Young people smoke because they think it will calm them down and make them not as stressed. It is hard to quit smoking because the user gets addicted. Once the user gets addicted t the nicotine in a cigarette it could take years before that person can quit smoking. I actually don’t know many people who smoke so it has never really affected me or my life. The few people who I do know who smoke aren’t very close too me anyways, so again they don’t affect me. I chose to live tobacco free because I know that smoking can lead to cancers and other health risk. I don’t want my life cut short for an addiction I can avoid. Also choosing to love tobacco free also means that I should al least tell others of the possible health risks of smoking because in the long run smoking will eventually lead to death.
