Pro

It causes lung cancer! It addicts people! How is this good!
Rockylightning

Con

Well, pro has stated ZERO sources so....

also,
-It suppresses your appetite therefore you lose weight.
-It calms your nerves when you are under stress and keeps you focused. For this very reason psychologists have been doing studies on the positive side effects of nicotine on the mentally ill. They found that the mentally ill take in nicotine at higher rates than the normal population: 90% of schizophrenics, 70% of those with bipolar disorder and more than 50% of depressed individuals smoke. The article by DR. D.C. Jarvis states that this is because they have more mental noise that is reduced by nicotine. Therefore, helping them to focus on the world outside them instead of their internal hallucinations. There are other citing of nicotine being beneficial for colon and gastrointestinal problems. However, this has not been proven.
-It helps people think more clearly.
-Smoking helps when you have an oral fixation. It something to put in your mouth.
-Smoking can be a social activity. A way to hang out with friends.
-Smokers take more breaks than the average worker.
-To look cool.
-Nicotine is a psychomotor stimulant, and in new users it speeds simple reaction time and improves performance on tasks of sustained attention.
-Lastly, if you are in a rock band and are seeking that raspy voice like Joan Jet. Smoking well help you get there.

maybe that is true, but what if it is? He gets 2 empty wins that he knows are meaningless. And no one is negatively effected. It's not like he is going to get a trophy for this "debate."
