I've a question about the 'question' somebody asked about quitting smoking
You said you're careful not to smoke around others, so it is your business and no one else's. I don't see it that way. Yes, the freedom must be yours to live your life the way you want, but what if your decision (in this case, to smoke) infringes upon the freedom I grant you?
For example, if you have an illness as a result of your smoking, it is you who are hospitalized or whatever. However, it's not just YOUR health insurance premiums that are affected. The increase in health care costs are passed on to all of us, so we all bear the brunt of your decision.
I'm against a socialist societ
actually we have free health care in canada. i've paid taxes for 35 years and never been in the hospital. smokers here pay about 17% of the healthcare bill but we only use about 6% of it on smoking related illnesses. if someone plays sports and is hurt, should the people who don't play sports have the right to be angry because health insurance premiums go up because of sport injuries. or if a person doesn't drive but a person driving gets in an accident , a non-driver still gets effected by the increases. i understand what you were saying but i disagree with you anology of it.
Ya but if someone close to you gets lung cancer and dies because of your smoking and you are unharmed, would you still feel the same way? I'm neutral on the issue, I just wanted to throw that scenario out there.
We get free healthcare here in the U.K too but smokers tend to increase cost in the N.H.S because of the self-inflicted health-care that they require. It is then reflected in income tax etc. We all have to pay for the care that the nicotine addicts require. Should they not pay their own way?
