I think people should never start to smoke. I think that because smoking can kill you. It's a dumb, dirty, disgusting, expensive, and deadly habit. It not only hurts you, but also the people around you, usually your family. It turns your lungs black, makes everything smell, and, in the end, kills you.

When you're at school and someone asks if you want to smoke, just say no. If they say you're a dork or you're not cool, just ignore them. I would rather be alive than trying to be cool by smoking. I see many things on TV where people are getting cancer by smoking. If you could see what a person's lungs look like after they've been smoking, you'd think twice before smoking because they could be your lungs. I am telling you never to start smoking.

If you are smoking right now, you should stop immediately. I know it is really hard to give up, but you should really try. There are a lot of ways that help people stop smoking. One way is nicotine gum. It is usually stocked in a drug store. As I said before, smoking not only hurts you, but it also hurts your family you live with. Every time they smell the smoke, it goes into their body to harm them. So if you really loved them, you would stop smoking. Cigarettes also cost a lot so you waste money on non-important cigarettes. Believe me, You should stop smoking now! You will thank me later.

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.
