My uncle family have a maid and the total monthly income is between 20,0000 - 29,999.
My uncle smokes and his view of smoking is strongly approves although he know it's very harmful , but my wife's uncle strongly disapproves the smoking and many time tried to convinces his husband to lift off the smoking but no any response from my uncle.
The reason push my uncle to start smoking was peer pressure from his friends , at the beginning his friends defies my uncle to smoking and my uncle approved this , and then get used to it , this the beginning of smoking with my uncle.
When I asked my uncle about the difficulty to give up smoking he said me it's very difficult especially after more ten years from smoking .but when I asked the mother If a person who is a regular smoking asked to marry her daughter , she said definitely refuse because from her experience received many difficult things , difficult dealing with her husband and every day she feel anxiety to lose her husband because the smoking.
