Why should you never start smoking? Even a two year old should know that!! Ok, some kids say it relieves stress. Well you will get plenty of relaxation if you keep smoking. You'll be DEAD!!!!! It's no surprise; it's just plain stupid!! Just because an overgrown camel, a yee-ha cowboy, or family members smoke, THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE TO!!!!! I don't know about you, but I don't think we should sell cigarettes. Sure, a lot of people will lose jobs; but they should go to college and get a good job. Maybe a professional sports star or a lawyer.
Smoking can prevent you from having a good career.
If you are already smoking, why should you stop? Listen to me or not; it's up to you. If you have asthma, like me, STOP!! I am never going to smoke because it's even worse for us asthma patients. I should know. My mom works in a hospital, and she tells me when people come in from asthma attacks and they smoked. I am glad my mom told me about this; it is a lesson I hope to keep for life.
Well, if you decide to start or keep smoking, go ahead. I don't care. It's your life on the life on the line; not mine.
