Smoking in 2011

Here a puff there a puff everywhere a puff puff. All around the island Jamaicans can be seen puffing away at their cigarettes. Even though cigarettes are one of the primary ways in which Jamaicans give themselves lung cancer.
Most Jamaican men do not know that smoking can affect their love life.
According quitsmoking.com website men who smoke are 50 percent more likely to suffer from impotence than men who do not smoke. Nicotine acts as a vasoconstrictor.
That is, it constricts the arteries and blood vessels—including those that are responsible for a man's erection. Nicotine also lowers testosterone and other hormone levels in the blood. And it increases the concentrations of fatty acids in the blood, leading to clogged arteries and further restricting blood flow to the genitals.
ARE YOU A SMOKER? How do you feel about people who smoke?

No. Not a smoker. I think smoking is bad for you and I would advise everyone not to think about smoking, and also remember that second had smoking is also bad for us too.

I am not a smoker, even though I've tried it quite a few times before out of cuuriousity. Personally, I find smoking repulsive. It not only harms the smoker, but the individuals around who are forced to inhale the second-hand smoke. I think smoking should be banned in all public places. The only place people should be allowed to smoke is the privacy of their homes.

I personally do not understand why the risks are there and persons still see the need to smoke. But then again I guess its just like drinking.

I know alot of smokers and impotence does not affect the smokers decisions as the craving I was told is much more influential.

Since smoking poses so many health risks, I still cannot understand why some persons continue to do this. However, the health risks is not the only reason why I would never smoke. The addictive property of nicotine is horrible. Seeing person standing in below zero temperatures just to smoke is something I never want to deal with.

If smoking does all of this why are we "THE PEOPLE" still smoking if it causes such defects to the male body. I often times ask 'why do you smoke?' and the response is 'why don't you smoke?' is that really an answer or just saying that I "THE PEOPLE" don't really have a reason I just saw my father doing it so I do it it also. Wouldn't this be a monkey se monkey do scenario. This is one of the leading cause of death not to mention the disfunctions of the body and it's a strong growing habbits that affects more than half or nearly half the population of the world. Are we just plain stupid or what?

First and foremost I do not smoke but most of these smokers dont care about their heatlth or their love life the pleasurable feeling that these smokers for some minutes is what they really care about.As it relates to thier love life as long as Viagra and other enhancing products are around they will be good. I think they need to close down all the cigar making companies it wont necessarily be the solution but atleast contribute to the solution.

Smoking is harmful and cause a lot of problems in the later stage. It can cause cancer as well. It is important to quit smoking as soon as possible.
