There are drugs in the world that are hurting us all. The drug that I am going to talk about is the drug found in cigarettes: nicotine. Although some good people do no think that smoking cigarettes will directly affect their lives, they are wrong because smoking is nothing but a shortcut to dying.

Smoking is not a joke, although we see it on TV, in comics, and maybe right in front of our faces, it does affect our health. Did you ever take a close look at the bottom of the cigarette box? Well, if you did not, this is what it says: SMOKING MAY CAUSE LUNG CANCER, HEART DISEASE AND MAY ALSO COMPLICATE PREGNANCY. Does it not because once you start you will not be able to stop.

If you are considering smoking, just remember it does not just costs two dollars a pack. It will also cost you your health and maybe even your life.

Why should we never start smoking? Even a three year old should know that!! 77 percent of people who smoke do it out of stress and peer pressure, but that is not an excuse! Well, they will get plenty of relaxation if they keep smoking because they will be dead!! Just because friends and family members smoke, that does not mean we have to!!!
