ANSWER #1 of 15

No question is stupid, especially a question associated with such a controversial issue as smoking. Smoking gives the illusion of weight loss by promoting the consumption of 0 calories while suppressing appetite. Many who smoke usually replace meals with the habit, going from consuming a fair amount of calories a day to nearly nothing. That is just the illusion though. The reality is that your mind and body become flooded with innumerable negative side effects; every risk increases, every natural defense mechanism in your body weakens, and you establish a mentality of dependency on this harmful, material habit. Like in any situation, you must weigh the pros against the cons, and it is overwhelmingly obvious to those who have their priorities in check that the cons outweigh the pros, making smoking a bad decision. Living in a society with such emphasis on body image and health, it would be a shameful contradiction to try to achieve the 'perfect and healthy body' via imperfect and unhealthy means. Weight is something that can always be changed, and by various healthy and unhealthy ways. The effects of smoking are issues that are irreversible, and issues you will have to live with for the rest of your shortened life expectancy. Although the high gloss of society and the quest for flawlessness may have led you to seek drastic measures for extreme weight loss, don't fool your soul into believing that beauty is only skin deep; it is more than skin deep, and is not very attractive when you contain billions of cancer cells and smell like smoke. That is a false beauty and a new problem that you cannot smoke away. Don't waste your money, your time, your emotions, or your life on something so falsely benign as smoking that only causes you to be malignant. Instead, smoke in the essence of life; it is free and leaves you feeling rejuvenated, appreciative, and humble.

ANSWER #15 of 15

This is a very useless question because how cigarettes contain calories .cigarette is very harmful to our body. This is also immensely inadvisable since the harm to your body caused by developing a smoking habit is likely to be far greater than the harm (if any) caused by the relatively small amount of weight it would help you lose.
