Smoking is one of the most addictive habits known to man. It is a
highly addictive habit that is often the culprit for a number of
different health problems. Millions of people die from smoking related
diseases such as heart disease and lung cancer each year. Smoking can
also be blamed for cancer of the stomach, esophagus, and even of the
bones. It can cause people to have difficulty breathing, walking, or
even talking. In addition, smoking is quite expensive with the cost of a
pack of cigarettes increasing constantly. Many restaurants and public
places have banned smoking, and it has even been banned completely in
public places in some states.
Smokers can sometimes feel discouraged if they want to stop smoking.
Once you pick up a cigarette, it can be extremely difficult to quit,
but there is hope: quitting is not impossible, and is actually quite
easy for many smokers. With some help and a bit of determination, even
people who have been heavy smokers for years can finally quit for life.
