Hello all,

How many topics were started here to discuss about smoking? Just count the locked topics so far. It is better if all the opinions are collected in one place, isn't it?

Thanks for the topic.
I really hate smokers.They not just cause themslves to cancer
but also hurt other people.
I think it is really necessary for the government to ban smoking
in public places especially where there are a lot of women and children.Even at home smokers should smoke in a special room for them where there are no one but smokers.
:?: How many countries do you know in which smoking is banned?

In Italy a rather recent law bans smoking in public places (restaurants, shops, offices, etc.).
Smokers say they feel emarginated, but I think it's a great thing, because in the last months cigarette sellings have been reduced and this is good both for smokers' and non-smokers' health.

haven't you noticed how smoking is becoming a bigger and bigger problem with time? Personally I think it only means that many people finally realises how dangerous and harmful it is for the society. What if the whole world smoked... can you imagine what would it look like in some 10 years? An utter disaster! We should appeal as much as we can to stop as many people smoking as it is possible. It's for the whole health of the earth and its population! smoking should be banned worldwide! amen!

Many problems are taking a worrying extent, they are becoming "social".

The problem is the addiction, or even the habit without addiction. (habit is, in some meaning, an addiction).

- smoking
- drinking alcohol
- watching tv
- watching porno
- consuming any drug (cocaïn, LSD, etc.) [in popular talking, "drug" can mean any thing that you become addicted to, not only real drugs]
- playing video games
- foruming
- tchatching
- obedience (becoming slave of any person)
- money games (games with stake which people, society or culture gives credibility/value to)
- money (earning money, or not giving any money, avarice)
- etc.

Let us think about difference between habit and addiction.

Habits change.

Addiction make you prisonner.
