the strategy of making people have a lot of what they want to get rid of has remained of choice not only by common men but also by physicians and psychiatrists. It is an important tool used for behaviour modification. So I agree with those of you who sujjest to make the addicted youngsters continue smoking without pause, no matter how many cigarettes are taken, they shouldnt stop until they feel nauseated. This will be the last day for them to think about smoking without qualms. :lol:

There are several ways in order to prevent people from smoking and in top of them is the warning messages which can be hung up on every wall of every building whether it is at work, universities, shops, and so on. These must be horrible and frank as it must contain the fatal diseases that smoking may lead to like lung cancer, and tuberculosis and as noha said it must include some pictures of the two lungs (lung of normal person and lung of suffered person). Also, the symptoms of these diseases must be mentioned.

Hope this could be helpful!!!

It might get into some young people, I think. It's because advertisement industry is really powerful. If advertisements didn't work, business companies wouldn't spend thousands to millions of money to advertise their products.
I don't know about others, but for me, they sure work. I remember in one summer I saw a posting of some girl was holding her ice cream. It was a hot summer and wherever I went, I would see that posting so I finally ended up buying that ice cream's kind. :lol:

Some people say neither yes nor say NO... They just take the cigarette! And the consequences of smoking aren't unknown.

So I do agree with you: the power of our own will, mind and body is the only progressive cure to break with the habit. :wink:

So say NOOOOOOOO to smoking. :evil:
But say it aloud.

And beat your tongue whenever you feel like smoking. :lol:

I think that the teens are affected from the wrong fashions to smoke, want to do something by themselves. They want to be freedom in their life as a result they smoke the cigarettes. However It is the best way to stop young people smoking. We don't control them but we have a good choice in order to solution this problem. I don't smoke, dislike a black smoking because of very bad for health. In this case It was made the cancer very harm and risk to be the disese in lung (cancer). Smoking is not good anyware. Additionally It was made around people to be annoyed for them. I can say that it is worth for themselves. I rarely like when someone is smoking a cigarette I immediately go away because of smell the black smoking. It just my opinions only may be right or wrong. Your kindness should be good for me if you sugest me thank for your ideas to show on this bord. Talk to all later.

If none of these reasons are relevant for them, at least they should consider the beauty aspect: it spoils your wonderful smile. :mrgreen:

comprehension of the "I am smoking" fact

Postby natel » Wed Mar 16, 2005 9:51 am

I have read all the messages containing the opinions of the members of club about smoking. I don't agree with some of them. One of them: "the family influences a lot on a person". So my parents don't smoke but I do. My cousin's parents smoke and she doesn't. I can find a thread here: I never felt smoke at home so for me to test a cigarette was something new, interested that I have never tasted before. She (my cousin) inhaled smoke since her childhood and she started to hate it inside her mind and she understood by her second ego she would never smoke. So she doesn't smoke now. From this example we can see the influence of the family on the person but it's a negative impact. I can not see any other impact provided by family. I have a good family. My mother is a teacher. When she knew that I smoked she tried to explained me in an understandable way that it is a bad habit. I understood her but I didn't give up smoking. You should understand that everything depends on a person himself. It much more worse when we try to make somebody give up smoking. A person's nature is arranged so that if we make him/her do something he/she will do it conversely. The comprehension of the fact "I should give up smoking" must come itself. The other matter is that it can come too late.

simple solution...

Postby sky888walker » Thu Apr 14, 2005 11:39 am

Issue the following regulation:

Everyone can smoke but he/she must use closed helmet whilst smoking and no smoke may leak out until he/she is finished smoking.

Any violation of this rule, should be beaten 100000000 times.

lool

Good way sky,
I don't like smoking, It's terrible.
I think the government should make strong laws, ang force people who smoke has to pay for their smoke very expensive price. It's a kind of fee to make the air cleaner, or invent to poor countryside to improve their environment, and also to protect environment.
Thanks.

I have another example: my father smoke a lot. I don't smoke and never try, but my brother smoke. I don't think only family influences on a person, it depends on many other things (may be some stress situation) or people who are near :!: .
Of course, smoking is not good, but every person makes his own choice. It's neccessary to give an advice to the person who begin smoke, but not prohibit!
...Be happy...

how to stop

Postby Anin » Tue Apr 19, 2005 1:32 pm

Well,
I do agree with that opinion about the will. It is the most impostant thing when one wants to stop smoking. Without the strong , iron will nothing helps.
And referring to smoking children I would say that the same thing, although in their case, the strong will should be used to resist the outside pressure (friends, mass media estc.)
Anyway, the example from parents is also extremely important. :tick:
Hi I am 18 and I would like to change my opinions with you.

Try nicotin patches. They should be the ones that help although most cases they don't, but who knows.

Not too long ago I read a newspaper article about smoking in Germany. It said that approx. one quarter of all German 15-year-olds smoke. There is a project in Heidelberg, called "No Butts". It wants to bring teenagers between 12 and 17 to a hospital specializing in lung disease and give them a firsthand look at the devastation caused by smoking. They interviewed the project leader in this article and he said that the shock-tactic education often has an immediate resonance and many attendees leave his seminars vowing to quit. So far so good ... but he added it often fails to translate into quitting smoking :( They also try to reach and educate the kids who have not yet started to smoke.

I think smoking is a habbit. Young people are easy to be changed by the ones around him such as friends, parents. We can teache them a good living habbit by TV or other media. This might be the best way.

My cousin got curious about smoking when he was 10. He started smoking around that age and not only smoking cigarettes, he tried to smoke other things also. He's addicted to smoking; it's not just a habit to him any longer. Now it's become a must-to-do thing. He can't go for an hour or two without having a cigarette. I think when people get addicted to smoking, it will no longer be their habit or their way of getting out their problems, it's become a must. Really dangerous. That's why I hate smokers.

Hi LennyeTran,
Truly, it is quite difficult to quit of smoking. Maybe the longer the smoker is, and the more difficult the quitting is. But I think it should be much easier when he just began to smoke, since it was not a must-to-do thing yet.
Most of young people were just curious when they started smoking. They didn't know whether it is right or not, or what effort it is. Although you told them, most cases they wouldn't listen to you.
If we made the no-smoking become a style of life or even a fasion, then we could change young people easily.

This is true.

Well, I don't think I would tell my kids whether smoking is right or wrong. It's because they don't give a ***n if it's right or wrong when they want to do it, to me. The more you forbid it, the more they thirsts for a desire of breaking your rules. Don't you remember a time that you crave yourself to break certain rules??? Well, I have :lol: . The best ways, to me, are take them to a hospital so they could have a talk with smoking people who are in treatment for certain diseases because of smoking, show them pictures of diseases that cause by smoking, spend time with them more to keep an eye on them, tell them how many bad chemicals a cigarette has. The last one is quite uncertain since some kids are weirdos (no offense, mommies and daddies out there). I'm afraid they might say, "cool! I'm a living experiment of smoking. They should pay me for smoking." If it happens, I don't think I could find myself saying something beside freaking out.
