I don't smoke and i support the clear air campaign of the Department of Health. I just hope our smokers will be more sensitive about their health and the health of other people around them. Be LUNG-FRIENDLY dear smokers!

You said you hated people who smoke. You shouldn't hate anybody. You just shouldn't like what they do. Kathy.

No I don't smoke because I am a CHRISTIAN. A Christian means that one is a follower of CHRIST. Christ commanded us to LOVE our fellowmen and is puffing out smoke for others to inhale and get cancer a deEd caused by love to your fellowman? Isn't second smoke more hazardous that the first smoke that a smoker sniffs? If a smokersays that he has to right and freedom to smoke, doesn't his fellowmen have the right and freedom to a clean air? Also, God has created us and have given us a pure and sacred clean body. Is it not a sin against God to dirty up the clean body He has given us thru inhaling of smoke causing nicotine thereby getting sick with dreaded big C? I say that smokers are a selfish breed of people who only sees what they like and not bother to know wqhat will be bad for others thru their smoking.

I don't smoke it's already proven that smoking can cause lung cancer. Not only lung cancer and also it can cause abnormalities of other tissues in the body. I don't like also seeing girls who are smokers, for me personally it can make them cheap. We preserve our body because according to the bible our body is the temple of the holy spirit.

I would, if I could... but, couldn't yet try... I know, it's not good for my health in the long run... i'll probably try at one point to leave it... but, yet not in a hurry... actually, no denying, it gives me pleasure... and, i don't smoke much... around 10 sticks a day... so, haven't yet thought that strongly to leave it immediately...

Hi raisur, thanks for the response and you say 10 cancer sticks are not much per day wow.. i think it is far far too much , even a puff is too much.. one of my friend said about smoking is that only thing you get from smoking is ask of your health and money .. Please give it up for your sake and for the sake of your loved ones. Smoking doesnot make you look cool and certainly kills you.

no i dont smoke. and also i knw the bad effect of smoking. but i feel that it become just a habit when ppl start smoking first or second time and after that they use it to just relax them self. it just part of their routine life.......
21 Nov 09

hii asweetie i think it's too bad for health and the persons who are smokers can stop smoking only when they are shown the examples of smokers who are in hospitals for cancer treatment and are in such a miserable condition.... so i think they should practically visit a hospital and see the cancer patients there and decide about there future....

hi sandy, Thanks for the response and i donot think that would even have so much effect on the person who has started smoking because if you are from India you would know they have started to write and put photos on cig packets that it causes cancer and things like that.. and i know few doctors who smoke when they have seen so many cancer patients..so it has to be banned..sale banned everything good.

hi shooyao, thanks for the response and this is so good that you dont smoke even when ur sorrounded by smokers but u must know second hand smoke ( passive smoking) is more injurious to health so please donot be in same room with anyone smoking but you can be with them outside..usually chances outside are u wont inhale smoke.

hi cuterita, thanks for the response and yes smoking gives no advantage but takes away your health and is a slow and sure path to grave and the path is filled with lots of diseases.. yes we should try to downgrade smokers so they give up.
