ABSOLUTELY!!!: They stink, they make your breath smell and kisses sour and they cause cancer...Did i mention they expense? Decide you need help, decide you want to quit, and get help with chantix, nicoderm (nicotine patch) patches. I quit cold turkey 30 years ago, but tried about 5 times. There is no part way solution. You are an addict. Take back control.

Sure.: Cigarettes are a pathway to a host of malignancies. Lung, ENT cancers, even bladder cancer. Stop now before you stack the deck irrevocably against yourself. Good luck. Think of all the money you'll save by not buying cigarettes, too. Plus, you'll be healthier!

A 50-year-old member asked:

Why do some people smoke if they know it causes cancer? Is it actually addictive?

Addictive: Smoking is actually addictive. The fact that people do so despite knowing the cancer and other health risks sort of proves the point that it is addictive.
