    1. Over two thousand people die every year from smoking.
      Cigarettes also include bad chemicals like nicotine and rat poison. Nicotine is also very addictive. It is very hard to quit once you have tried a few cigarettes.

  3. I think that kids should know that smoking makes you have difficulties in sports. Because the smoke gets in your lungs and makes it hard to breath.

  13. Some effects of smoking are bad breath,yellow teeth, smelly clothes, more colds and coughs, difficulty keeping up with friends when playing sports and empty wallet-smoking is very expensive. One more thing I learned would be on average if you bought one pack of cigarettes each week it would cost 312$ in one year and if you smoke one pack of cigarettes each day it would cost 2,190$ in one year!

Some may be short term and some might be long term, for example, some short term things you come upon include bad breath, yellow teeth, hard time running or playing sports, and if you smoke a long time you can get cancer or get very sick!

  25. I learned that 1/16 students in middle school smoke, And in high school, there is less. You see, at high school, 1/5 students smoke, witch means that 4/5 students don't. So many people have been caught in the trap of smoking. which causes many ways you can die. One way this can happen, is being a heavy smoker. And that means smoking almost every day. Here are some ways to detect a smoker:
    *Bad breath
    *yellow teeth
    *smelly clothing
    *having colds and coughing more often
    *Having low endurance
    *no money

    ciggarettes are very expencive. If you buy a pack a week, you will spend $312 a year, and if you buy a pack a day,you will end up spending $2,190!

  26. Anyone who starts smoking could become addicted to it. Once you start smoking it's hard to stop!

  29. Smoking is so dangerous that the stench of cigarette is repulsive to non-smoker.
    Moreover, it wastes a lot of money. So all of us irrespective of caste, creed, colour,
    religion and age should launch a massive campain against smoking.
