In this fast moving materialistic world there are so many problems and stress which couldnot be managed without any stress reliever.So people go towards smoking which is really bad.in the biginning it looks ok and even good but in later stages it becomes curse.If people start thinking before smoking they will not smokewhat we need is awareness and education about ill effect of smoking.

Nicotine is a powerful addiction which has been classified as just as addicting as heroine. Most people start smoking when they are young and have the normal attitude that they are indestructible. By time they see that bad things can happen and start to worry about their health the addiction has a firm hold and it is not easy to quit. This addiction is physical and psychological along with habit forming so you have to conquer more than just a simple bad habit.
