Stop Smoking

Smoking is bad for your health. It causes many diseases, like cancer and Emphysema. Smoking gives you bad breath and makes your teeth yellow. When you smoke, your lungs become coated in tar, and nicotine is absorbed into your bloodstream. Nicotine is very addictive and your body will crave it. So, if you don't smoke, don't start. Smoking is stupid and it is very hard to stop!
