Hi 2jessica,
Smoking cigarettes causes various diseases because they contain nearly 4000 chemicals and hundreds of toxic substances. The toxic ingredients in cigarette smoke travel throughout the body and causes damages in several ways. Nicotine is found in every part of a smokerís body with the carbon monoxide affecting blood cells and preventing a full load of oxygen from being circulated in the system. Cancer causing agents damage genes that control growth of cells. Visit this website to know more about the effects of smoking:  newbielink:http://smokingharms.com/ [nonactive]

If you need a why there are many.

1) You stink!

2) You have been all but shunned in the eyes of lawmaker's business owners and the public in general.

3) Ciggies are astronomical in price. I mean you could pay for your kids' college with ease by not smoking.

You may want to quit but you are just not sure how to do it. You have heard how tough it can be and are worried if you have the will power to stop. I know, I get it, I have been where you are and now I am on the other side. I am a non-smoker. I have climbed that mountain and am now the person I never thought I could be. A non-smoker!

Well done Hugh, but do please remember, there are none so righteous as an ex smoker. Without fear of contradiction I can say that the non smokers I know are far more tolerant than the ex smokers.

Don't get me wrong, smoking is a bad habit in every sense and I would always strongly discourage it. But damn it all, I enjoy a smoke sometimes and I will not be dictated to by some bunch of do gooders who actually benefit from smoking to the tune of £3 billion per year! That's the difference in the cost of treating smoking related problems (£5 billion pa) and the revenue from tax on tobacco (£8 billion pa).

Perhaps alcohol will be the next target of those do gooders, and why not, since there is a net cost to the nation of £5 billion pa, as a result of the £13 billion pa in medical, policing, judicial etc costs against £8 billion pa in tax revenue.

If we in the UK all stop boozing and take up smoking, we'll get the national debt under control in no time at all. He said 'tongue in cheek'.

I guess it depends on how you define "I know" but you haven't seen me on a bad day.

And the govt. has plans to raise the (minimum) price of alcohol with the hope of reducing consumption.
