It is addictive and some people can't help it. I saw a lady yesterday who is overly tan and smoke. She looks so old but she is nice. It was sad. Sometime, it is not of your opinion or advice. Sad to watch. People have to want to change themselves. I tried to help my brother quit and it didn't work. He has to be willing himself.
19-21 year olds are probably addicted. When they were younger, they most likely gave into peer pressure & smoked to look "cool." They also might be smoking now at 19-21 to look cool, who knows what reasons people have for smoking, all I know is that it makes you smell, gives you cancer, & cost a fortune.
19-21! The other day two 13 year old girls were asking me to go into a shop and buy them some.
I think it starts of as something they do to copy a freind that does it because they think it makes them look "cool" and rebels but than it becomes something they end up depending on and have no choice but to carry on buying to fuel their addicition
Because people are stupid man, but it's not unlike people who waste away their minds (and bodies) playing video games/watching tv, binge eating, alcoholism, even EXERCISING too much (yes, that's possible and a disorder as well). You're entitled to your opinion but I think being condescending and/or ignoring your uncle is a bit extreme, primarily because they could use your support in quitting rather than being shunned by you, which probably only adds to the problem. But ultimately, to each their own. You can never cure the world of ignorance and that is a sad fact, even the cute one's are not immune.
I really don't understand this either, I remember in college I had a little crush on this one girl. Like a few days later I saw her smoking, from then on I just lost all attraction to her, now I have 0 attraction to her, it's crazy that they don't know how it affects their attraction. It smells bad, costs a tonne of money, gives you cancer and makes everyone around you smell, I mean why do people even do it? I know people say it's just for kicks, but where do you draw the line between a good time and being a total sucker! The bad breath too, YIKES watch out for that one fellas
they might be addicted they might not be. A lot of smokers do it to fulfil a gap or something missing or ro be cool. They could just be buying them because a lot of people that age party and I myself am not a smoker but I do like smoking when I'm drinking and partying. There are too many reasons why and they probably won't like it if a random person lectures them about it.
They normally think it makes them look cool, or they are rebelling and want to do something that they are not suppose to do. If you told them they are too cute to smoke eventually one of them would get upset and you would get in trouble.
