    Why should I quit smoking?

    As I love to do it; apart thinking from my health point of view there is nothing. I enjoy it.

    Simply, because your mother doesn't like it. And there's nothing more enjoyable in this life than making your mom proud, happy and satisfied.

    You may be enjoying it. But you don't know how much others can get disturbed if there is a 'smoker' around.
    For example we get the smell of cigarette smoke from the apartment below and it is suffocating and intolerable. Finally I had to go and tell my neighbors about our problem.  Luckily they were receptive and apologized.

    ....then continue to smoke then. No one here will tell you it's a good thing for you. The best answer is to STOP. Not only are you harming your health, but the health of others around you as you smoke. Honestly, if your mind is made up, then continue to smoke. Only you, and only you will be able to make that decision. It's  YOU and only YOU. YOU have to be willing to do it.

    Well, no one can convince you to quit if you don't want to. But, from my experience with smokers, it's like walking with cement shoes. With all the bans on smoking, they really can't go anywhere. And, with how expensive it is, they can't afford to do anything either. It's a sad day when cigarettes are a uncompromising part of the budget but food is not. It's your right to do whatever you want with your health, but just be aware that it's going to weigh you down every day. If the joy you get from it outweighs that, then keep smoking. If not, then make a change.

    Quit so you can breathe and not end up with COPD, heart disease or Cancer. Quit so you don't bother others with your smoke. I enjoyed it for thirty years. I quit over a year ago because I knew it was time.  My husband quit just three weeks ago because he landed himself in the hospital with congestive heart failure, lung failure and pneumonia. He is now home with oxygen. He quit smoking because he won't breath if he doesn't.

    I'm sure you are already aware of the dangers to your health due to smoking.  What I can tell you from experience:  If you do decide to quit, it has to be your decision. 

    Secondly, always remember that you are loved and there are people in this world who need you and want you in their lives for as long as possible.

    I've lost several loved ones to lung cancer and I would give anything to still have them in my life.
