It is Possible!
If you have already become addicted it is VERY hard to stop, but it is possible! There are also many choices of ways to do it! One of the ways is to get a patch. Then, there is the question what kind of patch? There are so many out there these days! The answer is to get the one that suits you the best. There are ones that have steps that help reduce the stess, and ones that have just one step that does it all in one. Then there is a kind of cutter that cuts just the right amount of nicotine so that a lot less goes into your lungs. Then, there is a pill you can take that gives you just the right amount of nicotine to last you through the day and to slowly let you stop smoking all together! There are many more options out there, you just have to find the one that best fits you!
The Numbers Don't Lie!
One of the scarriest things is that most of the people that smoked could have lived 10 to 15 years longer than they did. Second hand smoking can be just as dangerous as doing it yourself. It will cause over 3,000 lung cancer deaths every year it will also lead to 30,000 asthma in kids that have been open to the smoke.
Tests have shown that people that have used any kind of tobacco have the chance of having stained teeth for life, bad breath, losing your taste, and getting oral cancer! Over 3,000 kids have become smokers just today and every day another 3,000 will become smokers. The smoking level in kids 12-18 is growing as fast as can be, and we have to help! Friends don't let friends be idiots!
Go See the Truth
One of the best ways to understand what can happen to you from smoking is by going to a hospital and looking at the effect it makes! That is the best way to understand! You could look at your self in the mirror and think that you are perfectly healthy....well you're not! Because really on the inside your lungs are really turning black. They are suppose to be pink or red. If you go to that hospital and are not scared of that happening to you than you sould be! Think about it...50 people die a DAY from smoking and nicotine.
The main reason most teens start smoking is because they think it's cool or that it will solve all of their problems. Well, it won't. All it will do is create more of a problem for the life you have ahead. Now you might say no thats not why I am smoking... well then why?
Search what you know about yourself and tell yourself the truth. So what did it say? If your not sure stop and think and try to understand that even if you don't get cancer or a bad disease smoking will still take away alot of your life!
Real Life Stories!
We all have weaknesses but one of the worst ones is being addicted to smoking. There are about a hundred different true stories we could tell you, but one is Claire's own grandparents. She only has one grandmother left and no grandfathers! She once had 4 grandparents but three of them made horrible decisions, they smoked! All of them died because of smoking, 2 got lung cancer and the other one already had cancer but the smoking made it even worse and she died!
My dads parents, (my grandparents) both only know me for a few months of my life! They died before I could know them, and remember them and they could know and remember me! My last grandparent, my grandma, walks 3 miles every
morning and is as fit as both my parents put together, with twice the memory and wisdom. Don't let your future kids and grandkids never know who you really are!
