Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world. I know because I’ve done it thousands of times
This quote, by Mark Twain tells us how addictive smoking is. We all know that quitting smoking is not an easy thing, but of we don’t, we can die of [insert one of the hundreds of deadly diseases due to smoking here].
There are 2 BILLION people in this world, who are going through the same condition as Mark Twain was- addiction. So why even start smoking in the first place, when we already know the result?
” title=”The Story of Bryan Curtis”>
Bryan Curtis was 13 when he started smoking 2 packs a day. Little de he know, that when just at the age of 33, he would die of Lung Cancer, leaving his wife and his 2 children all alone.
Every year, a million people like Bryan die due to lung cancer. Almost all the deaths of people who are diagnosed with lung cancer have been a smoker.
Cigarette smoking is becoming a major issue in the world day by day. Not only it kills the smoker, but more important than that, it takes away the lives of the people whol live near them as well.
This is a very creative anti-smokig ad which shows two kids trapped in a plastic bag that’s actually made out of smoke. It’s possibly implying that the parents of these children smoke a lot, and since they live with them, they are inhaling the smoke as well. This shows that everytime a smoker lights up a cigarette, he is not only ruining his life, but the lives of the people who live near them as well, like the lives of their own children.
An Invitation to Death
In between my fingers
lies a pale white stick,
I bring it towards my lips
So addictive yet, so, so sick
Camel, Marlboro, Winston
plead and pull me towards them.
And silly me, I get trapped
coughing out all the black phlegm
But little do I know
that with every breath,
I am one step nearer
“There was a young lady named Mae
Who smoked without stopping all day;
As pack followed pack,
Her lungs first turned black,
And eventually rotted away.”
-Edward Gorey (Writer, Illustrator, Poet)
This is a limerick written by Edward Gorey. Within 5 lines, he has described the life of a lady called Mae, who smoked…and eventually died. It’s funny, how what’s happened to Mae happens (or will soon happen) to 2 billion people in this world.
