The OP hasn't asked for help giving up they have asked for help finding them. Would you have the same response to someone asking where they can practice base jumping or such like?
Last I checked base jumping does not cause cancer. Yes it has risks, but they are not comparable to smoking, and if someone wants to take a risk and base jump, that affects them, and is not polluting our air, and does not include discared cigarette butts that are polluting our environment and causing health problems for themselves and non smokers. So yes, the decent response is to tell them is a bad , unhealthy habit , that just doesn't affect themselves but everyone.

Are others helping people by recommending a nice bottle of whisky, or a nice bottle of wine? We all have our vices, and many things in life that people commonly enjoy aren't good for you, including overeating and infidelity. Get off your high horse, no-one wants to hear (or cares about) you preaching about smoking just because you don't find it agreeable.
Cigarettes and tobacco have no redeeming quality. Alcohol in moderation for some people can have some health benefits. Apples and oranges mi amigo

If you're living in London, what business have you to hijack threads asking where to buy cigarettes in Switzerland?

Remember Morgannon? He didn't live in Switzerland either...

Why would you want to "stop one person from seeing smoking isn't worth it " ?

I thought you were against smoking. Changed your mind ?
If I want to see smoking isn't worth it, will you try and stop me ?

On the contrary: being a nuisance on the forum and not living in Switzerland puts you at serious risk of being banned.

What are you still doing here? Unlike other former residents of Switzerland like Dakman and Evilshell, you are contributing nothing of value to the forum, yet still persist in posting. What is your business here? Why aren't you trolling septicsforum.co.uk?

Unless you come up with something better than stupid comments about "maths" and "cancer sticks", you'll be following Morgannon into oblivion.

I doubt you'll be missed.

His posting tonight is begging for a ban. Maybe it's the bottle speaking, or maybe he is angry at Switzerland, maybe both. He certainly isn't posting from a happy position.

But somehow you still seem to care. Trying to convince someone to stop smoking is not of value?

Coming from someone who has never met me, and then accuses me of having hairy palms? Smiling here.

Sorry, but looking down your nose with an oh so superior attitude isn't what this thread is about, rrs. Get off your high horse and preach elsewhere. It doesn't belong in this thread, regardless of what you think about someone's tobacco addiction or not.
Evilsmell,Fact is someone's smoking does affect me and the people around me.

Some may groan, but are others really helping by supporting the OP's habit? So explain how it is a good thing to recommend where to buy cigarettes?
Nothing wrong with the OP's habit.

So yes, it is a good thing to recommend where to buy cigarettes.

Alas, as a non-smoker, I have no idea.

Being no fan of smoking, I think I can safely say that you're being a sanctimonious douche. Do you walk everywhere? Do you live in a cave? Do you not send off all your trash to be dumped in the ocean? Having tried, unsucessfully, to get my grandma (RIP) to stop smoking, the only way anyone is going to stop is to make that decision themselves. They certainly aren't going to do it at the repetitive insistence of some anonymous internet harpy.
