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 hate that i ever started smoking, it is really tough to stop and even with nicotine gum and patches the cravings continue and it becomes more and more challenging
I think smoking should be banned because there are smokers who are very insensitive to others. I am not against people who smoke and I know that there are some withdrawal that makes it hard to quit. But other people should learn to be respectful by smoking in proper places.
I my self am a smoke, I know how bad it is for you, and continuously try to quit with no luck yet. Kinda feel like I am going insane, but I know someday I shall succeed. I think if its banned it might help me quit.
In my opinion, smoking is a expensive habit to keep up. Someone once told me, if they kept save the money they spent in cigarette each year, they would be rich.
I smoke even though I really hate to admit that. I have tried to quit several times and have not been able to do it yet. My husband quit about years ago and he said that he just put it out and never picked it back up again.
During the summer my children will be at the beach. I am going to try again while they are gone. I figured if I do not have really anything here at home stressing me out then I might be able to quit this time now the only thing that might mess with me is the bills and money LOL.
I have smoked for sometime now and I am for sure trying to quit but its not as easy as just saying quit. I hope I can do it though
Although smoking is not good for you, the government should not step in to make the decision for you. As a responsible adult, it is up to you to make that decision for yourself. Smoking cigarettes and the consequences is a topic that is publicly displayed on TV, in magazines and on the internet. There is enough information out there for someone to make an informed decision on their own. I was a long time smoker and I quit cold turkey almost 2 years ago. I feel great and I am so happy that I am not among the smokers anymore.
I don't think smoking should be banned permanently. I think it should be up to a person to chose if they want to smoke. I currently smoke but I am in the process of quitting
I really really really want to stop smoking but I just can't. It's very hard for me to quit it. I think I'm already addicted. I'm so worried about what's going to happen to me.
