I kow alto of people smoke, but if you were to see my grandmother on her death bed in the hospital you would have stopped by now. She was only trying to breath and couldnt. She was a heavy smoker in her younger years(i never saw it as i am young. The doctors decribed her lungs as leather and looking like a road map. They were so black and so full of tar that the oxygen was just producing carbon dioxide in her body. After reading this if you are a smoker i hope you decide to not smoke and let your loved ones be with you as long as they can. My grandmother never even made if to her 70's she was still young and enjoying seeing all her family.

smoking is a very addictable habit ..onc you come under its control , it is quite difficult to get out of its claws..So better be away from all kinds of weaknesses. An intelligent and wise person will never go in to such habits .

yes, smoking is harmful both to the smoking one and the others nearby. my father is also a smoking man and i stop him when he smokes. but it is useless, he cannot kick the habbit. luckly, my husband does not smoke.

Yes,smoking is bad for our health.The thing is known to all. But even though a lot of people smoking.My dad and my mom both smoke,i don't like them to smoke,but i can prevent them from smoking.Luckily ,my boyfriend doesn't smoke.Smoking is so harmful to the smoker but also to the other,so we must say no to smoke.

Thanks for nice concern about other health, i also personally feel that if everybody quite smoking then i think there will be healthy environment and there will be lot more healthy people in this gifted world. I don't smoke and I don't like drinking too, whenever i get chance to suggest people for this kind of hazardous problem then i get involved.

I m really sorry for your grand mother. Till now i had just tasted it . I had just taken a sip of it and i have found myself not addicted to it. And as you are saying ,i will take it as a warning and will never even be taking a sip of it. I had heard of its bad side effects but never heard of this dire consequence .

I believe that smoking is a terrible habit, that will only slowly kill you inside and out and cost you more money then gas now a days. I think that the new laws prohibiting smoking are in most ways a good thing, and would love to see the laws being passed in more areas as well.
