Why young people smoke
TEENAGERS like to smoke, because initially they are attracted by advertisements and by seeing their pop and screen idols smoke in films.
They see these idols in heroic roles and so get the wrong idea about smoking. They are also attracted to smoking, when they see their friends and parents smoking and sometimes they start out of curiosity or because they think it is fun.
I hope those who are older and who can make a strong impression on young people will appreciate this and will try to stop smoking, so they can discourage young people from taking up this bad habit.
