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've smoked since I was around 12yrs old, both my parents were smokers and I thought it was cool, I am 45 now. I was smoking 2 packs a day up until Thanksgiving morning 2013. I woke up got my coffee and fired up my first cig. of the day and it was my last. I went into a coughing fit that lasted almost an hour. I coughed up a fist full of the blackest foulest smelling stuff that you ever seen. That scared me really bad. I went and bought an electronic e-cig starter kit and tried that. Now I only use vapor and I am a lot better off for it. It has been over 2yrs now and I don't have that hacking smokers cough anymore and I have slowly regained my stamina at work and at play.
Im trying to stop smoking.. its soo hard. :( I dont know how many times ive tried. If the patch was just a bit less it would be very helpful
One of the things I dislike about Japan is they allow people to smoke INSIDE the restaurant. Sometimes they'll separate the restaurant and have a "smoking" and "non-smoking" area, but for small restaurants, there usually isn't that option. It really sucks. I don't want to be eating while inhaling second hand smoke.
I got hooked in smoking at age 16 because of my friends. That's why I am telling the kids today to choose their friends because friends have great influence on them especially with vices like smoking, drinking and gambling.
I smoke and do not apologise to anybody about it. I'm very respectful and will NOT smoke around young children and pregnant women. If I don't know you and I want to smoke in your presence, I'll ask if you mind. If you do, I'll even leave the area and walk some distance away to enjoy my smoke. I also barely drink. I think at the moment smokers are public enemy no 1 and everyone is eager to highlight the ills of smoking. That's alright, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I won't apologise for my habit and you won't ever catch me trying to convince you of the positives because I know there are NONE. But that's the choice I made, the consequences of which I'm well aware of.
I don't think that smoking should be banned permanently because to be honest although it is harmful for our health and the environment; ostracizing smoker's is discrimination and that's terrible! We need to all respect each others rights and different opinions really...that's the only way that we can live with each other!
I respect the opinions of those who prefer not to smoke. But do not discriminate those that do, because in the eyes of the law, they are STILL not doing anything illegal. Putting up a smokers area seems to be a good compromise, but completely ostracizing them such as banning them or telling them to go to unreasonable distance to smoke is still trampling on their rights. Mutual respect and consideration should always be in mind.
smoking is a disgusting habit that i wish people would stop doing. it's just basically putting a cancer stick in your mouth.
I AM TRYING TO GIVE UP SMOKING NOW, IT'S NOT EASY BUT I AM DETERMINED. WISH ME LUCK THIS REALLY IMPORTANT TO ME.
I am so glad that I gave up smoking 10 years ago. It is good that laws are in place to ban smoking in public places. The children today are lucky that they do not see smoking as the norm. I see less young people smoking than when I was younger.
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 do not smoke and I do not like to be around people who smokes. Smoking like so many other things are not good for you. I do not allow my children to be around who smokes.
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.
