I've been telling myself to quit for ages, but not managing to each time and failing miserably. It's funny how I know the effects of smoking could be harmful to one's health yet at the same time, I still can't find myself to stop at all. Even though there are tips out there, I still find myself too comfortable to follow through. Hope one day that I could find the desire to really quit for the sake of my health.

For myself I smoke and I happen to enjoy it. I also don't see it as a bad habit. Anything in life can be injurious to our health, it just depends on what you want to do with your life. Also there are more and more studies coming out that show smoking isn't as bad as they thought. If you are interested in reading such articles here are some links: Smoking doesn't cause lung cancer: http://www.journaloftheoretics.com/Editorials/Vol-1/e1-4.htm Passive Smoking (second hand smoke) doesn't cause cancer: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/htmlContent.jhtml?html=/archive/1998/03/08/wtob08.html Therapeutic Benefits of Smoking and Nicotine: http://www.forces.org/evidence/evid/therap.htm (several articles and studies on this one) Smoking seems to be going the way of pork, eggs, and milk. In the 80's studies and doctors said not to eat these due to the harm they will cause but now they have done a 180. Studies revealed that pork, eggs and milk are good for you. I wouldn't be surprised if they do the same about smoking.

Yes, you are on the dot, smoking is really very injurious to our life and it can spoil the entire family. Those who indulge in this habit should quit it as soon as possible. I do not smoke at all, so I do not need to quite it........LOL!

I definitely agree. I'm 28, I started smoking when I was 21. So far, I'm 2 months without smoking and it is hard but I'm happy that I'm able to start quitting. I had 2 TIAs the past 3 years (combination of smoking and bad eating habits) and I am a living testament that smoking is bad. It took me a while to bring my health back to good condition. I'm glad it's still early. :)
