Ako I love smoking.
Plus another thing to mention is that a cigarette pack is 40 pesos. Imagine how much tax is on it. With us heavy smokers and drinkers the country is actually making its money from the insane high taxes. So we should be somewhat happy. If more people decided to quit smoking then another layman brother effect might occur.
It's easy to say "screw all the smokers in the world". But look at the side effects that could happen....
Consider the following:
If there would be no more cigarettes in the philippines ~>
1. Less income for the government
2. A lot of land will be just wasted. Because tobaco farms consume a lot of land. There is also heavy taxes and productivity on this by the way. The people employed. They too have family. These are thousands of fellow men.
3. The side vendors selling cigarettes will loose their job. I don't believe candy will be enough to provide food on the table.
4. Your boss or husband might be a heavy smoker too. Imagine them without cigarettes? Baka mapraning sila and go nuts. Or might even consider switching countries just for the sake of freedom to smoke.
5. How will heavy smokers deal with pressure? You think it's easy? And if you do find it easy, the majority doesn't find it easy.
So before saying stuff like ban smoking. You have to consider what others consider. An alcoholic is an alcoholic the way that Catholics are Catholics and smokers will be smokers. Both have the same thing in common. They religiously do their deeds. If you stop them from what they are doing they will definitely get angry or have negative withdrawal symptoms. Some stuff they do might be annoying to you but some stuff also you do might be annoying to them.
It just all depends how polite you ask. If someone would approach me "Hoy tigilan mo pagyoyosi mo wala ka sa lugar. upakan kita dyan e" Then of course I will gladly stick the cigarette butt to his face. And I guess anybody would do the same. Wala mapapala kase pag violente ang appraoch kung pakiusap lang ang gusto nya.
Ang pinaka principle lang is ang way of asking and of most of all ung tono sa pakiusap.
I tried to quit to smoke before using champix. I ended up failing an attempted suicide due to the negative side effect of the depressant drug. After recovering from a mental depression from the strong mental impact of champix I decided to smoke again to my hearts content. I also never had any suicidal thoughts previously nor have any reason to but only during the time of withdrawal symptoms of quitting.
