Smoking is probably one of the worst things you could do in your life. I've been taught about the dangers of smoking from my parents and the D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program. D.A.R.E. teaches you how to handle peer pressure and how harmful smoking is. You could get very sick or even die from lung cancer. If you do smoke, you should stop. Smoking makes you have bad breath, yellow teeth, and it can cost $2000 a year. If you do smoke, you should just love what your lungs look like. They look like someone dropped a can of tar on them. You shouldn't waste your life on smoking. It's not worth it.
