Decoding Social Smoking Brainwash 'Facts'
Plain Packs will be introduced in the UK as part of a plan to force plain packaging throughout Europe. A group of politically brainwashed megalomaniacs, who were not elected but 'appointed' into positions of authority inside Europe's power structure, have made this move in the name of health and safety, and as such we can do nothing about it. Their figures and facts are spurious, their verdict purely contrived, but the result is more brainwashing as they attempt to tell us smoking is 'bad', when in fact it isnt.
As we know, research surveys are funded in order to prove a stance, and all evidence which correlates to this is included, while the rest rejected as 'unsuitable evidence'. It is hard to find unbiased samples or surveys, but many graphs on the internet seem to correlate with a model something like this:
As you can see, Tobacco is certainly not “The number one cause of preventable early death in the world!” as 99% of the hypno-zombies would have us believe. Many other drugs are more harmful that tobacco, while the most harmful restricted drug is Alcohol - the most common drug on the planet, and the cause of twice as many preventable biological conditions, mood swings, relationship breakups (in red), crime and violence, and a high level of drug specific (and drug related) mental impairment and dysfunction (dark cream and light blue). It is fair to mention here at this point that we are looking at regulated drugs, and not pharmaceutical drugs like Statins or Pain Killers, which are as widely spread, and often just as harmful to yourself and other people as a result.
You may notice that almost all of the drugs above contain the "mental dysfunction" dark pink colour category, except for tobacco. You will notice the bold red "loss of relationships" is minimal, and many other sections for tobacco are trace elements at best. There are 4 large sections only, Dependency (Medium Blue) based on nicotine, which science has proved addictive but totally harmless. Economic Cost (Pink), based on country-based taxation laws, so if you happen to live in China or the Far East, tobacco is cheaper than food or water. Drug Specific Damage (Green) is where they often cite tobacco as being "THE MOST" dangerous, but this is based on an average survey and not looking at independent choice of consumption levels. In an average survey, 100 a day smokers are mixed with 2 a day smokers, and this means the average effect will be more than an average Ketamine or LSD user, who only take one dose, while the more dangerous drugs are limited by purchase price and overall expense. "Specific Damage" of tobacco in this case mainly refers to lung are artery damage. The lungs are the strongest organ in the body, and failure means bronchitis and emphysema, which can be treated with a normal Asthma inhaler. The arteries are much more affected by a bad diet and alcohol use, and these combined means damage on a far wider scale. Alcohol, for example, causes heart, liver, colon and kidney damage, as well as brain damage, which is irreversible in the short term, and deadly in the long term.
"Drug Related Mortality" (Dark Red) is the fourth and final issue with tobacco, out of all the issues listed on the graph. This is based on that fact that bad lungs and arteries can lead to the person to slow down and stay home, while almost all other drugs on this list will force the user out to socialise and party, meaning the body isnt as active and able to shrug off damage and disease. This means the issues associated with the side effects of smoking slowly compound over time, and eventually (say after 50 or 60 years) can lead to death. This region on the tobacco chart is therefore only as large as it is because people continue to use the drug for many more years continually, while almost all the other drugs, except for Alcohol, may be used for a select period of time in one's life and then overcome or abandoned, leading to a very low possibility of related death. This means the long term effect of smoking looks greater simply because users are forced to quit the more deadly drugs before they lead to a deadly effect; which glue, steroids, downers, meth, and heroine all end up providing if left untreated. Lastly, the dark blue section for "Drug Specific DEATH" can be seen for almost all other drugs, noticeably except for tobacco. This is because consuming too much other other drugs leads to overdose, or in the case of Alcohol - (severe) alcohol poisoning. If you smoke too much, the user might cough and might even vomit, big deal.
If we consider that the cost of drug use is the same (or cheaper) than the cost of food and luxuries, then this factor doesnt matter and can be wiped off the table. If we also consider the addiction factor is also a measure of how much a person can love and enjoy and crave the item, and is not directly related to damage or heath issues, in the same way that Chocolate and Coffee can be addictive, but they dont cause the user to die. So the addiction factor can also be removed from the evidence graph above. If you remove just those two sections from all of the drugs in the graph, you can see tobacco falls down the chart quite a bit - as far down as Methadone or perhaps Butane. I used to know a Butane addict, and believe me, it caused brain damage and wrecked his life, so I'd say tobacco actually falls somewhere around the other mood lifting drugs of Ecstasy, Mushrooms and LED, and this is where tobacco appears on some graphs and surveys.
Smoking is Deadly!?Lets compare this with official U.S. DEA comparison figures:
Even though the above graph gives us a false indication that 40 cigarettes are enough to kill you stone dead, while we know this is just not the case, at least this shows that tobacco is considered less harmful than Codeine or Ecstasy (MDMA). It is also fair to point out that Ketamine, Rohypnol and Mescaline all send the brain to cloud coo-coo land. One dose of these drugs could cause you to have the bright idea to go fix the roof, or play with electrical equipment, or drive cars; and lead to as much damage as LSD or Mushrooms for people who fall underneath cars, buses and trains. One cigarette, or a whole pack, doesnt have this sort of damage to the self or society, and people who drive and operate machinery say smoking helps them concentrate and be more on the ball; putting tobacco on the same level as Caffeine on the harm Vs Comfort scale.
Yes you could load yourself up with Caffeine and go out to commit murder and crimes, and so smoking is even less harmful than that. If we go by the '100 doses' rule, if you drank 100 cups of water a day, it would kill you. If you consumed 100 cups of coffee, or 100 painkillers, or 100 cans of beer, you would be dead. But even smoking tons of cigs doesnt do much in the short term, and in the long term, smoking is more likely to be harmful if you go crazy with it. If you only consume 5-10 per day, this is not likely to be deadly, in fact some people claim smoking helps fight colds and mild disease, and smokers rarely take a day off work. The oldest lady in history smoked one per day, and some say this can even help with long life! So smoking can be very mild and almost harmless.
