Smoking cigarettes is not always a death cause. But SOMETIMES IT IS. I used to know people who had been smoking since ever and lived many, many years. Even if they didn’t smoke their life, they smoked their health, their money, their youth.

Smoking cigarettes is not always a death cause. But SOMETIMES IT IS. I used to know people who had been smoking since ever and lived many, many years. Even if they didn’t smoke their life, they smoked their health, their money, their youth.

I still can’t understand what is the pleasure of throwing money on ashes and inhaling smoke. Life is full of beautiful things that can make us overcome stress. Then.. why cigarettes?
