Should I quite smoking, and why?

no its cool to smoke all the cool dudes do it

Firstly, yes you should defiantly quit smoking. With all we know now about smoking and the health risks it brings, you would be stupid not to. As for the why, just look at the cover of the packs you buy and they tell you many reasons to quit. Even though quitting can be tough, you need it stop.

Wow...nafmeister has no idea what he is saying. Smoking isn't cool at all. It's a gross habit for both men and women. Nothing attractive of smoking.
You should quit. You are not only slowly killing yourself but those around you. [2nd hand smoke is also very bad] Plus, your wasting a lot of money on cigars. Even if it doesn't seem like it...it adds up and you end up spending hundreds of dollars in a year or more just on cigars. Plus, once you get all sick cause of smoking your ganna have to pay big bills for all the medication and things your ganna need.

For your health & the health around you..QUIT!

darling E
u only live once, so live as long as u can

No. Just be prepared to cough a lot and produce phlegm, become short of breath with the simplest activities. And better pack a bag so you'll be ready for the hospital when you can't breathe and call 911.
Oh yeah it's so cool to cough while your kissing your bf.

Smoking is a habit that can get out of hand. If you go to any anti smoking website, you will find that cigarettes have so many carcinogens in them. Carcinogens are cancer causing substances. I think there are about 40+ carcinogens. The things that cigarettes can do to your health outweigh the "cool factor" that many people put on smoking and tobacco use.

I used to smoke and got emphysema/copd in my late 30's and am now on oxygen and waiting for a lung transplant. Copd is the fourth leading cause of death and is caused by smoking. 20% of those who smoke will get copd. It is not worth the risk. If you are single you will only have 25% of the people to choose from to date instead of all because only a smoker will go out with you. Your smell and breath will be highly offensive to the other 75% who don't smoke. So why would you want to smoke? How does it enhance your life. Like remember the time we smoked and we --------? No you don't remember because nothing good or fun happened, it just slowly robs you of your health and vitality. I did not get to the part of what it does to your heart yet.........

WHY did u even start??
You need to quit because smoking makes you age faster, makes you stink, and it destroys your lungs. This can cause lung cancer which can kill you. Whether it takes a few months of smoking or many years, it can kill you. And it won't be a pretty death.

to become or stay healthy,to stay looking your age,to live longer,to feel better in yourself, to have more money,to stop poisoning yourself and loved ones,because by asking this you want to.good luck.....james.f

Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body and diminishes a person’s overall health. Smoking is a leading cause of cancer and of death from cancer. It causes cancers of the lung, esophagus, larynx (voice box), mouth, throat, kidney, bladder, pancreas, stomach, and cervix, as well as acute myeloid leukemia (1).

Smoking also causes heart disease, stroke, lung disease (chronic bronchitis and emphysema), hip fractures, and cataracts. Smokers are at higher risk of developing pneumonia and other airway infections (1).

A pregnant smoker is at higher risk of having her baby born too early and with an abnormally low weight. A woman who smokes during or after pregnancy increases her infant’s risk of death from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) (1).

Millions of Americans have health problems caused by smoking. Cigarette smoking and exposure to tobacco smoke cause an estimated average of 438,000 premature deaths each year in the United States. Of these premature deaths, about 40 percent are from cancer, 35 percent are from heart disease and stroke, and 25 percent are from lung disease (2). Smoking is the leading cause of premature, preventable death in this country.

Regardless of their age, smokers can substantially reduce their risk of disease, including cancer, by quitting.

You may need help doing so, but its better if you DO stop

Quit! It is not cool! It can kill you! If you want to live longer than stop! You can get lung cancer from it. Don't listen to anyone who says its cool because it is not, its digusting!

Well that depends. How good is your relationship with, oh... I don't know...your lungs!?!

quitting is a hard thing smoking infrequently is nothing wrong smoking a pack of cigarttes in a day or lesss is extremely unhealthy and will shorten your life and may cause death earlier due to respiratory diseases

"Kh a a a a a n n" ! !
quit! it may save your life

Linkin Park Fan
Yes I would if I were you. It could save your life and give you better health. Even if your friends do it I would stop.
