Why some people use cigarette?

Cigarette smoking is one of the most common vices among men and women alike. Young or old, they seem to think it’s a good idea to smoke. Well, it’s not. And I simply do not understand how a sane person might think otherwise. I even tried one to find out what the fuss was all about—like when my friends tell me it’s hard to quit or whatever. I didn’t cough or choke, but I didn’t like it either. It felt like sucking in pollution straight to your lungs.

Aside from the disappointing taste (because I actually thought it tasted good, what with all the people going crazy over cigarettes), it also gives people bad breath and poor health. Not only does it affect the smoker himself, it also affects the people around him. It adds to the air pollution and people who accidentally inhale the secondhand smoke will also be affected—I think many will agree that smokers who are aware of this are just a little too selfish, should they continue this bad habit.

Yes, smokers may have a reason why they simply cannot quit, but is that reason good enough to make them risk their body, their health, the wellbeing of others and of Mother Earth? I don’t think so.
