WHY YOU SHOULDN'T SMOKE?
Today, I'm going to talk to you about why you should never start smoking, and if you currently smoke why you should quit immediately. There are many drugs in the world today that are hurting us all. The drug that I am going to talk to you about today is the drug found in cigarettes: which is nicotine. Once only a person inhales nicotine they are addicted to it. It is very hard to get off nicotine just as it would be to stop using any other drug. Every year, we lose 4.9 million people worldwide, not from aids, homicides, or even auto accidents, but from smoking, smoking kills more than all of those combined.
Although some people do not think that smoking cigarettes will directly affect their lives. They are wrong. I believe that smoking is a hazard to not only the people who smoke, but also to the people around them. Just like smokers, a non-smoker breathing second hand smoke is exposed to roughly 3,700 different chemicals. Have you ever look at the bottom of the cigarette box? Well, if you haven't, this is what it says: SMOKING MAY CAUSE LUNG CANCER, HEART DISEASE AND MAY ALSO COMPLICATE PREGNANCY. Does it not shock people that the tobacco companies are giving them a warning?
These days, it is a difficult job trying to avoid smoke. It is unhealthy and should not be forced upon everyone. Even walking down a street or going to the public area you are in danger of passive smoking. I strongly believe it should be kept out of the public and in private areas. In many countries, smoking is prohibited on public transport and in some public places, such as hospitals, schools, theatres, and cinemas, but I believe this is not enough. It is a habit not everyone contributes in and those who want to do it can but not in public.
