Introduction

Do you think that smoking is cool? Well, think again. Smoking causes cancer, heart problems and it also affects other people. If you smoke, you don’t only affect yourself, but other people to. That’s called second hand smoke. You and everyone else around you can get cancer or a disease too just because you smoke. Did you know that cancer is the number one cause of death in Canada?

If you’re a smoker and you want to try to prevent all of this, here are a few things that you can do: try to quit smoking (it may not be easy but don’t give up), don’t litter your cigarettes, instead, find a cigarette post to put a cigarette into (litter is bad for the environment). If you’re a non- smoker, the only suggestion for you is; don’t smoke. That’s the best thing that you can do for you and the environment. Now, since you know what smoking can do to you, try to quit smoking, or, don’t even put a thought on trying. Smoking is very bad for you because it affects you, and everyone else around you.
