One in every three adults you meet is a cigarette smoker.
Those adults that you encounter were once teenagers which means they tried their first cigarette before their 19th birthday.
We know how it all starts- in most cases from pure curiosity. You see others, mostly adults at bus stations or in coffee shops how they smoke and suddenly you also want to try it.
Or you just started high school and all the popular kids seem to enjoy that unhealthy habit.
The media doesn’t help much either in your choice whether to try cigarettes or not- it actually promotes it via tv serials or movies. Suddenly then, smoking becomes more and more acceptable.
One day you decide you are going to buy a pack of smokes, although you don’t even know how to take a drag on a cigarette. You also try it tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, the following week and soon- you become addicted.
Apart from health issues that smoking causes, it also takes a big toll on smoker´s budget.
It might sound too shocking, but from my opinion- people who smoke literally pay for their own death.
Their teeth become yellow, they have breathing problems, their skin becomes gray- and these are only “minor” problems- smoking can cause cancer.
Some people console themselves that they can stop smoking anytime, but I think that the only effective way to get rid of cigarettes is to put them out the very second you light them up. In other words when you wish to smoke, you should remind yourself to disregard that thought immediately.
What I have noticed is that many people smoke while enjoying their cup of coffee- like they connect coffee and cigarettes with emotions of happiness and relaxation.
I know it is hard to quit smoking but- let cigarette stay far away!
