I completely agree with you opinion about smoking. I really don't understand why most kids accept cigarette offers, it makes you, your breath, and your environment smell bad. I know how you feel about losing someone to smoking . My grandfather smoked all his life. He smoked so much that hi lungs got holes in them. He had to carry around an oxygen tank for many years, I never knew him without one. Then in the past year his oxygen tank couldn't give him enough air so he had to go to the hospital. He was able to live only a few more weeks. That's why I will never start smoking.
