Let us begin the Sunday with a poll! :smile:

Smoking is harmful to health and despite it so many people are addicted and can't stop with it.

My questions to you for everyone who wants to response:

Have you ever smoked or at least thought to start with it?
If you started with it in what in age you did?
If you have smoked: was it so tough to stop it?
Do you smoke to reduce stress?
Do you think that there are better alternatives given to reduce stress?

Sorry, but I can't discuss smoking without including Fenella Fielding...

PS. Never smoked, family have never smoked, close friends have never smoked.

When you grow up with parents working in a hospital/the Fire Service you learn by osmosis to avoid smoking, drugs, excessive drinking, drink-driving, speeding etc...

Wonder who’ll hide behind anonymous

Have I ever smoked or at least thought to start it?

No never, ban that harmful sheet for good.

Do I smoke to reduce stress?

No and why would I use smoking as stress relief a box of 10 costs like £20 nearly £22 to £24 where I live people are wasting nearly £90 of their money on a useless harmful sheet like that.

Do you think there’s better alternatives given to reduce stress?

Yes speaking and exchanging amongst your loved ones, meditating. Venting your frustrations and clearance of mind. What does an addictive substance that you have once which’ll then lead to multiple times how will that be beneficial.
Have you ever smoked or at least thought to start with it?
No.

If you started with it in what in age you did?/If you have smoked: was it so tough to stop it?/Do you smoke to reduce stress?
N/A

Do you think that there are better alternatives given to reduce stress?
Of course there are. Refer to post #5.

Not so bad, keep going. You have a stronger will than all my family members who were smoking: they couldn't stop.

Neither could my dad. Breathing out of a hole in his throat at 53 before dying at 59. That isn’t going to be me.

Smoking is bad for your health like you said.
You'll find people not having the will power to try and quit smoking. Some people just suddenly stop smoking and then you'll have those who takes ages to stop but they soon start again.

I think that health professional staff should be showing example of stopping smoking first as they are expecting everyone else to do it but they continue to smoke.

Never smoked but me Ma and Da did. Me da stopped after an iliofemoral bypass donkeys eyars ago - he'd already smoked for a long time at that point,s ince he was about 11.

My Ma stopped a year and a bit ago after being in hozzy with COVID-related pneumonia and sepsis.

Lung cancer killed both my Nans, I;ve never been after smoking at all. My lungs are ****ed enough without giving them that to contend with.
