Also there's nothing more embarassing than having some kind of love talisman, like a potato carved in likeness of your lover and stuck with pins, fall out of your purse in front of him and to have to explain that. Also, many spells that you find in self-help witch craft books on market such as those by Scott Cunningham, Anna Riva and The Supermarket Sorceress often ask you to create some really disgusting object, like a melon filled with raw liver or an orange stuck with needles and cloves and hide it in your house for a full cycle of a moon. No wonder witches houses often smell -- they've got all this rotting food lying around house.
Of course, main reason witchcraft is so impractical is that people tend to ignore 3X3X3 rule: whatever you wish upon another will come back on you three fold. This of course does not jive with human nature and I don't know a single witch, who didn't just once, wish something bad on someone else while thinking "It's O.K. Whatever comes back I can take it."
The next thing you know you're spending all your free time, trying to reverse and fix curses that you have sent to others that have rebounded on you threefold. Not too practical! Just like in that movie Practical Magic where Nicole Kidman character manifests a lover and ends up with a rapist. If witchcraft could be practiced with a certain Zen detachment instead of a desire for control, I guess we'd probably have perfect religion. In meantime, watch out for dangerous amateur magicians.
