Are you still smoking?

Are you still smoking? Really? Don’t you realise how bad it is for you?
I used to hate it when people said that to me when I was a smoker. The thing is, smokers only stop smoking when they are ready to, and not before.
I was 28 when I stopped smoking. Then I started again when I was 35 and stopped again at 38.
In fact, nearly 9 out of 10 smokers start before the age of 18 and almost all start smoking by age 26. When I see young people smoking, I get it.
I mean, many kids just want to look cool and be accepted by their friends. Despite the fact that fewer teenagers are smoking these days, there’s still a fair amount of peer pressure encouraging them to do so.
It’s when people get older that they have fewer reasons to keep smoking.
On average, the life expectancy of a smoker is 10 years less than a nonsmoker. Cigarette smoke contains more than 7,000 chemicals, 70 of which are known to cause cancer. So, are you ready to give up?
