I think people who drink are bad parents. s/o of I think smokers are bad parents. EDIT

Posted by   + Show Post

I dont see the difference between smoking and drinking. Alcohol is a poison,thats why you have to pee alot when you drink, your body knows its a poison and telling your body to get it out. It destroys your liver and parents do it even though they know its bad for them. So whats the difference? What makes smoking so much worse for you than alcohol. Im not a drinker and I quit smoking, Im not against any of them as my huband does both, but if you are going to make a post acting like smoking is the devil you shpouldnt exclude alcohol, its just as bad.

Since people cant read, I not against drinking, Im saying drinking is just as bad as smoking. If you drink I dont think you have any room to tell smokers they are bad parents, like the post yesterday.

There is the orignal post! FFS I was just making a damn point. I wont make a spin off post anymore since no one knows how to read and bitches at me from the title!

 

I see its pointless to make a true statement with all you alcoholics with all your dead brain cells ou killed from the lack of oxygen while drunk making you stupid. Alcohol was not meant to be consumed, its a poison, its man made. If it wasnt a poiso there wouldnt be that many people dying from it every year, not including drunk driving accidents. Your liver filers your pee, when it filters alcohol, even the tinyest amount, it is still causng damage to your liver. All I was trying to say is both are bad, not just smoking. But whatever, go have fun with your liver disease and not living to see your gradkids, I hope it was worth it!

Lol I know. I was just making a point. :-)


Quoting Anonymous:

People don't typically drink on a corner. Drinking while driving does kill people. Smoking while driving does not (short term anyway).



Quoting MrsMommy2011:

If you drink on the corner and a person walks by it will not affect them.





If you smoke on a corner and a person walks by, the second hand smoke can and will cause health problems. Second hand smoke can trigger an athma attack.

Coffee makes me pee a river... Is that a "poison" too?
And there's a lot of difference between smoking and drinking. First and foremost, if I drink in moderation I'm not affecting my children in any way. Smoking near them affects them.
Second, alcohol doesn't necessarily become an addiction. You can drink alcohol and never become addicted to it. Smoking will make you addicted.
I don't particularly think that smokers or drinkers are "bad" parents, it's one factor in such a complex thing that I don't see how anyone can say that. But if I had to choose one that's worse... Smoking, by far

It still is just as bad for you as alcohol is. You completely contradicted yourself in front of everybody.

I don't think either makes you a bad parent unless you are buying cigs over food for your kids or alcohol.

Quoting brittany208:

I don't do either. DH does both. We are both great parents.

Smoking is worse bc it gets on other people too. But alcohol is worse because up your judgement in a way smoking cigs doesn't do. Moderation and appropriate timing is key!


I didnt say smokers or drinkers are bad parents, there was a post yesterday saying smokers are bad parents, well if they think that drinkers should be bad parents as well since they are both bad for your health. I dont think drinking or smoking makes you a bad parents, I just think its ridiculous to say smokers are bad parents but drinking is perfectly fine


I know. I wasn't offended. I was just saying--youre right, they don't make you bad parents, and both are bad if you don't use moderation.
