what happenes if you dont have one for a while?
When did you start smoking?

No - it isn't hard for me to admit it to myself, verks - it's just a fact and I'm not embarrassed about it at all. I wish I had never started, but I did. Everyone has bad habits - smoking happens to be mine.

I've actually quit at least 6 times that I can remember. I'm pretty much a stress smoker. When I've had stressful times in my life, I reach for the cigs. Nicotine stimulates adrenalin and as we all know, a rush of adrenalin makes us feel good. Not a "high" like alcohol or pot, but more of a "peaceful" feeling. Nicotine is also very addictive, as I found out in my late teens when I became a pretty regular smoker while attending college. Nicotine withdrawal produces a myriad of symptoms - everyone's symptoms are different, but when I've quit before, I went through the shakes, terrible headaches and irritability.

I had my first ciggy when I was 13 - I did it because it was the "in" thing to do back in the 70's and all of my friends smoked because we all felt it was "cool". If I had known then what I know now, I never would have smoked the first one. I'm hooked on them and I'll probably quit a few more times and start up again until one day, I use every ounce of willpower inside of me to kick the habit/addiction for good. At this point in my life, I'm just not ready.

Keep saying NO, verks - I'm really happy that you and the other youngsters here have much greater resolve and willpower than I had at your age.

There is also nothing good about alcohol....

- money
- Liver disease, including cancer
- Cardiomyopathy
- Gout
- Heartburn
- Hepatoma
- Hypertension
- Pancreatic cancer
- Pancreatitis
- Peptic Ulcer
- Pneumonia
- Scurvy
- Stomach cancer
- Subdural hematoma
- Transient Ischemic Attack (mini-stroke for those who aren't familiar with that medical term)
- Tuberculosis

---- Innocent deaths of thousands upon thousands of unsuspecting, innocent victims of drunk driviers every single year.
Ahhh...but in MODERATION... alcohol raises the HDL levels and helps stop clots in the arteries.

(Funny me saying this, I am a tee-totaler... but enjoy a good pipe or cigar, though I have not smoked one in quite sometime as I am in California and would be branded as an evil pastor for having one).

In response to the article. Wow....

This is going to sound harsh... and I apologize up front.
__________________________________________________ ______

Why in the WORLD is the WHO funding and running an anti-smoking campaign? It is the dumbest thing I have heard... I have the same thoughts about that as I do about AIDS...

Diseases and deaths which come PRIMARILY because of personal decisions.....

SHould be put LAST on any funding by any government for research or prevention.

Caveat.... Money SHOULD be spent for education, but once the education is done, it is the RESPONSIBILITY of the person to make the choice.


How many more people die from breast cancer, heart attacks (even "healthy People"), Cancers which are NOT linked to personal choice, and diseases like typhoid and others that are stoppable... because money is being funneled away for stupid anti smoking campaigns... or to find cures for politically correct diseases.

If I had two people laying at my feet dying... and only one of them could be saved, I would take care of the one that ended up there through no decision making process of thier own.

Sure, it is very sad about the other... but it is MORE sad about those who are dying from CURABLE diseases because too much money is being spent on cures for diseases and things like cigarettes because it is the politically correct thing to do, even though they are PRIMARILY choice based diseases.

And no, they don't CHOOSE to get a disease... but they DO CHOOSE to expose themselves to diseases by their actions.

I would rather take care of the ones that get diseases NOT through a personal decision first...
