Is there any advantages of smoking?

When did you start and why? cigarettes primarily I just have to say that I am blown away at the honesty in all of your answers. I ve never smoked myself but lost my grandfather to cancer who was more of a father than my biological one. My brother smokes, my sister used to smoke, I just can t understand why some do and some don t, but you all helped.

No. I have never smoked. I hate that habit, and what "it cost me"... My Mother. My late Mother was life-long smoker. She eventually developed the disease, "Pulmonary Fibrosis". The doctors told her that her smoking contributed to her development of the disease. She at first found that hard to believe, since she was a "light" smoker at just 8 cigarettes per day. Also, her cigarettes were of the "Light" variety ("Carlton 120 Ultra Lights"). There is no valid to reason to smoke in my opinion. It's not glamourous. It's not "cool". It's not healthy. However, it is literally "Money up in smoke"
