According to studies, smoking is one of the major causes of death. It causes damage to some major parts of our body. It also weakens the body resistance which results to increase the risk of getting other diseases. But despite of these advantages, still many people smoke. Is it to release tension and stress? What else? Why do people smoke?

If u smoke the u will die early than normal. but if u dont smoke u will die now. those who work with lots of tension they must smoke. or they will got heart attack or brain strock. i think u r a teenager. and u r in studies now. so u will never got the needs of smoke. u will c lots of doctor smoke too. y they do it?? did u ever question ur self bout that. take a good look at their life. u will got the answer. and the air pollution is the main coz of those disease. only child can think bout the smoke. air pollution 1000-10 million time worst than smoke. and air pollution cause by industries and motor car or plan even the rocket. so dont just say any without any thinking. only 1% of the disease u say cause by smoke. all other 99% caused by air pollution, water pollution and other things. i m giving u the info for ur own good buddy. think bout it

Thank you for responding. I'm not a teenager, actually I'm already a professional. Ive never tried smoking and i have no plans in trying one. I posted this discussion so i will know the different stories on why people smoke despite the fact that they already know the effect of smoking. Thanks for sharing.

Hey buddy, just relax. Im not insiting here that everybody should stop smoking. Its their choice, its their life. I have nothing to do with it. Every individual is unique from the other. And I respect that people have different needs and different means and ways to live their life to the fullest, the way they want it.
