In the world No Smoking day, do you smoke or do you abstain from it the whole day, and for those who do not smoke, do you prevent the love ones to stop smoking for the day? I have a boyfriend, he smokes everyday and when I told him to abstain from smoking for one day he cannot,he said he will wait for the next year to abstain for the one day. How discouraging! So what about you and your opinions about smoking?

I know it is frustrating and discouraging too as you love him and care for his health too, I just wish he stops slowly but surely. My boyfriend also told me that next year he will make an effort to reduce the number I just wait now.

I think we have to start with our surrounding itself where we must prevent people from smoking in many public places and hence avoiding air pollution too because if someone does not smoke,he/she gets the smoke too as the one who is really smoking.

Now my boyfriend says he will not smoke in front of me or around me and like this he will be able to stop smoking completely because I will always be around to watch him, maybe an effort will be wonderful though.

To stop smoking is a hard thing. We should be mentally prepared to stop on the spot. Where as I think it is easier to stop smoking gradually. by smoking less every year, until you smoke none.

It is a good way too as my boyfriend also says, however I wish he understands fully that smoking kills and I am genuinely very worried for his health and for the problems it can occur to him, I love him a lot and cannot bear to see him suffering because of any problems the smoke is taking surface everyday. I hope he will not smoke next year on the day of No smoking day.

I smoke & think it's noone's buisness but mine. I think it is ridiculous the way people have acted about smoking & the ones that use to be smokers are the biggest hypocrites of them all. I don't want to offend anyone w/my smoking but i don't want to be offended about it either. I know it's not good for me but people do alot of things that aren't good for them. They don't try to stop a person whi is obese from going out to eat. Can't u just see them refusing to let them eat in a restaurant because they are too fat.

It is a nice remedy I have asked my doctor and he says one must do a lot of exercises and eat lots of fruits to stop smoking so I will surely be telling it to my boyfriend.

smoking not only reduces our ability to work but it also make us sit down on our knee before the habit of smoking.to quit smoking or any other habit one requires a good will power.without it any bad or good habit cant be quited.but nowadays the effort required on the part of the offenders has been reduced to the great extent.one only needs to take an initiative.there comes a nano card(developed out of nano tecnology) .we need to place this card in the packet of cigrattes and the harmful substances in the cigratte would be absorbed by the card.
@med889 (5958)

This is indeed too great if this card is selling out, many people who wants to quit will find it easy to do so, I am worried for my boyfriend's health, well if only he can understand how bad it is to health.

I also hated the smell of smoke but I really don't know how I could fall in love with a smoker though now he is smoking less compare to four years ago, I hope one day will finally comes when I will hear him says he has stopped smoking.

You are right because I also think that putting till tomorrow is never going to work so one must have the will power to be able to continue in this path of no smoking.

Smoking can damage our health. It is not good to our lungs. But no matter how we take care of ourself by not trying to smoke, the effect of environment beyond our control. Just like you, it is more risky to be as a second hand smoker... If your boyfriend is smoking while you are around, you are more than a smoker. When we go to public places like bar, street, and malls smoking people is around. We inhale what they inhaled and exhaled as well.

This is what frightens me a lot because there are many times he smoke in front of me and even in the bedroom or in the house so I do not like it and when I told him,he said okay he will smoke outside the house however the matter is not only smoking outside but stop smoking because smoking kills with all the diseases it bring.

In any argument, we cannot find good reason to smoke than pleasure. We cannot deny the fact that smoking can cause illnesses or damages to our health. So those people who want to smoke, they are choosing between health and pleasure. When we where born on earth we are not already born as smokers. Smoking were just introduce in the world. So smoking is not natural and in fact can be considered as a unnatural phenomenon. People were being addicted with smoking because at first they try in using it with their different reasons, until such time that they became addicts.There is no question that quitting from using this thing is hard, but it can be done through a process of abstinence and adjustments, if the smoker really wants although in a long process and in a long time.

Health is more important than pleasures I believe so I always insists that smoking kills finally and to quit smoking is not very difficult if we have a will power to do it. I always tell him that if he really wants to quit he can and we are all with him though but so far no response from him on this topic. I came to know that his father was a hard smoker too.

I am terrible, as I too am one of those people who still do smoke... I actually wish that I could give up smoking, but as yet I have not succeeded. I tried the patches that my Dr. gave me, and ended up smoking with them on... My Dr. had to stop me using them before I had a nicotine overdose.... If I could afford it, I would love to go to a hypnotherapist and stop smoking that way... I hope that I can save up for it one day in the future.

Hello there, well I know how difficult it might be to stop smoking, I just wish my boyfriend can do it slowly but surely as I am very worried for his health. I wish you all the best too.

Smoking is bad...none of my family smoke, so I quit since my wife didn't like it..my daughter even said that she would start smoking if I wouldn't quit.. Well, I just stick to bubblegum now. You should like, show your boyfriend pictures of the side-effects of smoking, they are all over the internet..he might be scared and stop smoking.

I don't smoke and I am in way too proud of myself that I never started using cigettes as most of my friends use them.It sounds stupid for me to spend so much money on something that destroys my body.I talk to the people I know but once they have become used to smoking it is almost inpossible to give it up.
