I'm wrong here. The luxury to smoke comes at a huge price. Smoking is a strong and a dangerous addiction. Once you start there is no way to stop. I've never seen a person easily quitting it. If they don't have money they borrow money to buy it. Or beg for a cigarette from colleagues or friends. Tobacco companies are making billions and money is coming at the cost of lives of millions of people. After diving deep I came across an ad of Marlboro of the 70s. The campaign was on when cigarette advertisements were banned in the us. Search it on YouTube. The campaign was "Marlboro man" who successfully managed to convince people to take smoking as the ad was wonderfully made to associate cigarettes with manliness. After watching the Marlboro man who comes on a horse as a coyboy, everyone desired to be a Marlboro man. Such is the impact of advertising and it paid a major role in glamorizing cigarettes and making millions addict.
