I don't think smoking a cigarette is quite as enjoyable as playing a new computer game, unless your addicted but then its not really enjoyable either. Your just taking enough to get you by another craving.
I didn't make it!
Mihail I don't think you are American, and since you aren't, I will tell you how things go here. Until you get out of High School, most kids here either strive to be with the cool kids, or they get stuck hanging out with the nerds. Sadly, a lot of "cool" kids smoke. So of course taking up smoking will make you look cool in their eyes, even though it makes you look like a dipshit in my eyes, but that is a differant story. Most kids smoke because they want to. Well why do they want to? And like Kung Foo or whatever said above me, it is differant then gaming. And smoking does affect a lot of peoples lifes earlier then 50-60 years.
Its L337-Fu -_-; But in any case, if your very lucky you wont see the effects of smoking for 50 or 60 years, if at all, but more often then not you can see the effects much earlier. Not to mention the disgusting teeth and bad breath that comes with it, unless they spend the extra money warding off the cig's effects on their appearance, but then the smoking becomes even more of a leech on you then it was before. You see, if I play a game, I can quit. I wont be at a business meeting and all the sudden I start huge craving for Half Life or something. To deny the poisonous effects of smoking is just ignorant, I mean people can smoke and pollute their bodies all they want thats their business, but that doesnt make it any less harmful.

If Nicolas Cage (news) lights a cigarette in a movie, Hollywood's ratings board should respond as if he used a profanity, according to authors of a new study that criticizes glamorous images of smoking in movies rated for children under 17.
Is it my mistake, or is Nicolas Cage in a lot of violent movies? I don't think I can think of one off the top of my head... ConAir, Face-Off... but I'm sure that he has kicked a lot of ass in his time. How the hell can parents be more bothered by Nicolas Cage lighting a cigarette in front of their children than blowing someone's brains across another person's face? Forgive me when I said humanity was going insane earlier. I meant to say humanity is growing into an unintelligent mass of stupidity... pulsating with idiocy, ignorance, folly and foolery.
They dont usually make movies rated R just for the swearing, 99.9 percent of the time any movie with excessive swearing also includes excessive violence or nudity/gratuitous sex.

Riiight. What does that have to do with Nicolas Cage smoking?
