Cigarettes and smoking
If someone in your family smokes, you have a problem.
cigarette (and cigar) smoke is one of the most common forms of pollution
on the planet. It's one you're bound to have come across even if no one
in your family smokes. Smoke from cigarettes harms everyone's health.
It even harms people if they don't smoke themselves but
breathe other people's smoke. So if someone in your family does
smoke, why not see if you can
them to stop?
Why do people smoke? I don't know; do you? None of my cool penguin friends do. It used to be trendy to smoke but in recent years, many countries have banned smoking in public buildings. The result is that smoking is finally going out of fashion — which is good news for everyone except the tobacco companies. Today, there are many ways to help smokers quit their habit. One of the most popular is called vaping : a smoker wanting to quit 'smokes' an e-cigarette instead. And it seems to work — for adults anyway. But there are worries that high school kids may take up vaping which could be a pathway to taking up smoking tobacco.
