i have seen many people who smoke inspite of knowing that smoking is injurious to health.what prompts them to do this?why?is it because of mental depression or the pleasure that they get from smoking or is it difficult to give up such types of habits....what could be the reason for this...?????

Most people smoke for nothing..i mean just ..they are addicted to it.i have asked some of my friends regarding this and the most replies comes ..just..Smokers are real nuisance ..they just smoke in the public forget to note that there are many people surrounded who will also be affected by this.But this habit can be controlled only if a person is willing to quit himself as nothing is beyond the control of human.

I think it is a combination of all the factors you mention. Smoking is addictive both mentally and physically. Addicts to nicotine like any other believe they cannot get through the day without their regular fixes! The health implications long term are easy to ignore based on the daily consequences of giving up!
