Look here Mr. Roo

I'm sure you don't like when people tell you what to do.

"Do this"
"Don't do that"
You are overstating the harm and addictions here.
For strangers to tell you "your going to die from this" is none of their business.
You are acting like a "bible thumper", telling others to do, what you think is right.

Leave it alone.....
Nothing to get worked up over

I have seen so many people die and suffer from tobacco

This is something maybe you have not seen

I promise you, the addiction is not worth the very clear risk to your health

But the nature of addiction is to make you want nicotine

It is a subtle psychological process, but it kills

yes, UYA, authoritarianism is inefficient

the best way is to provide a clear understanding and allow people to make their own choices

but, for sure, nicotine is one of the most addictive substances availaible

This is an interesting irony

I think you should be allowed to live the way you want to

However, I am absolutely sure that certain drugs, including nicotine, hijack mental processes to self-determination

yeah.....
next step
tax fat people.

In my view these measures are diversionary, it gives people the opportunity to exercise malice disguised as benevolence and concern. They draw public attention away from the real issues like taking from the poor to give to the rich.
