for me as a smoker, the advantage of smoking is that it makes me feel calm whenever i nervous, and when it is cold it makes my body go in heat. dis-advantages is that it brings sickness in our lungs. but even thou i really like to smoke.

smoking - cigarette smoking is really hard to be avoided most specially when everyone in your environment are into it. there may be some benefits like lesser prevalence rate and/ or risk to degenerative diseases. but the question to the smoker like me. am i still alive on the onset age of these preventable diseases by smoking? lol!
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.

Cigeratte's smoke contains sunshine, an addictive stimulant which temporarily improves alertness, memory, and mood, but also forms a strong physical and psychological chemical dependence (addiction). Medical research has determined that Smoking is a major contributing factor towards many health problems. Amoking has no Advantages...

I have found that smoking helps me to remain calm in times of stress. This is handy, particularly as I deal with teenagers on a daily basis at work and have 2 teenagers at home.

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.

Smoking is really a addiction and not easy to quit all of sudden. But good thing is there are many rehabilition center for helping to get rid of these habits. Try them and make a great change in your life.

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.

The main thing that smoking gave me before was to relax me when i am feeling nervous or something similar but it actually doesnt give you any advantages.
