I don't smoke but my sister does and that worries my mother. Some people are addicted and cannot simply quit. If no one would sell them, smokers would be able to quit because no one would supply them, at least that's what my sister said.
I don't understand how people can even like smoking. I've tried several times to see what's the feeling and it's disgusting! I remember stealing cigarettes from my father and sharing with friends Oh and we ate some horse radish leaves to cover the smell of smoke in our mouths

This sounds really terrible, and I'm not justifying myself by any means ... but to put it simply, I enjoy it. A lot of people don't understand how you can possibly enjoy inhaling dirty smoking, but I enjoy the relaxation it gives me, coupled with social situations, such as nights out and chilling between lectures.
I do think of the health risks at the back of my mind, but like a lot of smokers, I think a lot of it comes with you don't believe it could affect you at that moment, so you shove it at the back of your mind - even though deep down you know full well that it will eventually affect you. Also once you've started, it can be very difficult to quit, especially if so many around you smoke.
I always smoke in secluded places if I can or around people who smoke themselves, so others don't get affected by it. Im not proud of it at all, but it's something I do.
