Yep, very hard to do, but it is good in any way imaginable:
- For yourself it means a healthier life and less spending of money
- For the people around you it's heathier as well, and the smell of smoke, I've come to realize this after I quit, is really horrible.
- And, if enough people would stop smoking it would make the land used for growing tobacco available to other, more useful crops, or to reforestation. Of course you could think jobs would be lost due to this, and that's what the tobacco lobbies managed to convince the goverments of, but nearly everything in this specific industry, from the planting to the final product, is automated nowadays, so the people losing their jobs would really be insignificant if we look at the huge numbers of unemployed created by the financial crisis.
