There is very little that is entirely void of good or evil, positive or negative consequences. Finding some slight positive and ignoring the massive downside is a disengenious argument at best. At worst it is intentionally misleading.

Cigarette smoke keeps mosquitos away therefore smoking cigarettes is good for your health. Sounds kinda silly no?

Yes, life (and death for that matter) is not black and white. I am a "recreational" smoker (as opposed to a full time smoker. I coined the term lol). I enjoy a cigarette almost every day. Usually no more. Have for decades. It is what it is.
There's nothing deeper than love. In fairy tales, the princesses kiss the frogs, and the frogs become princes. In real life,the princesses kiss princes, and the princes turn into frogs
