We see statutory warnings 'No Smoking' or 'Smoking is injurious to health' everywhere. But smokers pay very little regard to such warnings.The habit of smoking is neither good for the smoker nor for his family.It leads to breathing troubles for the smokers and also for the non-smokers.Smokers are very often seen to suffer from bronchial asthma which sometimes turns into cancer,a fatal disease.Moreover smoking is nothing but wastage of money. It is really a costly habit nowadays. So giving up smoking means better health and more savings. It will then enable a man to spend more for the welfare of his dearest and nearest ones.

Smoking really kills in its nature. It can cause a multitude of diseases ranging from cancer, hair loss, emphysemia and immunodeficiency. At that, smoking is one o the worls probems, aong with crime... But to think that most people smoke even though they know its bad. I can say that because I smoke too... haha

Hi babu10, You are so right, smoking is so bad for the smoker or the people around. I admit I am a smoker, and I am addicted to it, it's now hard for me to quit, make me feel bad, sometimes I have to go outside for smoking when I am working, I worried that maybe my boss will seen I am not concentration on work, I know it's not, but I still have this concern. I want to quit.

just to be fair to smokers i think its alright to have a few cigs every other week. but someone needs to tell my cousin that if you have asthma you shouldn't be smoking.

Hi babu, I agree that smoking is bad for the health of both the smoker and those around him. I do see some good things happening though, like fewer people smoking inside their homes and around children. I quit smoking seventeen years ago but now I wonder why I started in the first place as it`s a habit that makes no sense at all. When a person is addicted to the habit, it is usually very difficult to stop, although more help is becoming available every year. Blessings.

I understand that smoking is bad for me, but I still do it. I like it. I really don't think I will be a smoker for forever though. I have smoked on and off for about 3 years, and I feel as if I am not addicted to it. I can easily go weeks without a ciggerette. I smoke when I am drinking or out with friends, or if I am stressed out. Sometimes it just feels good. And sometimes I do not want to smoke at all, so I won't. It's always been a choice for me. When my dad was younger he used to smoke but he was the same way. One day he wanted to stop, so he just did, without any problems.

Well, I understand the health risks. But I don't necessarily think it helps you save money to stop smoking - a lot of the times, when people stop smoking - they pick up EATING (and often) - and drive-thrus, snacking, and convenience-store shopping money can add up much more quickly than a pack-a-day smoking. And what if man has no "dearest and nearest ones"? Should he then smoke?
