Would you like to quit smoking? Well… you should. In today’s day and age, we know for a definite fact that smoking is not good for you or the people around you. But still, millions of people continue or begin smoking. Many begin this highly unhealthy habit in their early teenage years. Why is that? That`s the million dollar question. With all the information and decades of studies, we have today, smoking is still considered normal and at times “cool”.
There is still an impression amongst youth that smoking is cool and associated with “living on the edge” or being social and part of the group. Most people continue smoking because it has a social aspect to it and it is also associated with relaxation. They also continue smoking because they are still in okay health or their health has not become affected a great deal by the habit.
A lot of people continue smoking because they just cannot stop. Even though the smoking habit has affected their health in a great negative way and their life expectancy has become shortened with decades because of a disease caused by their smoking.
On the positive side, we see that adult smoking rates has fallen from 43 percent in 1965 to about 18 percent today. To be able to continue this declining rate, good and correct information is critical. Thousands of young people (under 18) begin smoking each and every day and years later they suffer the consequences.
This website will either motivate you to quit smoking for good or help you to inform someone you care about so they themselves can understand what they are up against if they continue a habit that causes thousands and thousands of people to die prematurely each year.
