    Coffee = Good

    Cigarette = Bad

    Just my opinion.

    Mark Twain said if you're going to smoke, you've got to have rules. So he had two rules he followed unflinchingly. He never smoked two at a time, and he never
    smoked while asleep.

    You can jump from a building if you want to kill yourself - or either drink coffee and smoke.

    Coffee dries the skin and makes people look old.

    Cigarettes kill people who sit next to the one smoking it.

      I've done a lot of coffee drinking in my day, and I have to say that I see no signs of its doing anything to my skin.  My face has stayed younger looking than many people my age, and I see no signs of aging anywhere else at all.  You can't believe everything you hear/read about some things.

      And let's be honest, the remark about killing someone who sits next to a smoker is extreme hyperbole.  Unless there's an allergy to smoke that is so extreme as to cause anaphylactic shock, someone can sit next to someone smoking and live to tell about it.

    coffee:  replaced my need for water. lol
    cigarettes: make the air I breath taste better.

    If coffee and cigarettes make you look old,  I wonder why I still look like a kid but have been hooked on both since I was a kid. 

    Cigarettes and coffee.....

    something is gonna kill me,  might as well be pleasurable.  smile

      Wow,

      Imagine what you would look like if you didn't smoke?  Now you can smoke electronic nano tech FAUX cigarettes and enjoy the flavor, taste and nicotine addiction without the carcinogens, the first health safe smoking alternative.  Now you can smoke and not age or get cancer, heart disease and emphysema, made sense to me.

    Coffee is an every once in awhile treat for me, with cigarettes yes they can kill you but most people know that when they smoke and are willing on some level to take that risk as the rewards of smoking or using good tobacco are quite good imo.  Then again I say that and I usually stay away from filtered cigs.

    I smoke the non filtered kind with little or no additives that one must roll on one's own.  I try to get the flavored roll your own tobacco if I can obtain it.

    I also smoke Pipe's with something like Prince Alburt tobacco or something not too dry or too moist.  I like a curved pipe because it is easy to let it sit there while one read's a book.

    I also chew or dip at times as well.

    I suppose I like tobacco all around.

    smile

    Btw a fine cigar after a good meal is awesome!

        That's true.   I used to get horrible headaches on Saturdays, and I would think it was because I slept late.  Then I realized that I was in caffeine withdrawal, after a work-week of drinking coffee all through the day.  They were piercing, awful, headaches - but nothing a couple of cups of coffee couldn't cure.   smile  (Aspirin did nothing for them.)

    I simply adore coffee and cigarettes.  Like Mark Twain, I find it easy to quit smoking--I've done it hundreds of times. At this point I think I'm past the age where quitting will make a difference, so I've given in to it.

      Don't care for nicotine though - no health benefits from that stuff.

    I enjoy coffee and have to have at least three cups a day, but love tea the most;  would probably enjoy visiting England. smile  Don't do cigarettes  but my mate does; he hardly smokes around me as he never smokes inside the house, (which is good as I don't like second hand smoking) as  he likes to go out in the garden and smoke, while walking around the garden.

    Love coffee--can't function in the morning without it. Don't drink it in the evening any more as it keeps me awake. I find decaf loathsome<makes face> Give me high test or nothing at all.

    Smoked 2 to 3 packs of cigarettes a day for years--tried to quit numerous times--failed numerous times. Finally got it and haven't had a cigarette in 8 years--am soooooo happy to be free of it  I would never ever take even one puff again smile Most people who are still smoking are doing so because they have to not because they want to--if they could quit easily, they would IMHO.....well, maybe not all, but most smile

    I like smoking and probably will never quit unless have to, for health condition. But I smoke 5 cigs a day for 30 years, figuring that way it may not get me. As 'Rumple of the Bailey' said, I should give up my cigar so I can have
    a couple extra years dribbling on my bib in an old folks home. Time will tell.

      robie2posted 8 years ago in reply to this

      If I could have limited myself to 5 a day I would definitely still be smoking.  Moderation in all things etc.--not my strong point. smile

    I think the less you smoke - the more you suffer. Some time ago I read a book on the matter, that stated you start craving for the next cigarette the very moment you finish previous one - unless you are a chain smoker. I think the guy has it right smile

    It's what the body is adjusted too. I smoke a strong, long
    cigarette that lasts me 3 to 4 hours. My body is adjusted to that. If I smoke extra cigs it make me ill. But I am definitely a slave to smokes. 20 minutes and it's my 3 oclock. However it's like a sedative for a maybe overactive mind.

    If I miss my morning coffee, I get the headache from hell. And I never miss my morning smoke. Or any of the ones after that. I've tried to smoke more, but I can't stay awake for that many hours.

      Coffee headaches are horrible, no over the counter product will touch the pain, either.  You have to wean down to avoid it.  I got down from about a dozen cups a day to two, occassionally three.

      Sadly, thought I've tried to quit numerous times over the years, I still smoke.

          Yes, they are.  I'm sorry, but I don't like American cigerettes - they stink so bad and taste awful.  Probably, if that's what I was used to it would be fine.

          Our beer is a whole LOT better than yours, too.  Again, sorry but it's just plain true.

    coffee is good it keeps you alert and helps you focus more on your work when your eyes gets heavy but too much coffee is bad making you over alert and doesnt help when you want to sleep. preferred intake is 2-3 cups of coffee per day.
    cigarret is all bad it damages your lungs and prone to respiratory illnesses and you are also at risk of buerger's disease, and being a woman is a predisposing factor.

    First thing in the morning,  have a cup of coffee. Very seldom that i would miss having a coffee. I n work i still even have a coffee break especially if i am assigned in a graveyard shift.

    Coffee is a lot better than cigarette.

    The only kind of coffee I like is Coffee IceCream. I only rarely drink a cup of coffee if I need to be up late, although it doesn't really help.

    I don't smoke because I don't want to obtain the risks they give you.

    Personally, I'm a Pepsi or Coke drinker in the morning or whenever, and I like energy drinks like Vault.

    Love the cigarettes, really don't like the coffee. I sub in a large can of diet rockstar in the morning instead of coffee. Add 1 MetRX bar and you get all the "ine"s out of the way. Caffeine, nicotine, and protein!

    Coffee is not good for health but a small dose is okay. Regardless what those adver tries to tell you coffee is no good to health.

    Cigarettes is definitely a 'No". Some people claim that getting a smoke will make them feel good or relax. What they don't know is deep breathing can also achieve the same result. It's just a matter of habit.
