There are tons of stuffs that people get addicted to. There's drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, sex, opiate and more. And for those who are in it, I say, don't lose hope. If you can't do it by yourself, then you probably need help and that is normal. Families and friends can help, but also there are many detox centers everywhere. I just wished my father would quit smoking to avoid a disease like lung cancer. Yup, am worried about him alright! I love him and want him to be healthy. Smoking also jeopardize the health of those people around him like his own family. I learned that second hand smoking is at higher risk than those who smoke themselves.
