Smoking -why why why??Watch
Did you know that a single fag releases millions of free radicals, of which one alone, in the right place and conditions, could cause cancer
Well I'm not squeamish in the sense that I don't relate those images to what's happening to me.
I believe I'm more likely to get cancer from the mobile phone mast planted 50 metres from my house than from my smoking!
You don't have to understand....people smoke because they want to.....that's all you need to know.
I can't speak for everyone, but I started smoking at a stressful time in my life believing it would relieve the tension somewhat.
Costing around £2 billion in health care I believe.
It doesn't work that way, I considered myself a 'social smoker' believing I could stop at any time but when I tried to I found out I couldn't.
Might be a good idea to let the smaller children experience the pain of smoking-ie stinging the throat from one puff, but then they get the idea of never touching the thing ever again.
Smacks of smacking!
The smell of cigs upstairs on buses used to make me physically sick as a child, but hasn't done me any good.
My uncle used to be a real chain smoker went through like 3-4 boxes per day. then one day he thought, fk it, and went cold turkey for a month, and never had the urge again. Took up drinking though...
I definitely don't intend smoking forever, I need some kind of bolt from the blue to make me give up, such as the missus threatening to leave!
I think they should just bann the little death sticks, but if they did that, then there would just be a black market in ciagarrets.
Its a complex problem.
Why do people do it - I'm completely at a loss. I really cant understand how people get into it knowing what it does to ou and why they aren't horrified and disgusted at themselves? Why would anybody what to self inflict cancers, having no money and smeeling foul on themselves!!??!! Any smokers out there? shed some light on this for me...
it is very addictive and it is easy to say for non smokers that they are stupid that waste money, self inflict cancer etc. i will never understand how strong the addiction is for some smokers, but sometimes i think that if their addiction is as large or even a part of my disgust for it, it is strong. then i understand better why they smoke. don't know if that made sense at all, but what i wanted to say is that it is easy for a non smoker to say that smokers are stupid or something cause they smoke (or in any other addiction for that matter) because if they have never really experienced it they won't understand it.
