WATCH: Stand-Up Comedian Talks About Being A Smoker

Lots of people smoke, despite knowing the dangers associated with it. Why?

Here, Kolkata-based stand-up comedian Anirban Dasgupta talks about the various myths associated with being a smoker (admitting that he, too, is one). For instance, commenting on people who say they only smoke when they drink, he remarks, "These guys are geniuses. They think two negatives make a positive."

He also suggests alternative methods, applicable to Indians, that could help deter people from smoking.
