Lack of Emphathy

One of the worst habits that a man can develop is smoking. The thing that is much worse is the fact that most people begin to smoke because they think it is cool. Smoking generally begins at a very young age when there is a lot of peer pressure and a kid thinks that he must fit in to be accepted. What begins as a practice to stamp your identity ends up as an unhealthy practice not only for you but also for others.

The entire system is to be blamed. Knowing very well that smoking tobacco causes a high death rate all round the world, none of the governments make an effort to permanently ban tobacco. They give the lame reason that if there is a ban, then it will become illegal. The next in the line of fire are the people who don’t have self control.

People who very well know that it is bad for their health and others around them; they still continue doing the same. The biggest mockery of it all is that the tobacco companies sell their cigarettes in large numbers with the caption “Smoking is Injurious to Health” written all over them. It shows how they are openly exploiting the lack of common sense among people and how dumb people really are.

It shows the lack of the feeling of self and the lack of empathy. For god’s sake, smoking causes intensive damage to your lungs and mouth. It literally fries your insides and is a ticking time bomb that is ready to explode at anytime. Besides your body, it also affects your mind. It makes you weak. It makes you completely dependant on it and starts to take control over you. It makes you a slave and successfully traps the real you.
