Respecting Individuality

Everyone is unique and we make our decision and choices base on what we believe is right or wrong. Our choice may be influenced by our culture, tradition, and lifestyle but at the end of the day we all know that we have to take full responsibility of the outcome, good or bad.

I will be honest, I don't like smoking and I don't want any of my immediate family to get into it. Of course, I can't tell everyone on what to do especially the grown family members. My role is maybe to remind them by presenting fact and consequences of smoking. I would like my family to understand that smoking doesn't only pose dangerous to their health but also can cost them money that could have been set aside for rainy days.

Just like any clan, I have distant cousins and relatives who smoke and I respect them and their choice and they respect my views in return. Some of them are using cigarette but some smoke cigars. The older folks are ones the mostly prefer cigar. If they can't find any good cigar in the store nearby they use the internet to shop. They said that for a long time now they have been trying to buy dutch master cigars but didn't get the chance to materialize the plan. They ask me if I heard about it and I told them I didn't obviously because I am not into it.
How about you, what is your thought on this matter?
