Smoking Relieve Stress

Smoking relieve stress for smokers:

First question: Did you start smoking to relieve stress?

From the study that I have conducted I have found not much just starts because of stress. For this

ten years. The other seven (7) said five years or less. I noticed the ones who said they have smoked the

longest it felt so natural for them and how they looked versus the ones who just started five years and
