Although smoking is an unhealthily habit, about 20 percent of young people smoke. The number of smoking people is increasing every year and it creates problems for other people and for themselves. Smoking is very popular and among teenagers, especially among boys.
The biggest harm that smoking can do is that it affects people’s health. It may cause lung cancer, heart disease and other serious illnesses. One out of six deaths in the world happens because of smoking.
There are several reasons whhy people start smoking. Teenagers often do what their parents do and if their parents smoke, they also want to try it. Another reason is that if everybody smokes in a big company of friends, a person also smokes, because he doesn’t want to be different from others. And of course as you all know advertisements have a big influence on people. The same happens with cigarette advertisements. This problem was bigger few years ago, when cigarette advertisements were aloud. I think our government made a right decision, that they banned cigarette promotion. Finally people stopped discussing about negative influence that cigarette advertisement do. So I can say that smoking among teenagers is a matter of fashion and among adults is
Also smoking is a big problem I schools. Lots of pupils during the break time go to the school yard and smoke. Such behaviour diminishes school prestige. If I were s schoolmistress I would try to change the situation. I would try to make pupils to get familiar with harm of smoking. I would invite a doctor to speak about dangerous of smoking and about serious illnesses. I would also give warning to people, who smoke and after three warnings I would invite parents to school to talk about pupils behaviour. Not only the school has to be responsible for pupils but also parents should take care of their children and their children’s heealth. I think parents shouldn’t punish their children for smoking, but they should explain why smoking is a bad habit. If parents punish their children, children always do the opposite.
Smoking is a big problem in all the world. Until now there is no way to solve the problem. More and more people start smoking , but of course lots of people get rid of this harmful habit.
