Smoking is unhealthy, has a negative impact on your body and makes you become addicted to it. Generally, this is a widespread knowledge, but there are still way too many smokers out there. People tend to not overthink their consumption patterns on a daily basis and this is why they voluntary ignore the destroying effects of smoking. But smoking is also an expensive costume, as a lot of smokers might confirm when they take a look at what a package of cigarettes or tobacco cost today.
There is no difference whether you smoke cigarettes, cigars or pipes. And also the popular, seemingly cool shisha that is often smoked in Arabic countries is not a healthy alternative and should be consumed by teenagers.
