People know that smoking is bad for our health, so we hope our friends may not smoke for their health sake. But once you smoke, it's not that easy to quit it. I don't smoke. :)

BanBan, you are so right! It's really hard to quit smoking once when you smoke.

No I donot smoke! I have asthma so it would not be good at all for me to indulge in smoking. When I was young my mother would drum it in my head that if "I smoked it would damage my health." She said it so many times to me that I believed it and and I never attempted to snoke. Smoking seems to cause some health problem for most people and it's an expensive habit. A lot of people may begin when they're young and find it difficult to kick the habit when they get older and start to see the results of smoking to their health. We've all been educated about the dangers of smoking but still there are a great many people who smoke in this society. I hope that it will eventually be a practice that will be banned completely.

I am an inbetweener at the moment. In other words I made the decision to quit 6 days ago and so far so good. I am using patches this time as it is hard to quit without now. I also know the risks of being a smoker, but agree with you that the addiction makes all those thoughts go out of your head, when you need a smoke you need a smoke. Here is hoping I can stay quit this time.

Hi, elly1384. No, I don't smoke. I never will either. I know that this is a habit for you. But you just want to be careful while smoking. It can really do severe damage to your lungs as you continue to inhale and smoke continuously.

I just took a quick read of yours, I think they are different enough so neither should be deleted, at least i would think. I'll probably respond to both of them in fact.

Hi, friend. Yes. I am a smoker and sometimes I hate that I smoke, but I just can't quit smoking. Just like you - I always exuse with my habit. I tried many times to quit smoke but I couldn't... I always start to smoke again and I know that smoking kills me, but I still smoke.

Hello Elly1384 We all have habits. I know friends who smoke. I try my best not to make them feel bad. My dad smokes many year and my ex-in-laws smoke. It is very bad habit to break. My ex-in-law mother got cancer of throat and could not eat because of the traeament and be fed intravenously and after she was cured she went back to smoking. Your freinds do not realize how addicting it is. It just like for people who love food and sweets like me. I love my sweets and can not stick to diet. I refuse to go on diet. If I go then I go. I am not overweight but just average but I love icing and sugar and soda etc... I do alot walks becasue I do not want get diabetes which both my parent got in there 60's etc. Thanks and have a Great day Sincerely unique16
