Well I have been smoking for about 10 years now and from the day one I knew that smoking is bad and dangerous for health but started it in fun with my college friend and now its one bad addiction for me. All my stamina is ruined and if I run, I end up in breathing heavily. I have tried many times of quitting this bad habit but never succeeded. I hope I quit it before my life quits.

i think people start smoking to express their manliness(in case of males)..on the second hand want to enjoy their life .. i know that most of them start smoking by thinking that they will stop it very soon,,not to continue very long time.. but then they understands that this is difficult for them to stop..

i think some people smoke just to show off. When people start of young it is nothing but show off. They think smoking is very cool. I hate this sttitude. And this leads to addiction. Thats what i feel!

When you are young it is a sign of rebellion to smoke as it isn't allowed and your parents don't like you doing it. Some kids then get addicted to the nicotine and can't stop doing it. It makes you feel good and then you want to keep doing it all the time. I think because the health problems are long term and don't affect them immediately its hard to believe that they are actually going to happen to them.
