"Over 75% of the population has been exposed to smoking via passive means. Smokers are generally concerned about the health risks of smoking, but as a result of their own negative views, are reluctant to acknowledge the risks and are not supported by their friends. A more negative media portrayal of smoking may be the real culprit." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Cigarette smoking has become so embedded in our culture that some people may smoke a cigarette and never breathe a breath again. Cigarette smoking, as an important lifestyle determinant of chronic diseases, needs to be targeted in preventive screening and cessation strategies to further reduce smoking prevalence." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Tobacco (smoking, cannabis) does NOT cure disease (rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, asthma, cancer). Treating chronic disease (smoking) with smoking, smoking, cannabis alone or in combination is not a cure for disease. Rather, smoking should be reduced or discontinued." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The signs and symptoms of smoking are primarily due to tobacco, which in turn is caused by the smoke of cigarettes. They include coughing and shortness of breath, as well as nausea, a fast heart rate, headaches and weight gain. Other signs and symptoms of smoking include weight loss, skin changes, mouth or throat irritation, a dulled reflex to light touch, and decreased endurance when exercising. Smoking may result in [bladder cancer](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/bladder-cancer), COPD, cancer deaths and other problems.\n" - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Most smokers are trying to quit or have stopped. Common treatment options include counseling, nicotine replacement therapy, and smoking cessation interventions. Behavioral interventions tend to be more effective than medications. Smoking cessation interventions should be tailored to the strengths and weaknesses of each individual patient and should focus on the psychological and social barriers that are important for quitting and staying smoke-free." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Approximately 90 million Americans smoke cigarettes in a given year, and over half of that number are smokers who want to lessen their cigarette smoking. The US Preventive Services Task force's (USPSTF) 2009 report, in its guidelines for assessing the effectiveness of interventions and its guidelines on tobacco prevention, stated that evidence is sufficient to advise the clinician that smoking cessation interventions (such as nicotine replacement therapy) are probably effective with respect to reducing total cessation effort. The USPSTF also stated, however, that, because there were few good control trials, more than 10% of smokers achieved complete cessation, and little is known about whether those who cease are still at risk for subsequent smoking." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"In 2010-2013, there was a significant increase in the number of publications that reported the results of new trials with some type of pharmaceutical drug or treatment for smoking, with a significant increase in comparison with the previous 5 years. Most studies reported results of high-quality randomized trials. In general, the results were consistent with what had been reported in previous studies." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"All of the manufacturers of e-cigarettes that participated in the project report a growing use of e-cigarettes among their customers. Almost half of the respondents think that the potential risks must be considered against the health benefits of the treatment. In addition, e-cigarettes should be considered for use in smokers who prefer to quit (as opposed to smokers who have tried to quit but are not successful). There is great variability between e-cigarette companies in what terms such as "e-liquid", "liquid e-cigarette" or "e-cigarette" are preferred." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"In a recent study, findings provide evidence that most e-cigarette users cite common side effects, and it is likely that the prevalence of these side effects is influenced by product design. These side effects may affect long-term health risks associated with regular e-cigarette use and should be considered when assessing the safety of e-cigarettes in research and clinical care." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Smoked, cigarette is likely to cause many illnesses, both immediate and long-term. Most smokers begin to smoke before age 18. More than half smoked their first cigarette(s) between the ages of 17 and 20. Smoking in early adolescence increases the chances of being a heavy smoker in later life." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Findings from a recent study demonstrate that e-cigarette vapor exposures are not comparable to smoke exposures in terms of cytotoxic or genotoxic exposure in human lung cell cultures. E-cigarettes were found to be an effective alternative to combustible cigarettes in terms of nicotine delivery, vaporization and nicotine cytotoxicity, as well as tobacco smoke pollution." - Anonymous Online Contributor
