The Smokers Torch

Stop Smoking

Quit smoking

Smokers need something to light their cigarettes with. This task falls to the match, or lighter. Both can be dangerous to the smoker themselves.

Any smoker, who has smoked for any length of time, will tell you that they’ve managed to burn themselves at one time or another. Hell, it’s like a right of passage. There are just so many ways to do it, that it’s almost impossible not too.

The cheap, dollar lighter is among the easiest way a smoker has of burning themselves. Sometimes these cheap little contraptions don’t want to go out. You light your cigarette and shove the lighter in your pocket without thinking. Then you do a silly dance in the middle of the street because the lighter didn’t go out and you find yourself being branded. It’s also quite possible that you’re going to have to replace those pants.

Matches are another lighting method bound to cause problems. You can drop the little fire stick into your lap, scaring the crap out of you. You can have your eyebrows singed when the match flairs up higher than expected.

Have you ever bought a dollar lighter that you can manually adjust? You know, those cheap little see through ones, which you can turn up even more than safety would allow by removing the metal part at the top of the lighter. Ever had someone turn that up without your knowledge?

Yeah, it’s not a fun experience when you go to light your cigarette and you find that you’re holding a flame thrower instead of a lighter. If you happen to be around other people, the hilarity is even better. What, with you jumping around with a look of terror on your face, or even worse, no eyebrows. If you happen to have long hair, and you’re wearing some kind of flammable substance in it, such as hair spray, it can get even uglier.

Then there is the “smiley face.” This happy sounding phrase means that you heat the end of the lighter up and burn yourself with the hot metal part at the tip of the lighter. Sounds like fun, huh? Teenagers love to do this. Why is anybody’s guess. Perhaps, they think they’re cool because they can stand the pain.

While all of these tales may sound funny, and even look funny when seen from afar, they really aren’t funny at all. Someone can be seriously injured.

If lighters are left around, children can get a hold of them. Matches are even easier for a kid to use. It might be your kid’s face that the lighter tries to burn off.

Lighters and matches can be dangerous. Make sure you remember to keep them in a safe place, out of the reach of children.
