I've learned that smoking it more dangerous then many people think.Smoking one cig. takes away six minouts of your life,it my not seam like alot but it is.I am vary sad to say that i know many people who are throwing away their lives to these death stixs.A seventh grader who is vary specil to me smokes and he went from a straght A student to all F's.He is now in seventh grade but he started smoking in fourth and many of his friends did the same.I can't belive why he wpuld throw away his life just for cigerits.The thing that upsets me the most is that his mom knows he smokes and doesn't do a thing about it.I talked to the seventh grader about why he started smoking and he said"I started so people know i don't care about the law" and right at that point I started to cry."why would you do this to your self and your family? You are killing yourself." and all he said was "I don't care."
