    Because it relaxes you. It is easy to become addicted to smoking cigarettes because of the nicotine. It always makes them feel better and calms them down. It helps deal with the stress of life. They are going from seeing the world from the eyes of a child to the eyes of an adult. That's pretty horrific right there.

    so many things cause cancer so if we actually wanted to do something about it, smoking would only be a minor thing. the food we eat, the vehicles we drive and the things we use everyday cause cancer. what i find strange is that smoking has went down by about 22% in north america but lung cancer is rising.
