Smoking harms our health. It causes cancer, heart diesease and all those horrible stuff. Will you start smoking even if you know all of these already?


... etc ...

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.

oh no, not necessarily just think: smoking is a habit and people who smoke are mostly addicted to smoking, isn't it the same?

Badly, sadly, pity, many people don't care about it.

And they waste time and money and energy in too many useless things.

but it's actually not our concern what the others do with their own money. it is pitiful indeed to see how they spend all their fortune on drugs, ciggies and alcohol...

Let you think about not only our own health but even the health of the society, the health of the nature.

Yes, I think more about the global than the local.... maybe for the compensation against the "excès" in individualimus.

Inform yourself by google (or libraries in your country).

About ccuntries that interest you.
About sciences that interest you.
About society problems that seems you important.

Think about how you can change it, how you can act.

Be patient and active.
