Some people think it does look cool, and it might look cool to you too. But smoking is so not cool. You are probably asking this question because you want to look cool or be cool. First of all, no matter how cool you think it looks, it is unhealthy. You can die from smoking. It can also lead to lung cancer, and then death. Smoking is horrible, you get too many health risks, it's hard to get off of smoking and it leads to even worse things like, meth, drinking, drugs, etc. Don't try smoking just so you can look "cool", because you won't look so cool when you are coughing with a raspy voice, and then dying. I highly recommend you don't try smoking, no matter how "cool" it looks.
