How to quit smoking?

I didn’t read any of that, but i’d just like to say that if you smoke a blunt, you’re superior.
Then I humbly suggest u to read the article first...it's alright if u don't agree after reading this...one thing is that we take 'good health' for granted..If v precisely knew how it's gonna get effected by smoking or other harmful habits..We might actually quit somethings even if they wud mk us look cool or superior.

You are right. I'm sorry, I just passed a stupid comment.

Indeed, people with a strong personality look very cool when they smoke, like Chaudhry M. Afzal Khan for example. Totally love that guy's posture. Injurious health effects of cigarettes are right in their own, but the thing about looking cool is totally different from that, it wasn't a stupid comment. :)
