When my daughter first shared with me that she wanted to try smoking. I told her about my experience visiting a cigarette factory and watching tobacco become brown sludge with over 400 different chemicals added and then being put through more processes to make it look more like tobacco again. Cigarettes are a nicotine delivery system.And then I asked her to go to the Internet and get all the information she could about tobacco and if she still wanted to smoke, I'd buy her a pack of American Spirit due to that cigarette having the least additives.To my surprise she came back with the information and still wanted to try it. So we arranged a time and a place to do it. A home environment... our living room.She inhaled... she coughed... she laughed... she got a little dizzy... she liked that... she got a little more dizzy... she didn't like that... then she got nauseous... she really didn't like that... She said: WHY DO PEOLE DO IT!
They like the dizzy feeling... the nausea dissipates after awhile due to tolerance but you know there is another anti-cultural way to get dizzy: SPINNING!
