Why You Should Not Smoke
The topic I want discuss is smoking and why you should not smoke. I am sure that you know that smoking harms your body. Then why do you continue smoking? Maybe you do it because you haven’t really become conscious about all the effects that smoking has. There are a lot of reasons why you shouldn’t smoke. Some of them are that smoking affects your health, that you spend a lot of money on cigarettes, and that when you smoke you are not respecting people around you.
The first reason why you shouldn’t smoke is that smoking affects your health. If you smoke, your physical condition will be negatively affected, so it will be very difficult for you to succeed in sports. Also, smoking produces lethal diseases like cancer and reduces the length and quality of your life. Maybe you don’t notice all the physical effects of smoking immediately, but you surely will be sorry one day.
The second reason why you shouldn’t smoke is because of all the money that you spend on it. Maybe you start smoking only when someone offers you a cigarette, but there will be a day when you will feel the need for a cigarette. By this time, you will pay whatever price to smoke, and each time you will smoke more, so you will spend more money. All the money you would spend on cigars could have be spent in something better, don’t you think?
The third reason why you shouldn’t smoke is because of the pollution the smoke causes. The earth gets dirtier every day because cigarette smoke produces ten times more pollution than diesel car exhaust. Smoking also affects the people around you. Second-hand smoking is almost as bad for your body as just smoking. According to the Body and Health Canada association, 1,000 non-smokers die of second-hand smoking per year, and that is just in Canada. Smoking will make you responsible for these deaths, so unless you want to live with the fact that you have harmed someone for the rest of your life, you shouldn’t smoke.
