There are over one billion smokers worldwide. About six million of these people die every year, with 600,000 of them are non-smokers exposed to secondhand smoke. Heart and lung diseases are the most common causes of these deaths.

Don’t think that it’s fun, because most of these users want to quit but could not. It’s not that simple when you’re already addicted to it.
