Like your spouse, friends and most importantly your KIDS. A study found that in household where both parents smoke, Young children have a 75 percent increased risk of respiratory illness, furthermore, research show that second hand smoke actually increases the symptoms of Asthma among children. To tell you the truth, when my little baby girl was diagnosed with Asthma, I said to myself, that’s it,,,it is time to quit, it was not easy , but I did it, just her and for my self.
In the UK study shows that 17000 children under the age of 5 admitted to hospitals each year because of second hand smoke, so who really wants to be the reason for a young kid to be admitted to the hospital. To make things even harder for all of you smokers….. young kids actually know that second hand smoking really hurt their health. A study concluded that 9 out of 10 kids believe that the smoke around them is damaging there health. So can you look at these kids in the Eyes and tell them, yeah I am smoking around you and I am damaging your health.
The other reason to stop smoking is MONEY!!!!! Price of cigarettes keep going up and up, and I have some bad news for you smokers, it is going up a little more this summer. Starting July 1st, price is going up by $ 4. 00 a carton. So a pack of cigareetes will be over $ 10 a pack. That is about 300 a month. So that means if you are a smoker and you quit today, it would be like getting about $ 5000. 00 raise before taxes. That is a nice raise, is not it??????
That is not counting the other expenses associated with smoking, like extra bill for dry cleaning or sometimes fines for smoking in hotels of rental cars. I know, at some point , smoking was considered cool, because cool and famous people smoked, so many people smoked just to be like them, and I was one of those people. But things things changed today, people look at smoking differently, and a lot of people consider it plain stupid to smoke. Even smokers more that none smokers. So what r u waiting for.
So all of you smokers out there, do your self and poket a favor and quit today…Acording to History today, each year smoking kills more people than Aids, alcohol, drug abuse, murders and fires combined. If you don’t want to quit for your self do it for your loved ones, do it for your kids, because they want you to stop. In an elementary school, a study showed that 8 out of 10 kids would rather see their parents stop smoking then giving them pocket money!!!! so please, if you smoke stop today, if you know someone who smokes you should talk to them and try to convince them to stop, because it is affecting all of us.
