This is, of course, true. But I'm still never going to be an alcoholic without choosing to take the first sip.

My grandfather was an alcoholic. I drink socially with no problems, but I always make sure not to overdo it.

Again...I guess I'm doing it wrong. I could get some benefit from the idea that I might be more likely to get addicted than someone else, right?

Did I say smoking should be considered a pre-existing condition?

No.

jfool4lsu gonna jump to conclusions...

If you had ever had any exposure to addiction disorders, you'd understand.

But go ahead and base your opinions on ignorance, it's par for the course on this board.

yet you came to the defense of it in the thread instead of just posting "yeah this is stupid", which is the only reasonable response.

No, I didn't.

I'm saying that addiction is more than just wanting to smoke, and it affects people differently.

WTF! I'm near deaf and a hearing aid is considered COSMETIC but smoking is a condition.

How is a hearing aid that you need cosmetic? Makes no sense.

Under current insurance rules, a hearing aid is cosmetic no matter how bad you impairment unless you are a child.

Most insurance policies exclude hearing aids except for young children.

Total BS if you ask me but that is the current insurance law.

Do you think that will change under the ACA?
