    Study recommends total ban on smoking for soldiers
    Chris Lawrence



    I'm not a smoker; but even I can see where this would be a bad idea at this particular juncture in time. Aside from the huge fiscal loss mentioned at the end of the article is it really a good idea to deny active duty combat soldiers one of their few pleasures? :confused:

    Maybe they'll repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell at the same time, and then the soldiers who smoke can just switch to cocksucking.

    What a crap idea - in a stressful situation like that, you need something to enjoy and calm yer nerves. Also - I imagine having a ciggie together is quite good for bonding and morale.

    War is pretty risky anyway (obviously) - if they're facing life and death situations all the time, should they really have to worry about cigs takin' a few years off their lives?
