At a time when we are all concerned about the rising cost of medical care and insurance, it is time that we put a premium on all those who cause their own harm like smokers, heavy drinkers, drug users, and the morbidly obese gluttons, etc., that refuse to live a healthy lifestyle. Insurance companies and the government should refuse to cover any illness that is self inflicted and put the cost right back in the laps of the abusers.

Insurance companies and the government should refuse to cover any illness that is self inflicted and put the cost right back in the laps of the abusers. Make them pay the full cost of their medical coverage and expense. Maybe that would change a few behaviors and mtake the need to keep raising insurance and medical premiums to a minimum for the rest of us.

My Husband and I like to go to casinos and usually have a good time. I wish we could ban smoking in them as these people for the most part, that smoke there, are very militant about being able to smoke. Next time an Indian casino gets approval, I think one of the conditions should be that they have at least have a large non-smoking area equal at least to the smoking area with seperate ventilation. I know my participation in attending casinos is optional but it is a source of a lot of fun...

Some of the smokers are so rude they hold their cigarettes so that their smoke goes directly in your face and refuse to move it when asked. That is when I break out my fan and send it back to them! I have a fan and I'm not afraid to use it! But wouldn't it be better if smoking were banned in all public places. The Indian casinos also sell cigarettes tax free so many people go there just to buy them. They are not affected by taxes and sell them at a discount. We all pay the price for this practice.

My mom was a smoker for about 40 years. I still don't know where she found the strength to quit cold turkey but she did. Unfortunatley the damage was already done and she developed COPD. If you want to watch something that will break your heart, just know someone who has COPD and watch them slowly die. Never smoked. Not stupid enough to start.
