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?
I am so thankful that this is one bad habit I never picked up. Not even as a teenager. I am 25 years old and have never smoked a day in my life and I am proud of that,
There will never be an answer to whether smoking is bad, good or should be ban or allowed. All I know is that I would hate to think of some of the wonderful, intelligent individuals I would have never had the privilege of knowing had I based my decision to get to know them based on "Oh, they smoke, and I don't" or "I don't want someone with that nasty habit in my life"! I have been blessed with some of the most wonderful people in the world that, coincidentally, also smoke.
I quit smoking about three years ago. I feel the urge to start up again when I am super stressed out, but I try not to start up again.
I am a smoker myself and know how extremely hard it is to quit and hope that I can one day
i dont think there are as many smokers these days as they use to, you really dont see younger people smoking that much with all the bans on smoking most people cant smoke anymore unless they are home anyway
I feel like smoking isn't for everyone but it is for some people. Personally the smell just makes me gag
I donot smoke and donot like being around smoke. I say that because they are addicting and expensive. I cannot pay 5 or 6 dollars for a pack of cigarettes
I have seen people smoking before and they become so different after a while. If you try to talk to them sometimes they get upset because they don't have their cigarettes in their mouth. Think about your friend if you smoke... would they want that in the first place ? I don't think so.
