Why do people continue to smoke despite knowing the bad affects it has on one's health?
Euthanasia is when someone ends their life because they longer want to bear the pain, that is illegal in the UK. Is smoking not just the same thing but as killing yourself, but doing it slowly?
I have heard that it is not a problem if you smoke when you're young, and that problems will only become evident if you smoke until your 30s/40s. Is there any truth behind this, if not should the government not try harder to tackle the problem of smoking related health implications?
I smoked for five years and I was a slave to cigarettes. It took me five years to realise that I would not buy food that blackens my stomach with tar, so why should I do that to my lungs. I realised that I was buying bad health and a nail for my coffin every time I purchased them cancer sticks.
Thank goodness that I quit.
