Advantages and dis-advantages of SMOKING?
9 Jan 07
i wrote a paper for my bro last sem about smoking. did you guys know that smoking has some health benefits? however, these benefits are outnumbered by the health risks. Smoking in low dose (lets say 4 sticks or less per day) serves as a stimulant to people. meaning it makes a person feel awake and active. but then there are really some people who are used to chain smoking. with regards to them, the result is vice versa. it makes them feel sleepy and the like. are you familiar with the degenerative diseases that occurs in aging like dementia parkinsons and the others that is connected with the body's acetylcholin. well here's a fact. smoker has a lesser risk to have one. as ive said its health disadvantage is innumerable like heart diseases, pneumonia, emphysema, pulmonary tuberculosis, COPD, cancers, and a lot more.

HI!..well..eventhough you know the disadvantages of smoking, still, youre saying that.."I really like to smoke"..Since youre at a young age, your resistance to sickness is still high. but when you aged between 35-40, maybe youll feel now the disadvantages of it..Maybe you can smoke but only moderate, why not try every after meal..Smoking is really not good for the health..you said the you feel calm whenever you smoke..but i think, thats just psychological..because you made it a habit..So if you love yourself, and your lungs, hope you can quit it early..and that good for you and for the betterment of your life..Anyway thanks for choosing me as a friend..

i agree to yr point that it does makes me calm when im nervous, esp chain smoking b4 an interview/ presentation; which i perceive is due to the fact that it reduces my rate of my heart beat. Having smoking for 7yrs, it really costs me a lot of money. Esp, in singapore, where a packet of Marlboro cost S$11.50. Heavily taxed and with the government discourages citizens to pick up this bad habit, it really makes smoker less welcomed.

I don't agree people to smoking. it is bad habit. you know smoking is harmful for health, and especially for women, it is more potencial risk for the baby. And some people is like to smoking in public, it make the other breath the second smoking, and it is more harmful the other people health, so the goverment to ban smoking is acceptable.
