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

  • Sociology -

    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

  • Sociology -

    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

  • Sociology -

    What does social ostracization mean?

  • Sociology -

    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.
