Okay, i don't know if this for another thread but i have a friend who has been smoking weed for close to 10 years now, he is trying to give it up but he can't get help from the health services like they do for giving up cigarettes.

Can anyone suggest way for him to give up and what are the health damages associated with long-time weed use??

We all know, or at least, We've all heard at one time or the other that smokers are liable to die young. I've also read that that the cigarrette stick contains nicotine which, though a stimulant, damages the lungs. Within a short time, one may not feel the dangerous effect but in the long run, the effect builds up, reducing one's life span and exposing one to many respiratory diseases, reduced sexuality, low sperm count ( danger of miscarriage and diseased babies for women), bad breath, reduced immunity, discoloured dentition etc. I even read that scientists have proven that a stick of cigarrette reduces one's life span by 9 seconds. Passive smokers(Those who stay near smokers and unconsciously inhale the smoke) are not left out. Though I used to smoke, but on realizing this, i tried so hard and finally stopped. Thank God. On this premise, therefore, i urge all smokers especially my dear Nairalanders to stop. May you all live long.

I won't say I haven't been tempted to start smoking. Peer pressure can be a mutha sometimes. And I use to think you look cool holding that cigarete in your hand like you just don't give a damn. But I'm health consious and I think that's probably why i never picked up the habit. I have a friend who's got asthma and Tuberculosis (TB) from inhaling too much second hand smoke cause her parents were heavy smokers (and she ended up being a smoker too, go figure). I don't envy her. I definitely stay away from cigarette and people who smoke simply for health reasons, though, not out of discrimination.

I really don't like that act at all. It's crazy tho all the people I admire tend to smoke. It's very addicting because of the presence of ammonia in it. Ammonia is very addicting. I just pray my luv bird stops it.

Cigarettes are thin, like Malboro light. While Cigars are huge brown ugly things that smell really bad. The smell is really strong.

Smoking is one of the most silly habits.  It gives you bad breath and your clothes stink (regardless of mint and perfume).  Waste of money, no buzz like trees and above all gives you cancer.  But still, I can't kick the habit after all the yearly resolutions and promises that this very pack is the last.  Maybe pouring my heart out on Nairaland will do the magic.  Hopefully, but I still have my reservations.

Cigarettes relax you, and sometimes they give you a slight buzz

even tho ganja is illegal, il d rather prefer a person to smoke it than to smoke cigarrette, cigarrette serve no purpose, they dont get u high, u jus get addicted, probably the most silly but smartest invention, cause it serves no purpose yet the companies are making billions.

I do smoke socially, Maybe when in the club

I dont usually go to club anymore

Although,smoking isnt bad in some countries weather-wise ,compare to nigeria the hot and heat source and yet ppl here still smoke ,

Smoker are liable to die young in nigeria but somewhere like australia and canada where there are so much cold i will proclaim they smoke at least 2 pack in day

cigarettes cancer sticks !!! don't like them, not my cuppa, don't like being around people that smoke and i don't judge them either. My brother is a chain smoker, i tend to blame any health problem he has on smoking i.e. flu, cough etc

There they go again.The reasonable ones sayin they have no right to judge a smoker,the ones that smoke blatantly glorify smoking,and then the usual brigade of "well-bred" ones quick to condemn smoking and smokers.

As far as i'm concerned,if u have never walked in a smoker's shoes,shut ur trap and stop talking ignorantly.

it is really bad no matter the reason. your liver is suffering and your lungs dont like it. try to stop if you can.

i dont have nothing against smokers. it is better than being gay.

i advise and help them to stop smoking.

the only thing is, you wont smoke near me cuzz i will be taking the stick outt@ ya mouth each time you light it. so if you wann@ waste money, buy and come near me. we will play the game of put it in your mouth and see it under my feet.

I used to smoke but I stopped. One of the reasons I stopped was because I was out of cash. I smoked for almost 5 years. I hope I don't slip back.
