We once had a president that is alcoholic, President Erap used to check in at Dusit Hotel in makati drunk. We also had a president who doesn't only smoke cigarettes, but he smoke huge tobacco.We even called President Ramos, President Tobacco. And we did't even care and dare to ask those late president to quit their vices. Then why will we ask Noynoy now to quit smoking?

If we are really concerned with his health then we must ask him to quit. We all know that smoking is really a bad thing. It causes bad effects in our body. And we don't want our next president to die of lung cancer. But its really up to him if he wanted to quit or not. At least we did our part by telling him to quit.

I do agree with you. After all he will be our president, So we should be concern about him.

It is entirely up to Noynoy. Hey the most important thing we should hope for will not be Noynoy quitting smoking, but how he does as a president. Erap was not the one which helped the Philippines. But, for Ramos he did a lot of things to improve the Philippines, for one we became a tiger cub of Asia. Now, we are the sickest man of Asia. Hopefully, NoyNoy will do something and do what he promised to do, to make the Philippines a better country.

The topic here is do we really need to ask Noynoy to quit smoking. And we all know what is important, that is why we are asking this question. Try to read the discussion first and understand it. So that you will not be misguided about the topic here. Anyway thanks for the reply.

i agree with letran, why just now with noy and they seem not to mention or talked about the two other former presidents. although i think that the DOH has a point in saying that as president, he should set as an example, people are not that stupid to about their lives. if they want to quit, they will quit smoking because they want to not because the president is not smoking, or he quits.

Smoking is their way of life and it is only them who can stop themselves from smoking. For as long as Noynoy will not smoke in public or during public sessions, then there is nothing wrong with him being a smoker. This does not mean that I like people who do smoke.

I think to quit President Noynoy Aquino from smoking is doesn't matter. Its depend upon him if he don't want to take care of his health. The important is made his work worthy. Become a responsible president of the Philippines, and make changes to the present situation of the country. Especially the poverty that experiencing by the most Filipino people.
