Basically what I want to know is why do people start smoking?

See now - this is a primary example of how anti-smokers get the script wrong!
Smoking aggrevates asthma and makes it worse - right? And that is right because you all have read the studies and that was the conclusion right?
Except that smokers - particularly smokers with asthma know that smoking a cigarette actually helps asthma (it may have to do with temperature)
Smokers also know that it is not smoking that makes you cough - its quitting smoking~

Nicotine does increase insulin, this can give people more energy sometimes.
eating and jogging are exactly the same as smoking
Smoking has many immediate benefits but is also for pleasure.
Its all activities that human beings do!
The fact that you said you were only here to ask a question but immediately provided a description of smoking that is 100 % negative without any recognition of the pleasure and the fact that even when people tell you its for the pleasure is what really gives you away.
