I spoke with smoker before and asked him why do you smoke while you know it's bad for your heath , he said I enjoy it I love smoking , after he said that I was speechless .. if someone doesn't want to quite smoking then their is no point in keep promoting anti smoking stuff , just let those who want to smoke smoke .. you only live once so it's their choice .

The only thing that might perhaps keep people from smoking is to increase the price for cigarettes as high so people have to chose between buying Food or buying cigarettes (because their monthly income won´t be enough for both). And even then I´m pretty sure that there are people considering to rather starve than stop smoking. Sad but true.

I think it's effective for those who started smoking because of peer pressure I once had a senior in school who smokes but discourages us from following him. I asked him why he smoked then and he said peer pressure. Such campaigns may work for people like him who already know the cons of smoking. He just need some social encouragement to really kick the habit.

I was in an apothecary in the states a few weeks ago and a woman purchased a carton of cigarettes. The cost was 60.00 USD. And this was in an area of the country where tobacco is grown and sold and manufactured in the south. I can only imagine what that costs in Miami, San Francisco or NYC.

60USD gets you 6~8 packs of cigarettes in my country. I still think it's too cheap though hahaha :X

I can't imagine spending that much money on something that ruins your skin and your insides.

People will always do stupid things sigh. It smells disgusting too.

There are still businesses who allow smokers in Seoul. I've got a whole host of allergies and I just can't stand it. My twin brother smokes and one of my older brothers. I make them go outside.

why only smoke? this country needs ppl free from alcohol more than any other country.

tkindavong BitHun Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Probably this country makes a lot of alcohol while cigarettes are mostly imported?
