Do you want to hear something stupid? Teenagers that have never smoked before, are starting everyday. I personally feel that Smoking is a stupid mistake and will destroy your life forever.

Scientists have concluded that, usually, when you have parents that smoke, the kids are more likely to smoke. Maybe the D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) officers could put together a program for the adults, that tells them how what they are doing affects the children and the other people in the household.

Cigarette prices have gone up in the past years, but have not been so expensive that people can't afford them. I think that tobacco prices should be outrageous, so that the kids and teenagers, especially, might keep their hands off of them.

As for me, I have already made up my mind. I know that I will never smoke, even if I am pressured to. I will just say "NO". Now, It's up to you. So what are you going to decide to do?

E-Cigarettes Don't Help Cancer Patients Quit Smoking

Sep 24, 2014 - Smokers with cancer who used e-cigarettes along with traditional cigarettes were more dependent on nicotine than those who didn't use the devices, a Memorial Sloan Kettering study found. These patients were also just as likely -- or less likely -- to have quit smoking than patients who didn't use e-cigarettes.
