People who smoke do so because they see smoking cigarette as a form of support system because they believe that smoking helps them overcome struggles, stress, anxiety, feelings of sadness or frustration. Often, it gives a pleasurable feeling especially in social gatherings of other smokers.
Sadly, smokers are more likely to fall into an addiction which can lead to devastating health problems. Many of the health problems linked to smoking can steal away a person’s quality of life long before death.
