I myself being a tea-totaler am curious, on what motivates people to smoke. Is it the style, the smell or a methodology to counter tension. It is a request to all the smokers. Please put light on this for everyone else who is wondering to know why you people do so. Cheers, {:-))

Most of us started smoking as children or young adults. There is nothing pleasant about smoking that motivates us to do it. It's addiction that motivates us to smoke. Pure and simple addiction. Most people will tell you they smoke because they like it. It's not a lie. They believe they do like it. The truth is we like no longer feeling the discomfort of withdrawal. :) Hope this helps you to understand.

Why i smoke? Really hard question... Maybe because i´m stupid enough. I start smoking 5 years ago, it´s many years smoking (in my point of view) but one thing i´m sure if i knew what i know today i never started smoking.

Smoking is really a addiction and not easy to quit all of sudden. But good thing is there are many rehabilition center for helping to get rid of these habits. Try them and make a great change in your life.
