Thinking of starting to smoke as a teen or even an adult? Think again!
Teens should never start smoking and I have learned from it. It makes you unhealthy, unfit, smelly and does nothing but destroy youre physical health and appearance.
Smokers who claim to only smoke a few a day are still wrecking their bodies by taking in the toxic smoke even only a few times.
A big problem with teenagers is that their friends will pressurise them to smoke because if they dont smoke, then they are not cool. This is complete rubbish, how is it cool poisoning yourself every day and reducing your life span? Yeah really cool isnt it.
If your friends are doing this to you then they are not good friends at all, tell them you are not interested in smoking. It is a disgusting habit and you should never start it at all.
Have you seen the cigarette packets lately? They are covered with images of dead people and men with mutilated throats. They are warnings to put you off and are SERIOUS warnings. You do not want to end up like those images.
If you have already began smoking and you are a teenager this is the easiest time for you to give up as you wont have smoked for very long and wont be very addicted to the disgusting nicotine.
You dont need patches and nicotine gum that other smokers may use when quitting.
Just set yourself a date, try and stay away from situations where you would normally smoke with others and get yourself free of this drug! Try chewing gum during the day and drinking plenty of water and keep yourself occupied too.
Tell your friends that you are quitting smoking and that they are not to offer you one or try and get you to smoke. If they even start teasing you, they are not good friends.
You should do this for yourself so you can be free of it and have better health and more money to enjoy spending on other things you do want and need.
If you want to speak to someone else about quitting drop into your local pharmacy and ask to speak to someone about helping you quit, they can provide all kinds of leaflets and other aids too. If you cant do that you can ring the NHS Quit Smoking Helpline on: 0800 022 4 332 7 days a week from 7am to 11pm. This number is free to call in the United Kingdom.
I hope this helps someone.
Thank you for reading...
