You know to me it is a choice. I smoke. GOD help me! I know everyone looks upon smokers as leppers these day. We are excluded from everywhere. When I'm ready to give it up I will, but I hate all the hype about it. As I said it is a choice; if you choose not to smoke good for you; if I choose to smoke it is none of your business. :roll:

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?
yes ....I KNOW YOU hate smokers if you didn't smoking....because it's worse when you ate the second-hand...but I'M sorry. I'M a smoking-guy....I don't know why i would like to ate it ..but maybe my job pressure so big and leading to me somking..I ALSO know smoking would harm our health...even cause cancer...but it's so diffcult to stop it once you somking ..now I SO regret ...of course ..I DIDN'T smoking when have women and kids in here...I ALWAYS smoking in my home or after work.....

why are people so obsessed with smokers? It is useless to discriminate people as smokers and non-smokers. I don't smoke, and I also think that there must be smoking and non-smoking areas in public, but it is a personal choice and it is legal. If people enjoy smoking, let them smoke, instead of hating them.

It took me long to find this topic. I'll say why.

Yesterday in the Parliament the memebers have started the discussion whether Russian Federation should join the WHO FCTC - Framework Convention on Tobacco Control

I'm not a smoker, suppose hardly will ever be. Without any concern about others I pay no attention to other people's habits... what for actually, but government does... to my surprise!

-Smoke consist subtance nicotina and CO2..nicotin is a substance will make people addicted.
-Firstly..they must have an aim that they really2 want stop to smoking from the deep heart.okey.. :mrgreen:
emmmm some suggest, maybe they can change smoke with chew candys
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why are people addicted to smoking? Can you suggest some ways to help smokers quit smoking?

-The negative effects are cancers of lungs, impotent, disturbance for women pregnance,etc.
-Smoking in the public make the other people smoke , why? cause the people will inhale smoke from smokers..
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What are the negative effects of smoking? What do you think about an immediate ban on smoking in the public?

-i agree..Good decision.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As we all know, smoking causes al lot of health problems. In order to protect the health of the human, Hong Kong government is going to ban smoking in all restaruants and bars. What is your opinion?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

yes, smoking should be kicked off, because of its bad ingredients. once we form into addiction, it must bring many illness on us. the lung cancer is the outstanting resulting from smoking. however, man should encounter more serious pressure in daily life, they should seek some outlet to make them relax. most of them choose smooking ,the others tend to drinking. but another group of persons like smoking and drinking. which are all bad for the health. so how to cope with their addiction. in my minds, as a man, he can drink some alcohol during his dinner, which can offer some good ingredient for him, and can help the drinker more relax. however smoking must be kick off firmly, which is not only bad for smoker, but also not good for the people nearby.

No they still show hundreds of Russian channels here. Maybe they don't show some extra nasty ones anymore, I don't know but they still show so many of them that I don't watch tv. at all because It may remind me the existence of Tora if I see russian tv. and that's obviously something I don't want. :lol:

Before 2008 we could watch RTR and Channel 1 here, but they were all blocked for non-payment from Russian's side as stupid officials say here. I personally don't watch local stupid channels any more. I've bought satellite in order to watch Russian channels, and I know many people who did the same since the channels were blocked. (местные каналы просто ужас, ни одной нормальной передачи нет)

And we're complaining here that there is nothing to watch on TV! :lol: Well, I suppose there are just three channles that are possible to be watched and evade spitting - Sport, 2x2 (cartoons rock) and Culture channel 8) and I'm not that picky as you think

P.S. I'm leaving your fisrt question without response :mrgreen:

Smoking is a practice where a substance, most commonly tobacco, is burned and the smoke tasted or inhaled.Women who smoke increase their risk of dying from lung cancer by nearly 12 times and the risk of dying from bronchitis and emphysema by more than 10 times. Between 1960 and 1990, deaths from lung cancer among women have increased by more than 400%--exceeding breast cancer deaths in the mid-1980s.(Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report 1993;42(44)) The American Cancer Society predicts that 80,000 women will develop lung cancer this year and 67,000 will die from it, as compared to 43,500 deaths from breast cancer.

Men who smoke increase their risk of death from lung cancer by more than 22 times and from bronchitis and emphysema by nearly 10 times. Smoking triples the risk of dying from heart disease among middle-aged men and women.(CDC Smoking-attributable mortality and years of potential life lost--United States, 1990. Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report 1993;42(33):645-8.)

If u smoke a ciggarete u lose 15 minutes of ur life,nd 4 minutes of persons that r with u.

this issue is related to political and economical problems.although all mass media and all international health organizations explain about the dangerous effects of smoking on healthy and fittness , most people are used to doing that because of sudden stress, deprssion ,the pressure of economical issues in their life

hello
Smoking is the the inhalation of smoke from burned dried or cured leaves of the tobacco plant. Generally People smoke for pleasure, for ritualistic or social purposes, or for self-medication, as well as to satisfy a physiological dependence on nicotine. Everyone knows that smoking is injurious to health. The main health risks in tobacco pertain to diseases of the cardiovascular system, in particular myocardial infarction (heart attack), diseases of the respiratory tract such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), asthma, emphysema, and cancer, particularly lung cancer and cancers of the larynx and tongue. Passive or involuntary smoking occurs when the exhaled and ambient smoke (otherwise known as environmental or secondhand smoke) from one person’s cigarette is inhaled by other people. Passive smoking involves inhaling carcinogens, as well as other toxic components, that are present in secondhand tobacco smoke.

You know what, I envy that you don't smoke. I have smoked since I was about 13 or 14 and still do and I'm almost 18.

I think all of you non-smokers are so smart for being proud of not smoking.

I remember when I first started smoking. I hated the taste, I hated the smell, plus I looked stupid. I still did it any ways to replace some other things I wanted to get rid of.

Eventually I got used to the taste and smell. I was addicted by then. I craved them. I used them as a time passer.

It's not worth it dear. Curiosity's good but curiosity can also kill the cat, as cheesy as it sounds.

There will never be a valid reason why someone smokes.

Keep up with the non-smoking dear, it's more attractive. I've always heard, "What guy wants to kiss an ashtray?" or "Who wants to walk by someone who smells of smoke?"

Smoking causes hair loss, baldness and bad breath smell. It is not good for health and environment too. Hair transplant surgeons recommend quit smoking before and after hair transplant surgeries. The habit delays healing process and recovery after the surgery. {-:
