    Here is some things that I cames up for smokers and illusion of invaulnerabilty. I need like 2 or 3 more examples. We have to list at least between 5 & 6 each for are homework

    Taking lots of medications to help with problems that smoking caused
    Being Weak
    Sudden Outbursts

    Sudden outbursts? Being weak? I don't understand.

  • Sociology - , Tuesday, February 10, 2009 at 9:30pm

    Being mentally weak
    Sudden outbursts of rage

    I don't really know I'm having trouble coming up with two more. Is the medications one alright to use?

    Can U start me off with a few things for non smokers then I will post the other things that i come up with to see if they are right

    I've never heard anyone say that smokers may be mentally weak or prone to sudden outbursts of rage. Yes, some smokers may feel they're invulnerable to smoking-related illnesses that require medication.

    If I understand your last question, you need some examples of nonsmokers feeling they're invulnerable.

    Nonsmokers believe they may be invulnerable to:
    cancer
    COPD
    bronchitis
    frequent colds
    pneumonia
    addictions
    social ostracization

    What does social ostracization mean?

  • Sociology - , Tuesday, February 10, 2009 at 9:58pm

    Social ostracization means being shunned by one's peers and society in general. Those who are socially ostracized are considered outcasts and not permitted to associate with others.
