Burns is caused by smoking which starts fires.

The heart will start to speed up and you will soon run out of breath very quickly.

3 reasons why I don't use tobacco

Body, Brain, Addiction

Addiction

The addiction caused by tobacco is caused by nicotine which will imitate your happy chemicals and cause you to feel really happy for a short period of time and it takes more smoking to get that same feeling

2nd hand smoke

2nd hand smoke is just as bad as smoking because the smoke that comes out of a smokers mouth has the same chemicals as smoking and will cause the same diseases as smoking.
