A quick word.

Regarding the times I draw characters smoking a cigarette. I don't appreciate those of you who feel the need to chime in with some useless fucking rhetoric about how smoking is bad for ones health and blah de fucking blah, alright. You don't comment on those fuck pictures you love so much going on about safe sex when the characters aren't wearing condoms or how orgies are actually rather risky. You don't because it's a goddamn picture and it isn't real, it's fantasy.

What I choose to do with my own body in the form of smoking death sticks is my own business and I'm letting you know now that if you tell me this shit again now that I've cleared it up I reserve the right to shit all over you for being a preachy spack.

Thanks a bundle.

...it doesn't? What makes smoking a pipe different from smoking a cigarette? It's smoke.

Unless you're just lighting it and then holding it just to look cool. Then you're not smoking.

because if traditionally smoked (at least traditionally here in switzerland), the smoke is not inhaled, just sucked into the mouth and kept there. Sure you can still get mouth cancer but that's a lot rarer, easier to detect/treat and does not influence your abilities (like running)

Hay! Hay... guess what... GUESS WHAT! Did you know... that smoking is bad for your health. There's no way you could have possibly known that ever... it's not all over the TV and the packages and 3rd through 16th grade in school! So... smoking is bad for you...

... and Death Sticks reminds me of that scene from Star Wars.

actually, only cigarettes are, because they incorporate tar. cigars, pipes and marijuana are not dangerous to the body and do not provide any harm.

Actually, there is tar in marijuana leaves, too, and more gets into the body when it is smoked as a self-rolled cigarette because there's no filter. :-P

Of course you are right, I tried to keep my answer to a minimum, but I will of course go into deeper detail:

to tobacco first, I mean by it, if it is smoked the way it was smoked here (switzerland) originally, in pipes and not actually inhaling, then it is not nearly as dangerous. It also smells good ^^

to the marijuana, if the right parts are smoked, the blunts, it actually produces only 1/3 of the tar of a normal cigarette, additionally you would never smoke as much joints as some people feel compeled to with normal cigarettes.

to the cigars, I was focusing on the fact, that they are usually smoked in small quantities, like any drug should be consumed in my opinion.

Also there are methods to smoke stuff with filtering most dangerous substances out, for example by using a properly cleaned water pipe or a vaporisation tool.

Hehe, for the most part, I was just teasing Roarey, as I honestly don't care what he does and does not do to his body. I wish everyone on here a long healthy life, unless you're a douche bag, then I wish you a long painful one. >^.^<

Marijuana is typically mixed with tobacco when smoked over here, rofl. Plus, even if you don't inhale you're still at risk of mouth cancer! Then again, you can get cancer whilst living a healthy lifestyle too, so fuck it. A friend of my mothers never smoked or did drugs and seldom drank; she ended up riddled with cancer and died before she was 45.

People tend not to use filters when they smoke marijuana; smoked, it's about as bad as cigarettes as far as tar and so on goes. However, if you smoke 20+ joints a day, you have bigger problems than eventual lung cancer. And there are a number of ways of ingesting marijuana without combusting it. On the other hand, tabacco also includes a whole bunch of added crap, so that stuff is absent in pot.

Studies have shown that there may actually be cancer-fighting agents in cannabis, but it isn't a free ride. :P

I don't smoke, but I can appreciate it in art and stories.

Though, having been with my pack-a-day mom for a week and a half here has really irritated my eyes.  But, eh.

*In a whiny voice* but... but.. it'll stunt your characters growth.. and.. and.. it'll stain their paws and teeth... and it'd be bad for any cub around who might see it and start smoking due to their influence... and... and think of the chiiiiildren!

Also, can you please draw some snuff/vore/rape of my feline character being lynched by Klu Klux Kanines?

Well, I'm not big on smoking, nor do I plan to start, but I agree with you. It's a picture. God forbid your picture gets lung cancer or something. It's not like you're posting a photograph of yourself saying "boy do I love smoking it's so good for you so is pot I do cocaine too!"

It's a picture, and your smoking is your business otherwise, regardless.

Hmmmm.... sorry, if my comment made you angry. I meant it only as a mild joke, but now I can see it might have been offensive in some way. I never intended to made you sad or anything. I hope you can forgive me my ignorance.

Hear, hear!

The fun thing about these fantasy pictures and stories is that the cigarettes just might be good for the character's health. Who is to say, other than the artist? Even if the cigarettes are bad for the character, hey, maybe that's part of who the character is, you know? That's another good thing about these fantasy things; a fake character can't blow smoke in your face (or up your ass). Much like the concept of not needing condoms in such fantasy pictures or stories, smoking in such art is similarly safe and should not be preached about.

On that subject, if someone is trying to get someone to stop smoking in real life, nagging at them never works. Many people smoke because of stress, and nagging at them - guess what? - causes stress. A smoker will stop when they feel they're ready; all a person can (and should) do is support that decision and the person making it. Like so many other things, if you don't want to see it in fantasy art/stories, don't bloody read it.

You, Roarey, are not trying to hypnotize, force, coerce, convince, or otherwise talk people into smoking, right? Thus people should just shut the hell up about it. Just like religion, politics, drinking, drug use, and so on. Pushing beliefs on another is a horrid thing, no matter what is being pushed; defending one's own beliefs is noble.

Anyway. I'll get off my soapbox now; sorry for briefly usurping your journal. Keep up the great work!

Or, in other words, "You know, it's easy to quit griefing, just don't buy anymore keyboards!"

Yeah, before I quit, and really still, I think it should be legal to smack any but immediate family and household members with a baseball bat as soon as they start handing out "Advice to Live By."

So an artist tends to place their habits good or bad into their work.
Ah.
" What I choose to do with my own body in the form of smoking death sticks is my own business and I'm letting you know now that if you tell me this shit again now that I've cleared it up I reserve the right to shit all over you for being a preachy spack.

It's still really good for you to quit, but it's none of my fucking business!
Besides, it's really gad damn hard to quit. I look back on it, though it hasn't been too long, and think... (??)
People go to AA for what now?

If you're gonna place it in ur work, then just do it.
If I say something wrong about it... tell me to stfu.

I'm sorry if my comment on that one drawing made you mad. I'm not big on smoking unless it's involves meat, having said that I did experiment with cigars and even a tobacco pipe when I was 20.

Fine, but if I get eye cancer or get some kind of vitreous tar buildup from secondhand art appreciation, I'm going to sue your ass into bankruptcy.

People can do what they want to their own bodies. It's just the smell factor. I'm all for a future of electronic cigarettes.

I honestly didn't even think for one second about it.  I think people who complained don't realize that art has more merit to it then it's content.
