Smoking In AmericaCigarette smoking in America is a huge problem due to the addicting nature of the habit.  The amount of people who smoke seems to be on the rise as the economy has worsened, most likely due to the stressful situations this has put thousands of Americans in.  It also appears that the amounts of teens that begin smoking are on the rise due to growing up in homes where their parents have smoked their whole lives.

Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of preventable death and serious illness among Americans.  Roughly 400,000 + Americans die from tobacco related illness and accounts for one fifth of all deaths in the US.  Tobacco also costs our nation more than $100,000,000,000 each year in medical expenses and lost productivity in the workplace.

It is estimated that there are more than 43 million adults who currently smoke in the United States, Including our president, Barack Obama Smoking In America. Of that 43 million 53% are men and 47% are women. That is really quite astounding even with all of the knowledge know as to the harm that cigarettes can cause. These statistics just go to show how powerful of a hold it has over people.

It’s not too late to quit smoking, even if you’ve been doing it for twenty years.  Stopping now can drastically reduce your chances for developing serious health complications.  There are proven methods and products available to help so that you don’t have to do it cold turkey anymore.  Don’t continue to make yourself a statistic any longer.  Do it for yourself or your loved ones!

    ” Of that 43 million 22% are men and 17% are women.” So if 22% are men and 17% are women- that only accounts for 39% of the population– who are the other smokers?

    You’re right, we had a typo there. it’s actually 53% male and 47% female. apologies for the confusion.

    This article is retarded. A lot of things humans consume is harmful to our bodies, or can be linked to health risk. I dont understand why you people care so much about what other people do to their bodies. EVERYONE is going to die eventually. smoking is a choice, and people choose to do it. I can choose to eat Mcdonalds everyday of the year. And im pretty sure i would die first compared to a smoker.

    This is totally awesome!!! I learned sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much info. LIke obama smokes! I never knew! I learned a lot.I love this sight!!!!!!!!!! :)

    Matt: Your right it’s your choice but if McDonald’s put a sign on their door that said every 5th person who eats here
    will die much sooner than they expect to, do you think that most people with a brain would still eat there? It’s not so much the dieing part of cancer that’s so bad it’s the terrible sickness you suffer while waiting to die. My precious wife got lung cancer from smoking which had spread to her brain she cried every day and suffered terribly for a whole year from the chemo and radiation treatment She was 38.

    I hate it when people smoke! Why does Barack Obama do it? Doesn’t he know he is setting a bad example for kids across North America! Smoking is stupid! You are killing your self a little bit at a time! People need to stop! It also harms people around you, it smells bad, and gives you lung cancer! Also, cigarets are expensive! If you are reading this and you are a smoker…STOP SMOKING!

  • May 1st, 2011 Review by Joe Smith

    THERE NEEDS TO BE A LAW ABOUT SMOKING! ITS STUPID! SMOKERS ARE ALSO DRUGIES AND THEY ARE IDIOTS! PEOPLE………..STOP! I agree with Mary Johanne Corena, Barack Obama is setting a bad example for kids across North America!

    Joe Smith- while I agree that smoking is a terrible habbit, I seriously doubt that smokers are druggies. If 43 million people were “druggies” don’t you think someone would notice? Think about what you are saying before posting a public comment. 100 million people have a drink more than once a week, does this mean they are all binge drinkers? C’mon!

    It’s one thing if you want to destroy your own health through this disgusting habit, but it is ABSOLUTELY MY BUSINESS when YOUR smoke goes into MY body.

  • July 28th, 2011 Review by Lance Stark

    All of you people who are taking this article and simply stating that smoking is bad are complete idiots. It’s peoples choice if they want to smoke and it’s up to you if you want to smoke or not. Stop trying to make new laws and calling smokers Druggies just because you think that smoking is such a bad thing. If you think it’s so bad then don’t do it, and if somebody else is bothering you with it just encourage them to stop, stop hanging around them or get over it! Also Obama quit smoking officially on February 9, 2011 and hasn’t started again. So he’ actually kind of setting an example for smokers to quit. Mary Johanne Corena and Joe Smith are both so incredibly wrong in both their facts and their ideals toward smoking. It shouldn’t be a compulsive hatred you should simply ignore it and not do it.

    Hey, that’s my brand in the picture.

  • August 31st, 2011 Review by chris

    Smoking DOES effect other people, about 54,000 American’s die each year due to second-hand smoke. Yes smoking is a “choice”, but is it still a choice when you want to quit? Not so much. You become a slave to these big tobacco manufacturing companies. It’s no surprise that every minute 10,000,000 cigarettes are purchased worldwide. Just proves to show that the cigarette companies have you wrapped around their pretty little finger.

    Well. If you guys want to get on your high horse about smoking, go ahead.

    But if someone is around you, smoking, just tell them to take it outside. I don’t hate smoking. It relaxes, and if people want to hurt themselves, they can. but REALLY!?

    Saying that it needs to be BANNED!? ARE YOU STUPID?

    That will make ciggarettes the next marijuana.

  • September 9th, 2011 Review by Begizew tekalign

    Just tell to them effect of tobacco in their whole life.this is enough. hey men smoking is BADDDDDD!

  • September 23rd, 2011 Review by smoker 2

    smoking is a terrible habit, but dont we all have bad habits? all of us have our addictions, whether it be video games, alcohol, shopping. just choose your poison. to everyone its something else and you all need to respect freewill. most smokers (if not all) know it will possibly kill them one day but it is their choice to do it. some people choose to go into debt for a gambling addiction or even a shopping addiction. every person should have right to do whatever it is they choose to do, whether it has a horrible effect on them or not. most of us im sure live in America and we have a thing called freedom here, respect it.

    THats so cool! I didnt know Obama smoked! Idk what the rest of the articles about, but if OBama smokes im gonna smoke too. Peace, bout to go buy a cartridge!

  • October 7th, 2011 Review by Motivatd

    Clearly this picture of Obama is really old he looks really young in this picture, I dont think he still smokes this looks like this was before he had children, for all you he is setting a bad example for kids, and on another note how many of us new he smoked before coming to this site?? so its not like he’s at the podium addressing the nation with a pack of newports, I mean c’mon Like DUH!

  • October 24th, 2011 Review by David

    There are so many reasons why we all smoke. But as long as we keep trying to quit, we will!

  • November 1st, 2011 Review by alan curtis

    The irony is that states and federal govt are addicted to tobacco tax revenues… they really cant afford to ban it, or even take a hard stand against tobacco.

  • November 5th, 2011 Review by asutin

    This website is a really good information provider it is a good idea to let the people know what is happening to them and if they don’t care then at least when they get whatever disease from it then you can say i told you so.

  • November 5th, 2011 Review by austin

    just because one person smokes does not mean you should do it just because it was on the internet does not make it a true statement and if obama even smoked then it would be a good idea not to if i were you but even so it is your choice.
