Live much longer don't smoke! A message to teenagers.

Smoking is  glamourous ,sexy and mature,

Advertisers create this perception to lure,

Teens to smoke and feel cool,

To fit in with their friends at school.

 

Smoking creates rebellion in the family hive,

Best to quit this mistake and stay alive.

Ask your teen what made him start,

To damage the lungs,circulation and heart.

Smoking and vaping are not allowed,

Darkness lurks under that puffed out cloud.

 

Smoking leads to bad breath,

Creeps the perpertrator closer to death.

Perpetuates a chronic cough,

Yellows teeth ,impossible to get off.

Teens believe they can give up when they want,

But once your hooked nicotine will  haunt.

 

A teenager was rushed to A&E.

One lung removed due to his smoking spree.

To end your life early is no joke,

Live much longer don't smoke !

Good advice in a "marketable" format. Perhaps if tobacco and
similar substances were accompanied by images of oldies then
their appeal to youngsters would be considerably reduced.

My grandmother, mother and aunt (mothers sister) all died of lung cancer. My grandfather from throat cancer. I quit 5 years ago. There is nothing glamorous about a nicotine junkie....not now, not ever

A tidy piece Hugh. Should be part of every school's curriculum.
Careful you don't fall into that canal mate.
