Why Smoking is Hazardous

preventable causes of death in our society. About one in five deaths in the US are results
from using tobacco. About half all of smokers between of 35 and 69 die ahead of time the
new smokers replace them. Smokers could be losing an average of 20 to 25 years of their
life. Sometime Iím around an adult that smokes and when he smokes, it makes the house
smell awful. I have many reasons to why I think this. It gives you aliment, shortens your
life, can affect others around you and yourself. Every time you smoke, itís like cutting 5
minutes of your life and there are many ways to quit. About 430,000 people in the US die
every year from smoking related problems.


Smoking is an expensive habit. The average cost of a pack is $3.00 and the average smoker
smokes a pack a day. In one year thatís wasting about $1095 or more a year! Thatís a lot
of money. The Tobacco industry makes billions of dollars each year and they donít care
