Hi. I am Bryan and this is a story about my grandfather and smoking. My grandfather had been smoking and didn?t realize what effect it was having on him. When my grandfather went to the doctor, he told him that his lungs weren?t too good. He started taking the medicine the doctor told him to and it started to help. Meanwhile my grandfather stopped smoking! The second time my grandfather went to the doctor, they put him on oxygen And that helped a lot. Now he is doing fine, he doesn?t need to use the oxygen anymore. I hope that you can learn about what smoking can do to your life and to your body.
