what should you do if you smoke quit don't quit ?????

I Think that if you smoke you can't quit because it is hadr for men to quit.

Definately quit. Visit cancer patients for motivation. Join a support group.

Keep smoking...it's job security for those of us who treat cancer, emphysema, heart attacks and strokes...

keep smokin

Join the forces of the Smoker's Rights and take sides against this social war.

hopefully you will quit. I just quit after smoking for at 18 years, but ten years as an everyday smoker. just because it's not killing me immediately, I don't want to do it slowly either..My reasons for quitting were: my own health, my fiancees health, children shouldn't see it, it ruins the environment, a the smell of stale smoke is nasty!

just smoke. i almost have enough marlboro points for that iron lung!

I myself am a smoker and I find it rather difficult to quit. I am always around other people who smoke too, so that doesn't help much.

how old are you that sounds like something a child would say!but quit quit quit


i would recommend that you quit

Its your choice- but I would quit- smoking ruins your life, and everything in between.

You've answered your own question by submitting this under Heart Diseases!

just quit

Smok'em if you got'em

Quit. . .like yesterday already.

I quit at least 20 times a day. And I'll die painfully because of it. It's hard. But if you can, don't EVER start, and if you made the same mistake I did, have more control over yourself and your life and QUIT for good!

I don't really get why people smoke anyways.

Just quit. Try anything. Just try to quit smoking before your lungs quit on you. And you really don't want that to happen...

Quit. From one who smokes.

i quit three month ago and i feel great

QUIT! Save lungs. Save money. You'll have more money to spend on cool stuff. Save time--no running in and out of school, work etc. to have a smoke. Spare your loved ones from icky-tasting kisses on the lips.

Quit! On the pack it says: IF YOU SMOKE THESE YOU WILL DIE. Pay attention people.


Why do you bother to ask? You know you should quit.

What are u "REFER"ring to smoking? Cigs are bad mmmmkay? I should quit...

I smoke, and I do plan to quit, just not right now. Too much of a crutch for me.

Eva Mayer
Don't start

Definitely quit. I transport a lady to chemotherapy everyday because she got lung cancer from smoking.

No brainer.
1) Smokers are at a MUCH higher risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, high blood pressure, amputation, etc.

2) It's an expensive habit. There are a lot better ways to spend your money.

For a given person, it may or may not be easy to quit, but that doesn't mean that he/she shouldn't keep on trying until they succeed.

Well, you decide for yourself after reading below of what smoking truly does to people.

Cigarette smoking is the major cause of preventable deaths in the U.S. On the average, people who smoke die 5 to 8 years earlier than people who don't smoke.
Tobacco users, and people who live with smokers, have nearly all cases of lung cancer. Their risk of developing throat, mouth, esophageal, pancreatic, kidney, bladder, and cervical cancer is several times greater than for people who are not regularly exposed to tobacco smoke. Smoking is the major cause of emphysema, a debilitating lung disease which slowly destroys a person's ability to breathe normally.

Smoking is especially hazardous for people with:

• heart disease
• blood vessel disease
• diabetes
• high blood pressure
• high cholesterol
• family history of these diseases.
Smokers, and those living with smokers, have a two times greater risk of fatal heart disease.
Smoking also increases the risk of having a stroke. Women, especially those over 35 years old, who take birth control pills and smoke have an increased risk of stroke or heart attack. Increased blood pressure is another danger of smoking. Smoking also decreases HDL, or "good cholesterol" levels.
Smokers and people living with them have a two to three times greater chance of having peptic ulcers. Smokers also have a greater than average risk of hip, wrist, and vertebral (spine) fractures. In addition, smoking complicates sleep disorders. Smokers also tend to get colds and other respiratory tract infections more often than nonsmokers.

Tobacco smoke is dangerous to nonsmokers. Exposure to the smoke, also called passive smoking, increases the risks of nonsmokers getting the same problems as smokers. A nonsmoker in a very smoky room for 1 hour with several smokers inhales as many bad chemicals as he would inhale by actually smoking 10 or more cigarettes himself. One study found that the rate of lung cancer among nonsmoking women depended on the amount their husbands smoked.

Smoking affects pregnant women and their unborn children. Smoking mothers have a greater risk of miscarriage and stillbirth. Children born to women who smoke have lower birth weights on average. They also have more frequent respiratory infections, a higher risk of chronic ear infections and asthma, and less efficient lung function. Recent research suggests possible links between maternal smoking and attention-deficit disorder (hyperactivity) in children. Investigation also continues into the possibility that cigarette smoke exposure may be a factor in SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). Children of smokers usually become cigarette smokers themselves.

The more cigarettes a person smokes each day, the greater the risk of disease. Switching from cigarettes to a pipe or cigars may not lessen the risk of disease if you continue to inhale. Cigar and pipe smokers are at the same risk for cancers of the mouth, lip, larynx, and esophagus as cigarette smokers. Fortunately, when a smoker stops smoking many of these risks decrease.
Users of snuff or chewing tobacco ("smokeless tobacco") increase their risk of cancer of the mouth. The mouth cancer can develop relatively quickly, within 10 to 15 years of the first use of snuff or chewing tobacco.
