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."

How can anyone take this seriously if you cant even spell? Smoking cigatettes dosent make you stupid.

The 6 minutes thing isnt true.

Get your statistics right.

how is anyone supposed to take you seriously if you can't even spell? and smoking one cigarette will not take six minutes from your life and im pretty sure it won't make you so stupid that you go from straight A's to F's. I personally don't smoke ciggaretes, but i dont mind if others do.

That statistic is complete BS. There is no way to tell that a person loses six minutes of life from each cigarette; it's a myth that arose from the fact that every square takes about six minutes to smoke for someone who doesn't smoke uncommonly quickly and goes all the way down to the filter. Obviously this kid's grades didn't drop for the simple fact of him having nicotine in his system. If his mom doesn't care that he smokes there are clearly problems at home that are dictating his school life as well as his personal choices. The smoking is a product of these bad things, the bad things aren't a product of the smoking.

Age really doesn't matter. Adults always say "Oh, you can't feel that strongly about something because you're too young." But your youth is when you have to fight the hardest to make your point heard. So keep fighting! :)

This is a good article. Although the spelling DOES leave something to be desired (but that can be fixed =]), I can tell just by reading this short article that this is something you're passionate about. I can see that your heart is in this, and I can feel the pain that comes with that. I really admire you for this article. Make sure to keep fighting for what you believe in, because I think that you could make a difference. Keep writing! :)

This article is true, smoking is bad. But I would like to revise the grammatical errors to make it a bit more understandable. All in all, a very good point you make. <3
