Why do people liked to smoke?

Report as

there are addictive drugs in cigarettes, that is why nicotine patches are supposed to help people quit.... they give out doses of the drug any slowly give you less as you continue.

Well, it relaxes me plus I'm addicted. Started smoking in the mid 1970's & have quit several times. Always go back to it when I get mad or stressed. It's just a rebel thing but the addiction is the real factor.

doesn't sound like you've ever quit

Oh yes I have. Something just makes me think I can just smoke one & bingo, I'm back at it. It's like an alcoholic. They have proven nicotine is harder to kick then heroin + they have no smoking rehabs you can go to like they do for drug addicts or alcoholics. I know these are just excuses but this is what most smokers will tell you. I know, I know...just say "NO".

Ya I understand how you feel I have been smoking since I was 13 and now I'm 32 I have tried quitting a couple times with no success.

Chantix really works but it's expensive. I gave up on it because of the cost. I know, that's just an excuse when cigarettes cost more. I also think if you have a rebel personality it causes you to keep smoking. When I started all the information wasn't available like there is now. I will not let any of my young friends bum a cigarette from me. LOL. Also when I was in my tweens, they allowed you to buy cigarettes. I would buy them for my parents all the time. The only place you wouldn't smoke in that era was Church because of respect.

Jeffbaby, your right about nicotine being more addictive than heroine, it's actually one of the most addictive substances ! And, when you smoke packaged cigarettes; most have additives such as chlorine, benzine and more added to make the nicotine enter the bloodstream faster. Always use the comparison: sigs. W/out additives are like cocaine, and those with are like crack. Those additives are there for one specific purpose; to get the nicotine into the bloodstream faster so that your body starts craving it more and more...ergo: to get people addicted faster and have a much harder time quitting. Nice huh?
I started quite a bit before you and sad to say am still smoking:-(, tried patch, nicorette and chantix but from all I've heard; until I am absolutely determined to stop, none will make a real difference.. Oof! But, also know this; the more times you really try, the better the chances you eventually will! So until I give it the honest and true full effort.. Will have to suffer the consequences..:-(. Hope we both manage to quit one day...:-). Good luck!

Most smokers have good jobs , provide for their families and lead a very good life ! and most of them don't smoke pot or stay drunk or do any other drugs ! I smoke and I offer my time at nursing homes and cut grass for elderly people that have no one , so don't tell me I don't have anything better to do with my life , thank you !

Nicotine is a stimulant. Although it starts off more of a social thing.

It's calming and heavily addictive. Doctors say its harder to get off cigs than heroin.
