There was a shmuz from R’ Mattisyahu last night, and this was announced. All bochurim will have a to sign a paper, stating that they don’t have texting and internet when they register for next zman (similar to signing the “freezer” paper) If they don’t sign- they are not registered in Yeshiva- meaning no bed and no seat.
Jack Daniels: apparently you think smoking is harmless. I don’t think you are going to change anyone’s mind here. Go argue with the FDA and the statistics. When you win, and refute what all the scientists and medical experts are saying, then you can let us know.
Jack Daniels: I don’t understand this statement- “so nobody looks down on her then why do u look down on those who smoke?”
I am trying to say that we don’t look down at our friend who married a working boy. Even though we all married learning boys, there is nothing wrong with marrying a working boy if you are not interested in Kollel. On the contrary, if you are not interested in kollel, marrying a working boy is the RIGHT thing to do .
Smoking, on the other hand, was, is and will always be WRONG.
I am not trying to be rude. I am trying to tell you that although I can sympathize, I can not empathize with people who have no backbone, since I am not in that situation B”H. I am sorry if that came across in the wrong way. I apologize.
Jack Daniels; don’t worry so much about those “poor” girls who are “marrying that bmg boy and having the “kollel life” even if thats the last thing they want?” Those people are finished with kollel after the first year, if it lasts that long. So don’t feel so bad for them. And PS, even though all my friends married long term learners, I have one friend who wasn’t interested in this, and married a boy who was working from Day 1. And no one looks down at her, or stopped being her friend.
Jacks Daniels: Just because you smoke out of the house, doesn’t mean you are not going to die. So if your wife volunteers to be a widow, and your children volunteer to be orphans, then go right ahead and smoke outside the house, no problem.
Yes, I do know something about addictions. You can’t become addicted until you start. You have the choice to start or not. So once you start smoking, it is your own fault. And if you are blaming it on peer pressure, I am sorry you don’t have enough backbone to stand up to peer pressue.
