Tobacco Industries, Anti-Smoking Rallies, etc.
I am so damn tired of all these people going on and on about how Tobacco companies are so damn terrible. What makes them so bad? Because execs make money off of selling a product that people will buy that is harmful? Im sorry, wheres the turth.com for McDonalds - McHeartAttack please. What about alcohol companies? - Ill take a Scotch with my head splatter on the highway rocks bartender.
There are tons of harmful products out there. Yes, tobacco is one of the most but is it really the companies who are selling it to blame? Nobody is FORCED to smoke. People smoke on their own free will and no one has the f*cking brass to admit that when they get lung cancer its nobodys fault but their own. People who have parents, for example, who get lung cancer, all of a sudden go on a perosnal crusade against the word telling everyone they meet that Tobacco Companies are the devil because they sell a bad product. Do me a favor, go curse out your father for being the ******* who bought and smoked the 2 packs a day for 25 years, theres the real person to blame.
I dont feel sorry for anyone whos smoked for so long and gotten cancer or whatever illness. Its nobodys fault but your own dumbass self and im not giving you any pity you dumb**** for not quitting earlier. The reason I bring this up is because in New York City, the city has gone on some sort of crusade to stop people from smoking and more and more are we seeing anti-smoking commercials. The city commercials arent that because they dont blame anyone, they jsut have so-called "actual cancer victims from smoking" give the world their sob story on camera. Its the other ones like truth.com and whaddafxup that is pissing me off because they aim their commercials SPECIFICALLY at the companies as if its their fault people are smoking. Last time I checked it takes a persons free will top buy their first pack of cigarettes. Blame them.
Im a 5 year smoker, ive given my word to a few that I would quit on my next birthday and im going to stick by it. Yes nicotene is addicting but im not an idiot. If its going to potentially kill me in the future if I keep at it im not going to sit back and put the blame on the tobacco corporation. I know who to blame for my smoking... myself. The tobacco industry is just a company selling a product, be it hazardous or not - its my fault because I boguht the product - they arent doing anything wrong but sitting in the sidelines making money off of idiots who smoke. Is it really that hard to admit that all smokers are ones to blame for their addiction? I dont find it that hard but maybe everyone else is jsut looking for a scapegoat for their stupidity.
