If you have ever seen or known of somebody who has died from lung cancer, you would know it is a terrible way to die young.

I have known several. All of them regretted taking that first puff of smoke and every one after.

Smoking is verg dangerous. It causes cancer (mouth cancer , lung cancer, blood cancer, toungh cancer etc )

I would love to quit. I started as a child sneaking them from my parents. It was much more prevalent back then. It has hindered me through my life, especially when I was involved in martial arts. Out here in Az, one must be extra careful too as everything is so dry a fire could happen if you don't dispose of it properly.

About six years ago I finally quit smoking inside. Not sure how much that will help me in the long run, but non smokers find it more agreeable now.

6 years wow. If you have survived that long then you're finally off the chains......on the long run you'll be fine because you've come along way already.

Thanks for stopping by

my husband was addictive, but since marriage, he quit from that bad habit. I am really happy, and he hates the smell of cigarette now.

... I am applauding to the courage writing about this "sensitive" topic, because in our society it's often "challenging" to come up with a "winking shout out" about "overthinking main stream adoptions, etc." ... -_-

Like maaany other ways of "dealing with mental issues" it's smoking, that has "endured" for a long time now ... although there are studies showing that a major "awakening" happened after the evidence of "danger'ing other people, too" with the own smoking habit ... !

Thankfully our systems are getting "re-thought" by ourself more and more, so we realize any compulsion, etc. as a re-action via "replacement/compensation/substitute" for something deeply suppressed in our minds/souls ...

Healing the inner interferences can help reducing "attachments" to anything "un-healthy dealing" with things we experienced or phases in life we ( have to ) go through ...

well said thanks for stopping by

I've seen and talk to many sick people and they said they would rather not smoke if they could turn back time. So please quit, for your sake, for the sake of your loved ones!

Well said.

I used to be a chainsmoker back in the day but have now limited it to occasionally only. Cant wait to finally stop lighting a stick. My partner still smokes though. I will definitely share this with him to convince him to at least limit his smoking habits. Wish us luck!

Smoking is really addictive.
It takes a strong mind to say no.

Good luck

You are very right, it is so; Cigarettes, pollute the environment and also degrades it little by little, in people there are many diseases that can produce cigarettes, tobacco. Particularly I do not see much science to inhale smoke, however, there are still people who do it and do not realize the damage that is doing them and others around him, hopefully all people who smoke could stop doing it. I loved your post, it was incredible to read it, thanks for sharing it with us.

Great post!
Keep it up!

My son just recently quit, he'd come over and ask if I had snacks laying around, anything he'd say to keep my mind off cigarettes.

this would sound believable if there was any citation.

Its gotten from lots of research.

i bet if i pissed in the liter of water with the fish in it or swept abit of rubber dust off the road for it or even just leave a fish in a liter of water it will still die.

from time to time,
now and then,
now and again :)

there is a price to pay for that pleasure, but personally ,it is a deal I am willing to take, smoking is wonderful, we should embrace technological advances in the smoking industry, because ultimately the problem is the combustion of non desired substance.

Вы не правы! Все долгожители курят сигареты и живут до 120 лет и более
