    Simply because i don't like the way i am. I want to be really skinny and even though my weight is average (weight: 54kg Height: 5.2ft), but i still feel that am not as thin as my friends.
    So? Thin isn't better. Look at it like this, your friends are most likely twigs if they're skinnier than you and you're just about to start going down that path.

    Your 'friends' won't be at your cancer stricken bedside in 20 years time. Grow up seriously...

    So how come you see so many fat people smoking? Quite clearly it hasn't helped them to lose weight.

    You can't just 'trust' yorself to stop smoking once you start. It's a physical addiction; nicotine binds to receptors in the brain and that gives a good feeling. But then your brain makes more of these receptors so you need more nicotine to get the same feeling as before. So when you've been smoking for a while, then try to quit, it's even more difficult because there are more receptors crying out for nicotine. Giving up smoking is difficult, don't kid yourself otherwise.

    How common is that then? Does it happen to everyone who quits?
    Well in my experience yes. Most people try replace smoking with eating more to keep them busy. When my mum and brother quit they both put on some weight, and it took my mum quite a time to lose it afterwards.

    Seriously?

    I don't know but i think i trust myself and i would be able to quit it. Am saying this now but i really don't know to be honest.

    Well saying as you don't seem to have the willpower to either eat less/or do a small amount of excercise weekly I doubt you would be able to quit it.

    Apparently a lot of athletes who don't require any endurance (weightlifters and the like) smoke due to it's supposed appetite suppressing quality. Though, it goes without saying that this is far from being a healthy way to lose weight.
