Cigarettes are a huge part of many people’s lives and a familiar sight in today’s world. The Mayan civilisation chewed tobacco leaves and smoked, but they also mixed the tobacco leaves with other plants and herbs to make medicines. Columbus was probably the first European to see tobacco leaves and the first one to introduce tax on tobacco was King James I of England.
Even though tobacco was very much enjoyed in the ancient world, the first health warnings began in the 1950s. Today, the tobacco industry receives negative publicity and the people are informed about the addictive and deadly effects of smoking. In spite of all the warnings, a good cigarette is enjoyed by many around the world.
What do you believe, should Smoking be banned permanently?
Despite the adverse effects of smoking the governments of the world continue to leave such industry unrestricted and unprohibited. Thousands are dying each year from various cancers and health effects caused by smoking but this gigantic industry bottom line goal is to make money at the expense of human lives.
Even though I know that I need to quit smoking and I will before it is too late, hopefully. I wish you could still smoke in public places,especially restaurants and bars.
I believe I read somewhere that people with depression are more likely to smoke because it helps them deal with anxiety. I kind of understand that. It's a terrible habit and I know I'm setting a bad example.
I love the smoke of the cigarette but I really tried not to smoke because I know smoking is dangerous to our health.
I smoke. Do I known its unhealthy for me? Yes. But it is what it is. I also think the only people that should get to speak on the matter of quicking are people who used to and have given it up.

I can't stand smokers and I used to be one. Well, it's not so much the smokers, it's the smoking. People are okay as long as they are considerate. The problem is the smell sticks to a person no matter how considerate they are and then it bothers others. Give up, people!
I smoke and have for over 30 years. I'm not really worried about cancer. You can get cancer in many ways and I also know a lot of people who have never smoked and still got cancer.
I think its a little hypocritical to outlaw cigarettes and make marijuana legal. I do respect others when I smoke, so I feel others should respect the fact that I enjoy it.
