Smoking is injurious to health - its a known fact and every one aware about it. Perhaps many people still knowingly live with it and many more are getting attracted.

Many Governments and NGOs are trying to kill the smoking and use of tobacco but the usage is growing day by day. As per the media stats every year thousands of people dieing or effecting with cancer and other similar diseases.

Can't we do anything against this? We can not ban tobacco products because it is one of the good revenue source for the governments and thousands of people living on these products. The only alternative is to educate the people who got and getting attracted. 

I tried to post some good advertisements, which tells about how it kills us. I am happy if at least this attempt makes any people to think over it before lightening a cigarette.

It is not a big task to quit smoking. To start with, just think about it how it is killing you in both the ways, health and financially. Now a days cigarettes also become an expensive habit like liquor. The authorities very cleverly putting more taxes on the end product whenever there is any agitation for banning the product. One way they are getting the sympathy by giving message as due to this tax hike people will avoid smoking the other way they get huge revenues. They better know about the public weaknesses.

Just think the ways to quit it. That itself is a great victory.Don't carry the cigarettes with you. It tempts to go for more, if it is available with you readily. Buy each one whenever you want smoke, so that at least you can avoid one or two attempts per day. Use half cigarette instead of one whenever you want to have it. In that way you can increase your half of loosing to be life. If you decided to quit don't wait for dates, it may be year starting day or your birth day. Just go and tell your family that you quit the habbit and see the glow in their faces.

      Hello theindianblues. I came back to read this hub, because I too quit smoking a couople of days ago. I wrote a hub on that. As you know me I quit drinking over a year ago with great success and no cravings. I hope the same thing happens with me now quitting cigarettes.

      Great Photos here too. Thanks

      Hello Bed Bug, I sensually could understand your pain and loss caused to you because of this bad habit. Completely agree with you over this topic and as you requested to the fellow smokers, it has to be educated by all of us to the smokers community to quit smoking to save their lives and families as well.

      Hi Bed Bug (?), hope you become bit emotional, I can understand your feelings. Yes you are right, I too lost an important family member because of this bad smoking. We should educate people on all the platforms and would appreciate for the initiation which took by theindianblues.

      Hi indianblues Thanks again for a great Hub. You are so right about just how harmful this killer habit is. As you know I finally quit drinking alcohol and now if I could only quit smoking. I'm going to give it a big try. Goosh if I can quit cold turkey drinking I'm sure I can do the same with smoking. Plus you are right the price is out of this world. I said I would quit when the cost went to $1.25 and still smoked. I'm going to go for it. Bye the way the pictures were great too.

      Thanks for sharing with us!

      Hi many times I tried to quit this but failed always as you said. Now your hub made me not to think for once again during my coming birth day. I am in the first stage of thinking firmly to quit this habit. Trying hardly to reach the second stage of yours.

      I would like to see glow in the faces of my wife and little daughter. Let me see and pray the god to help me in getting success in leaving from this smoky area.

      Thank you brother or sister (?) theindianblues for bringing up such a nice hub to save our lives.
