January 18, 2009 8:31am CST
I had given up smoking and was off cigarettes for a long time. One day aI suddenly got the urg tostart smoking and I had one cigarette. One led to another and so on. Now i have been smoking one odd cigarette a day and at times up to 4, but no more than that. How harmful willit be to smoke jsut about 3-4 cigarettes a day? Is it as bad as smoking a pack of 10 or it really will not be that harmful. The body must be having some self cleansing mechanism too. Excess of everything is bad but inmoderation is it ok?

i think no matter what it will be harmful.. some people that are very light smokers can get cancer lung cancer before the heavy chain smokers.. a lot of it is how your body is made.. but no matter what if you smoke you are putting yourself at risk

it doesnt matter now many you smoke it still kills but some say your going to die anyway, but by smoking your making it come sooner. plus you shouldnt start in the first place.

There is no such a word 'just' when you are smoking...
