Smoking

Almost everyone knows that smoking causes cancer, emphysema, and heart disease; that it can shorten your life by ten years or more; and that it causes thousands of dollars each year. So how come people are still lighting it up? The answer, in a word, is addiction. Smoking is a hard habit to break because tobacco contains nicotine, which is highly addictive. People start smoking for a variety of reasons. Some think it's cool. Others start because there friends or family members smoke. Statistics show that 9 out of 10 users star before they are 18 years old. Most adults that started in their teens never thought they would become addicted. That's why people say that it is much easier to not start smoking at all. There are no physical reasons to start smoking. The body doesn't need tobacco the way it needs food, water, sleep, and exercise. And many of the chemicals in cigarettes, like nicotine and cyanide, are actually poisons that can kill you in high doses.
