Do you also smoke or drink?But why do people smoke or drink even after knowing it is injurious health and its not tasty either. I have seen many people spoiling their lives in drinking and smoking? Do you have any reason for smoking or drinking?

Because of addiction. I used to drink, but I have since quit and trying to quit smoking. But just knowing it is bad for us does not always just instantly turn us off from things. We are a pleasure seeking world and addiction helps try to curb our appetites. I will quit one day and I am working on it, but my advice don't ever start anything that is or can be addictive and you won't have to worry about it.

YEs you are right, young people often taste it for once and then they become addicted
