    Some ideas that affect why we can't quit:

    1.Some actually like the taste after a cup of coffee or a cocktail
    2. Some have Addictive personalities
    3.The chemical in the cigarette causes the person to go through withdrawal, thus requiring a smoke, per say
    4.Habits are hard to break
    5. The chemical helps those who require pacifying to satisfy that need
    6. It is clearly a choice. Everyone knows it causes cancer, more health issues.

    Hence anyone who smokes should pay a much higher premium for health insurance. I do not see the need to support a choice of cancer of death.

    It takes two weeks typically to break a habit and create a new one.  During those two weeks of stopping, the chemicals in the cigarettes are trying to leave the body and can create short term problems that the stopper thinks is worse then smoking.  Also, for some people it is how they deal with stress, plus the ever reliable "I won't get cancer it happens to other people" syndrome.

    The answer to this question is nicotine, the drug found in tobacco. The body becomes physically and mentally dependent on nicotine.to quit smoking, one must overcome this. It depends on the persons will power, whether he can overcome this or not.

    I will answer your question ... when you realize, that "drinking" is a far more destructive thing, than smoking.

    My hubby is a smoker...he has since he was 15 and he really doesn't want to quit. he enjoys it and, being the logical guy he is, states that more people die because of stress related diseases (i.e. heart attack, high cholesterol/heart disease, etc.) and smoking relieves his stress.  I'm not going to fight him on it. 

    I also heard that smoking helps with digestion...not sure if this is 100% true, but many smokers I know really enjoy a smoke before they go to the bathroom...perhaps it has a similar effect as coffee?
