Good day mylotters, I am just curious why many people like smoking well I know they read the warning about smoking can kill, but still there's a lot of people still smoking and even the youngster is getting addict to it, I know nicotine is one reason why smoker gets addict to cigarette. But what about those who not smoke, those people who are not really a smoker but later on their in to it. What are the things that keep pushing these people to smoke? what about you are a smoker? when is the first time you smoke, what pushes you to smoke? I hope people realize the effect of smoking. If you are a smoker can you give a good reason why you are smoking and the benefits you get from it? I am not a smoker because for me, there is no positive side in smoking, first I waste money to buy a cigarette, then it can cause tons of different disease mostly cancer, what's good about it anyway?

ive watched them many times. ive even posted them on my facebook profile so as my friends and everyone else could see about it. adictions go beyond ... adictions make people not care.

yes you are right it is a cancer stick.The number of deaths from smoking are increasing rapidly every year.I myself is a non-smoker but there are a lot of people whom i socialize around with are smokers so in ome kind of way i am getting harmed too from the second hand smoke.Its my will power that keeps me from smoking and its ill effects.I also read a Book which was on Diseases which one can get due to smoking, it was like many hidden diseases which one is not aware of that smoking can lead too.Its kills and everybody know it but the fact that they still continue smoking is that it does not effect on body instantly it takes time years to show its effects, its some slight illness in initial years but no big trauma. A survey has also proved that the most caused disease from smoking which is cancer is likely to develop only after the age of 50 years or more unless its genetical and sometimes late in 60's or 70's when they have lived thier life.So that is the main reason they smoke away that little sticks.

you are right, they still smoke because they feel nothing wrong inside their body even if they smoke, people don't know about the long term effect of it, well I guess some people know that but still smoking.

Yes i do smoke even when i'm aware of its harmful effects. I really don't know why i'm still smoking. It's really hard to stop. Take it from me, if you know someone who's planning or just starting on smoking, stop that person. It's hard to get out.

If you really want to stop from smoking, I can suggest a way but I think its hurt, try to eat spicy food then smoke it will take your appetite in smoking, well I just watch it from old movies. you can also start mind setting your self that its only a waste of money and It may harm your body, you can watch in youtube about what can you get from smoking, you'll see many video about what will happen to your body if you smoke in that way you might destroy your appetite in smoking.

I started smoking over 30 years as a teenager because everyone thought it was cool. I continue to smoke because I like to smoke. I have no health problems and it's something I choose to spend my money on. I have no personal reason to quit at this time and everyone knows that quitting doesn't work unless you are motivated to stop.

well there's nothing I can do about it, since you are smoking I think you should be careful because the effect of smoking is not instantly. it takes time. as of now I you don't feel anything wrong but we are not sure that it will remain till you age, well enjoy life the way you want it.

You are correct, even 2nd hand smoke is dangerous to one's health. I don't smoke myself since I am asthmatic. My husband smokes but he smokes outside our house. He told me he likes to smoke a lot because he crave for one. I told him to just chew on candy but he says it is different. Oh well, I respect his wishes so I let him be as long as he smokes far away from the children and me.
