I understand that smokers can't stop, or have huge difficulties to stop, because tobacco is addictive, and of course, manufacturers are doing everything to keep you dependent. But what I do not understand at all is why people START smoking ?
Everybody agrees that smoking is deadly dangerous, that it stinks, that it makes hideous teeth and fingers,… so obviously there is NOTHING appealing or tempting at all.
It's not even cool looking ! Okay, in the early age of cigarettes, you had some figures which were admired by people, and they looked cool with their cigarettes under the sunset. But today, can you tell me who looks cool with a cigarette ? When you see someone with a cigarette it looks like trash, and gross !
And, it's incredibly expensive ! What a waste of money !
So why do people start smoking then ?
I don't get it.

I feel like teens, who are just starting to smoke, are doing this is rebellion. This is forbidden, this is dangerous, so they do it. This is typically how teens are thinking and behaving.
Just a thought.

For the same reason others are drinking alcohol, taking drugs, etc... This is a way to escape your anxieties and worries, but at the end, it's adding problems to your problems. Time bomb.
