Cigaretts - good or bad?

Do you think smoking is a good idea?

Look Older

Smoking can make you look a lot older than you actually are. “Smoking causes you to get more wrinkles at an earlier age.” (pg.16) “Smoking also causes teeth to turn yellow.” (pg.16) Teeth turn yellow because of the chemicals and other ingredients in a cigarette. “Lastly, it makes your hair turn dull.” (pg.16)

Problems in a Workplace

Smoking can also make you have problems in a workplace. “In 1985, 27 percent of all companies banned or restricted smoking inside their buildings. (pg.15)“Now the number is to 56 percent and includes a companies like the United States Postal Office.” (pg.15)The percentage of places that banned or restricted smoking is hard for smokers to get a job because they smoke a few cigarettes a day when it’s not allowed. “Even the white house is completely smoke free now.” (pg.15)

Health Issues

Smoking causes health issues. “One out of three young people die of a smoking related disease.” (pg.10) “Nicotine and tar found in cigarettes are just a few of the hundreds of chemicals in a smoker’s lungs.” (pg11) “Nicotine, a highly addictive drug works like a stimulant. Nicotine is actually poison, which taken in large doses, can kill a person by paralyzing breathing muscles.” (pg.11) Actually, a lot of smokers think that smoking is good for you. Well, it’s not. Cigarettes have a lot of tobacco and nicotine, stuff like that. That stuff is poison. It is not good for you. Cigarettes can cause people to have a shorter life too. It shortens their life by at least ten years.
