Drinking is far worse than smoking. You can kill someone drinking and then driving. It's impairs your vision and your reaction time to things. It can cause health problems such as liver and kidney failure. I am not saying that smoking can't kill you because I know it does in time. Alchol can kill someone in blink of an eye such as drunk driving. Everyone reacts different with alchol. Some people can be mean, nice, and sometimes dangerous when drinking. It really depends on the person. Smoking is very habit forming and so is alchol. Alchol in my mind is a much harder habit to break than smoking. Some people cannot go a day without drinking because they think life would be boring without it. It can be a very bad addiction.

Well I do neither. Because they are both worse. But it is true that drinking is more dangerous.

Drinking is okay as long as it is moderate. But smoking is more dangerous I believe, even if you moderately smoke.

HI MYLOTTERS,personally i hate both of these drinking as well as smoking, drinking is really a bad habit i've seen people loosing their senses whenever they are drunk n sometimes people get so very aggressive while drinking n start yell at other people without any reason n about smoking i would say that i hate it's smell n whenever person speaks his/her mouth stinks that leaves a wrong impression on personality...so i recommend both the things n both are very-2 hazardous things to life..............

Both Smoking and Drinking are injurious to health. I will definetly cause serious health problems. drinking is equivelent to smoking 10 times a day. These are very bad habits and leads to addiction. I think both somking and drinking should be banned by individual governments.

Ur... But I still think that smoking is far more worse than drinking. Here in CN, drinking is popularly accepted by us, what's more, we take it for granted that proper drinking is good for health. While it is not the same to smoking. (My first post in Mylot,haha...)

I don't drink and I don't smoke. I agree that drinking or being drunk is very unpredictable but choosing which is far worse than the other is very much situational. In drinking you affect only yourself unless you're drunk driving with someone else inside your car and or your disturbing your neighbors peace while drunk. In smoking you affect not only yourself but also the others around you. Also, in smoking even if you don't abuse it you're still polluting the air of people around you. Therefore I can say that smoking is far worse cause abuse it or not your killing yourself and the others around you.

I think smoking is most dangerous , because when you smoke you have no limit in where you smoke or why you smoke , its slowly killing you

Hi tuckersheri. Well. It is a very hot discussion. Both the habits are very bad and are injurious to the health of not only the users but also others nearer to them. However these bad habits are spread over entire world and there is no scope seen in the near future that these bad habits would be eradicated among the human beings. The more publicity we give for this eradication the more speed it picks up among not only the youngsters but also the elders. The number affected by these bad habits increase day by day. Peoples awareness only is the way out and we do not know when that day will come. Let's hope for the best. Thank you for the opportunity. BEST WISHES.

agreed, driving is a terrible habit, you can kill people. You dont have to drink to do it, driving kills people, it also polutes the air and drains the world of its limited resources. Drink and smoke as you like but the earth cries, please stop driving

I think drinking is more dangerous. Most smokers especially these days are much more considerate not to bother those around them with their smoke. I know it is unhealthy but drinking can kill or hurt someone in the blink of an eye. It causes relationship problems and ruins families. It doesn't just hurt the drinker, it hurts everyone that is involved with that person.

I think drinking is worse also. You can smoke and drive right but you cannot drink and drive with your full thoughts and awareness. They are both bad for your health though, but drinking is much worse.

Hi Well, Both Smoking and drinking are not Good but i do agree with u that Drinking is worse than smoking if compared, Smoking can be called slow poision. While with drinking, if u r over drunk, u lost ur concious and sure driving is killing but other than that u can hurt others as well Take care
