I sure as hell didn't say it, you did.... or did you mean something else? That's why I asked the question.
By all means, tell us how you truly feel.
The comparison is on the addiction. Not the name. Although I've known a few people who have opted to buy cigarettes over food for their kids, because they "need" to smoke. I watch people go to great lengths to defend their practice of smoking and use excuses and denial just like a heroin addict. So..maybe you're right.
Once again, I never said it, so don't start getting all upity with me and shoving words into my mouth. You best get your sh*t together when it comes to remembering what you said.
You said you wouldn't want a junkie working for you in reference to this topic and subject, and clearly linked your reasoning with the likes of these people who are discriminating against smokers. And with the above you just said directly confirms your stance as smokers being junkies and no better then heroin addicts, based on a couple of bad experiences you encountered in your life with slum *** people who put their addictions ahead of their families.
Thanks for classifying me into that ignorant generalization.
You want an excuse for why I smoke?
Because I damn well choose to and I have every legal right to do so. Deal with it.
