10 reasons why you should continue smoking

-Arjun Gurung

Your friends ask you to quit smoking, your wife scolds you and if you've not yet tied the knot, the girl you're with nags you throw away the 'horrid little stick'. The cigarette company sells it with a warning label in small prints. So, should you quit smoking? Read and make up your mind.

  1. Cigarette smoking contributes a lot to our national economy. Let’s keep up the good work.
     
  2. It is estimated that every cigarette you smoke takes away 12 minutes of your life. Phew! You must‘ve thought it was 20!
     
  3. A lot of business deals can be made over a puff of smoke.
     
  4. Your wife hates it. It’s a great chance to get back at her for not letting you watch the Saturday night football game.
     
  5. An injection of one drop of nicotine in its purest form (70 mg) will kill an average-sized man. Thankfully a cigarette only contains a tiny amount (between .1 and 2.2 mg) of nicotine in a diluted form. That’s not so bad.
     
  6. Look at it this way, smoking is another form of controlling population.
     
  7. In many countries, a special type of tax is fined on every stick of Cigarette sold, which in turn goes to funding cancer researches. Smokers are thus playing an important role!
     
  8. Smoking helps you adapt better to an already dusty environment like Kathmandu’s. The age old saying of fighting fire with fire is very much true.
     
  9. Smoking saves you the problem of having to buy stuff. With much of your money being spent on the 3 packs a day habit, you won't have the heart (or the money)to buy anything else.
     
  10. Smoking makes you a wiser person. Just look at Saif Ali Khan!
