I can tell you are not a smoker just because you ask the question:-) Most smokers smoke because they have to not because they really want to. Most have tried to quit at least once and many are just resigned to their fate. Nicotine is a highly addictive substance
The trick to quitting is not to give up giving up-- it takes most smokers at least three tries before they manage to kick the habit
