Ya ultimately its up to the person, if they don't want to stop they won't. Personally I think its the chemicals messing up the brain, because nobody grows up saying I'm gonna turn 18 and smoke the rest of my life, but once they start they don't want to stop.

My 'A' class Merc has two ashtrays one each between the front seats & the back seats, also two lighters, one at each location, I don't smoke, & passengers have to honour that & refrain or they don't get to ride along.

personally i think all the people that say they are addicted to smoking is a load of crap.

i smoke for like 3 years started wen i was 12 and quit just like that.

1 day i was like fukin hell this is expensive like 30 a week so i jus said i wasnt gonna smoke n e more and i didnt u know what i did instead i chewed cocktail sticks.

its not the nicotine your addicted to its the hand movement to your mouth and its boredom get a hobby and i gurantee people find it easier to quit

Ya the nicotine addiction so I've heard is broken within the first week of quitting, but the killer is when you usually have a cigarette at the same time everyday say on your break, when that time comes around you'll be craving it a lot thats when you pop in a piece of gum and just try to do something to keep busy.

Ive never smoked anything except tried a cigar twice, never got much out of it nor did i actually manage to smoke it properly. Smokings quite hard to do physicially if you dont know what youre doing.

Same with alcohol though, alcohol is more dangerous than cannabis but cannabis is illegal and alcohols freely available, Im sure tobacco's more harmful than cannabis which I havent tried either in case you were wondering, I use alcohol

Well I lost my brother, an aunt & two cousins to lung cancer, yet couldn't break the habit, ages? my brother was in his late sixties, the aunt was 48, the two cousins were 28 & thirty two, so don't tell me that addiction is a load of crap, all four had everything to live for, but they still succumbed.

Banning cigarettes is easy for the people that don't smoke, but the people who do smoke, and smoke consistently like a pack or more per day are really going to find it difficult for them to stop. I mean theres something keeping them on the drug because I'd be really surprised if most if not all people knew that cigarettes are bad for them. In the perspective of those people really hooked, lots of them just figure, their life sucks anyway and they might as well end it as quickly as they can, and why not satisfy a fix to cigarette smoke while they're at it, or they could think it's just taking years off the end, which would probably be miserable anyways. That being said it's even hard for people to convince someone to try stopping, let alone stopping and succeeding. Addiction is just something you can't fight unless you really want to and really will do anything to get away from it. You have to convince yourself entirely that you don't want it and keep that promise to yourself, it's too much to ask for from everyone. Really, the best way to ween the world off drugs like this lies in the influence of the parents and teaching the children when they're still young and actually take in what you say. You can get hours and hours of drug education in school, but it's not going to do jack if your role models at home clearly don't care, and if the parents only start preaching this topic when their children have started, they've started a lifetime too late.

sorry brookfield although this is obviuosly a sensitive subject for you i have to say its all about will power because if they were put in a position without cigarettes and that they could not get hold of them like on a cruise that lost their supply they would do without them correct ?

therefore if they choose to give up they can

Depends which casinos. The more expensive ones have good ventilation systems, so the smoke isn't really that noticeable unless you were standing within the immediate vicinity of a smoker. I will agree that the buffets are awesome. Especially the one at the Bellagio.

Though I am against smoking, I have to say that I would be against a ban on smoking. It may be harmful to your health, but people have the right to do what they want to their bodies. Personal choice is a key belief in American value and banning it would be like trying to ban the ability to keep firearms. It's the people's responsibility to educate themselves about the dangers of smoking.

It's a personal choice of mine not to smoke. Personally I think it's something gross and something I don't need to make me look cool.
