For all those who say that they feel it is ok to use the internet bec there are also many necessities, can you honestly tell me that you would buy a pruste magazine if it also had some clean pages and you say that you will only look at the clean ones? How can you put yourself in a matzav that you are so close to polluting your mind?If you say U’shimartem es Nafshoseichem- what part of your body could possibly be more important that your brain and the way you think?Im not saying that I promote smoking but it is clearly the lesser of two evils.
to whom it may concern, i saw this thread and had to get involved so i registered. my name is in tribute to random88!
btw, im not a smoker nor have i ever been. i dont know if you know this but in the past the mir allowed smoking in the beis medrash, and as you probably know its no longer allowed, so apparently the “so called problem” IS being taken care of. did you ever think that maybe smoking is a way for a bachur to relax from his strenuous lifestyle? as far as i know the mir seems like one of the top places to lear, after all you did choose to learn there. also a bigger problem to deal with is one that you have, your laptop! (check out the new thread about smoking vs. internet)
Also second hand smoke isnt what comes out of your mouth, but rather what comes out of the other end of the cigarette. How could second hand smoke be worse if its what comes out of the mouth of the first hand smoker?? So when someone exhales into your face its not that bad, it has already went through the filter of the cig, and then through the filter of lungs, which removed all the bad particles from the smoke. And there is no issur in smoking, ask a posek
Dear ssiy, let me start that i learned in the Mir recently and that i am not a smoker nor have i ever been. Firstly its not too surprising that your user name is one letter short of “sisy”, be a little bit of a man and handle a little smoke, what are you gonna say next that there shouldnt be any Firemen they’re inhaling smoke plenty of time and still choose their lifestyles in order to help others?! Did you ever think that maybe smoking for a Yeshivah Bachur is a relaxing way for him to “chill” from his lifestyle of hopefully learning all day! Secondly, talk to some ppl who were in the mir years ago, THEY USED TO SMOKE IN THE BEIS MEDRASH!! And as you probably know now they no longer allow it so obviously the yeshivah is somewhat dealing with the problem! Give it some time! Israel only passed its laws about smoking indoors recently, so give that some time as well!! Im assuming your an american, your just not used to the smoke, there are plenty places worse than the Mir. Finaly, if you wanna deal with problems i say you start with yours first. You Say you’re currently in the Mir “Learning!? Why do you even have a computer? And why are you waisting yout time posting about “problem”,.You deal with your “learning” and growing into a “ben torah” and let the hanhala deal with the problems. As far as i know the Mir seems like a pretty sucesfull Yeshivah. I mean hey, You chose to go there after all for some reason!!!!!!
