Issues: Smoking

"Smoking is so grouse..it give you bad breath" is part of a song that I remember growing-up when I was watching some anti-smoking campaign ad. Fortunately, I never smoked as I was educated enough to not touch one. It was in 6th grade when a former smoker came to share about his experiences. He stopped smoking after a hole was drilled in his throat becuase his mouth couldn't take it anymore! He had a voice box to speak, which got my attention-unfortunately, not all my peers as some continued to smoke.

A Truthful Cigarette Commercial.
"A truthful cigarette commercial that has a comical, yet truthful message about the dangers of smoking."

Why do people smoke?

Again, I'm not an expert, but my personal view are many co-factors:

-heredity: parents or family member influence
-stress
-peer pressure

Every individual starts to smoke for various reasons, and it'll take an individual to stop with their own individual way and time.

Why Stop Smoking?

I remember going to high school with a friend, and he would smoke so much going to school that I came home stinking. The drive was only 5 minutes, but my clothes would smell all day. That was one of many situations that I somehow couldn't stand-up for myself against my will-smell goood. Also, I was a second-hand smoker, which affects my health too!
