why people keep smoking?

well i really dont know why people ( smokers ) keep on smoking.. maybe it's already their habit to smoke.. they are already used to it... I really don't know why they smoke, maybe just showing off to people that they are "astig"( a Filipino word)or maybe just to prevent their body to feel cold or being sleepy...

It is an intoxicant and gives the smoker pleasure initially they start smoking just for the fun of seeing the smoke coming out of the mouth and the smoke rings they are able to create and since it is an addiction they cling to it and are unable to leave it even though they know that it causes cancer. very unfortunate indeed.

I'm not sure why but this is probably the several hundred thousandth time I said that I was going to quit smoking over 10 years. Luckily this is the closest I've gotten to kicking the habit...1 or 2 every so many days and hopefully I just won't smoke ever again. Only because I began to care for my health and once I started cutting back and noticing how much more fresh air I could inhale...I made it a goal to stop smoking. I can't lie though, after a fulfilling meal or morning coffee, there's nothing like lightin one up.

I guess it's just an addiction that they find difficult to give up and whenever they need to bust their stress or need to find an external expression to their mental state they turn to smoking.It takes extreme determination and a willingness to give up the habit.I have known a few smokers who have turned non-smokers and are proud of that.

Some say it's a good stress reliever after a long day's work. Some say's it relaxes their tired and stressed life. Other's just for fun and to be "in" with friends who are in the same habit. Few say it's tradition and it runs in the family. There are many reasons why some people smoke. Only now that smoking has been declared hazardous to health and the habit of smoking has been tolerated for ages in society. I guess it's hard to break an old habit by just telling them that they are at risk from getting cancer in smoking. Only those that are just starting to learn the habit can be prevented from getting it as a habit. But for those that has been long addicted to it, it's their own discretion to decide if they want to continue the habit or not.
