if smoking is dangerous to the human health, why do most people continue to smoke and why isn't the government doing something about it.

There are lots of dangerous things in the world. I wish all the governments in the world banned weapons forever. I´d love that countries did not meddle in other countries´ personal issues. I´d love pweople to respect others. I think that if all that happened, a smoker would not even think of smoking in front of another person. As to each one´s health, I suppose it´s their choice.

Smoking is very dangerous to our health and it is more dangerous than drinking. I dont like both drinking and smoking,but i tried it once in my life when i was studying in college.I find nothing special in that ,so i decided not to take it in my whole life.Both smoking and drinking is injurious to health and it is better to keep away from this bad habit.With out banning such products,it is very difficult to keep people away from this bad habit.I thing the government of any country ban it,because they dont like to loose revenue generated from it .There is limitation in a waring the people about the hazards that caused by this had habit.Self determination is the best method to keep away from this.
