You either do not understand addiction

or you are in denial of the power it holds over you. And since most people, at least that I know, started while they were very young then you cannot a blanket claim that a knowledgeable decision was made to start smoking in the first place. That is why children are the targets of so many drug pushers and why the addiction takes such a strong hold.
