    Heres a condom. I figured since youre acting like a dick, you should dress like one too.

    derek
    100% ditto that
    plus I associate smoking with too many other things I like, like good beer, good wine, good coffee, etc, etc.

    edit: although, I plan on quitting again on New Years.. hopefully I can manage another couple of year long quit...

    But when we ride very fast motorcycles, we ride with immaculate sanity. We might abuse a substance here and there, but only when it's right. The final measure of any rider's skill is the inverse ratio of his preferred Traveling Speed to the number of bad scars on his body. It is that simple: If you ride fast and crash, you are a bad rider. If you go slow and crash, you are a bad rider. And if you are a bad rider, you should not ride motorcycles.

    Why Do You Smoke Cigarettes?

    I do 'cuz I like to. Honestly, I think I could do without the nicotine. I actually enjoy the sensation of smoking, not necessarily the 'high' you get from the nicotine...

    My girls have REALLY been after me to stop lately. I don't smoke around them, but they've seen me and know that I do. When I quit, it'll be for them. Not necessarily 'cuz *I* want to...

    I quit all the time. I guess there's really know way to understand the addiction unless you've had it or have it. I hate smoking, everything about it, yet I'm still compelled to do it. I've tried just about everything to quit, nothing seems to work. Oh well, I'll keep trying though.

    Funny it should come up, I just quit (yet again) on Monday. This board is the only thing keeping me sane right now!!!!

    Cold turkey this time, because I'm starting the jym again on Monday and want to be able to take the nitric oxide stimulators.

    All this so I can build up the leg muscles and be better prepared to race next season....

    Why do you ride a motorcycle knowing they're so dangerous?





    January 26th will be my 7th year quit, haven't had a drag since.

    in most cases your right
    but you have no control on the other guy
    & some smoke all there lives with no ill afect
    ^^ most not but some ^^
    & some die younger that never smoked lung & hart related
    i know you can say they would have lived longer
    I wonder the stress level of a sport rider

    Someone didn't get as much out of their trackday as they could have.

    Maybe something to do with showing up extremely late for both my trackday and Tony's. It has been noted, by the way.

    Did you start this thread because you legitamately wanted to know why smokers smoke or do you just want to argue about shit and project your superiority since you don't smoke cigarettes?
