25. I'm a smoker and I like smoking
I can't really smoke anywhere any more where there are people but because people get on my nerves typically, I don't hang out. I don't go out to blow my cash on $4.00 beers when I can get them for about a buck each, I don't go out to restaurants and pay for food that I can make better myself and I don't go to sporting events to support the multi-millionaires throwing balls around.

I don't have any kids to worry about and I am just enjoying my life as I want to for the most part. I think that people better be careful of what they ask for and better be ready for the consequences. Personally, I think people are eagerly throwing away their rights and freedoms for a few nights a month at the bar, but they can't see beyond their own personal little box. And I also think that this whole smoking scam is going to bite a lot of people in the ass. This is just scraping the surface of what is to come.

I say enjoy what bit of personal freedoms you have left because it won't be long until they will be banning something you do for the sake of "the good of all". Suckers....
